Tonight is Hanukkah

I used to do a video a night on each of the 8 nights of Hanukkah.  You can google this blog to find them.  But tonight, I want to share a different story.  It's the story of "what-if".

What-if Jesus was conceived on Hanukkah because He is the Light of the World?

What-if Jesus was born 9 months later on the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Sukot, because He came to tabernacle among us?

What-if the "inn" was a sukkah- a temporary dwelling that is put up for the Feast of Tabernacles?

What-if the "manger" was a food-storage-crib, the place where food is kept inside the sukkot?   What better place for the "bread of life" to be placed.

What-if Jesus died on Passover because He is the Lamb who died for each of us?

What-if Jesus kept these Jewish feasts His entire life because it was what was commanded of Him?

We know that there was no "new testament" when Jesus was here on earth.  It had not been written yet.  We know that there were no "churches" as they had not been built.  We know that the Hebrews were in Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Nazareth and Galilee at that time 2000 years ago and that there were Synagogues and there was a Temple in Jerusalem.  There was no Christmas, no Santa, no tree lighting.

But there is proof of the Feasts.  Historical proof.

What-if you lived the life that He lived, not the life that's been created since His death?  Be sure to click on the links to read more.

Hanukkah - because He is the Light of the World.
