  • TO PARTICIPATE AND ENGAGE
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:22.100
  • IN THE HOLIDAY ITSELF.
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:24.000
  • - YEAH, BECAUSE
  • 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:24.110
  • THIS IS AN EVENT
  • 00:01:24.110 --> 00:01:27.020
  • THAT APPLIES TO EVERY BELIEVER
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:29.090
  • IN THE LIVING GOD,
  • 00:01:29.090 --> 00:01:31.010
  • THE GOD OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:31.260

  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:01:32.230 --> 00:01:33.080
  • - AND MORE IMPORTANTLY EVEN,
  • 00:01:33.080 --> 00:01:34.170
  • OR MAYBE NOT MORE
  • 00:01:34.170 --> 00:01:35.240
  • IMPORTANTLY, BUT ANOTHER THING
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:37.290
  • I WANT TO MENTION
  • 00:01:37.290 --> 00:01:38.190
  • THAT'S IMPORTANT, IS THAT
  • 00:01:38.190 --> 00:01:40.090
  • IT ALSO CELEBRATES YESHUA.
  • 00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:43.060
  • IT CELEBRATES JESUS.
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:44.090
  • THERE'S A DIRECT APPLICATION
  • 00:01:44.090 --> 00:01:46.080
  • TO THE OBSERVANCE OF HANUKKAH
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:48.110
  • AND OUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:50.110
  • WITH THE MESSIAH
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:52.090
  • OF ISRAEL, JESUS,
  • 00:01:52.090 --> 00:01:53.100
  • JESUS OF NAZARETH.
  • 00:01:53.100 --> 00:01:54.220
  • - YEAH, IT'S SO IMPORTANT
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:55.110
  • NOW, JONATHAN,
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:56.090
  • I HAVE A QUESTION
  • 00:01:56.090 --> 00:01:56.240
  • RIGHT OFF THE BAT.
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:58.010
  • YOU MAY BE LOOKING
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:01:58.260
  • IN YOUR BIBLE AT HOME, SAYING,
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:00.070
  • I DON'T SEE HANUKKAH IN HERE.
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:01.230
  • IT'S NOT ONE
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:02.130
  • OF THE BIBLICAL FEASTS.
  • 00:02:02.130 --> 00:02:03.080
  • WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THAT?
  • 00:02:03.080 --> 00:02:04.260
  • IS IT REALLY A BIBLICAL HOLIDAY?
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:08.000
  • - YEAH, THERE'S A FEW QUESTIONS
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:09.020
  • IN THERE THAT
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:09.210
  • WE NEED TO EXPLORE.
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:10.200
  • FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:02:10.200 --> 00:02:11.020
  • IS HANUKKAH MENTIONED,
  • 00:02:11.020 --> 00:02:13.200
  • HISTORICAL HANUKKAH MENTIONED
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:15.100
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT?
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.280
  • AND THE ANSWER IS NO,
  • 00:02:16.280 --> 00:02:18.200
  • BECAUSE IT TOOK PLACE
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:19.150
  • DURING WHAT WE CALL
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:20.290
  • THE INTERTESTAMENTAL PERIOD.
  • 00:02:20.290 --> 00:02:22.210
  • - WHAT'S THE
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:23.210
  • INTERTESTAMENTAL PERIOD?
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:25.050
  • IT'S THE PERIOD BETWEEN
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:26.060
  • THE COMPLETION OF THE TORAH,
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:29.120
  • THE WRITINGS AND THE PROPHETS,
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:31.190
  • AND THEIR CANONIZATION.
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:34.290
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THE DECISION
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:36.110
  • OF WHAT WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:37.040
  • IN THE JEWISH SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:38.190
  • OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:40.240
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:41.230
  • - SO, THE STORY TAKES PLACE
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:42.200
  • IN ACTUALLY ABOUT,
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:45.060
  • AND ACCORDING
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:45.200
  • TO HISTORIANS, 167 B.C.
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:48.210
  • - ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:02:48.210 --> 00:02:49.160
  • - SO, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:50.110
  • ALMOST 200 YEARS
  • 00:02:50.110 --> 00:02:51.130
  • BEFORE JESUS COMES,
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:53.150
  • ABOUT 230 YEARS,
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:56.120
  • 250 YEARS BEFORE
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.070
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT BEGINS
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:00.230
  • TO BE PENNED.
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:01.250
  • SO, THIS IS
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:02.220
  • THE INTERTESTAMENTAL PERIOD.
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:04.110
  • WE DO, HOWEVER, HAVE BOOKS
  • 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:07.080
  • THAT ARE NOT PART OF THE CANON
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:08.240
  • OF THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:09.200
  • BUT ARE INCLUDED
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:10.180
  • IN THE CATHOLIC BIBLE -
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:11.220
  • FOUR BOOKS, IN FACT,
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:13.040
  • KNOWN AS THE BOOKS
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:14.100
  • OF MACCABEE.
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:15.210
  • - SO, THESE ARE HISTORIC BOOKS
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:16.280
  • ABOUT THAT
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:17.180
  • INTERTESTAMENTAL PERIOD,
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:18.260
  • EXPLAINING WHAT WAS HAPPENING
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:19.260
  • WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:20.180
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:20.280
  • THEY TELL THE STORY
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:21.220
  • OF HANUKKAH AND YOU CAN FIND IT
  • 00:03:21.220 --> 00:03:23.170
  • AGAIN IN THE APOCRYPHA.
