Celebrating Biblical Feasts - Book Review


In the Old Testament, we find that God ordained special days of feasting and celebrating for the Israelites. These were days for the people to come together for rest and refreshment and to glorify Him.

In reading through Exodus and Deuteronomy we learn that by observing these special days, the Israelites would never forget how God had provided for them in the dessert and continued to provide with bountiful harvests after He delivered them from slavery. They were reminded, with each celebration, that they were to leave their old ways of life behind and live a new life with Him. With every celebration they renewed their commitment and trust in the Almighty God. In studying the New Testament, we find Jesus also observed these God ordained holidays.

As Christians in our modern world, I think that we would do well in observing some of these traditional Jewish celebrations, renewing our commitment and giving glory to God for His deliverance and care.

Thatís why I found the book "Celebrating Biblical Feasts" by Martha Zimmerman, intriguing.

In her book, Ms Zimmerman shows the significance of the ancient feasts from a New Testament perspective. She includes step-by-step guides for the celebration of seven feasts ordained in the Old Testament.

  • The Sabbath
  • The Passover
  • The Omer
  • Shavuoth
  • Rosh Hashanah
  • Yom Kippur
  • Sukkoth

Included are recipes for traditional Jewish dishes that give an authentic flavor to the celebration and fun activities for family members bringing home the deeper meaning and the reason for celebration.

The book "Celebrating Biblical Feasts" is an effective teaching tool for Biblical truths, more than simply a Sunday school lesson, but as a way of life in the home. In observing these celebrations we can give God the glory He deserves and perhaps we will remember to look forward to one more glorious feast that is yet to come --
described in Revelation 19:6-9..."Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!"
