Book: Jeremiah, John, Micah

When the Temple was cleaned and rededicated by the Maccabees, its menorah had to be lit with oil that had been ritually purified and sealed by a rabbi. The Maccabees could only find enough purified oil to last one day, and it would take eight more days to produce more under proper ritual standards. Somehow, the one-day supply of oil lasted eight days. This legend is known as the miracle of Hanukka.


Jeremiah 31; Micah 5:2; John 10:22.
