What is Hanukkah? Should Christians celebrate it? Did Jesus celebrate it? How do we celebrate it? How can we make each night of Hanukkah more meaningful? What really happened with the Maccabees and their war against assimilation?

These are all questions covered in our book, Eight Lights: A Hanukkah Devotional for Followers of Yeshua. This book merges the traditions of Hanukkah with a meaningful connection to our Messiah each of the eight nights. Yeshua is the Light of the World. He calls his disciples to take up that same function as well in that we should be reflecting his light. But how do we shine his light? Eight Lights focuses on answering this question in practical ways.

Besides covering the basics of Hanukkah, its celebration, and Yeshua's connection with it, Eight Lights includes a devotional each night which will connect you and your family intimately with the life and teachings of our Master. Each night is focused on a single middah (character trait) exemplified in the life of Yeshua. Keeping our focus on discipleship, each night's devotion also contains discussion questions which will help facilitate dialog on ways to comprehend and imitate these traits seen within our Master. The book concludes with the entire text of the first book of Maccabees so that individuals and families can read the actual text of the battle against assimilation and the victory of God over His enemies.

This book is divided into four chapters:

  • Discover (an introduction to Hanukkah)
  • Celebrate (the basics of how to celebrate Hanukkah)
  • Reflect (devotions for each night of Hanukkah)
  • Remember (the complete book of 1 Maccabees)
