John 10:22 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication," (egeneto tote ta egkainia en tois lerosolumois) "There was (occurred) then the dedication in Jerusalem," the feast of dedication, or annual re-consecration of the temple, Ezr 6:16. This was some two months after the account previously related, at the healing of the blind man, Joh 9:1-41. This temple re-consecration recalled the renewal by Judaeus Maccabaeus (167 BC), after its pollution by Antiochus Epiphanes, when he offered a sow on the altar and made fun of it and its sacred services.

2) "And it was winter." (cheimon hen) "It was winter," and this is why Jesus was teaching inside, Joh 10:23, rather than outside and it was also likely stormy weather. It was on the 18th day of December of our calendar year and lasted for eight days, Antiq. of Josephus, 12:7,9.
