Challah is the traditional bread that is eaten on Shabbat meals every Friday night in many Jewish and Hebraic Christian homes. In ancient times two loaves of challah (that its with leaven) were offered up to God in a wave offering representing both the Jewish people and those from the nations. It is a beautiful picture of a triple-braided loaf of bread symbolizing many aspects of God. Christians see this imagery as a Trinity; God our Father, sent us His Messiah and His Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh) who now fills us with His Power and Presence. It is also a picture of Two or Three witnesses, the patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), three heavens, three days in the grave and many more! It was Yeshua that identified himself to that of bread saying “I am the Bread of Life”.
