Item description for Israel's Feasts and Their Fullness by Batya Wootten...
As Believers in the Messiah, how do we celebrate the feasts? Do we simply follow the traditions of our Jewish brothers, or is there something more we need to see about Israel's appointed times?
To answer, we need to ask ourselves why we celebrate. Once we understand why so many non-Jewish Believers now feel called to honor the feasts, our answer will show us how to celebrate. The answer to "why" will inspire us as to "how." Understanding why we celebrate will also encourage us and help us to recognize why we feel as we do, and will add a rewarding sense of purpose to our celebrations.
This inspiring book addresses the feasts for the people of Messianic Israel and offers suggestions for celebration--- whether you are alone or with great numbers. It also presents these truths in light of our faith in Messiah Y'shua and in light of the role we are to play in bringing restoration to all Israel. Chapters Include: Who Is Celebrating and Why --- The Return of The Prodigal, The Purpose of Celebration --- Shabbat, Burden or Blessing --- Havdallah, The First New Covenant Meeting? --- New Moons --- Celebrating The Four Passovers --- Unleavened Bread --- The First of First Fruits and the Resurrection --- Shavuot and Two Unleavened Loaves --- Yom Teruah and The Twin Silver Trumpets --- Yom Kippur and You --- Tabernacles and Y'shua --- Tabernacles and The Great Day.

More About Batya Wootten
Batya Wootten and her husband, Angus, were early pioneers in the Messianic movement. Decades ago they began publishing the first Messianic Materials Cata-logue, created to serve a fledgling new interest in Israel and the Jewish people.
Batya read countless books about these subjects so she could write informed descriptions of them for the catalogue, and so discovered the great diversity of opinions about Israel's role in the world and about Israel's identity.
Hungering to truly know the truth of the matter, she began to cry out in desperation to her Heavenly Father, asking Him to show her His truth. As promised, He answered: "Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know" (Jeremiah 33:3). The Holy One began to open up the Scriptures to her, and His answers led to the writing of many books about Israel and its full restoration.
Batya's challenging books represent decades of study, discussion, and prayer.
Batya Ruth Wootten currently resides in Kissimmee Saint Cloud Saint Cl. Batya Ruth Wootten was born in 1943.

A Feast of a Book: An Appealing Look At the Feasts May 31, 2007
This lovely book presents a most apealing look at Yahweh's (the Lord's) feasts and gives you a desire to celebrate them. It is an interestingly written, most understandable look at these God ordained celebrations. They are a prophetic picutre of what Yahweh is doing in history.
No, they are not strickly Old Testament celebrations. All who have accepted Yahshua (Jesus) as their Savior are grafted into the vine and are Spiritual Israel. As such all the promises given by Yahweh to Abraham and the other Old Testament writers are theirs to enjoy. Also, the set apart holy days are for them to celebrate. Christmas and Easter are pagan holidays designed by Satan to get us to abondon God's chosen feasts and worship other Gods. Our Savior, the Apostles, John, Peter, Paul, etc. all kept The feasts. Yes, they were Jewish, but it was assumed that Gentile believers would be taught in the synagogues about Yahweh's Old Testament Torah (law) instructions (Acts 15:21).
Paul never told us in his letters not to keep the feasts, but rather to do so with a proper heart attitude. In Galatians 4:8-11 Paul tells Gentile believers, "When you did not know God,you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods." He then warns believers not to turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things and be enslaved to them all over again and says he fears for these people, because they observe days and months and seasons and years. In this warning, Paul may well be talking about Gentile believers in the Messsiah returning to pagan traditions. In Galatians 4:3 Paul warns about the elemental things of the world. "Things of the world" does not describe the principles of Messiah nor the Biblical feasts (Colossians 2:8).
In order to understand Colossians 2:16-17 we first need to look back to verse 8, were Paul warned, "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, acording to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Messiah." Verses 16-17 emphsises that the feasts shadow or portray our Messiah. They are a shadow of the things to come and do indeed have value. As Shadows can't be seperated from their substance, they let you know about the divine promise of all the heavenly realities about to arrive. Paul in these verses in Colossians may be warning Gentile believers no to let non blievers judge them for "honoring" the Scriptural feasts, dietary laws, Sabbath, etc.
This delightful book will inform you not only about the Biblical meaning of each of the feast, but also tell you how to observe them.
The Best Book on the Biblical Feasts. Feb 12, 2007
Mrs. Wootten's book is the best that I have read on the subject of the Biblical Feasts. The author uses Scripture to explain symbols and the feasts in detail. Part 1 covers the history of Ephraim and Judah.Two-House history. Here are some highlights from this book: *Differences in calendars relating to counting the omer. *Exposes some of the motives for switching the Sabbath with Sunday worship. *4 types of Passover. *David's fallen Tabernacle explained. *Gives some information about Jewish traditions. *The agricultural basis for some of the feasts. *She broke the Feasts into 3 groups-corresponding to the 3 areas of the Temple-and the 3 roles of Messiah.
"Israel's Feasts and Their Fullness" is complete with numerous footnotes,extensive index and a bibliography. There are also some suggestions/guides for celebrating the feasts. This is an excellent book!