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:25.060
  • IT'S IN THE APOCRYPHA
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:26.100
  • AND IT'S IN MANY
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:26.250
  • JEWISH WRITINGS AS WELL.
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:27.160
  • - INTERESTING.
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:29.030
  • SO, WHAT WAS
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.060
  • HAPPENING, JONATHAN?
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:30.230
  • WHAT WAS THE FIRST
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:31.210
  • HANUKKAH LIKE,
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:32.260
  • AND HOW DID WE GET THERE
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:34.030
  • AS A PEOPLE?
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:34.260
  • - WELL, THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION,
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:38.030
  • AND LET ME TRY
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:38.200
  • BUT I WANT TO MAKE
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:41.060
  • THIS STATEMENT FIRST.
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:42.100
  • WITHOUT HANUKKAH,
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:44.110
  • THERE'S NO CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.240
  • THAT'S, I THINK,
  • 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:48.010
  • AN IMPORTANT POINT.
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:49.080
  • THERE WOULD BE NO CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:52.210
  • - WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:53.170
  • - WHAT I MEAN BY THAT,
  • 00:03:53.170 --> 00:03:54.260
  • AND NOW GETTING
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:55.110
  • INTO THE HISTORY,
  • 00:03:55.110 --> 00:03:56.080
  • AS IN 167 B.C.,
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:58.170
  • ISRAEL WAS OCCUPIED -
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:02.090
  • SYRIAN FORCES,
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:03.220
  • AND THIS WAS THE WORLD POWER
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:05.260
  • AT THE TIME.
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:07.010
  • ASSYRIA WAS THE WORLD POWER
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.160
  • AT THE TIME,
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:09.040
  • AND THEY INVADED ISRAEL
  • 00:04:09.040 --> 00:04:11.100
  • UNDER THE REIGN
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:11.270
  • OF A KING NAMED
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:14.120
  • ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES.
  • 00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:16.010
  • DON'T TRY TO SAY
  • 00:04:16.010 --> 00:04:17.030
  • THAT TOO MANY TIMES.
  • 00:04:17.030 --> 00:04:18.050
  • ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES -
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:19.250
  • WHO WAS A TYPE OF ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:26.070
  • HE WAS IN FACT AN ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:04:26.070 --> 00:04:28.250
  • AND THE PICTURE
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:30.150
  • OF THE ANTICHRIST THAT WILL COME
  • 00:04:30.150 --> 00:04:33.030
  • DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.240
  • IS ACTUALLY A REPEAT OF WHAT
  • 00:04:36.240 --> 00:04:39.020
  • ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES IV
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:40.180
  • DID DURING THIS PERIOD.
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:43.130
  • - SO, A TYPE OF THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:44.240
  • MEANING ATTEMPTING
  • 00:04:44.240 --> 00:04:45.290
  • TO DESTROY THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.010
  • AND DESECRATING THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.110
  • - YEAH, SO HE DID A FEW THINGS.
  • 00:04:48.110 --> 00:04:49.230
  • ONE, HE ERECTED A STATUE
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:51.220
  • OF ZEUS IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:04:51.220 --> 00:04:54.110
  • TWO, HE DESECRATED
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.210
  • THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:57.110
  • THIS IS THE PLACE
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:58.240
  • THAT THE HIGH PRIEST
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:04:59.220
  • WOULD GO INTO WHERE WE HAD
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:01.220
  • THE ARK OF THE COVENANT,
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:02.160
  • THE MERCY SEAT,
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:03.090
  • AND WOULD MAKE ATONEMENT.
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:05.220
  • THAT WAS THE HOLY OF HOLIES,
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:07.080
  • AND HE SACRIFICED A PIG
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:09.090
  • IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:10.110
  • SO, WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:11.180
  • IT DESECRATED THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:12.290
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:13.170
  • TEMPLE SACRIFICE
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:14.180
  • CEASED AFTER THAT.
  • 00:05:14.180 --> 00:05:16.050
  • - BECAUSE IT WAS UNCLEAN.
  • 00:05:16.050 --> 00:05:17.010
  • - IT WAS UNCLEAN.
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:17.270
  • IT WAS UNUSABLE.
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:19.010
  • NOW, THAT WAS AN INTENTIONAL ACT
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:21.050
  • TO ERADICATE JUDAISM,
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:25.190
  • WHAT WAS BIBLICAL JUDAISM
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.000
  • THEN, HE SENT SOLDIERS
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:30.180
  • THROUGHOUT ISRAEL,
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:33.120
  • WHAT WAS THEN ISRAEL,
  • 00:05:33.120 --> 00:05:35.010
  • TO FORCE PEOPLE TO PLEDGE
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:39.180
  • TO BOW DOWN
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:42.100
  • AND WORSHIP THEIR GODS,
  • 00:05:42.100 --> 00:05:43.230
  • IN DIRECT DEFIANCE,
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:45.130
  • OF COURSE.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:46.130
  • JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:47.100
  • - HE SAID DON'T WORSHIP
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.020
  • THE GOD OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:49.080
  • WORSHIP THE GOD
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.050
  • OF THE ASSYRIANS?
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:50.230
  • - BY DECREE.
