The BRIT CHADASHA[New Covenant Scriptures] records YAHSHUA MESSIAH coming to YAHrushalayim for this festive celebration:
"And it was the feast of the dedication atYAHrushalayim:it was winter; and Yahshua was walking in the temple in Solomon's porch.The YAHudims therefore came round about Him, and said unto Him, How long dost thou hold us in suspense? If thou art Ha Mashiyach, tell us plainly.Yahshua answered them, I told you, and ye believe not: the works that I do in my Abba's name[YAHWEH], these bear witness of me.But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep.My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:and I give unto them Eternal life; and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.My Abba, who hath given them unto me, is GREATER than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Abba's hand",.Yochanan/John 10:22-29
