SYLLABUS  INTRODUCTION

“FEASTS”  Of  The  “LORD - Overvew "

 

Leviticus Chapter 23

 

A Syllabus of Old and New Testament Scriptures listed for each of the 7 Feasts of the Lord per Lev. 23, to provide a study of the Scriptures as related to each of the 7 Feasts Practices, Promises & Prophecies, including spiritual conotations of the Sacrificial Offerings, and both  “Feasts” and “Lord” Etymologies, with each of the Feasts representing “Solemn Appointed Times with the Lord” as “Holy Convocations”, culminating with eternity with God represented by the Feast of Tabernacles.

 Lev. 23:2, 4, 37, 44   Ge. 22:8    Ex. 12 & 23    Nu. 28 & 29    De. 16

“FEASTS”  Etymology

De 16:16   “Three times a year (spring / summer / fall) shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which He shall choose (Jerusalem), and they shall not appear before the Lord empty”.  All 3 festivals are Harvest Festivals, which include First Fruits Offerings (tithes).  Each festival period is 7 days long and known as:

Unleavened Bread   -   Feast of Weeks   -   Tabernacles.   Aka:  Passover - Shavuot  - Sukkot.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread

(includes Passover; aka Jesus’ crucifixion & First Fruits; aka Easter.   (Spring)

Feast of Weeks; aka Pentecost  (Summer)

Feast of Tabernacles (includes Feasts of Trumpets & Atonement)   (Fall)

THE FEASTS ARE TO BE CELEBRATED & REMEMBERED PROPHETICALLY

IN LIGHT & KNOWLEDGE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

===============================================================

 

BIBLICAL EDUCATION:   Home Page 

 

 ==============================================================================

7 Feasts Of The Lord  -  God’s Calendar of Redeeming Grace:

Passover; aka Good Friday – Jesus Crucifixion and forgiveness of our sins.

Unleavened Bread; aka Pursuit of Holiness / sinless nature as we trust and follow Him.

First Fruits; aka Easter – As we confess Jesus as Lord and believe in His resurrection, we are saved.

Feast of Weeks; aka Pentecost – Providing a greater degree of fellowship with God thru the gift of the Holy Spirit.

The next 3 feasts are prophetic, yet direct us to prepare our hearts for His coming return: 

Feast of Trumpets / Starts 10 Days of Repentance until

Feast of Atonement / Judgment determines worthiness to enter the Millennial Kingdom with Jesus. 

Feast of Tabernacles is a celebratory expectation of eternity with God; a permanent sabbath / dwelling / tabernacle with God forever.

===============================================================

Meanings of the original Sacrificial Offerings at Feasts:

Primary purpose: Encouragement to draw us closer to God, but can not atone for deliberate sin.  New Testament:  Mth. 5:23-24   (Go to brother for forgiveness first, then offer sacrifice)

Burnt Offerings:  Represented complete submission to God's will.   Ezek.  46:1-2, 12  See also Lev. 1:3-5 (ie. Jesus).  New Testament:  John 1:29 (Behold the Lamb Of God Who takes away sins of the world)

Peace Offering:  Expressed gratitude to God & has nothing to do with sin. Lev. 7:11-12, 15

Sin Offering:  Expressed sorrow for unintentional sin. Lev. 4:13

Trespass or Guilt Offering: Expressed atonement for a breach of trust. Lev.: 5 & 6

=======================================================================================

“LORD” Etymology

Yahweh / Jehovah               

                               Self-Existent One / "I AM THAT I AM"   Ex.3:14    Isa.44:6

Ye Shua / Yeshuah / Jesus / Joshua   (In Hebrew & English) 

                              God (Yahweh / Jehovah) is Salvation     John 8:58      

Christ                    Anointed One / Promised One / Messiah

Adonai                  Lord - Sovereign One       

Jehovah Jireh        The Lord will provide

El                          God

Elohim                 Strong One / God Most High     (In scripture over 2,500 x)

                                    See “Elohim” link.

