What if we Christians begin to Christianize the Menorah for Christmas so jews may adopt the Tree in their Hanukkah?

By the way, In the Book of the Apocalypse we read about the Lord among the Candles in the most holy of the holiest.


Revelation 1:12-13


12 So I turned, to see what voice it was that was speaking to me. And as I turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks, 13 and in the midst of these seven golden candlesticks one who seemed like a son of man, clothed in a long garment, with a golden girdle about his breast.

Hmmm, why not just keep it Hebrew and study what it might mean in its various contexts?

Perhaps because we also have it in the New Testament.

They dont need a Triangled Tree they can have a normal tree with lights and spheres, like a Burning Bush...

Exodus 3:2


And here the Lord revealed himself through a flame that rose up from the midst of a bush; it seemed that the bush was alight, yet did not burn.

A christmas tree has plasma leds or very hot filaments in light bulbs which may burn, but the Christmas tree doesn't burn. I mean, the similarities are astonishing. And Christmas tres are rather shorter tan real tres more like a bush size, Aren't they?

What if "christians"celebrated Hanukkah and then celebrated Mawlid al-Nabi and opened their homes to their JEWISH and MUSLIM neighbors instead of HIJACKING another religion's HOLY DAY and SYMBOLS??

How about you let Jewish people decide what THEY want to do and believe, keep your own religion out of it, and don't try to Christianize symbols that have nothing to do with your religion?

How about that?

I'm curious as to why you believe that doing one would lead to the other.

I don't care what you put up in house; you lighting a Chanukiah isn't going to lead me to putting up a Christmas tree in my house any more than you copying a seder is going to make me celebrate Easter.

Christianism is the Plenitud of Judaism, you can't be more jew than by being a Christian Catholic at leas that is what Mother Miriam Former Roselind Moss who was a Jew converted to Protestantism then to catholicism then ordered Nun. The promises of YHVH given to the Prophets were fulfilled in YHSH. Islam in Exchange to Judaism far from fulfilling the Prophesies of the Old Testament is a kind of setback in the Revelation Trajectory.


By the Way Hanukkah is not in the Sacred Scriptures of the Jewish Canon or protestant canon, but we can Read of the events sorounding it in the Catholic/Orthodox canon in the Books of Macabees which both Jews and Protestants reject.
