What is the difference between immanuel and emmanuel-?

Immanuel is derived from the Hebrew word "Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14). "Emmanuel" is derived from the Greek word in the New Testament (Matthew 1:23). Both spellings mean "God with us". Both spellings are correct. Remember that the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, a language that did not have vowels (e.g. 'e' or 'i'). So when the Hebrew was translated into Greek (i.e. the Septuagint), the translators rendered the Greek "Emmanuel" based on pronunciation not on a particular spelling. Later when the Hebrew vowel were added by Masoretic scholars, a vowel was added which modern scholars typically render as an 'i' rather than an 'e.' It is important to keep in mind that many ancient languages did not have fixed spellings, but instead spelled words based upon their sound. This was the problem that led Noah Webster to create the dictionary, to establish in America a standard spelling.

How do the months of the Hebrew calendar correspond to the Gregorian calendar?

Answer 1The Hebrew months have a rough correspondence to the Gregorian calendar. They line up with Gregorian months in a general way.Answer 2The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar which means that there is a general correspondence between the Hebrew months and the seasons, and there is a nearly exact correspondence between the Hebrew dates and the phases of the moon. This is as opposed to the Gregorian calender which is a solar calendar and has an almost exact correspondence between its months and the seasons (but no correspondence with the phases of the moon). As a result, while the Hebrew month of Nissan will dance around (from the Gregorian perspective) between March and April, it will never be in August or November or February. This is in contrast to the Islamic Calendar which is purely lunar and where the months dance around the solar year. For example, Ramadan is currently (in 2013) a summer month. In 2030, it will be a winter month, etc.Additionally, because of the way the Hebrew calendar accounts for its lunisolar discrepancies and the because of the way that the Gregorian Calendar accounts for its discrepancies, the Hebrew Calendar and the Gregorian Calendar date will be the same (or only one day off) for every date nineteen years apart. For example: August 25, 1994 was 18 Elul 5754 and August 25, 2013 (19 years later) will be 19 Elul 5773 (19 years later).

Is Hanukkah in December?

The Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, whilst the Gregorian calendar is a Solar Calendar, therefore they have different months. Often the Hebrew month of Kislev, which is the month in which Chanuka falls, will correlate to the Gregorian month of December, so it is common for Chanuka to fall in December. The way the Hebrew calendar is formed, the correlation between with the Gregorian months do not vary a great deal, as leap years occur periodically keeping the Hebrew months in the same season each year. This differes from the Islamic calendar, which is a purely lunar calendar - explaining why the month of Ramadan will occur at a different time of the Gregorian calendar every year.