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:51.160
  • AND SO, THIS OF COURSE
  • 00:05:51.160 --> 00:05:53.290
  • WAS A VIOLATION
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:55.200
  • OF THE FIRST COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:57.290
  • OF COURSE, TO HONOR GOD
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:05:59.160
  • AND NOT TO BOW DOWN
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:00.110
  • TO OTHER IDOLS.
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:01.200
  • SO, OF COURSE,
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:02.190
  • MANY DEVOUT JEWS
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:03.290
  • COULD NOT DO THAT
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:04.280
  • AND THEY WERE PUT TO DEATH.
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:05.250
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:06.140
  • - THE NEXT PART OF THE STORY
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:07.290
  • IS THEY'RE IN A VILLAGE
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:10.130
  • CALLED MODI'IN,
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.230
  • WHICH IS ACTUALLY RIGHT NEXT
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:13.080
  • TO THE MODERN DAY
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:14.080
  • - RIGHT, HALFWAY BETWEEN
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:16.010
  • TEL AVIV AND JERUSALEM.
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.060
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:17.200
  • SO WHEN YOU FLY
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:18.180
  • INTO ISRAEL TODAY,
  • 00:06:18.180 --> 00:06:19.120
  • YOU'RE ACTUALLY LANDING
  • 00:06:19.120 --> 00:06:21.270
  • RIGHT ON THE SPOT
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:22.260
  • WHERE THIS WHOLE STORY
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:23.170
  • TAKES PLACE.
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:24.130
  • - SURE.
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:24.290
  • OKAY, SO WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:25.200
  • NEXT, JONATHAN?
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:26.090
  • - YEAH, SO THE ARMIES
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:29.240
  • INTO MODI'IN.
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:33.080
  • THEY GATHER THE PEOPLE TOGETHER,
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:37.060
  • COMMAND THEM TO BOW DOWN
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:39.010
  • TO OTHER GODS,
  • 00:06:39.010 --> 00:06:39.250
  • AND ONE OF THE FAMILIES,
  • 00:06:39.250 --> 00:06:41.130
  • UNDER A PRIEST NAMED MATTATHIAS,
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.130
  • REFUSED TO DO IT
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:46.010
  • AND TOOK UP ARMS,
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:47.120
  • AND THAT WAS THE BEGINNING
  • 00:06:47.120 --> 00:06:48.250
  • OF A REVOLT,
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:50.110
  • THE MACCABEAN REVOLT.
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:51.190
  • IT ALL STARTS THERE.
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:52.150
  • - SO, THE JEWS RISE UP,
  • 00:06:52.150 --> 00:06:53.270
  • JONATHAN, AND TAKE A STAND
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:54.280
  • AGAINST THE OPPRESSION.
  • 00:06:54.280 --> 00:06:56.000
  • - YEAH, AND THIS OF COURSE
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:57.060
  • SPREADS THROUGHOUT THE LAND,
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:02.280
  • AND WE HAVE
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.060
  • WHAT MANY HISTORIANS,
  • 00:07:04.060 --> 00:07:06.270
  • MILITARY HISTORIANS,
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:07.160
  • SAY IS THE BEGINNING
  • 00:07:07.160 --> 00:07:08.160
  • OF GUERILLA WARFARE.
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:11.030
  • BECAUSE, EZRA,
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:11.200
  • THEY ARE VASTLY OUTNUMBERED.
  • 00:07:11.200 --> 00:07:14.010
  • - THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:15.020
  • ARE OUTNUMBERED.
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:15.160
  • - THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:07:15.160 --> 00:07:16.090
  • VASTLY OUTNUMBERED,
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:16.260
  • AND THIS IS THE HISTORY,
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:18.110
  • BY THE WAY, OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.140
  • ONE KINGDOM
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:21.200
  • AFTER ANOTHER
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:23.270
  • COMING IN AND INVADING THE LAND
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:25.240
  • AND SUBJUGATING THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:26.250
  • - SURE.
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:27.140
  • - SO, THIS IS
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:27.290
  • A RALLYING CRY.
  • 00:07:27.290 --> 00:07:29.080
  • THE FAMILY,
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:30.270
  • THE MACCABEAN FAMILY,
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.230
  • WHICH BECOMES
  • 00:07:32.230 --> 00:07:33.110
  • THE PRIESTLY FAMILY
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:34.130
  • LATER ON BECAUSE
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:35.250
  • THEY'RE HEROES NOW,
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:37.050
  • AND ONE OF THE SONS, JUDAH,
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:39.210
  • ACTUALLY JUDAH THE HAMMER,
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:42.140
  • BECOMES THE MILITARY LEADER
  • 00:07:42.140 --> 00:07:44.210
  • FOR THIS REVOLT.
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:46.240
  • VASTLY OUTNUMBERED,
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:50.020
  • AND IT'S THE SAME STORY
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:51.040
  • WE SEE OVER AND OVER AGAIN
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.000
  • WITH THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:53.180
  • 1948, WHEN ISRAEL
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:55.090
  • BECOMES A STATE,
  • 00:07:55.090 --> 00:07:56.180
  • 60 TO 1, BUT THEY PREVAIL.
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:02.030
  • IN 1967, 1973, ALL MIRACLES.
  • 00:08:03.130 --> 00:08:06.130
  • SO, THIS IS NO EXCEPTION.
