Jewish High Holiday Presentations
Our High Holiday presentations explain how these Jewish events point to the Messiah, Jesus.
The Gospel in the Feasts of the Lord
The Apostle Paul said that ‘the Law was our guardian to lead us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith (Galatians 3:24). The Gospel in the Feasts of the Lord demonstrates how the Jewish feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot point to the Messiah. Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) teaches us about our need for repentance. Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) points to the forgiveness of sin through faith in the Messiah, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles/Booths) reminds us to rejoice in the presence of the Lord. This presentation is typically booked for the months of September and October.
The Gospel in the Festival of Hanukkah
The Feast of Hanukkah (Dedication) dates back to approximately 150 years before the birth of the Messiah and is mentioned in the Gospel of John (John 10:22-23). It celebrates the rededication of the Temple, and God’s faithful preservation of the Jewish people in preparation for the entrance of the Messiah. This presentation is typically booked for the months of November and December.
The Gospel in the Feast of Purim
The Feast of Purim as described in the Book of Esther tells a poignant story of God’s faithfulness, steadfast love and sovereignty throughout history even as he orchestrates events from “behind the scenes.” Find out why Purim is observed by the Jewish people and be enriched by the lessons we can learn from this Jewish Feast. This presentation is typically booked for the months of February and March.
The Gospel in the Feast of Pentecost
Did you know that Pentecost is a Jewish Holiday? Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks or ‘Pentecost’ as it is called in the New Testament, is a late spring holiday in the Jewish Calendar which is rich with meaning and significance. While most Christians know of the powerful events of Pentecost in Acts 2, few are aware of the historical yearly observance that pointed toward it. This presentation helps Christians make the connection between the biblical Festival of Shavuot with its ultimate fulfillment in the New Testament. This presentation is typically booked for the months of May and June.
