"And it was winter..."

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
And it was winter....
You might recognize that phrase as coming from the gospel according to John.
 

"And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication [=Hanukkah], and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."  John 10:22-23

 

Guess what?  In the year 32 A.D., Hanukkah spanned the dates, December 17 to December 24 (the eighth day).

 

The first day of winter is, of course, December 21 (day 5 in 32 A.D.).

 

Baruch HaShem Yeshua Ha Mashiach,
