    The foremost and consummate antichrist type in the Bible is Antiochus Epiphanes. In the book, “The Understanding of Ornament in the Italian Renaissance”, author Clare Lapraik Guest, states that his processions, “contained temporal allegories and robed statues of the gods plus mythological scenes.” In 168 B.C. he conquered Jerusalem, and inside the Jewish temple, slaughtered a pig on an idol he built to the god, Jupiter. In referencing the Abomination of Desolation in the book of Daniel, Christ linked the Antichrist to Antiochus (Mark 13:14). Antichrist — like Antiochus before him — will also set up an idol in the future temple in Jerusalem and sacrifice to it. The Bible also associates the Antichrist to another person — The Roman General, Titus. In 70 A.D., Titus brought an army against Jerusalem in a series of campaigns which ultimately led to its final complete destruction in 130 A.D. Daniel says that the future Antichrist will be linked to the very people that destroyed Jerusalem (Daniel 9:26). The Arch of Titus in Rome celebrates the victory of General Titus. Wikipedia states, “Sculpted panels on the arch of Titus (built by Domitian) celebrate Titus ' and Vespasian 's joint triumph over the Jews after the siege of Jerusalem, with a triumphal procession of captives and treasures seized from the temple of Jerusalem – some of which funded the building of the Colloseum.” [SIC] I encourage the reader to take a moment and search the internet for the phrase, “PICTURE…

    With Saul in particular, we have typology of the Antichrist and Christ side-by-side. Scripture says, “The women sang as they played, and said, ‘Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands.’” (1 Sam. 8:7) David here is a type of Christ who would later have His own triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey. (John 12:14-15) The foremost and consummate antichrist type in the Bible is Antiochus Epiphanes. In the book, “The Understanding of Ornament in the Italian Renaissance”,…

    Chanukkah Research Paper

    • 4 Pages

    However, the holiday's religious significance is far less than that of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Passover, and Shavu'ot. It is roughly equivalent to Purim in significance, and you won't find many non-Jews who have even heard of Purim! Chanukkah is not mentioned in Jewish scripture; the story is related in the book of Maccabees, which Jews do not accept as scripture. The only religious observance related to the holiday is the lighting of candles. The candles are arranged in a…

Even though a hanukkiyah is a type of menorah it is different from the menorah used in the Temple, which only has seven branches. The eight candles of the hanukkiyah represent the eight days the oil burned in the menorah and one candle is each night until the final night when all of the candles are lite. Each of the eight candles are lit with the use of the “helper” candle…

    word Hanukkah means ‘dedication,' which reinforces the meaning of this holiday. Throughout the eight-day holiday, the lighting of the menorah is the public aspect of Judaism.

    Freedom of religion is certainly a privilege for which we all have to be thankful. Chanukah is the perfect occasion for celebrating this freedom. In the special "Al Hanissim" Prayer that we add on Chanukah to our regular daily prayers and grace after meals we recall what the wicked Hellenist Greeks tried to inflict upon our ancestors. They made an effort to force assimilation upon them by causing them to forget the Torah and to follow this by abandoning their fulfillment of the G-dly commands.…

    the Jewish people future. If the convenient were not made between Abraham and God, there would be no Jewish people. If the Babylonian exile never occurred there could be no Mishnah or Talmud, which is a foundational work for the Rabbinate. The menorah exhibit was a very new experience for me. I have never actually seen a real menorah before I’ve seen images of it, but never a physical one in front of me. In addition, I didn’t know there were different appearances for a menorah. I always…
