On July 8 and 15, from 9:10 to 10:00 am (that is, between the 8:00 and 10:30 liturgies), St. Barnabas will present a class on Jewish Feasts and Festivals. These were established in Old Testament times to celebrate various aspects of God’s goodness to his people, and they remain in use today, sometimes with modifications. Jesus and his disciples themselves participated in the Jewish feasts and festivals, as shown by numerous references to them in the New Testament. Studying the Jewish feasts and festivals will help to develop our understanding of what Jesus meant when he said that he came, not to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. All are welcome.
