Item description for The Outpouring: Jesus in the Feasts of Israel by Elwood McQuaid...
The Outpouring is in keeping with a central commitment of The Friends of Israel to view Scripture through the prism of the cultural, historical setting in which it was cast by the Holy Spirit.
John's Gospel, in its treatment of the interaction between the Messiah and Israel's great feasts, gives us a magnificent exposure to this pattern.
The Outpouring will enhance your understanding of how the Lord certified the credentials of our Jewish Messiah among Abraham's seed and in relationship to the great festive commemorations of the Jewish nation.

Jesus' Teaching - Now I Get It Jul 9, 2000
Jesus was a first-century Jew in Palestine, and spoke to the people of His day in ways THEY understood. Un-educated and scholarly alike LIVED in a culture of Picture-Festivals and Teaching Stories and from early childhood were brought up surrounded by the picture-language which God spoke through.
Jesus came and lived amongst them. He explained the pictures and prophecies, and gave miraculous signs that He was God's answer to these mysterious Divine Revelations.
Twentieth century Westerners need a Guide, steeped in Jewish Imagery, Litergy, and Culture, to put Jesus' words and actions in context. Then we can also marvel at their beauty, simplicity and power.
The author of the Outpouring explains the religious background and timing of Jesus' words and actions. He takes the festivals, (which God had commanded the Jews to "Act out" each year for over a millenium), and explains what happened when and why, and what Jesus did in response.
Too profound for the wise, but so simple and clear that a child can understand, Jesus FULFILLS the Jewish Festivals, as He promised.
THIS IS THE BOOK YOU WILL WISH YOUR SUNDAY SCHOOL OR R.E.TEACHER HAD READ ! IT IS A MUST FOR ANYONE, CHRISTIAN OR NOT, WHO WANTS TO THRILL TO THE WORDS AND DEEDS OF THE GREATEST MAN IN HUMAN HISTORY.