  • 00:08:06.130 --> 00:08:07.160
  • THIS IS A FOUR YEAR BATTLE.
  • 00:08:07.270 --> 00:08:10.270
  • AND IN THE END,
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:13.080
  • VASTLY OUTNUMBERED,
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:14.220
  • THE MACCABEES,
  • 00:08:14.220 --> 00:08:15.240
  • IN THIS RAG-TAG MILITARY GROUP,
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:19.120
  • DEFEATS THE WORLD POWER,
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:22.060
  • THE ASSYRIANS,
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:23.070
  • AND THEY DRIVE THEM OUT,
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:25.010
  • AND THEY REDEDICATE THE TEMPLE
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.260
  • IN 163 B.C. AND AGAIN,
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:28.270
  • THAT'S WHY I SAY
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.220
  • WITHOUT HANUKKAH,
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:32.060
  • WITHOUT THIS MIRACLE,
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:34.120
  • WITHOUT THAT INTERVENTION,
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:36.110
  • THERE WOULD BE NO SECOND TEMPLE,
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:38.110
  • THERE WOULD BE NO PLACE
  • 00:08:38.110 --> 00:08:41.050
  • FOR JESUS TO COME TO.
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:42.080
  • - THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:08:42.080 --> 00:08:43.100
  • WOULD HAVE ASSIMILATED
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.070
  • OR BEEN DESTROYED, FRANKLY.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:45.090
  • - RIGHT, SO THE MESSIANIC LINE
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.110
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN CUT OFF.
  • 00:08:47.110 --> 00:08:48.120
  • - WOW.
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:48.270
  • OF GOD THAT WE CELEBRATE
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:52.050
  • AT HANUKKAH, AND YES,
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:53.130
  • IT'S BECOME SORT
  • 00:08:53.130 --> 00:08:54.130
  • OF A REPLACEMENT FOR CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:08:57.000
  • WE GET GIFTS,
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:57.150
  • AND I USED TO LOVE HANUKKAH
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:59.160
  • GOT GIFTS ONE DAY AT CHRISTMAS -
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:03.050
  • WE GOT EIGHT DAYS.
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.230
  • - YOU GOT EIGHT DAYS.
  • 00:09:04.230 --> 00:09:05.190
  • - OF PRESENTS,
  • 00:09:05.190 --> 00:09:07.000
  • BUT IT'S FAR MORE
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:08.100
  • SIGNIFICANT THAN THAT.
  • 00:09:08.100 --> 00:09:09.150
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:10.290
  • NOW, EIGHT NIGHTS
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:11.200
  • OF PRESENTS, JONATHAN,
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:12.190
  • THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME,
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:13.060
  • BUT WHY WAS IT
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.030
  • AN EIGHT DAY CELEBRATION?
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:15.050
  • WHY IS IT?
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.010
  • - EZRA, BECAUSE OF WHAT
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:16.290
  • HAPPENED FOLLOWING
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:17.290
  • THE DEFEAT OF THE ASSYRIANS.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:19.190
  • THEY HAD TO REDEDICATE
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:20.140
  • THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.080
  • REMEMBER, ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:24.100
  • DESECRATED THE TEMPLE
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:25.220
  • WITH THE SACRIFICE OF A PIG.
  • 00:09:25.220 --> 00:09:27.040
  • NOW THEY HAD TO REDEDICATE
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:28.130
  • THE TEMPLE SO THAT
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:29.290
  • THEY COULD AGAIN
  • 00:09:29.290 --> 00:09:30.250
  • BEGIN SACRIFICES.
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:32.190
  • AND THE MIRACLE IS THAT THE OIL
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:35.180
  • THAT THEY FOUND
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.090
  • FOR THE LAMPSTAND
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:37.240
  • LASTED FOR EIGHT DAYS,
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:39.120
  • AND IT WAS ONLY ENOUGH
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.050
  • OIL FOR ONE.
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:40.270
  • THAT'S THE MIRACLE
  • 00:09:40.270 --> 00:09:41.120
  • OF HANUKKAH.
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:42.020
  • WE HAVE A CHANUKKIYAH HERE,
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:44.090
  • BUT IT HAS NINE.
  • 00:09:44.090 --> 00:09:46.180
  • IT'S NINE-BRANCHED -
  • 00:09:46.180 --> 00:09:47.200
  • EIGHT DAYS
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:48.150
  • AND THEN THE OTHER ONE
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:49.150
  • DIRECTLY CONNECTS TO JESUS
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:52.110
  • AS THE MESSIAH,
  • 00:09:52.110 --> 00:09:53.000
  • AND THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:53.220
  • TO TALK ABOUT WHEN WE COME BACK.
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:54.270
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:55.190
  • HOW YESHUA, HOW JESUS FULFILLS
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:58.280
  • THE FEAST OF DEDICATION,
  • 00:09:58.280 --> 00:10:00.080
  • THE FEAST OF LIGHTS - HANUKKAH.
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:02.230
  • SO, DON'T GO ANYWHERE.
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:03.250
  • WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK,
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.170
  • BUT WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:07.210
  • WITH MORE, AND AGAIN,
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:09.070
  • YOU'LL LEARN THAT HANUKKAH
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:10.110
  • IS NOT JUST JEWISH!
