God gave the biblical festivals to teach the Jewish people about His character and to help us understand His plan of salvation. But all Christians who have been grafted in to the olive tree (Romans 11:17) share our rich heritage and roots. So as we approach the last of the High Holy Days on the Jewish calendar, we hope you will find it meaningful.
The Feast of Tabernacles is an eight day festival that begins at sundown on the first day of the feast (see the Jewish Calendar from Judaism 101).
The Gospels record that our Lord Jesus not only celebrated the festival, but He took traditional elements of the celebration and applied them to His own life and mission. We find this particularly in John 7 and 8 where Jesus uses two traditional symbols from the Feast of Tabernacles celebration, water and light, to help the people understand who He is and what He offers.
