The script is the actual book. It contains a lot more material.
You should read it. Really, all the fun stuff is in the footnotes.
How odd is it that I’m the one telling this story? I’m not a Jew. I’m not a Christian. And yet here I am. Why me? Why isn’t a Jew or a Christian telling this story?
Well, Jews don’t know it. Sorry, Jews, but you really don’t. The story of Hanukkah is told in a couple of Bible books, Macabbees I and Maccabbees II, and neither of these Bible books is in the Tanakh, the Jewish Bible.
The only place you can find those two books now is in Catholic Bibles. How weird is that?
So if you’re a Jew, and want to read the story of the Macabbees and the re-dedication of the Temple, the basis for one of the most important celebrations in Judaism, that’s what you need to find: a Catholic Bible.
I personally guarantee that no Jew you know has ever read either of those books. No Jews even have them in their libraries, except for a few rabbis maybe, and not many of those.
Of course no Christian has ever read them either.
Nobody knows this story. And anyone who starts looking into it, frankly, starts getting bewildered. Really fast. His (or her) mind starts doing pinwheels. People today just don’t have the Background for it anymore. When it comes to Old Testament history, people these days, if you don’t mind my saying, are a pretty ignorant bunch.
