In Jesus’ day, Hanukkah was known as the Feast of Dedication. And we know from John’s gospel (10:22-30) that it was during this 8-day Jewish holiday that a group of Jews surrounded Jesus and asked:
How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.
Jesus, not known for being politically correct or religiously tolerant, answered:
I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.
They asked. He answered.
Jesus is God.
