Menorah Gold & Silver Plated Star of David From Holy Land Jerusalem H/39 x W/26
Messianic Menorah which cleverly forms the Grafted In symbol. Plated in precious metal over a brass foundation.The menorah cleverly uses the branches of an actually menorah to form the top of the Messainci symbol, the Grafted In. The stem is in the form of the Star of David and Fish of Yeshua to complete the symbol. The Grafted In dates from the earliest followers of Yeshua and consists of a menorah which flows into a Star of David which becomes a Fish of Yeshua. This menorah is solidly made and will look wonderful in any room. It is formed by plating precious metal over brass.
"The Menorah back in times of the temple is a seven-branched lampstand used in the temple of Jerusalem.
As described in the Bible it was made of pure gold. Set by Moses and primarily a portable lamp till set in the temple.
In order to light the branches of the menorah, the purest olive oil was used. The Menorah is the symbol of the Israeli religion in ancient times and modern times.
In Exodus 25:31-40 - God instructs Moses how to form the Menorah.
In 2009 - the ruins of the most ancient synagogue - were exposed in Magdala, the place of birth Maria Magdalena, inside the ruins was a rectangular stone which has on its' surface a big carving of the seven-branched Menorah. Those carvings of the same shape as Menorah were found in Archeological sites along the years, related to the first century and on - after the fall of the second temple.
Since at those times there was no electricity, the Menorah provided light every day from sunset to dawn. Using fresh pure olive oil.
In Christianity, it is mentioned in the book of revelation - like the lamp with the seven branches to symbolize the 7 churches of Asia.
Also representing the 7 classical planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars Jupiter, and Saturn.
The Menorah symbolizes universal enlightenment.
The Menorah is also associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
In the Talmud, the Menorah is related to the miracle of light. During the war with the Greeks, the little pure oil that was left enough for 1 day - lit the menorah for whole 8 days."
