Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity
Series: “The Feast of Lights”
Since the dawn of time, forces of darkness have amassed and threatened the Jews with extinction. However, in every generation, God provided a leader who would shine the Light of God’s faithfulness. Hanukkah—the Jewish Feast of Lights harks back to a time when a cruel, anti-Semitic dictator threatened to wipe out the Hebrews. But the Lord’s Deliverer arose, lit the lamp of hope, and saved Israel. From generation to generation, Jews have lit lamps in their homes to commemorate the victory and retell the story of the Feast of Lights.

- Dr. Jeffrey Seif sets up the story of Hanukkah and the abominable Antiochus Epiphanes; wherein, the Syrian dictator overthrew Jerusalem and desecrated the Holy Temple.
