Understand the Festivals Volume 4 contains four teachings. The first teaching is the last teaching in the series on the festival of Pentecost (Shavuot). It will explain from the Midrash Rabbah on Numbers 5:12-31 (a wife suspected of adultery) how the rabbis associate the adulterous wife to the nation of Israel. The teaching will also explain that the ‘church’ (the House of Jacob) was born at mount Sinai and was reborn in Acts 2. It will explain how the original covenant at mount Sinai was a Torah based covenant and the reNEWed covenant is a Torah based covenant. The difference is that the original covenant is the Torah written upon a heart of stone and the reNEWed covenant is the Torah written upon a heart of flesh. The last three teachings are on the Festival of Trumpets (Yom Teruah / Rosh HaShanah). The first lesson discusses the twelve steps in the ancient Biblical wedding and how this teaches us about our marriage to Yeshua the Messiah. The last teachings on the Festival of Trumpets examines in detail the various themes of Yom Teruah including: Teshuvah, Rosh HaShanah (head of the year), Yom Teruah (the day of the awakening blast), Yom HaDin (the day of judgment), Yom HaZikkaron (the day of remembrance), HaMelech (the coronation day), Yamim Nora’im (the days of awe), Yom HaKiseh (the hidden day), the opening of the gates of heaven, the last trump and the resurrection of the dead.
