Don't forget Sunday Feb. 28th is the Feast of Pruim (see the Book of Esther)

Also the day before (Sat. Feb. 27th) is the Feast of Nicanor (see 2Macc. 15:28-36)

I might write "Nicanor" on the sole of my shoes and dance with joy until the name is blotted out :-)

Well, the world is full of Nicanors and sooner or later they all meet the same fate. Thanks James for bringing this to our attention.

There are those who question the veracity of the book of Esther and the whole Purim story. For what it's worth, I for one accept Esther as canonical. As for Yahweh's Name not being readily apparent in this book, I refer readers to Appendix 60 in Bullinger's Companion Bible. In this Appendix, Bullinger shows the Tetragrammaton, YHWH, appearing four times in acrostic form, plus a fifth acrostic "I AM." My personal conclusion from this is that Esther is a Canonical book and the events recorded in the book are true and correct. Moreover, Yahshua never traveled to Jerusalem except for Holy Days of minor festivals. A careful rading of the Book of Yochanan (John) will reveal that He was in Jerusalem not only for Chanukkah but for Purim as well. We must be willing to dig out, as if in a mining operation, some of the more obscure truths in the Bible. Yahweh will bless us for our efforts with wisdom, knowledge, insight, and understanding.

I haven't been on for quite a while. I have recently had a skin graft on my ankle and am recovering and doing as little as possible so as to give it time to heal. However, a question was asked regarding Yahshua keeping Purim. it is in Yochanan (John) chapter 5. The only times He went to Jerusalem were for the Modeim and minor festivals of Chanukkah (John 10) and Purim (John 5).

Esther canonical. Yes Anaiah, thank you. I have little if any time for those who want to denigrate books of the Bible.

 Why do you think the feast of John 5 was Purim?  just curious.