  • 00:10:10.110 --> 00:10:12.000
  • IT'S FOR YOU AS A BELIEVER
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:14.190
  • IN JESUS.
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:15.140
  • - Announcer: HANUKKAH,
  • 00:10:18.150 --> 00:10:19.100
  • OR THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS,
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:21.180
  • IS A CELEBRATION
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:22.070
  • OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS
  • 00:10:22.070 --> 00:10:23.250
  • AND A UNIQUE REPRESENTATION
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:25.000
  • OF THE MESSIAH
  • 00:10:25.000 --> 00:10:25.290
  • AS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

  • THIS IS FOR
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:17.090
  • EVERY BELIEVER.
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:17.260
  • - IT HAS SIGNIFICANCE
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:18.160
  • FOR ALL BELIEVERS,
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:19.070
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:12:20.210 --> 00:12:21.070
  • - NOW, JONATHAN,
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:21.190
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THE HISTORY.
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:22.230
  • WE TALKED ABOUT JUDAS MACCABEUS
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:24.090
  • AND RECONQUERING
  • 00:12:24.090 --> 00:12:26.240
  • THE LAND OF ISRAEL
  • 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:27.190
  • WHAT GOD HAD GIVEN
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:29.180
  • TO OUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:30.070
  • BUT I'M STILL NOT CLEAR.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.160
  • WHY THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS,
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.180
  • AND WHY THE FESTIVAL
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:33.190
  • OF DEDICATION?
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:34.180
  • BRING THAT IN FOR US.
  • 00:12:34.180 --> 00:12:35.080
  • - SO FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:12:35.080 --> 00:12:35.270
  • TO SAY IT AGAIN,
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:36.200
  • BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN,
  • 00:12:38.090 --> 00:12:39.260
  • AND UNLESS GOD INTERVENED,
  • 00:12:40.240 --> 00:12:43.240
  • WE WOULD HAVE NO CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.170
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:50.030
  • THE LAND OF ISRAEL
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:51.280
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:52.240
  • THE TEMPLE THAT JESUS
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:53.250
  • CAME TO WORSHIP IN
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:12:55.130
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:56.080
  • IT HAD ALREADY
  • 00:12:56.080 --> 00:12:57.100
  • BEEN DESECRATED.
  • 00:12:57.100 --> 00:12:58.080
  • - SURE.
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:12:58.210
  • - AND THROUGH THIS MIRACLE,
  • 00:12:58.210 --> 00:13:00.240
  • WHICH TOOK A FOUR YEAR PERIOD,
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:03.020
  • ISRAEL PREVAILED
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:05.020
  • AND ULTIMATELY THE MESSIAH
  • 00:13:05.020 --> 00:13:07.040
  • WAS ABLE TO COME.
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:08.210
  • NOW, WHAT'S SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.290
  • FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.170
  • IS WHAT THE FEAST SYMBOLIZES,
  • 00:13:11.170 --> 00:13:14.160
  • WHAT IT CELEBRATES.
  • 00:13:14.160 --> 00:13:15.250
  • IT CELEBRATES THE REDEDICATION
  • 00:13:15.250 --> 00:13:17.060
  • OF THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:13:17.060 --> 00:13:18.240
  • WHICH WAS DESECRATED
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:20.030
  • WITH THE SACRIFICE OF A PIG.
  • 00:13:20.030 --> 00:13:22.040
  • WHEN THEY WENT
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:22.260
  • TO REDEDICATE THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:13:22.260 --> 00:13:24.190
  • THEY FOUND ONLY ENOUGH OIL
  • 00:13:24.190 --> 00:13:26.160
  • TO LIGHT THE LAMPSTAND
  • 00:13:26.160 --> 00:13:27.150
  • FOR ONE DAY,
  • 00:13:27.150 --> 00:13:28.160
  • WHILE THEY COULD RENDER
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:31.250
  • NEW OIL TO REDEDICATE
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:35.120
  • THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:13:35.120 --> 00:13:36.130
  • - AND THAT'S SO SIGNIFICANT,
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:37.200
  • BECAUSE WE'RE COMMANDED
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:38.280
  • IN TORAH -
  • 00:13:38.280 --> 00:13:39.200
  • MOSES IS COMMANDED
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:40.180
  • TO DEDICATE THE TEMPLE
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:41.220
  • TO WORSHIP THE LORD.
  • 00:13:41.220 --> 00:13:43.010
  • YOU HAVE TO BURN
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:44.000
  • IT'S A COMMANDMENT.
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:46.210
  • - NOW, HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:13:46.210 --> 00:13:47.090
  • SO CRITICAL
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:49.170
  • FOR CHRISTIANS TO KNOW.
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:50.210
  • THE FEAST OF REDEDICATION,
  • 00:13:50.210 --> 00:13:52.290
  • OR HANUKKAH,
  • 00:13:52.290 --> 00:13:53.260
  • DOESN'T APPEAR
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:54.170
  • IN THE JEWISH SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:57.240
  • IT DOESN'T APPEAR
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:13:58.130
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:13:59.060
  • INTERESTINGLY, IT DOES APPEAR
  • 00:13:59.060 --> 00:14:01.010
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.050
  • JESUS OBSERVED HANUKKAH.
