Item description for Christ in the Feast of Pentecost by Rich Robinson & David Brickner...
Overview The Feast of Pentecost (Shavuot in Hebrew) is one of the three major festivals of Israel. This book rounds out the series so that all three Aliyah Festivals are covered in this series by Moody Publishers (Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles and Christ in the Passover being the first of two books). Studying the Feast of Pentecost helps us understand such New Testament references as "First Fruits" and the biblical view of Pentecost in the book of Acts. Much of what happened as recorded in the book of Acts has either direct or indirect reference to the biblical festival of Pentecost.
This engrossing book will quickly capture your attention as you realize the excitement leading up to this festive occasion and the richness it will bring to your understanding of both the Old and New Testament references. The authors treat us to the sense of anticipation that "cannot be overstated" as their insightful account of traditions leading up to this holiday unfolds...a boy's first haircut, bonfires, sweet treats, artful paper cutting, firstfruits. "Shavnot "will lead believers in Jesus into greater understanding of the significance of the "omer," the waiting period, which foreshadows our watching for His return and gives further meaning to our work of building His kingdom.
