Did Jesus celebrate Purim and Hanukkah? Does it matter if he did? Does the establishment of Purim (Esther 9:20-22) and Hanukkah (1 Macc. 4:59; see also John 10:22) go against the set patterns of days and festivals that God had given through Moses? How does this affect the doctrine of the Regulative Principle? Does it show that believers are at liberty to set aside festival days?
