Hanukkah is the Hebrew word for dedication. It is Israel’s annual winter celebration when all who are identified with Israel re-dedicate their lives to God as King and His Holy Law as a way of life. By the first century Hanukkah became known as the Festival of Light. Light could be taken literally or as a figure of speech referring to spiritual revelation and spiritual illumination happening during Hanukkah. It is noteworthy that during the Festival of Light, Jesus reveals Himself as the Messiah and that He is one with the Father. That Jesus took the time to travel to Jerusalem during Hanukkah and reveal Himself as the Divine Messiah is more than enough reason for us to re-dedicate our lives to God and His Holy Law during this season. For in Messiah, we too have become one with God!
