Being the Consecrated One at Hanukkah

During Hanukkah, or the Feast of Dedication, the Jews remembered how the temple had been desecrated and defiled, but was reclaimed and rededicated to God. During this feast, Jesus claims to be the Messiah, Good Shepherd, and the one who is truly dedicated to God. Jesus is reclaiming God's sheep from the evil shepherds and is being the Holy Place for all who will come to him. What can we learn from this story?
