MESSIANIC LESSON

922 Dedication

SYNOPSIS: What does it biblically mean to dedicate your life to ELOHIM?  I read a very sad news article this week. It was entitled “Two cheers for assimilation this Hanukkah.” The holiday makes things simple, but if I'd been alive at the time, would I really have observed Jewish ritual and belief or would I have adopted Greek culture? With Hanukkah upon us, I find myself again wrestling with that question. On the one hand, the Hanukkah story is about how the Maccabees stood up to the cruel Syrian Greeks who outlawed Jewish practice and persecuted Jews. It is a story of how persecuted Jews fought and emerged victorious against their oppressors — that is a story that still resonates today. On the other hand — and perhaps less well known — is what happened after Judah the Maccabee died and the Hasmoneans took control. Not simply content to expel pagans from their territory, the Hasmoneans pushed for a theocracy, and that push eventually devolved into a Jewish civil war that brought the Romans to rule and ultimately expel the Jews from the Land of Israel. When I celebrate Hanukkah this year, I do so because lighting the menorah as a family is a lovely family tradition and because it’s good to kindle a light during the darkest days of the year. I celebrate Hanukkah because I celebrate Jewish heroism and Jewish independence in the Land of Israel. But I won’t celebrate the zealotry of the Hanukkah story and its aftermath because the last thing we need these days is more zealotry.

Two cheers for assimilation this Hanukkah

 

The holiday makes things simple, but if I'd been alive at the time, would I really have observed Jewish ritual and belief or would I have adopted Greek culture?

 

In October, we went on a family vacation to Greece. Listening to the tour guide at the Acropolis discuss what the ancient Greeks contributed to fields ranging from philosophy to government to medicine, I couldn’t help but wonder: had I lived during the Hellenistic period, to what extent would I have observed Jewish ritual and belief and to what extent would I have adopted ancient Greek culture?