El Shaddai            God Almighty  

El Olam                God Of Eternity, God The Everlasting / Forever  Ge. 21:33

===============================================================

“FEASTS  OF  THE  LORD”

The feasts are “Appointed times with the Lord”  Lev. 23:1   

The Feasts are God’s Calendar of Redeeming Grace. 

God's Calendar Of Redeeming Grace - "Who has ears to hear, let him hear…" Mth.13:9-17

The Study spans:  

Milk to Meat of the Word:   I Cor. 3:2,    I Peter 2:2,    Heb. 5:13-14

Broad Foundation   -   Cursory Overview   -   In Depth Perspective

Historical / Biblical Overview of Altar Sacrifice, The Tabernacle, Temple Mount and the City of Jerusalem from Abraham to Present:  Practices associated with the feasts, both at the time of the Lord and currently.

From the prophecy of Ge. 22:8:   Abrahamic Covenant that God will provide Himself a lamb, to the Law given to Moses in the Pentateuch, Through the Major and Minor Prophets, to Christ's return and the New Jerusalem in Revelation as related to the 7 Feasts of the Lord.  

This study includes a major Bible doctrine known as Eschatology, or literally, the study of the last things.  This area of biblical doctrine delves into future prophetic events in Scripture such as:  Prophecy contained in Feasts 1 - 4 were satisfied during Christ’s 1st coming:  Feasts:  Passover (Crucifixion), Unleavened Bread (sinless sacrifice), First Fruits (Easter) & Feast of Weeks (Pentecost).  

Prophecy continued in Feast 5, 6 & 7 will be completed upon the LORD's return:

Feasts: Trumpets (Start Tribulation), Atonement (Judgment Marriage Supper Guests) & Tabernacles (New Jerusalem).  

Restoration of Israel / Tribulation Period / Day of the Lord / Return of the Messiah / Millennial Kingdom / Final Judgment.

Mark 13:28-32  (Parable fig tree…  Day of The Lord (DTL) is near… this generation shall not pass away… no man knows day, hour).

Rom. 11: 16-27  Christians represented by a wild olive tree branch grafted onto the natural olive tree / natural braches (Israel) in the latter days.

Eze 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, blows not trumpet, the people be not warned; if the sword come & take any person …, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

Note Syllabus format: Scriptural references are in biblical order for Old & New Testaments for each feast. This should greatly ease locating verses as listed.

Shorter teaching time periods would require preprinting each verse. Copies of each verse can be obtained from On-line bible web sites such as:  www.blueletterbible.com .  This syllabus is the main teaching tool, accompanied by multiple handouts & videos; as referenced in the left margin of the syllabus.  Part of the objective of this study is to encourage participants to actually study the Bible from Genesis to Revelation by leading participants to look up EVERY verse and color highlight each verse for future reviews. 

=========================================================

Feasts:  aka:  Solemn Appointed Times with the Lord. Lev. 23:1-4

The Hebrew word translated "Feasts" means “Appointed Times”

Feasts and Sabbaths are called "Holy Convocations" in Scripture.  That is to say, they are intended to be times of meeting between God and man for "Holy Purposes".  According to De.16:16 God commands that we keep His Feasts and appear before the Lord with thanksgiving.

These "Holy Convocations" are a combination of celebratory commemorations of God’s providence fulfilled in the past, and the continued fulfillment of His covenant promises for the future.

“And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.”  Lev. 23:1-4

To fully understand the Feasts, one must first understand the full meaning and implications of the Sabbath as a time of oneness with God. 

Celebrating the Sabbath (1-day; 24 hours – Saturday sundown to Sunday at sundown).  The Sabbath is only a foreshadowing toward the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan exemplified in His 7 Feasts. 

