The Feasts of the Lord
  • God commanded His people the Jews to keep the
    Sabbath, the Sabbatical and Jubilee times of rest
    and restoration.

The weekly Sabbath - Shabbat or day of
restThe 4th commandment to rest one day a week
, keep it holy and honour God. It was a sign
of the covenant between God and His people.
(Exodus 3113,17)
  • It was intended as a gift from God, a day of joy,
    freedom from work and worldly concerns and a time
    of spiritual enrichment.
  • There are similarities with communion sharing
    wine and bread together with the lighting of
  • ( to be a light in the world)

The Sabbatical and Jubilee restoration, social
justice and good environmental practice.

    rest or lie fallow, debts were to be cancelled
    and slaves freed.
  • The Book of the Law was read to all Israel.

Passover- Pesach The Passover celebration
commemorates the time when the Jewish people were
delivered from slavery in Egypt.
  • They put blood on the lintels of their doors and
    as the angel of death passed over, their first
    born escaped the fate of the Egyptians.

Passover (Leviticus 235) Points to the
Messiah as our Passover lamb, whose blood would
be shed for our sins. (1 Corinthians 57)
  • Jesus was crucified on the day of preparation for
    the Passover, at the same time that the lambs
    were being slaughtered for the Passover meal that

The Passover LambThe paschal lamb had the
name of the owner hung on a sign around its neck.
Pilate had a sign put on the cross. The writing
was Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.
  • The Hebrew letters for this were the
    Tetragrammaton, YHWH, showing Jesus was God
    Himself! This is why the priests asked Pilate to
    change it, but Pilate refused. (John 1919-22)

The traditional Passover meal
  • The story is told (Haggadah) with questions from
    the children.
  • 4 cups of wine are taken during the family meal,
  • deliverance from slavery in Egypt
  • redemption by the blood (of Jesus)
  • being a chosen people
  • having a land of their own.

The Passover Meal the Sedar Plate
The Sedar Meal symbolism
  • Salt water tears of sorrow and pain during
  • Green vegetables life in the wilderness
  • e.g. parsley or lettuce
  • Bitter herbs - suffering as slaves
  • e.g. horse radish
  • Charoset (sweet) freedom from bondage
  • e.g. fruit, nuts spices
  • Shank bone of lamb reminder of the paschal lamb
    slain. (Jesus)
  • Roast egg new life

The Passover- Matzah symbolism
  • The matzah is broken into 3 pieces which are
    placed in a
  • Matzah tash - a special cloth holder with three
    sections, one for each piece of matza . This
    symbolises the unity of God God the Father, God
    the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • The leader takes the middle sheet of matzah and
    lifts it for everyone to see and breaks it in
    two. This symbolizes Christs body broken on the
  • Afikoman - a piece of matza wrapped in a linen
    cloth and hidden somewhere in the house for the
    children to find. This symbolises Christ body
    laid in the tomb. (Matt. 2759-60).

Unleaven BreadBread without yeast was eaten as
the Israelites were in a hurry to leave Egypt.
They were told to remove yeast (leaven), a sign
of sin from their houses.
  • The lines and holes in the Matzah remind us of
    the stripes on Jesus back and his pierced hands
    and feet, through which we are healed.

First Fruits (Leviticus 2310)
  • - points to the Messiah's resurrection as the
    first fruits of the righteous.
  • Jesus was resurrected on this very day,
  • which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to
    him in as the
  • "first fruits from the dead.
  • (I Corinthians 1520)

Jesus and the Sign of JonahOn the third day He
rose again!
  • Jesus was crucified and buried on the day of
    Preparation for the Feast of Un-leaven Bread.
  • He arose before dawn on the Sunday, as the
    Firstfruit, the first day of the week and
    appeared to the women.

The Unique Events of Good Friday
  • There was an earthquake and sun was darkened for
    3 hours from 12 noon to 3 pm as Jesus died on the
  • A blood red moon appeared after sunset to fulfil
    the prophecy of Joel 228-32, foreshadowing end
    time events.
  • From historical and astronomical evidence it is
    likely that this was Friday 1st April 33 AD when
    there was lunar eclipse visible from Jerusalem.

Weeks Shavuot Pentecost
  • After the temple was destroyed it was difficult

    brought a change of focus to the feast from an
    agricultural one to Moses receiving the Law. (Ten

Weeks or Pentecost ( Leviticus 2316, Acts
2). Occurred fifty days after the beginning of
the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Church was

It points to the Rapture of the Church when

Tabernacles or Booths (Leviticus 2334)

Tabernacles Succot Water is drawn from
the spring at Siloam and poured out as a water
