God's Appointed Feasts for Fall 2013

"The Feasts are not 'Jewish' in an ethnic sense, nor are they 'Christian' in a religious sense. Instead, the feasts are 'divine' in a Biblical sense. That’s what makes 'The feasts of the Lord' (Lev 23:41) eternal and universal."

Jesus celebrated the feasts, and Paul celebrated the feasts 30 years after Jesus’ resurrection. (Luke 2:41; 22:15-16; Jn 2:13; 5:1; Acts 18:21; 20:16; I Cor 16:8)

Paul told the Corinthian believers, who were not ethnic Jews, to celebrate the feasts. This was written a quarter of a century after Jesus was resurrected!

I Corinthians 5:7-8 …Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast… NASB
