This book is written for all believers who enjoy exploring the Word of God, embracing new insights, and experiencing more of our Redeemer as prophesied by the festivals of the Old Testament. Have you ever wondered about all those feasts and fasts of the Bible? Are they still valid for today’s Christian? How do we celebrate them? If any of these questions have been yours, this is the handbook for you.
With an extensive background in both Christian and Jewish study, Dr. Betham-Lang takes you through a discovery of Jewish holidays, igniting a passionate understanding of how Judaism and Christianity are more closely related that you might imagine. After all, she writes, “Christianity is the child of Judaism.”
Thus, an accurate understanding of Christianity relies upon one’s understanding of the Semitic culture and Jewish theology of the Church’s foundations. This includes, to a very great extent, these holidays of the Bible. Often ignored in Christian circles, these holidays are unwrapped gifts free for the taking. They compliment and enhance the Christian interpretation and understanding of the world’s Redeemer.
This valuable resource observes both the Old and New Testaments in celebrating God’s love. Inspiring an appreciation for the deep roots of Christianity in the tradition of a Jewish Savior, Dr. Betham-Lang explains both the ancient and modern traditions of the biblical and Jewish holidays while providing recipes for observing the feasts deliciously. Imagine if a special holiday (as meaningful as Christmas to the Christian) came at different times during the year with a new and exciting focus each time?
The invition doesn’t stop with the ancient biblical community, for God has made these divine appointments with believers of all ages. This includes you! Don’t waste another day. Learn with the whole family how to spend these special days with God in deep, rich, and meaningful (and often downright fun) ways. If you are seeking a resource with which to explore your own heritage and understand the joyous impact of biblical Judaism on Christian living, look no further than LIVE Your Festive Heritage by Dr. Jen Marik Betham-Lang.
