Election and the Mystery of the Nazarite Vow

The Jewish Festival of Lights often seemed to me to be little more than another winter holiday that had no bearing on my own life. However, in recent yearsContinue reading “Hanukkah & the God-Man”

Hanukkah Blessings: A Christian Celebration

Today is Wednesday 17, December 2014.  For most Christians in this country (USA), today marks 9 days until Christmas.  Only 9 days of shopping left before the big day!  However today also marks the first day of Hanukkah, commonly considered the Jewish Christmas-alternative.  But Hanukkah is so much more than another not-Christmas holiday.  It hasContinue reading “Hanukkah Blessings: A Christian Celebration”
