        The Sabbath of Rest
 Leviticus Chapter 23
 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
Concerning the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall
proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my
feasts.
 3 Six days shall work be done; but the seventh day is
the sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; ye shall do
no work therein; it is the sabbath of the Lord in all
your dwellings.
         The Lord’s Passover
4 These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy
convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even
is the Lord's passover.




                                   www.lostseed.com
The Feast of Unleavened Bread
 6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the
 feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord; seven days ye
 must eat unleavened bread.
  7 In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye
 shall do no servile work therein.
  8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the
 Lord seven days; in the seventh day is a holy
 convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein.
            The First-fruits
9 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
 10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say
unto them, When ye be come into the land
which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest
thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first-
fruits of your harvest unto the priest;
 11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord,
to be accepted for you; on the morrow after
the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf a
he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt
offering unto the Lord.
13 And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth
deals of fine flour mingled with oil, and offering made
by fire unto the Lord for a sweet savor; and the drink
offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a
hin.
14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor
green ears, until the self-same day that ye have brought
an offering unto your God; it shall be a statute for ever
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
       The Festival of Weeks
15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the
sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the
wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete;
16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath
shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat
offering unto the Lord.
17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of
two tenth deals; they shall be of fine flour; they shall be
baken with leaven; they are the first-fruits unto the Lord.
18 And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without
blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two
rams; they shall be for a burnt offering unto the Lord, with
their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an
offering made by fire, of sweet savor unto the Lord.
19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin
offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice
of peace offerings.
20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of
the first-fruits for a wave offering before the Lord, with
the two lambs; they shall be holy to the Lord for the
priest.
21 And ye shall proclaim on the self-same day, that it
may be a holy convocation unto you; ye shall do no
servile work therein; it shall be a statute for ever in
all your dwellings throughout your generations.
22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou
shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy
field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any
gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them unto the
poor, and to the stranger; I am the Lord your God.
        Blowing of Trumpets
23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the
seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall
ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets,
a holy convocation.
25 Ye shall do no servile work therein; but ye shall offer
an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
        A Day of Atonement
 26 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
 27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month
there shall be a day of atonement; it shall be a holy
convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls,
and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
 28 And ye shall do no work in that same day; for it is a
day of atonement, to make an atonement for you
before the Lord your God.
 29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted
in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his
people.
30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work
in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from
among his people.
31 Ye shall do no manner of work; it shall be a
statute for ever throughout your generations in all
your dwellings.
32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye
shall afflict your souls; in the ninth day of the
month at even, from even unto even, shall ye
celebrate your sabbath.
         Feast of Tabernacles
33 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth
day of this seventh month shall be the feast of
tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.
35 On the first day shall be a holy convocation; ye shall do
no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto
the Lord; on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation
unto you, and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto
the Lord; it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile
work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall
proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering
made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat
offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, everything upon
his day;
38 Beside the sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts,
and beside all your vows, and beside all your free-will
offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month,
when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall
keep a feast unto the Lord seven days; on the first day
shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a
sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of
goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and the boughs
of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall
rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord
seven days in the year; it shall be a statute for
ever in your generations; ye shall celebrate it
in the seventh month.
42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all
that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths;
43 That your generations may know that I
made the children of Israel to dwell in
booths, when I brought them out of the land
of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.
44 And Moses declared unto the children of
Israel the feasts of the Lord.
     Questions about the Feasts

Why should we consider the Feasts of the Lord?

What is the difference between the Hebrew calendar
and the Gregorian calendar?

Who comprises the House of Israel?

Why should we concern ourselves with Jewish
traditions?
   Why should we consider the Feasts of the Lord?

 Because the Lord said, “even these are my feasts”.
 To remember that the Lord brought the Children of Israel
  out of the land of Egypt.
 The Feasts are for all the House of Israel.
 Jesus was of the Tribe of Judah and the House of
  David.
 They are rehearsals for prophesy fulfilled and to be
  fulfilled through Jesus Christ.
What are the differences between the Hebrew calendar
             and the Gregorian calendar?

• The Feasts of the Lord are on the Hebrew calendar.
• The Hebrew calendar and our calendar, the Gregorian
    calendar, work differently.
•   The Gregorian calendar has twelve months of 30 or 31
    days and an extra day every four years.
•   The Hebrew calendar has 12 months of 29 or 30 days
    with a 13th month on a regular pattern.
•    For this reason the Feasts of the Lord will be at
    different points on the Gregorian calendar year by year.
  Who comprises the House of Israel?

