Understanding Hanukkah: A Primer for Christians


Hanukkah is a 2,100 year old celebration of the restoration of Temple worship under the Maccabean kings of Israel. Our Jewish friends celebrate the observance of Hanukkah eight days each year, during our Christmas season. Most Christians have no idea what Hanukkah is all about.

This episode of Ask the Theologian is an explanation of the history of Hanukkah. If you like history, you’ll love this episode.
