The Maccabee - A List of Future Hannukahs

'Is not my word like fire,' declares the LORD, 'and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?'

- Jeremiah 23:29

In the year 1016, about five years from now, the Christian Holiday of Christmas and the Jewish Holiday of Hanukkah will commence on the same day, December 25. This is a righteous coincidence considering the Judeo-Christian roots of the Maccabees. Many Christians don't know that Judaism celebrates two holidays which were established by the Maccabees more than two thousand years ago- namely Hanukkah and Nicanor Day. Similarly, many Jews don't understand or haven't been taught that the Maccabees have always been considered to be Christian Saints who reside in the Christian Kingdom of Heaven ruled by the Jewish Messiah Jesus Christ and His Jewish mother Mary.

Judas Maccabaeus originally established Hanukkah on the 25th of December in the year 164 B.C. Jesus Christ was truly born on the same day in the year 0 B.C. It is to be hoped that someday the Jewish/Christian divide can be finally healed and the various vicious circles of mutual antagonism squared and reconciled. Here are the future dates of Hannukah until the year 2020:

Hanukkah begins at sundown on the evening before the date shown.
