Life Principles for Worship from the Feasts of Israel, by Richard Shepherd, 2011, AMG Publishers, Ages 18 and Up, ISBN-13: 978-0899573458, $14.99
In this eight-week Bible study, Life Principles for Worship from the Feasts of Israel, (Following God Discipleship series) readers examine the seven feasts of Israel as practiced in Scripture, their significance, importance and purpose. The feasts and teachings are all about Jesus! “He is the focus—Meeting with Him is the point.”
Each of the seven feasts represents a path Jesus walked, from the empty tomb, to the cross and to His promised return. The author compares the feasts to dinner table settings and writes, “If you only look at the place settings, you will walk away hungry.”
He encourages readers to look deeper, to look at Christ because “…Jesus is the Feast…” that leads readers to a closer relationship and a more intimate walk with Him.
He describes the feasts and why they follow the agricultural cycle and explains why each feast offers a “reality about God.” Lessons follow this sequential order:
- The call of the Feasts of the Lord
- The Feast of Passover
- The Feast of Unleavened Bread
- The Feast of First Fruits
- The Feast of Pentecost
- The Feast of Trumpets
- The Day of Atonement
- The Feast of Tabernacles
Feasts afforded a time of undistracted worship, celebration and joy where God’s people came away from daily routines to offer their gifts and offerings, an activity that reminded them of God’s daily provision. “Seven feasts are grouped into three segments, according to the following seasons in Israel’s calendar: Spring, summer, and fall.”
God created each of us to seek and to grow from our very first cry, to thirst for “food, attention and touch.” As we mature we seek meaning and purpose, answers to puzzling life questions. This Bible study is an excellent place to start.
