The Daughters of Nahash or the daughters of Jesse

Regarding the Nachash of Genesis. I thought you might find this interesting.

Isaiah, Chapter 11, verses 1-3:“ And there shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots...[2] ”

This is regarded by Christians as a prophecy of Jesus, who Christians consider to be the Messiah.

The Bible also says that King David had two sisters, Zeruiah and Abigail. However, they are never called daughters of Jesse in the masoretic text, but daughters of Nahash. (2 Samuel 17:25). .

This may be why the Ha-nakhah dreidel has the letters (Gematria 358) for Nachash in one direction and for the Messiah in the other. (and also Shekin-ah)


Hanukkah (Hebrew: חנוכה‎, IPA: ['χanuka], alt. Chanukah), also known as the Festival of Lights.

The story of Hanukkah is alluded to in the book of 1 Maccabees and 2 Maccabees of the Septuagint but Ha-nukkah is not specially mentioned; rather, a story similar in character, and obviously older in date, is the one alluded to in 2 Maccabees 1:18 et seq according to which the relighting of the altar fire by Nehemiah was due to a miracle which occurred on the twenty-fifth of Kislev, and which appears to be given as the reason for the selection of the same date for the rededication of the altar by Judah Maccabee.
