S1 EP17 | Christmas and Chanukah: The Questions You’ve Always Had

It’s “the most wonderful time of year,” and both Christians and Jewish people enjoy the winter holiday season. This episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss is informative, personal and oh-so relevant. And we can almost guarantee that you’ll be surprised at some of the things you’ll learn. Carly and Ezra ask each other about their holiday impressions, understandings and traditions growing up and how things changed after coming to faith in Jesus as the Messiah. Then, Carly digs deeper to understand the Jewish holiday of Chanukah and how Jewish people view Christmas, including: Jewish thought about when Jesus was born If Chanukah is in the Bible Why some Messianic Jews don’t celebrate Christmas now If Christians should celebrate Chanukah What about Christmas caroling at a Jewish person’s home? Along the Way In the course of the discussion, you’ll also hear what Chanukah is all about and how Christmas and Chanukah “have everything to do with each other.” You’ll learn some famous Christmas songs written by Jewish people. (You read that right.) Ezra reveals some perspectives, perhaps commonly but secretly held by Jewish people, about this “most wonderful time of year” and their quasi-inclusion in it. You’ll hear how, while sensitivity is essential, apologizing for sharing the Gospel with Jewish people reaffirms a critical misunderstanding among them. Ezra and Carly also cover some questions Christians might have about the season and engaging across the divide between Jewish people and Christians, including: What’s the best way to engage with my Jewish neighbor during Chanukah? Would inviting a Jewish person to a Christmas play be offensive? Do Jewish people invite non-Jews over for Chanukah celebrations?

S2 EP6 | Purim - Beyond the Partying

“I’ll take Purim for 800, Alex.” There’s meaning to every holiday, but sometimes it gets lost behind its symbols and traditions. Listen to this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, and you might even ace a Purim category on Jeopardy. From ooos and boos, noisemakers and baked goods, to the threat of destruction and profound deliverance, Purim has it all. Join Carly and Ezra as they discuss the story, meaning and traditions of Purim – one of the most festive Jewish holidays on the calendar. You’ll hear: The Purim story, its main characters and the meaning beyond the partying What graggers are and their part in Purim celebrations What the Purim plays are all about How young the brave and noble Queen Esther may have been Why Purim is both fasting and feasting All about hamantaschen Along the Way The conversation leads to all kinds of fun facts and meaningful insights, including: • How rabbinical tradition gauges “celebrating well” • The most common Purim tradition • The saying that evolved into “the whole enchilada” • Why retelling stories is a part of so many Jewish holidays • A traditional, ancient Jewish curse (not that we endorse it) and what it has to do with Purim celebrations • The historical pattern of “intended annihilation” followed by great deliverance of the Jewish people • What “ears” have to do with Purim’s most famous baked treat • The super-surprising number of times God is mentioned in the book of Esther • God’s miraculous fingerprints all over the Purim story   Words You Might Learn in This Episode Gragger, Megillah, Megillat Esther, pur, Purim, Hadassah, chag, Chag Purim, tsum, Tsum Esther, hamantaschen, oznei Haman, mohntaschen Scriptures Referenced in This Episode Esther 3:7, Esther 7:1–6, Esther 4:14, Esther 4:15–16, Jeremiah 25:11–12, Daniel 12:11, ...
