Why do you follow rabbis and celebrate chanukah?

Postby Guest » Wed Nov 17, 2010 9:27 pm

Why do you follow rabbis and celebrate chanukah? If Yahweh has never commanded it even though the Rabbis would have you believe He did, then why do you do it? Is it written in Lev 23, if not then why are you doing it?

May Yahweh’s truth shine down on you and you see the false doctrines you have been led to follow

The message of Chanukah is about resisting assimilation with worldly culture -- a message that is clearly repeated in the New Testament (e.g., Rom. 12:1-2). Since it is likely that Yeshua was born during the festival of Sukkot (i.e., Tabernacles), the season of Chanukah recalls His incarnation (i.e., conception) as the promised Savior of the World. There is a hint that Yeshua might have acknowledged the feast since He was at the Temple during the Feast of Dedication, or Chanukah (John 10:22) . Finally, Chanukah is called the "Feast of Lights." It is a great time to declaring the truth that Yeshua is our Light to a world that is filled with darkness.

There are other festivals to celebrate besides those given in Lev. 23, too. For example, we celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua as well as His birth, though these are not explicitly commanded in Leviticus.

Shalom
