WEFOUNDThe Roots of Christianity in Mosaism: An Address, at the Opening of the Session 1869-70 of Manchester New College, October 4, 1869 (Classic Reprint)


The Jewish and Christian faiths share a rich common legacy in a chosen people, a land of promise, the God of Abraham, the Old Testament Scriptures, and holy days instituted by God. So how Jewish should the Christian faith be in look and practice today? Join us as we venture into the Jewish roots of Christianity. You’ll deepen your understanding of the Christian faith when you discover its origins.

The traditional holidays with their annual rituals are coming: Halloween costumes, Christmas decorations, Easter bunnies. Where did those traditions and practices come from? Celebrated as Christian holidays, shouldn’t these occasions be faithful to what the Bible says?

Carved vegetables, talismans against evil spirits, human sacrifice—these are not in line with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Halloween is still looked to by some as All Hallows’ Eve—the night before the Catholic All Saints’ Day, a supposedly holy occasion. Yet with all its ties to the occult and dark forces, Halloween is anything but holy. And it’s now shunned by many professing Christians. They see no value in celebrating a holiday that clearly originated from polytheism (the worship of multiple gods) and animism (belief in spiritual forces in inanimate objects). Such religions have been broadly referred to as pagan in Western societies since the time of the late Roman Empire.

If most of the beliefs and practices associated with Halloween originated in paganism, does the pagan influence end there?
