Sunday School,  June 22, 2014

The Feast of Tabernacles took place about six months after the events in John 6. This event occurred just after the fall harvest. It was a time of celebration looking back to God's protection and provision during Israel's journey from Egypt through the wilderness to the Promised Land. It also looked forward to the promised kingdom of Messiah and was one of three yearly feasts requiring all Jewish males twelve and over to attend in Jerusalem. Jesus met this requirement but did not travel with His brethren or disciples. He went secretly because of those who wanted to take His life. "I go not up yet unto this feast; for My time is not yet full come" (John 7:8). Note also John 2:4; 7:6, 8,30; 12:23, 13:1; 17:1.