Book of Mormon 2 Nephi Chapter 12
50 O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine
ancient covenant people?
51 Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them,
and have not sought to recover them.
52 But behold, I will return all these things upon your
own heads; for I, the Lord, hath not forgotten my
people.
      Who comprises the House of Israel?
Book of Mormon 2 Nephi Chapter 12
75 And now, behold, my beloved brethren, I would speak unto
you: for I, Nephi, would not suffer that ye should suppose that ye
are more righteous than the Gentiles shall be.
76 For behold, except ye shall keep the commandments of God
ye shall all likewise perish; and because of the words which have
been spoken ye need not suppose that the Gentiles are utterly
destroyed.
77 For behold, I say unto you, That as many of the Gentiles as
will repent, are the covenant people of the Lord; and as
many of the Jews as will not repent, shall be cast off;
78 For the Lord covenanteth with none, save it be with them
that repent and believe in his Son, who is the Holy One of
Israel.
Why should we concern ourselves with
         Jewish traditions?
For me it is a simple
answer. We believe that
Jesus Christ is the Messiah.
But we have not kept the
feasts. The Jewish people
have actually kept the
feasts all these years. If
they hadn’t we wouldn’t
know anything about
them. We can look to their
traditions for guidance.

                Shabbat
From the Doctrine and Covenants
[Sec 119:7a] And the Spirit saith further: Inasmuch as there has been much
discussion in the past concerning the Sabbath of the Lord, the church is
admonished that until further revelation is received, or the quorums of the
church are assembled to decide concerning the law in the church articles and
covenants,
[Sec 119:7b] the Saints are to observe the first day of the week commonly
called the Lord's day, as a day of rest: as a day of worship, as given in the
covenants and commandments.
[Sec 119:7c] And on this day they should refrain from unnecessary work;
nevertheless, nothing should be permitted to go to waste on that day, nor
should necessary work be neglected.
[Sec 119:7d] Be not harsh in judgment but merciful in this, as in all other
things. Be not hypocrites nor of those who make a man an offender for a word.

Revelation given through Joseph Smith III, April 11, 1887, at Kirtland, Ohio.
How do Jewish people celebrate the
            Sabbath?
                                                             The Sabbath is the
                                                             seventh day of the
                                                             Hebrew week. On our

                                                             sunset. The Jewish
                                                             people begin with a
                                                             ritual in which the
                                                             woman of the house
                                                             lights two candles and
                                                             recites a blessing right
                                                             before sunset.

Shabbat includes the head of
the house reciting a blessing
on the wine and on two loaves
of challah bread. Meals are
festive and leisurely.

They also attend services and
study the Torah.

They go for walks and other
leisurely activities and rest.

There are blessings for the end
of the Sabbath Saturday
evening.
A word about sabbaths . . . .

The seventh day of every week is a sabbath.

But, there are also sabbaths which can be on any day
of the week. Some of the feast days are considered
sabbaths. The scriptures use the words “Holy
convocations” and “do no servile work”.

Because of this there is a discrepancy between
Shavu’ot for the Jewish people and Pentecost for the
Christian people.

The rabbis chose a feast day sabbath to begin the
count of the Omer and Christians chose the weekly
sabbath as the counting of days to Pentacost.
    Questions about each individual feast


What was happening to the Children of Israel at the time of the
Exodus?

How was it fulfilled by Jesus Christ or will be fulfilled by Jesus Christ?

How do Jewish people celebrate this feast?

Are there any significant events on this date for us?

What was happening to the Children of Israel
          at the Lord’s Passover?

                                            On the 14th day of the
                                            month, Nisan, the
                                            Children of Israel killed a
                                            lamb in the afternoon
                                            and painted the blood
                                            on their lintel. Then they
                                            roasted the lamb and
                                            prepared the meal before
                                            they would be ejected
                                            from Egypt.

Jesus born Nisan 10


            Before the temple, on Nisan
            10 the lambs were taken into
            the home to be inspected.

