Controversy continues to surround the celebration of the birth of Jesus. This book traces the roots of this festival to the Jewish Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah). The date of December 25 was borrowed from the Jews, not the pagans. Not only does he show the Mosaic origins of this family celebration, and demonstrate from internal and external evidence that Jesus really was born on that date, but he also demonstrates how the celebration of this festival on December 25 precedes the pagan celebration of that date by at least one hundred years. This book outlines the theological basis for celebrating the birth of Jesus on December 25 and describes how this joyful celebration can be done Jewish style.