  • 00:14:04.090 --> 00:14:07.090
  • WE'RE TOLD VERY CLEARLY
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:08.050
  • IN JOHN 10,
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:10.100
  • AND I WANT YOU
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:10.260
  • TO LOOK THERE WITH ME.
  • 00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:12.120
  • JOHN 10, BEGINNING IN VERSE 22,
  • 00:14:12.120 --> 00:14:14.290
  • IT SAYS, THEN CAME HANUKKAH
  • 00:14:14.290 --> 00:14:17.280
  • IN THE TLV.
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:18.280
  • OTHER TRANSLATIONS SAY
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:19.220
  • THE FEAST OF DEDICATION.
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:21.110
  • AND IT WAS WINTER.
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:22.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:23.110
  • BECAUSE THIS
  • 00:14:23.110 --> 00:14:23.270
  • IS A WINTER OBSERVANCE.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:25.270
  • AND IT WAS IN JERUSALEM,
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:27.290
  • AND JESUS WAS WALKING
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.100
  • IN THE TEMPLE AROUND
  • 00:14:29.100 --> 00:14:30.190
  • SOLOMON'S COLONNADE.
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:32.190
  • IT'S A SPECIFIC...
  • 00:14:32.190 --> 00:14:33.170
  • NOTE THAT,
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:34.060
  • SOLOMON'S COLONNADE.
  • 00:14:34.060 --> 00:14:35.280
  • AND THEY ASKED HIM PLAINLY.
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:38.050
  • THEY CONFRONTED HIM THERE,
  • 00:14:38.050 --> 00:14:39.060
  • SAYING, DON'T HOLD US
  • 00:14:39.060 --> 00:14:40.240
  • ARE YOU THE MESSIAH?
  • 00:14:41.240 --> 00:14:44.030
  • ABOUT SOLOMON'S COLONNADE?
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:46.160
  • ACCORDING TO RABBINIC
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:47.200
  • LITERATURE, IT SAYS
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:49.030
  • THAT WHEN THEY REDEDICATED
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:50.110
  • THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:14:50.110 --> 00:14:51.010
  • THEY HAD THE DESECRATED STONES
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:52.190
  • FROM THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:14:52.190 --> 00:14:54.030
  • THEY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:14:54.180
  • WHAT TO DO WITH THEM.
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:55.140
  • SO, WHERE DID THEY PILE THEM?
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:56.250
  • THEY PILED THEM NEXT
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:58.060
  • TO SOLOMON'S COLONNADE.
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:15:00.040
  • - WOW!
  • 00:15:00.040 --> 00:15:00.170
  • - WHY DID THEY WAIT?
  • 00:15:00.170 --> 00:15:02.110
  • WHY DID THEY HOLD
  • 00:15:02.110 --> 00:15:03.090
  • THE STONES THERE?
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:04.010
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:04.240
  • WHETHER TO KEEP THEM
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:05.220
  • OR TO DISCARD THEM,
  • 00:15:05.220 --> 00:15:06.200
  • AND THE CONCLUSION WAS
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:08.130
  • THE MESSIAH
  • 00:15:08.130 --> 00:15:08.270
  • WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:15:08.270 --> 00:15:09.290
  • - WOW.
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:10.150
  • - SO, THE CONTEXT
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:11.070
  • IS THEY'RE SAYING WE NEED
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:12.060
  • TO KNOW IF YOU'RE THE MESSIAH
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:13.200
  • SO YOU CAN TELL US WHAT TO DO
  • 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:14.270
  • WITH THESE STONES
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:16.040
  • FOR HANUKKAH.
  • 00:15:16.040 --> 00:15:16.280
  • YEAH, SO THAT'S
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:18.020
  • ONE APPLICATION.
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:18.160
  • JESUS CELEBRATED,
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:19.100
  • JESUS OBSERVED HANUKKAH.
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:21.160
  • THE OTHER THING
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:22.090
  • IS IT'S THE FEAST
  • 00:15:22.090 --> 00:15:23.020
  • OF DEDICATION
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:23.280
  • OR REDEDICATION.
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:25.090
  • THE BIBLE TALKS REPEATEDLY
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.230
  • ABOUT DEDICATION OR REDEDICATION
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:29.030
  • OF OUR LIFE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:30.260
  • HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:31.210
  • FOR ALL OF YOU WATCHING.
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:33.040
  • WE'RE ALL GONNA SIN,
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:34.190
  • IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS,
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:37.070
  • HE'S FAITHFUL
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.170
  • AND JUST TO FORGIVE US
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:41.100
  • AND TO CLEANSE US
  • 00:15:41.100 --> 00:15:41.280
  • FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:43.140
  • - TO REDEDICATE US,
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:44.080
  • IN A WAY.
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:44.280
  • IS EXTREMELY RELEVANT
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:47.200
  • FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN WATCHING.
  • 00:15:48.000 --> 00:15:51.000
  • THIS IS A SEASON
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:52.260
  • OF REDEDICATION.
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:54.090
  • JUST AS THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:55.090
  • REDEDICATED THE TEMPLE
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:57.030
  • FOR SACRIFICES,
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:15:58.180
  • FOR SERVICE,
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:00.090
  • THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:16:00.090 --> 00:16:01.160
  • FOR EIGHT DAYS TO REDEDICATE
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:03.270
  • OUR LIFE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:05.130
  • AND THE ANSWER IS FOUND
  • 00:16:07.140 --> 00:16:08.130
  • IN THIS MENORAH.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:10.070
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:16:10.070 --> 00:16:10.270
  • - A UNIQUE MENORAH,
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:12.020
  • IT'S CALLED THE CHANUKKIYAH.
