    dawna marie,

    re: “Christians are not required to keep the feasts of Israel.”

    Actually, it is probably more accurate to say the “feasts of the Lord” (Leviticus 23:2).

    There are no "biblical" holidays for the church, not one is mentioned in the New Testament that the church must keep. If a person chooses to keep any day special they need to keeep it to the Lord without compelling anyone else to keep it.

    This is a case of more than one person being right. Strictly speaking, there are no biblically instituted holidays which require being observed. However, special observances are not forbidden. Jewish Christians, for example, were not forbidden from practicing their traditional holiday observances.

    Over time, we by tradition have adopted the custom of certain holiday observances: Christmas, Easter, some observe Good Friday and the Epiphany, etc etc. There's nothing that requires us to commemmorate these days, but there's nothing that forbids us from doing the same. Each church is allowed to adopts its own customs regarding such things.

    Johnv,

    re: “Strictly speaking, there are no biblically instituted holidays which require being observed."

    Read carefully the 14th chapter of Zechariah and consider these questions:

    a. What is the time setting of the prophecy? (Zechariah 14:1)

    b. Is it the time of the return of the Messiah and the establishing of His Kingdom? (Verses 3-11; compare verse 4 with Acts 1:9-12)

    c. Will the Feast of Tabernacles be observed during this time? (Zechariah 14:16-19)

    d. Will the feast be observed by Gentiles? (Verse 18)

    e. How would this make any sense if the Feast of Tabernacles had been abolished at the cross?

    We had a Passover meal at our church this year. We tried to follow exactly what a Jewish Family would have done at the time of Christ. We roasted the lamb and ate the bitter herbs. We read each of the Old Testament passages that they would have and each "toast." It was amazing for me to see.

    yes gentiles will keep the feast of tabernacles when the lord comes again the bible says zechariah 14:16 and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the king, the Lord of hosts and keep the feasts of tabernacles.


    the time seeting is when Jesus comes again

    Thanks for sharing rstrats!!!

    I dont see anything wrong about learning the feasts it was a shadow of jesus coming . Jesus fullfilled the sabbath. Jesus fullfilled the passover jesus fullfilled the feast of firstfruits, jesus fullfilled shavuot, jesus fulfilled Rosh Hashanah jesus fulfilled Yom kippur and Sukkoth we as christians need to know this many do not.
