Why are Christians Celebrating Hanukkah?


Hanukkah begins sundown December 6, 2015.  Many Christians are celebrating Hanulkah this year. WHY? We study a Hebrew book-written by Hebrews; we serve a Hebrew Lord-who had Hebrew disciples; we desire to follow the first century church-which was first predominately Hebrew; and through Christ, we are grafted into a Hebrew family! It makes sense to study the Hebrew culture. To ... Read More »