God commands that we keep each and every sabbath & feast day holy (in light of the New Testament); aka "Holy Convocations"; that is, they are intended to be times of meeting between God and man for "Holy Purposes" in preparation of an eternity of dwelling with Him!  "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it HOLY.  Exodus 20:8-11  (4th Commandment)

The Feast of Tabernacles becomes the ultimate completeness of meeting with God; to “tabernacle” / dwell with God for eternity.

"If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on My holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob." The mouth of the Lord has spoken.  Isaiah 58:13-14 

 
 

FEASTS  OF  THE  LORD  -  Lev.  23

COURSE  INTRODUCTION

Syllabus files provided, are a list of all Scriptures from Gen. to Rev. pertaining to the 7 Feasts Of The Lord per Lev 23.  They are presented from a Prophetic, Historical & Eschatological view, listed by Old & New Testament. They may be used for Sermons, Bible Study Groups or Individual Study.  Syllabus files listed in the left column on the web site.  Additional handout supportive course materials for each feast are listed in the left columns.

The study format will progress from an initial overview, identifying the 7 feasts and chronologies.  Next examining the actual feasts with their associated practices, and how they demonstrate God’s covenant, both in the past and relevant to today.  Then we progress to a deeper study of the promises and prophecies from scriptures associated with these feasts - from Genesis to Revelation.  Along the way, we will note those prophesies associated with each feast that were fulfilled, and / or mentioned in New Testament scriptures.  Correspondingly, we will also study those scriptures  (promises)  yet to be fulfilled.


An initial introduction to the “7 Feasts Of The Lord”
is presented with insights such as: Elohim, One of the Names describing God; a Historical Overview, an Overview of the Feasts, how Jesus is represented in the Feasts, and the Feasts’ Prophetic Hermeneutics. 


The first four feasts
Syllabus files of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits & the Feast of Weeks are also supported with additional insights such as: the Passover Seder, a discussion on the Gifts of the Spirit and more. 

The Feasts of the Lord are God's Calendar Of Redeeming Grace

The Hebrew word translated "Feasts" means "Appointed Times", as proven by Jesus:

Fulfilling prophetic foreshadowings of the first four feasts in His:

I.e. His Sacrificial death, Sinless nature, resurrection and gift of His Holy Spirit.


Study of the last 3 feasts
apply a Bible doctrine of "Eschatology" or "study of the last things":   

  -  Starting at the Feast of Trumpets with the "Days Of Awe" (Repentance).

  -  Including the last (7th) sabbatical year of 7 years to initiate the Tribulation period.   

  -  Culminating with the Feast of Atonement. 

  -  Followed immediately by Jubilee to initiate the Millennial Kingdom.

The Feasts are God's Calendar of Redeeming Grace.

As a Watchman  …..   (Ezek. 33:3-9)

Prepare Ye the Way Of The Lord …..   (Mark 1:3)

Repent for the Day Of the Lord and His Vengeance is near.


Know the parable of the fig tree... the Day of the Lord is near... this generation shall not pass away until all things come to pass.... but no man knows the day or hour.   Mark 13:28-32,   Mth. 25,   Luke 21:22-32  (paraphrased).  "Who has ears to hear, let him hear..."  Mth. 13:9-17


Course Objective:
  To simplify & interconnect a vast matrix of related scriptures associated with God’s redemptive covenant, in the format God provided in HIS Feasts as outlined in Leviticus 23.  Consequently, reinforcing our faith by redemptive promises fulfilled in the first 4 feasts, and preparing our hearts in light of the promises yet to be fulfilled in the latter 3 feasts.  See Eschatology Introduction”. 

This course material is
NOT a suggestion to reinstitute the literal practices of the feasts.

Jesus provided Himself as the sacrificial lamb for the forgiveness of our sins.  However, just as
the first four feasts  were prophetic foreshadowing events to Jesus first coming,  so too are the last three feasts related to His prophetic return and completion of His covenant with mankind.


