It’s impossible to recognize all the nuances of the New Testament writings without understanding the Jewish feasts. Consider especially the Gospel of John: It goes from one Biblical feast to the next with barely a let-up. This is one of John’s primary literary devices, where the festival celebrations provide a meaningful backdrop for Jesus’ lessons. Let me give you an example from Booker’s book, in his coverage of the Feast of Tabernacles:

As part of the ritual proceeding, a certain priest would

An excellent, intuitive book which discusses the major Old Testament feasts acccording to their historical backgrounds, and draws out the principles within them that point to and are fulfilled by Christ in the New Covenant. This book is truly one-of-its kind; when searching for resources on the connection between Old Covenant feasts and Jesus, this was the only quality published resource I could find (at the time) which did just that. I highly recommend this book which will illuminate understand ...more

The seven feasts of the Lord are so gloriously-prophetic as expounded in this book (see Leviticus 23 of the Bible for all seven feasts). When Jesus came the first time to pay the price for our sins, He prophetically fulfilled all of the four spring feasts on the actual day that Jews historically celebrate the spring feasts. It's pretty safe to assume that he'll fulfill the remaining three fall feasts at His second coming on the actual day that Jews have historically celebrated the fall feasts. I ...more

This is a terrific book. I've been studying some Jewish culture and wanted to know more about the Biblical feasts because Christianity is so anchored in Jewish heritage. This book really helped me understand the background and application for today. We as Christians need to remember that an understanding of ancient Jewish history can really help us understand the God we love better and our Messiah. Yeshua was Jewish after all and spoke to Jews in terms they would understand.

We have started celeb

Interesting book. I've read about the Feasts in the Old Testament and knew somewhat how they connected to the New Testament - but this book further explains how Jesus fulfilled the feasts.

We studied this is a small group from church. It was very enlightening and well received.

Unfortunatley it took me 7 months to finish this book. The reasoning is because it was started as a Sunday school lesson but was abandoned when the teacher moved on to something else. It was all quite interesting but as I came into the class after this was started I missed some things. Still, I did go back and read what I missed. This was all completely new to me. The thing I got out of it most was how closely we should embrace our Jewish friends and their traditions. These feasts are the roots ...more

I liked learning about the history of the feasts and the rabbinical traditions that go into them; however, only a few of the things he tried to tie together with Jesus seemed far-fetched.

This book filled in a lot of gaps,and explained things in a way that I can't begin to express. I recommend this book as required reading for anyone who's seeking knowledge on the Jewish roots of Christianity.

I am really enjoying this book I picked up a long time ago but just decided to start reading this Passover season. It talks about the biblical feasts still celebrated by Jews from a Christian perspective. The author seems to have done his homework in historical terms.

So much information that shows just how perfect God's timing. It shows how the whole old testament points to The coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
