Rosh Hashanah

Today is the celebration of the Jewish Feast, Rosh Hashanah.  It started last night and goes on for two days.  If we can grasp Jewish culture better, then we can know our Jewish Savior better.  These feasts were set in place by God for the Israelites to participate in.  While we are under the new covenant, we can still glean so much of God's ways and our own futures if we will be mindful of them!  There are seven total feasts...four in the spring and three in the fall.  The spring feasts have been "fulfilled" in that Jesus has accomplished and brought about the purpose of those feasts.  I always get excited when September rolls around, because it ushers in the fall feasts, which are all only 15 days apart from one another.  I know they point to things that Jesus will fulfill as well!
