Sukkot/Tabernacles

Sukkot/Tabernacles during this week that our Messiah was born. Not that pagan day in Dec.

sukkot5And the LORD said to Moses, 

“Say to the people of Israel, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the feast of booths to the LORD. On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. Seven days you shall present offerings by fire to the LORD; on the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is a solemn assembly; you shall do no laborious work. Lev. 23:33-36

“You shall keep the feast of booths seven days, when you make your ingathering from your threshing floor and your wine press;  14 you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your manservant and your maidservant, the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your towns.  15 For seven days you shall keep the feast to the LORD your God at the place which the LORD will choose; because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful. Deut. 16:13-15

For those of you how need the prof that this is Messiah’s Birthday here is a wonderful post not our own, On What Day Was Jesus Born?  (Why should we repeat the research when this guy did such a good job.) Our only problem is that he narrows it down to one day, which we feel is pushing the evidence just a bit.
