The Feast of Tents
A study of Old Testament feasts and a look in John 7.
The Feast of Tabernacles was the seventh of the annual celebrations which the Lord commanded Israel to keep. It was also the most joyful. It came like a week's vacation, when the people lived in little shelters, made of grass or branches, with sacrifices every day.
This event became more important to us when the Lord Jesus went to Jerusalem with many of the people. In the middle of the week he began to teach, saying that God sent Him. But on the last day He made a grand promise any one could come to Him for satisfaction, and any believer could be a great channel of blessing.
In this booklet, the author shows the importance of the feast in the Old Testament, and in John 7. He hopes that it will be a blessing to many, and make them a blessing to others.
