Let Light Shine Out of Darkness (CD)
The Historical Origins And Spiritual Dimensions Of Hanukkah
Author: Dwight Pryor
Product code: CDS74
The Festival of Light, Hanukkah (John 10:22), associated with the supernatural lighting of the Menorah, holds profound promise and wonder for followers of Jesus. Dwight and his wife, Keren Hannah, explore its historical origins and spiritual dimensions.
Jesus went up to Jerusalem in the winter to celebrate Hanukkah at the House of the LORD. Two hundred years before, a band of courageous Jewish brothers, called the Maccabees, rededicated that Temple to the Holy One of Israel after miraculously defeating the corrupting pagan forces of Hellenism seeking to be imposed upon Israel by the Syrian monarch Antiochus Epiphanes.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)

About the Author
(1945-2011) Founder of the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies in Dayton, Ohio. He was also a founding board member of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research in Israel. While studying in the Land, he came to realise the critical importance of understanding Christianity's Hebraic origins and dimensions and worked with both Christian and Jewish scholars there researching the backgrounds to the life and teachings of Yeshua Mi Natzeret, (Jesus of Nazareth) the Jewish Messiah.
As one of the most widely acclaimed teachers on the subject, for over 25 years Dwight and his wife Keren travelled world wide with their teaching and preaching ministry, seeking to make available to the Church an ever-growing wealth of study materials.
Their main aim was to equip believers for a fruitful life of participation in the purposes of God by learning how to think biblically. With this in mind they created a way for disciples, serious about understanding the Bible and yearning to get back to the Jewish/Hebraic foundations of their faith, to benefit from the teaching ministry of Dwight on an ongoing basis.
