Three for all

The Feasts of Israel are God’s framework for salvation. Yeshua (Jesus) fulfilled the spring feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and Shavuot) at His First Coming. He will fulfill the fall feasts (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot) at His Second Coming.

But the LORD adds a twist in Deuteronomy 16:16, calling Israelite males to appear before Him on three of the seven feasts – Unleavened Bread, Shavuot and Sukkot. Why those three? My take: It’s the abridged version of God’s Master Plan. Yeshua’s resurrection occurred on Unleavened Bread, His disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit on Shavuot (Pentecost in Greek), and Sukkot represents the future millennial reign of Yeshua and His redeemed flock. The Big Three to a follower of Yeshua.

Sukkot, also called Feast of Tabernacles, is a joyful, festive Jewish observance. The Greek word for “tabernacle,” skene, means tent. Traditionally, Jewish families construct a sukkah, a small, temporary shelter in which the family gathers to share a meal. It reflects intimacy and God’s desire to join us around the campfire. Sukkot, a seven-day festival, ends at sundown Monday, Sept. 27.