            The first ones to visit Jesus
            were not just ordinary
            shepherds. These shepherds
            raised the lambs for the
            temple. On Nisan 10 the
            lambs for the sacrifice were
            taken to the temple and
            inspected to make sure they
            were perfect.
 Jesus was born on Nisan 10? How can we know
                     this?
3 Nephi chapter 1 and chapter 4

Samuel the Lamanite prophesied the events of Jesus
Christ’s birth and death.

At Jesus’ birth the signs were fulfilled.

The people began counting the years.

On the fourth day of the 34th year the darkness and
earthquake came which signified Jesus Christ’s death.
That would be Nisan 14, Passover.

 How do Jewish people celebrate
         the Passover?
On this day present day Jewish people
prepare for the Passover. In scripture
it is called the day of preparation.
They clean all leavened food out of the
house and get ready for the Seder
meal on the 15th of Nisan.
There is also a Fast of the Firstborn.
The firstborn males fast as
commemoration of the night when
Israel’s firstborn were spared from
death.                                    Copy-right-free-pictures.org .uk
The 14th of Nisan is the day the lamb
was killed in Egypt and in the Temple.
It is the day that Jesus Christ died.

                                                             Leavening is symbolic of sin.

                                                             Before the 15th of Nisan all
                                                             leavened foods, including
                                                             crumbs, need to be cleaned
                                                             out or the house. At the end
                                                             of cleaning some crumbs are
                                                             left for the children to search
                                                             for and find. They use a

                                                             onto a wooden spoon. They
                                                             blow out the candle and then
                                                             put everything in a paper bag

What was happening to the Children of Israel
    at the Feast of Unleavened Bread?
                           Exodus 12

                           30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all
                           his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a
                           great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where
                           there was not one dead.

                           31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night,
                           and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among
                           my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and
                           go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.

                           32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have
                           said, and be gone; and bless me also.

                           33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the
                           people, that they might send them out of the land
                           in haste; for they said, We have found our
                           firstborn all dead; therefore get ye out of the land
                           lest we die also.

                           34 And the people took their dough before it was
                           leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up
                           in their clothes upon their shoulders.

                             the first month, on the fifteenth day
                             of the first month; on the morrow
                             after the passover the children of Israel
                             went out with a high hand in the sight
                             of all the Egyptians.
                             4 For the Egyptians buried all their
                             firstborn, which the Lord had smitten
                             among them; upon their gods also the
                             Lord executed judgments.
                             5 And the children of Israel removed
                             from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth.

                                         during the Feast of Unleavened
                                         Bread is to remember that the
                                         Children of Israel left Egypt so fast
                                         that they could not leaven their
                                         bread.
                                        Leavening is also symbolic of sin.

        The Seder Meal
               The very first Seder meal was observed the night
               before the Children of Israel left Egypt.

               It is a festive and ritual meal to remember the
               story of their bondage in Egypt and how God
               delivered them.

               It includes wine, unleavened bread, and bitter
               herbs. There is also charoset, a mixture of
               chopped apples, nuts, spices and wine.

               They used to eat lamb or goat when the temple
               was in existence. Now they eat other meats as
               well, such as turkey and beef and salmon.

               The Seder plate is a teaching aid and also

What was happening to the Children of Israel on

 “Some Jewish scholars believe that in
  the original Passover the Jews would
  have received their freedom on
  Sunday, the day Pharaoh drowned in
  the sea and the same day the Christ
  rose from the dead. Pharaoh’s death
  released all ownership rights freeing
  Israel to continue on into the
  Promised Land! On Nisan 17, when
  Israel emerged from the Red Sea, this
  emergence was a shadow of the
  fulfillment of the day of resurrection
  and Firstfruits (Lev. 23:9-14).”

The First Festival of Weeks the Children of Israel
                were meeting God
                            And mount Sinai was
                            altogether on a smoke,
                            because the Lord
                            descended upon it in
                            fire; and the smoke
                            thereof ascended as the
                            smoke of a furnace, and
                            the whole mount quaked
                            greatly. (Exodus 19)

         At Mount Sinai
         Biblical-art.com
The people actually heard God's voice speaking to
them. But they were afraid of the thunder,
lightening, noise of trumpets, and smoke. They
said to Moses, "You talk with God and then tell us
what He says. We are afraid."

So Moses went to talk with God and God told him
to tell the people, "You have heard My voice from
heaven." But after that the people would not listen
to God's voice directly, Moses must talk with Him
because they were too afraid. (From Exodus
Chapter 20)
We know the Festival of Weeks as
          Pentecost
On the day of
Pentecost Christ’s
disciples were gathered
together. The Holy
Ghost rested upon
their heads like flames.
3000 men were
converted to Jesus
Christ that day.

