Jesus Honors Himself at the Feasts

After the sermon series on the worship service and the offerings in Leviticus Chapter 9, a series on Israel’s Feasts is a fitting follow-up. The basis will be Leviticus Chapter 23, where all Seven Feasts are introduced into a Festal Calendar.

Of course, these Feasts are also found all over the New Testament, particularly in the Four Gospels, where Jesus is found celebrating the feasts—as God has required of all Jews—as he fulfills all the Law. So I have named this series “Jesus Honors Himself at the Feasts.”

Join us every Lord’s Day, as we meet and celebrate Jesus at the Feasts!
