  • Appreciate how each feast offers a tangible experience with profound spiritual significance

The biblical feasts help us understand Jesus and the Bible in their Jewish cultural context. Feasts in Hebrew is “moadim” which means “appointed times” and each one demonstrates the redemptive work of Yeshua the Messiah. They are holy convocations that God calls “my feasts” (Lev. 23:2). Every believer grafted into the Olive Tree is invited to participate. 

God instituted seven special dates that all point to His plan of salvation in Yeshua the Messiah.

1. Shabbat (Day of Rest): the weekly holiday to receive rest, healing, and restoration of the soul, body, and spirit.

2. Pesach (Passover): the first feast of spring, commemorates the Exodus. It was fulfilled through Messiah Yeshua, the Passover Lamb of the New Covenant.

3. Feast of Unleavened Bread and First Fruits: is a feast of consecration commemorating the first harvest of the season (Barley Harvest). It was fulfilled with the resurrection of Jesus as the first fruits from the dead.

4. Shavuot (Feast of Pentecost): celebrates the giving of the commandments (The Torah). Fulfilled by the inauguration of the New Covenant in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

5. Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets): the first feast of the fall commemorated by blowing the shofar, which later became the Jewish New Year. Some believe that Jesus will return around this day. Kicks off the Ten Days of Awe, a time of reflection and forgiveness.

6. Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement): a day of fasting, prayer and repentance. It is the one time per year when the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the sins of Israel. Jesus fulfilled this by giving His own blood for the forgiveness of sin of all mankind.

7. Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles): a seven-day feast that remembers the dwelling of the Israelites in booths in the wilderness for 40 years before entering the Promised Land. Prophetically it points to the millennial reign. It will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to Earth.
