God's Festivals Part 1: The Spring Festivals by Samuele Bacchiocchi
GOD'S FESTIVALS IN SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY challenges Christians to bring about worship renewal by developing a church calendar patterned after the religious calendar God gave to Israel. Such a calendar would celebrate during the course of the year the redemptive accomplishments of Christs first and second Advents. We cannot preach the whole Bible in one sermon. We cannot celebrate the whole story of redemption in one Sabbath. A church calendar patterned after the calendar of Israel can help to do justice to all the great saving acts of God. The first volume on THE SPRING FESTIVALS examines Passover and Pentecost historically, typologically and theologically. It shows how the Springs feasts of Israel helps us understand the redemptive accomplishments of Christ's First Advent.
