May 31: Shavuot (Pentecost)

Many generations passed since God had given Abraham that promise.  Finally Moses brought Israel into the Promised Land.  The taking of the land was not easy and despite God’s command to rid it of the former inhabitants many still remained.

May 30: Shavuot (Pentecost)

As we praise God for His unique creation of the One New Man, we also remember the Apostle Paul’s admonition and exhortation to the Gentiles.

May 27: Shavuot (Pentecost)

When God broke down the wall of division between Jews and Gentiles, He never obliterated or changed the distinctives of the people.  Jews never became non-Jews (Gentiles) nor did Gentiles ever become Jews.  Neither did men become women or women become men.  We are different but equal.

May 26: Shavuot (Pentecost)

Despite God’s unique relationship with Israel, His goal was to create a single Kingdom community consisting of both Jews and Gentiles. 

May 25: Shavuot (Pentecost)

The sacrifice of Yeshua ended the separation between Jews and Gentiles and created “One New Man.” 

May 23: Shavuot (Pentecost)

Today many have lost the original context of the holiday.  Shavuot is the celebration of the harvest of wheat.  Wheat in the Bible is often used as a symbol of evangelism.

May 20: Shavuot (Pentecost)

Jewish tradition says God gave Israel the Law on Shavuot but there is no biblical proof for this most important event in Israel’s history.  Religious Jews stay up all night reading the Torah so that they will be ready to welcome the Torah at sunrise the next day! 

May 18: Shavuot (Pentecost)

Shavuot was the second pilgrim festival when Jewish men were required to bring the firstfruits of the harvest to the Temple in Jerusalem.
