The Messiah Of Tabernacles

It is no coincidence or irony that Jesus Christ observed the Christian Feast of Tabernacles (see Feast Of Tabernacles: Heaven Comes To Earth). The Messiah Himself established all of His genuine Holy Days (see the Fact Finder question below) in the time of Moses (see 'Before Abraham Was, I AM' and 'The God Of The Old Testament'; also The Trysting Tent).

After Christ's return, everyone on earth will be observing the Feast of Tabernacles (listen also to our Sermon The Feast Of Tabernacles: Our Tent In Heaven).

"14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles." (Zechariah 14:16-19 KJV)

"Go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles"

The Messiah's observance of the Feast of Tabernacles was amidst, for the most part, those of His nation who didn't yet realize that He was indeed the Messiah. Even His own siblings (see Why Did Jesus Have Brothers and Sisters?) did not yet understand.

The Holy Scriptures

"7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him [Note: keep in mind that Jesus of Nazareth was a Jew too; nearly all of the first Christians were Jews, and most of the New Testament was written by Jews e.g. see Was Paul Among Them?]. 7:2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand. 7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. 7:4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, show thyself to the world. 7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. 7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. 7:8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come. 7:9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

7:10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. 7:11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

7:12 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. 7:13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews." (John 7:1-13 KJV)

Jesus not only observed the Feast of Tabernacles, He taught at the Feast of Tabernacles.

"7:14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 7:18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 7:19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

7:20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

7:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers; and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 7:23 If a man on the sabbath day receive Circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." (John 7:14-24 KJV)
