John McKee comments on how discussions pertaining to the nature and origin of Christmas on December 25 have exploded in recent years.

Mark and Margaret Huey, and John McKee discuss some of the challenges that arise for Messianic people in the month of December, involving Chanukah and Christmas. Also, update on current events, specifically involving Election 2020!
The Winter holiday season, involving Christmas and Chanukah, can be a very challenging time for those within the Messianic community. How are we supposed to best approach this time, in a way that reflects the love and salvation of Yeshua?
No matter who you are or what religious ideology you hold to, the Winter holiday season involving Christmas will be a challenge. It is first a challenge to non-Believers as they are continually presented with the message of the birth of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) into a world that is lost in sin. Secondly, the Christmas holiday is a challenging time for many Christians who seek to remember the birth of our Savior, but at the same time all too often indulge themselves in overly frivolous gift-giving. And thirdly, the Christmas season is a challenge to Messianic Believers, as we choose not to celebrate this holiday.
