The traditional Hanukkah story of the miracle of the oil and the menorah is a cute tradition but has no foundation in scripture. The nine branched menorah known as a "Hanukkiah" is a relatively modern invention. The true story of Hanukkah is prophesied in the seventh and eighth chapters of the Book of Daniel. The fulfillment of this prophecy is explicitly detailed in the First and Second Book of Maccabees, which are found in the writings of the Apocrypha.
Originally the writings of the Apocrypha were simply understood to be additional books of the Bible. The Eastern Orthodox Church as well as the Roman Catholic Church recognized the Apocrypha as a part of their Canon of Scriptures. The reformers, however, recognized the dubious origin of several of these writings and therefore designated them as being important historical documents, written during the time between the Old and New Testaments, but did not recognize these writings as having the same authority as the Scriptures. Most early English translations of the Bible included the writings of the Apocrypha and located them appropriately between the Old and New Testament. Later, publishers, however, feared that the presence of these writings between the covers of the Holy Bible would give these writings credibility and authority in the minds of believers and therefore omitted these historically significant writings from their Bibles.
We are pleased to make these writings available to you in this hardback King James Version. We highly recommend this valuable resource not only for reading the true story of Hanukkah, but also for great insight into the times and writings leading up to the life of Yeshua the Messiah. This is a valuable resource for any student of the Scriptures.
