How Christians Rediscover their Hebraic Legacy in Hanukkah Menorah

The Hanukkah menorah has nine branches instead of seven branches to preserve the original divine design. The eight branches of the symbolical tree of life represent the eight days the menorah kept lighting, despite having oil sufficient to last a day.

The boat’s discovery has illuminated us, and now we’re certain that a maximum of five people steered the boat. The Gospel accounts indicate that the boat accommodates more than five people, but Josephus Flavius confirms this by indicating that the boat can accommodate around 15 people.


Could the Judean Woman Suffering From Chronic Bleeding Have Touched the “hem” of Jesus’s Garment to get Healed?

While Jesus’s actions may seem to have violated the Mosaic Law (or Jewish traditions), if the woman who suffered from chronic bleeding touched the “hem” or tassel of His garment, then the ancient laws and the covenant held great significance in her healing. The books of Numbers and Deuteronomy give a biblical context of the tassel. This part holds great significance, and it’s possible that, had the woman touched a different part, she couldn’t have healed.


Understanding Jesus’s Miracles and Faith From a Hebrew Perspective

There are three chief reasons why the actions of the Judean woman to touch Jesus’s garment were controversial – and revolutionary. For one, it’s against the custom of Judea for a man to touch and talk to a woman who isn’t clearly his mother, daughter or wife. Second, the Judean society is male-dominated, and so the treatment of men and women isn’t equal. Third, lepers are social outcasts in the society.
