What Did Jesus Christ Teach At Tabernacles?

Jesus Christ observed the Christian Feast of Tabernacles because Jesus Christ Himself established (as He did with all of His true Holy Days) it in the time of Moses (see the Fact Finder question below). After Christ's return, everyone on earth will be observing the Christian Feast of Tabernacles (see The Tabernacles Celebration After The Fall Of Babylon and Moriah: Separating The Wheat From The Chaff).

"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)

"About the midst of the Feast Jesus went up into the Temple and taught"

The Messiah's observance of the Feast of Tabernacles was amidst those who didn't yet realize that He was indeed the Messiah (see the Fact Finder question below). Even His own brothers (see Mary's Other Children) did not yet see (they didn't do so until after He was crucified).

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. 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)

The Messiah 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)

This Day In History, October 19

526 BC: Ahmose II, general, king of Egypt, member of the 26th dynasty, died. He seized the throne during a revolt against King Apries.

202 BC: the Battle of Zama during the Second Punic War; Roman legions under the command of Scipio Africanus defeated Hannibal Barca, leader of the invading Carthaginian army.

439: The Vandals, led by King Gaiseric, took Carthage in north Africa.

1216: King John of England died at age 50. After being interdicted by Pope Innocent III, he surrendered England to the pope so that the national excommunication would be repealed. Innocent then gave England back to John in 1213 as a fief of the Roman Catholic Church. King John became the subject of one of William Shakespeare's plays. He was succeeded by his 9 year old son Henry.

1466: The Peace of Torun ended the war between the Teutonic Knights and their own disaffected subjects in Prussia (not to be confused with Russia; Prussia is in Germany).

1469: Ferdinand II of Aragon married Isabella I of Castile. The Spanish monarchs are best-known to history as the sponsors of Christopher Columbus.

1739: England declared war on Spain over a borderline dispute in Florida. The war became known as the War of Jenkin's Ear because Spanish coast guards cut off the ear of British seaman Robert Jenkins.

1812: Napoleon began his retreat from Moscow.

1818: In the years following the War of 1812-12 (declared by U.S. President James Madison with the stated purpose to annex Canada), a treaty was signed by Canada and the U.S. to set the international border, west of the Great Lakes, at "the 49th parallel" (i.e. the latitude of 49 degrees north). That treaty, along with the already-established-by-war border east of the Great Lakes created the present-day boundary that has not been militarily-violated by either nation in nearly 200 years.

1827: During the Greek War of Independence, the Turkish and Egyptian fleets were destroyed by the British, French and Russians at the Battle of Navarino.

1935: The League of Nations imposed sanctions against Italy following its invasion of Ethiopia.

1949: The communist People's Republic of China was formally proclaimed.

1950: The North Korean capital of Pyongyang was captured by U.N. troops.

1954: Britain and Egypt agreed to transfer control of the Suez Canal after more than 70 years of British control.

1970: British Petroleum made the first major oil find in the British sector of the North Sea.

1973: US President Richard Nixon rejected an Appeals Court demand to turn over the Watergate tapes.

2005: Amidst the over 200,000 Iraqi civilians killed (some independent estimates state that the human carnage was much higher) by the non-existent "weapons of mass destruction" invasion ordered by George W. Bush, Saddam Hussein went on trial in the destroyed city of Baghdad for "crimes against humanity." Saddam Hussein was found guilty and hung for his war crimes.

2005: Hurricane Wilma becomes the most intense Atlantic hurricane on record.