Much like a good book, that requires reading many chapters to build a foundation before the author starts to reveal the interlocking mystery of his drama (i.e. Ep. 2:19-22), so also is the format of this study. It will progress from a basic understanding of the facts, to an amazing matrix of God’s promises; laid-out before us from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 – all in these 7 Feasts Of The Lord! 
The feasts are essentially the foundation from which ALL of scripture is developed; that is to say, the feasts outline God’s complete redemptive plan. 


These Feasts encompass complete biblical history
, from the Abrahamic Covenant (Ge. 22: 8) promise of  “God Himself will provide a lamb” to the “New Jerusalem where there is no temple, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple” Rev. 21:22.


Primary Course Material
 is a Syllabus of scriptural references related to each Feast. 

The syllabus is divided by Old & New Testament.  (Syllabus files are in ALL CAPS in list of files)

All scriptural references are in biblical order (Gen. to Rev.).

Additional handout supportive course materials are listed in the left column with NO caps.


To be taught or studied in one of three ways:

  -  Quick Overview of the 7 Feasts of the Lord. 

  -  More in-depth view 

  -  Long-term in-depth study.

  -  The depth of study and duration can span anywhere from 1 day to easily over a year.


I suggest all supporting handout files be printed-out, as needed, from  http://www.feastsofthelord.net  then assembled in order; as listed in the  left column on the web site. These files in the left column (NOT in caps) of the Syllabus are “Handout” supporting files for each feast.


Purchase Videos from referenced vendors or others as desired (Approximately $20 each).   See “Video Library”.  Note: individual scenes can be selected from most DVD videos for classroom presentation as applicable to the study in progress.

Print out selected files for students as desired.


To enhance participants ease of locating scriptures - all scripture references are listed in biblical order for each feast:  ie. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus etc. to Revelation.

Prepare to teach each class by color highlighting the verses in your bible, as listed in the syllabus file, and for the verses listed in the “Handouts”.  Encourage class participants to also color highlight all referenced verses for ease of review at a later time.


“For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.  Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world?  Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”   I Cor. 1: 17-20


Multiple videos, supplemental handouts and photos can be used to enhance your feel for the times, places and festival events at the time of Jesus.  A field trip to the Holy Land Experience, Orlando, Fl. would also compliment the study, for those interested.


Tip: Bring a Bible with tabs for the individual books of the Bible to enable quick and easy referencing, two color markers and a three ring binder for the multitude of handouts.


“May the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable to You O Lord, our God and our Redeemer. Because faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes from the word of God, and His Word does not return void… then it is the objective of this study - not to ever increase in knowledge, and yet fail to come to the knowledge of the truth - but rather to be restored in the spirit of our minds, to set our spirit free that we may worship Thee, in order that we might apply our hearts unto wisdom; that is first pure than peaceable, guiding us on how to cast down every evil imagination that exalts it’s self against God, and to bring every thought into obedience to Your will - that we as a body of individual believers might be built upon the foundation of the apostles, Jesus the Messiah; the chief cornerstone,  as a building tightly framed together,  to become the holy habitation of God in the spirit – with the word of God becoming a light unto our feet and a light unto our path.” Glory in His Holy Name.
Psm. 19:14  Rom. 10:17, Isa. 55:11,  2 Tim. 3:7, James 3:17, 2 Cor. 10:5, Eph. 2:20-22, Psm. 119:105.


Please observe, that just as all the words of this prayer are scripture,
it is God’s word that does not return void Isa. 55:11, NOT our words!  It is my desire to let God’s words do the talking during this study.  My (your) work is to point out the related scriptures for your contemplation and growth in knowledge of God’ redemptive plan for us.  By the grace of God loving preparation time has been expended to develop these study files for your use, and to be a blessing to others.  My prayer is that they support your work, in spirit and in truth to the glory of the Lord Jesus, the Alpha and Omega.  I will also provide any assistance possible that you may request.  Feedback appreciated.  And please do share these files as a  gift of love to as many as possible, by email or printed format.
