Celebrating Biblical Feasts
Have you ever read the Old Testament, and wished for a better understanding of the feasts and celebrations observed by the Israelites? For example, what was the Feast of Trumpets? What was the significance of the Day of Atonement?
Seven major festivals are covered in this book, including The Sabbath, The Passover, The Feast of First Fruits, The Feast of Pentecost, The Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and The Feast of Tabernacles. Author Martha Zimmerman has carefully researched each festival, and acted each one out with her own family. She then compiled her research and experience in this systematic guide to recreating Biblical feasts in your own home or church.
Each feast is covered in three distinct sections. First of all, the significance of the feast is described. Symbolic elements such as bread, wine, and candles are explained in detail, and scripture references pertaining to the feast are cited. Secondly, the materials needed for the observance are listed. Most of these are common items you may already have in your own home. Ingredients and recipes for meals are included. Finally, the celebration is laid out in full detail, with specific directions for the observance of the ceremony. Poems, prayers and recitations are listed in the order they are to be used, making festival re-enactment simple, even for the novice. While the observation of these festivals isn't necessary for New Testament believers, this book would shed new light on your study of the Old Testament. ~ Rachel