  • 00:16:12.020 --> 00:16:13.060
  • TAKE A LOOK CLOSELY.
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:14.090
  • THE MENORAH IN THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:15.180
  • THE LAMPSTAND,
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:16.240
  • HAS SEVEN BRANCHES.
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:18.130
  • - BUT, THIS ONE
  • 00:16:18.130 --> 00:16:19.110
  • HAS NINE, JONATHAN.
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:19.270
  • - THIS HAS NINE.
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:20.250
  • FIRST OF ALL, EIGHT OF THEM
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.200
  • ARE REPRESENTING
  • 00:16:23.200 --> 00:16:24.290
  • THE EIGHT NIGHTS
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:25.220
  • THAT WE OBSERVE HANUKKAH,
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:26.090
  • AND WE EITHER PUT OIL
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:27.080
  • OR A CANDLE IN THE CHANUKKIYAH,
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:30.030
  • AND WE LIGHT
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:30.240
  • A NEW ONE EVERY NIGHT.
  • 00:16:30.240 --> 00:16:32.020
  • SO, FOR EIGHT NIGHTS
  • 00:16:32.020 --> 00:16:32.250
  • WE'RE LIGHTING THE CANDLES.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:34.000
  • WHY IS THERE A NINTH?
  • 00:16:34.000 --> 00:16:35.290
  • WELL, THIS ONE IS CALLED
  • 00:16:35.290 --> 00:16:37.110
  • THE SHAMASH.
  • 00:16:37.110 --> 00:16:39.010
  • THE SHAMASH -
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:39.210
  • SAY THAT WITH ME
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:40.100
  • AT HOME, SHAMASH.
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:41.110
  • SHAMASH MEANS SERVANT.
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:44.020
  • - WOW.
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:44.200
  • - WATCH THE SYMBOLISM.
  • 00:16:44.200 --> 00:16:46.040
  • THIS IS REALLY EXCITING
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:46.250
  • WHEN YOU GET IT!
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:48.100
  • THE SHAMASH IS A CANDLE,
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:51.250
  • A SERVANT CANDLE,
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:53.210
  • THAT WE USE TO LIGHT
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.000
  • THE OTHER EIGHT.
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.240
  • SO, THE ONE WE LIGHT
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:57.210
  • AT HOME IS THE SHAMASH CANDLE,
  • 00:16:57.210 --> 00:17:00.140
  • AND THEN THE SHAMASH
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:01.240
  • LIGHTS THE CANDLES
  • 00:17:01.240 --> 00:17:04.050
  • EACH NIGHT OF HANUKKAH.
  • 00:17:04.050 --> 00:17:05.250
  • - THE SHAMASH BRINGS LIGHT
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:06.180
  • TO THE OTHER LIGHTS.
  • 00:17:06.180 --> 00:17:07.110
  • - YOU GET IT.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:08.130
  • YOU'RE GETTING IT.
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:09.060
  • JESUS SAID, I AM THE LIGHT
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:11.250
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:14.050
  • BUT, THE SCRIPTURE ALSO SAYS
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:15.240
  • THAT WE'RE THE LIGHT
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:16.180
  • OF THE WORLD
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:17.120
  • AND WE CAN'T HIDE THAT LIGHT.
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:19.230
  • SO, THE IDEA IS THAT
  • 00:17:19.230 --> 00:17:20.210
  • WE'RE CELEBRATING HANUKKAH,
  • 00:17:20.210 --> 00:17:22.080
  • LIGHTING THE CHANUKKIYAH,
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:25.010
  • THE MENORAH, EVERY NIGHT
  • 00:17:25.010 --> 00:17:26.060
  • BY LIGHTING THE SHAMASH,
  • 00:17:26.060 --> 00:17:27.230
  • AND THEN, GATHERED
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:28.190
  • WITH OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:28.190 --> 00:17:29.220
  • GATHERED TOGETHER
  • 00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:30.120
  • WITH OUR GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:17:30.120 --> 00:17:32.080
  • AS A FAMILY WE'RE LIGHTING,
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:34.140
  • AND MY KIDS ARE DOING THIS
  • 00:17:34.140 --> 00:17:35.180
  • AT HOME WITH US.
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:36.190
  • WE ARE USING THE SHAMASH
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:38.150
  • TO LIGHT THE OTHER CANDLES
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:39.240
  • AND WE ARE REMINDING OURSELVES,
  • 00:17:39.240 --> 00:17:42.060
  • WE ARE DECLARING
  • 00:17:42.060 --> 00:17:43.070
  • TO OURSELVES, THAT YESHUA,
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:45.030
  • THAT LAID DOWN HIS LIFE FOR US,
  • 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:50.000
  • FOR YOU AND FOR ME,
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:51.090
  • IS LIGHTING US,
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:52.250
  • IS LIGHTING THE OTHER CANDLES,
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:54.150
  • THAT WE ARE HIS LIGHT
  • 00:17:56.190 --> 00:17:59.190
  • TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:59.190 --> 00:18:00.290
  • AND WE DEDICATE OURSELVES,
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.150
  • WE REDEDICATE OURSELVES
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:04.100
  • OVER THESE EIGHT NIGHTS.
