Messiah in the Feasts (Zoom Course)



3 Academic Credit Hours (February 27 – May 8, 2023) – this course has already started

Messiah in the Feasts

Course will be held via Zoom on Mondays , 4 – 7 PM Israel Time




Course Description

The Feasts of Israel provide a unique way for God to communicate with His people. Leviticus 23 is God’s “year at a glance” calendar as we learn of His plan for Israel and the Nations. The festivals reveal God’s holiness, His character, and His desire for all people to come to know Him. This ten week course will focus on the feasts of ancient Israel, but will also include later festivals from both scripture and tradition, ending with a class on the holidays of modern Israel.


The festivals are not only fun, they enhance our understanding of our Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus) who celebrated and / or fulfilled the feasts. He is our Passover lamb, the Firstfruits from the dead, and so much more! The festivals also serve as a prophetic timeclock, revealing truths about the future. This course is for all believers in Jesus who want to deepen their understanding of scripture and their relationship with God.