                           www.lostseed.com
The Book of Ruth is read at the Festival of Weeks
                              Ruth came from Moab with her mother-
                               in-law, Naomi. She gleaned barley and
                               wheat in the fields of Boaz.

                              On the night that the people celebrated
                               the barley harvest on the barley
                               threshing floor, Ruth lay at Boaz’ feet
                               and under his cloak. As a close male
                               relative to her late husband, he
                               eventually claimed her as his wife.

                              For Christians the story of Ruth and
                               Boaz is the story of the kinsman
                               redeemer, which is a type and shadow of
                               Jesus Christ and the church.

Jewish people know the Festival of
        Weeks as Shavu’ot




They celebrate the giving of the Torah, the wheat
harvest and they eat dairy foods perhaps in
celebration of the land of milk and honey.
              My own personal speculation
              concerning Pentecost and the
                      Restoration
“[Sec 119:7a] And the Spirit saith
further: Inasmuch as there has been
much discussion in the past
concerning the Sabbath of the Lord,
the church is admonished that until
further revelation is received, or the
quorums of the church are assembled
to decide concerning the law in the
church articles and covenants,”

I feel like we are waiting at the Feast of
Weeks. Jesus rose the first day of the
week, Sunday for us. Pentacost would
always be on Sunday for us. “Even
unto the morrow after the seventh
sabbath shall ye number fifty
days;”                                       lavistachurchofchrist.org

The Jewish calendar is lunar, with each month beginning on the new
moon. The new months used to be determined by observation. When the
new moon was observed, the Sanhedrin declared the beginning of a new
month and sent out messengers to tell people when the month began.
People in distant communities could not always be notified of the new
moon (and therefore, of the first day of the month), so they did not know
the correct day to celebrate. They knew that the old month would be
either 29 or 30 days, so if they didn't get notice of the new moon, they
celebrated holidays on both possible days.

Rosh Hashanah is celebrated as two days everywhere (in Israel and
outside Israel), because it occurs on the first day of a month. Messengers
were not dispatched on the holiday, so even people in Israel did not know
whether a new moon had been observed, and everybody celebrated two
days. The practice was also maintained as a custom after the
mathematical calendar was adopted.
 What was happening to the Children of Israel at the
               Feast of Trumpets?

 I couldn’t find any specific occurance for the Children
  of Israel during the Exodus.
 This is the beginning of the civil year, when Israel blew
  the shofars.
 This is when they crowned their kings.
 It is also the start of ten days to the Day of Atonement,
  called the Days of Awe. For these ten day the people
  repent and make things right with God and their
  fellow men.
Some people believe that Jesus will come in His Glory,
        as King, on the Feast of Trumpets

 1 Thessalonians Chapter 4
 16 For the Lord himself shall
descend from heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the
archangel, and with the
trump of God; and the dead
in Christ shall rise first;
 17 Then they who are alive,
shall be caught up together
into the clouds with them
who remain, to meet the Lord
in the air; and so shall we be
ever with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one
another with these words.

How do Jewish people celebrate
  the Blowing of Trumpets?
                This day is called Rosh
                 Hashanah for the Jewish people.
                 It is the first day of the civil year.
                 This is the day they blow the
                 shofar, a ram’s horn. They bake
                 their challah bread in a ring like
                 a crown. They dip pieces of
                 apple into honey for a sweet new
                 year.
                One ritual is to walk to some
                 running water and throw
                 breadcrumbs into the water.
                 This is symbolic of getting rid of
                 sin.

What was happening to the Children of Israel
        at the Day of Atonement?

