The Feast of Tabernacles is coming up, from sundown October 13 through October 20. This is the final harvest festival, and follows on the heels of the High Holy Days” of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. It was the holiday during which Jesus spoke of the Living Water that would spring from the hearts of all who believe in Him (John 7:38).
Most Jewish people refer to the holiday as Sukkot (Hebrew for booths) or Sukkos (the Yiddish version of the same word). It’s a very joyous holiday, though not one for exchanging gifts or greeting cards. Many of our missionaries will be presenting “Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles” in local churches, showing the meaning of this holiday for the past, present and future. To see if there will be a presentation near you, go to www.jewsforjesus.org/events, and use the drop down menus on the right. Whether or not we have a speaker in your area, another great way to learn more about this holiday is through David Brickner’s book, Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles, available at: www.jewsforjesus.org/cift-book.