  • 00:18:04.100 --> 00:18:06.120
  • IT'S FANTASTIC FOR THE CHILDREN,
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:08.010
  • IT'S FANTASTIC
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:09.120
  • AND IT APPLIES TO EVERY SINGLE
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:12.000
  • ONE OF YOU WATCHING.
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:13.030
  • - YEAH, NOT JUST
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:13.220
  • FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, JONATHAN,
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:15.000
  • BUT FOR ALL OF US
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:15.190
  • AROUND THE WORLD.

  • - YEAH, THIS IS SUCH
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:19.040
  • AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE.
  • 00:18:19.040 --> 00:18:19.210
  • EVERY TIME YOU SEE
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:20.210
  • A CHANUKKIYAH,
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:21.100
  • REMEMBER THE LIGHT
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:22.090
  • OF THE WORLD THAT GIVES LIGHT
  • 00:18:22.090 --> 00:18:23.120
  • TO EVERY OTHER LIGHT,
  • 00:18:23.120 --> 00:18:24.140
  • BUT YOU AT HOME AS WELL.
  • 00:18:26.080 --> 00:18:27.090
  • - THIS YEAR, I WANT YOU

  • I WANT YOU TO GET
  • 00:18:29.210 --> 00:18:30.090

  • I WANT YOU
  • 00:18:31.000 --> 00:18:31.130

  • ABOUT THE LESSON HERE,
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:34.170
  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:35.100
  • WE HAVEN'T UNPACKED.
  • 00:18:35.100 --> 00:18:36.210
  • THERE'S A MIRACLE IN HANUKKAH,
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:38.250
  • THAT THIS ONE NIGHT'S WORTH
  • 00:18:38.250 --> 00:18:40.040
  • OF THIS OIL OF DEDICATION
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:41.150
  • LASTED EIGHT NIGHTS.
  • 00:18:41.150 --> 00:18:42.160
  • TALK ABOUT THE OIL.
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:43.230
  • - WELL, THERE'S MIRACLES.
  • 00:18:43.230 --> 00:18:44.150
  • IT'S A CELEBRATION OF MIRACLES.
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:47.050
  • A LITTLE TINY ARMY
  • 00:18:47.050 --> 00:18:48.070
  • DEFEATS THIS WORLD POWER.
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:52.130
  • GOD'S IN THAT.
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:54.020
  • GOD SUPPLIES.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:55.110
  • AND IT'S ALSO SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:18:55.110 --> 00:18:57.180
  • THAT THE MIRACLE IS WITH OIL.
  • 00:18:57.180 --> 00:19:00.030
  • IT'S OIL AND IT'S NOT
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.000
  • JUST ANY OIL.
  • 00:19:01.000 --> 00:19:01.280
  • IT'S NOT JUST OLIVE OIL.
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.050
  • IT'S SPECIALLY PREPARED OIL
  • 00:19:03.050 --> 00:19:04.290

  • THERE'S ALL KINDS OF SPICES.
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:10.070
  • IT TAKES EIGHT DAYS
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.110
  • TO PREPARE AND THAT OIL, EZRA,
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:13.180
  • EXPANDS TO LAST EIGHT DAYS
  • 00:19:14.120 --> 00:19:17.120
  • SO THAT NEW OIL CAN GO THROUGH
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:18.250
  • THIS PREPARATION PROCESS.
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:20.200
  • OIL IS SYMBOLIC
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:21.220

  • THIS IS A MIRACLE.
  • 00:19:31.010 --> 00:19:32.170
  • WHEN WE LOOK BACK AT HANUKKAH,
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:34.180
  • WE SAY IN HEBREW,
  • 00:19:34.180 --> 00:19:36.080
  • NES GADOL HAYA SHAM.
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:39.080
  • - A GREAT MIRACLE
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:40.050
  • HAPPENED THERE.
  • 00:19:40.050 --> 00:19:41.080
  • - EXACTLY -
  • 00:19:41.080 --> 00:19:41.250
  • A GREAT MIRACLE HAPPENED THERE,

  • A GREAT MIRACLE
  • 00:19:46.150 --> 00:19:47.010
  • HAPPENED HERE.
  • 00:19:47.010 --> 00:19:47.290
  • WHAT IS THE MIRACLE?

  • GOD SUPPLYING.
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:52.020
  • MY SCRIPTURE TELLS ME

  • THAT MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY
  • 00:19:54.260 --> 00:19:57.170
  • TO HIS RICHES AND GLORY
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:20:00.250
  • IN THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:20:00.250 --> 00:20:02.060
  • YOU MAY HAVE A NEED TODAY.
  • 00:20:02.060 --> 00:20:04.010
  • IT MAY BE A FINANCIAL NEED.
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:06.050
  • IT MAY BE A FAMILY NEED.
  • 00:20:06.050 --> 00:20:07.090
  • IT MAY BE A NEED FOR HEALING.
  • 00:20:07.090 --> 00:20:08.290
  • THERE'S OIL.
  • 00:20:08.290 --> 00:20:10.190

  • BUT SIX DAYS FOR CREATION
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:47.160
  • AND THEN THE SEVENTH.
  • 00:23:47.160 --> 00:23:48.200