                                 The Children of Israel had
                                 made and worshipped a
                                 golden calf. Moses pleaded
                                 for them and went up on
                                 the mountain for a second

Jubilee is described in Leviticus      17 And there was delivered unto him, the
chapter 25 when all things are         book of the prophet Esaias. And when he
restored.                              had opened the book, he found the place

                                       18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
                                       because he hath anointed me to preach the
                                       gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal
                                       the broken- hearted, to preach deliverance
                                       to the captives, and the recovering of sight
                                       to the blind; to set at liberty them that are

                                       20 And he closed the book, and he gave it
                                       again to the minister, and he sat down.

21 And the eyes of all those who were in the synagogue, were fastened on him. And
he began to say unto them, This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.
22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded
out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?
23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal
thyself. Whatsoever we have heard was done in Capernaum, do also here in thy
country.
24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.
25 But I tell you the truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the
heaven was shut up three years and six months, and great famine was throughout
all the land;
26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, of Sidon, unto a
woman who was a widow.
27 And many lepers were in Israel, in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of
them were cleansed, save Naaman the Syrian.
28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with
wrath,
29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the
hill, whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.
30 But he, passing through the midst of them, went his way,
   And Jesus Christ’s reading from Isaiah which is
                 yet to be fulfilled

Isaiah Chapter 61

1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed
me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the
brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the
prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance
of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion; to give unto them beauty for
ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of
the Lord, that he might be glorified.
How do Jewish people celebrate
         Yom Kippur?
                 This is one of the most
                 important days of the year for
                 the Jewish people. They fast
                 for the entire day and look
                 into their souls, confessing
                 their sins and repenting.
                 In the days of the temple it is
                 the day that the scapegoat
                 was sent into the wilderness
                 and thrown off a cliff.
                 After Jesus read from Isaiah
                 the people tried to throw
                 Jesus off the cliff.
 The Jubilee Year was to be every 49 years and
      was to be announced on the Day of
                 Atonement.
The theme of the jubilee years is restoration.

A man named Mark Biltz has a theory that the Day of Atonement in the year
2015 is a Jubilee year.

Remembering to count Hebrew calendar years, counting back 49 years,
Jerusalem was restored to Israel on June 7, 1967.

Remembering to count Hebrew calendar years, counting back 49 years four
times, Joseph Smith Jr. had his vision in the grove sometime in the Spring of
1820.

And let them make me a sanctuary; that I
         may dwell among them
Exodus chapter 25

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering; of
 every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my
 offering.
3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver,
 and brass,
4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,
5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins and shittim wood,
6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.
8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
                   of every man that giveth it
                   willingly with his heart ye
                   shall take my offering.

             Jesus Christ
     and the Feast of Tabernacles
Mark 9
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, and
James, and John, who asked him many
questions concerning his sayings; and Jesus
leadeth them up into a high mountain apart
by themselves. And he was transfigured before
them.
2 And his raiment became shining, exceeding
white, as snow; so white as no fuller on earth
could whiten them.
3 And there appeared unto them Elias with
Moses, or in other words, John the Baptist and
Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.
4 And Peter answered and said to Jesus,
Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us
make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one
for Moses, and one for Elias; for he knew not
what to say; for they were sore afraid.
5 And there was a cloud that overshadowed
them; and a voice came out of the cloud,                  www.lostseed.com
saying, This is my beloved Son; hear him.          Transfiguration on the Mountain
                    Jesus observed all the feasts
John 7

2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

8 [Jesus speaking] Go ye up unto this feast; I go not up yet unto this feast; for
my time is not yet full come.
9 When he had said these words unto them, he continued still in Galilee.
10 But after his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast,
not openly, but as it were in secret.

14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and
taught.

37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If
any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

38 He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.
     The Feast of Tabernacles Yet to be Fulfilled
Zechariah Chapter 14

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when
he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which
is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in
the midst thereof . . .

16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations
which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to
worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of
tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the
earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon
them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain;
there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen
that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all
nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
      The Jewish people celebrate the Feast of
          Tabernacles by living in sukkahs
                                                             The Jewish people build
                                                             little temporary shelters
                                                             called sukkahs to
                                                             remember the Children of
                                                             Israel in the wilderness.
                                                             One or one and a half sides
                                                             are open. The roof is of
                                                             branches and things that
                                                             grew. They must be able to
                                                             see the stars through it.
                                                             They eat, perhaps sleep,
                                                             and generally have a good
                                                             time in it .

On the Feast of Tabernacles the Jewish
   people wave the lulav and etrog
  Leviticus 23:40
  And ye shall take you on the first day
  the boughs of goodly trees, branches
  of palm-trees, and the boughs of
  thick trees, and willows of the brook;
  and ye shall rejoice before the Lord
  your God seven days.

 An etrog looks like a big ugly lemon.
  It is the ancestor of lemons and other
  citrus fruits. It smells wonderful.
 The heart of a date palm tree
 Two willow branches
 Three myrtle branches
