In this teaching we are reviewing the Biblical holiday system that God established in Leviticus 23. Often referred to as God's Appointed Feasts.
We are going to take a closer look at an aspect of the 4th holiday - Feast of Weeks. In Hebrew the holiday is called Shavuot which is the Hebrew word for 'weeks.' God says in Leviticus 23:
"you are to count off seven full weeks" Lev. 23:15
The very next sentence then says:
"You shall count off fifty days until the day after the seventh Sabbath" Lev. 23:26
"Fifty days" in Greek is Pentecost.
Many Christians believe that Pentecost is only a Christian holiday because we find the Greek translation in Acts 2. Not true. The holiday was started with Moses and continues on till today in Jewish synagogues around the world under the Hebrew name Shavuot.
The Jewish custom is to celebrate God delivering his Torah to Moses on Mt. Sinai on Shavuot.
Today's teaching will compare Moses and God's Torah with Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
