["ON DEMAND" episode. Pre-recorded. Do not call in tonight!]  "Hanukkah ... in the Gospels?" So what's your verdict? Is it just a happy accident that Christmas is always on December 25th, and Hanukkah is always on the 25th day of the Jewish month Kislev? Or why is it that the only biblical mention of Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday, is in the Christian Bible: Gospel of John 10:22? Or why is it that that most popular Christmas carol "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!" was written by a Jewish believer in Jesus, Felix Mendelssohn, grandson of the famous Rabbi Moses Mendelssohn. Why did Felix become Christian? Cultural pressure? Economic advantage? Or was it something else? Tonight, let's talk about it. Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on "Jewish Roots" each Thursday 9:30 pm, EST, live internet radio.
