‘Messianic’ Jews often like to claim how ‘pro-scritpure’ they are and so anti Oral Law, and (in their words) anti ‘Rabbinic Judaism’.

However, as we enter Channukah, we find many ‘Jews for Jesus’ shops filled with Channukiyot and Dreidles on sale, even their webpage is covered with Channukah paraphernalia!

Of course, the obvious question is: why would they celebrate Channukah? The sources for this festival come from the ORAL TORAH (and if you want to count the Book of the Macabees – then that is found in the Catholic Bible).

So my question for ‘messianic Jews’ is: if you celebrate Channukah, is it because you are secretly a ‘Rabbinic Jew’ or a Catholic?
