December 10, 2022 | Let’s Talk About Hanukkah, Part 2 (REBROADCAST)

This program is a rebroadcast from December 21, 2019.

Celebrating Hanukkah

Hanukkah is almost here! We’re continuing our discussion this week with Steve Herzig, vice president of North American Ministries here at The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry. Steve grew up in an Orthodox Jewish home and brings a personal perspective to the Jewish holidays. This week he shares his memories of celebrating Hanukkah growing up, how Jewish people celebrate today, and how the servant candle on the menorah shows us an excellent picture of Jesus the Messiah.

Steve and Chris also discuss if believers in Jesus should celebrate Hanukkah. Spoiler alert: Jesus celebrated it! And if you have Jewish neighbors, coworkers, or friends, Steve gives some insight on how you can show support and love them this holiday season. We hope you enjoy Hanukkah in a new way this year!

The Feasts of Israel: Seasons of the Messiah


Many of the Bible’s most incredible prophecies about Christ are intricately hidden within the Jewish holidays and feasts of the Old Testament. Author Bruce Scott breaks down the seemingly mysterious holidays and feasts revealing the rich symbolism that points to our Messiah.

It was disheartening for Zvi to have to change jobs so often. Many times his coworkers did not care about what he had to say and ignored his attempts to share his faith in Christ. But despite his difficulties, he kept the right attitude: his jobs allowed him to spread the gospel to more people. In one instance, his coworkers asked him his thoughts about Christmas. At first they were upset, but something was different this time. Hear how God opened their ears to listen to what Zvi had to share about the birth of Christ.
