Feast of Tabernacles

The High Holidays or “Days of Awe” and Rosh Hashanah have just concluded this past week with the solemn fast and deep contemplations of Yom Kippur, and we are about to embark this week (click here for a calendar and brief explanation of this fall’s events) on one of our faith’s most lasting celebrations, Sukkot or the Feast of Tabernacles. Every biblical holiday given to the Jewish people has these three aspects: Israel was commanded to observe the holiday in the present in order to remember something God had done in the past, and because of some future prophetic purpose hidden within each...

The Triumph of the Kingdom

Why Do Christians Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles? By: Malcolm Hedding, International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, 27 Aug 2018 The yearly celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles [also known as Succot] is one of the three great annual and biblically-required festivals; the other two being Passover and Pentecost. These biblical Feasts have great significance in that they all speak of the glorious redemptive plan of God. Passover teaches us about the Door to the Kingdom of God – the salvation from our sins by the spilled blood of a lamb. This serves as a glorious picture of the death...

Passover 2017

Starting this Monday evening Jewish communities worldwide will begin celebrating the festival of Passover, or Pesach, which commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in one of the important festivities in the Jewish calendar. According to the Book of Exodus in the Torah, Moses called for the Pharaoh to free the Israelites, warning that if he failed to do so, Egypt would be struck by terrible plagues – the last one of which would be the death of every Egyptian first-born male. The Pharaoh refused to do so, despite the onslaught of plagues of frogs, flies, the death of...
