Lesson PGM1611
Recorded 5767 / 2006
Never losing the emphasis on the Messianic character of the Torah, each year’s study reveals deeper and more significant insights into His person, His work and His words. Departing from a surface examination, more attention this year is paid to the Messiah’s adherence to and fulfillment of the Torah.

However, with a greater revelation of the character of G-d, comes the added responsibility of adapting our own lives in order to live His way. “Be holy, because I am holy” is a refrain often repeated throughout the pages of the Torah and our challenge is to constantly measure ourselves by comparing our conduct with His character, His nature and His ways.

John 10:22-23
And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of Chanukah (dedication), and it was winter. And Y’shua walked in the temple in Solomon’s portico.

What is Chanukah?

The Hebrew word, "Chanukah" ("Dedication"), also known as the Festival of Lights, is observed for eight days and commemorates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt in 165-164 BCE. Chanukah is observed starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

The festival is observed by lighting candles in a unique candelabrum, a nine-branched Menorah, adding one additional light on each night of the holiday, until all are lit by the last night. Some families also give gifts to each other each night.
