The final video in our High Holiday series focuses on Sukkot; The Feast of Tabernacles. Like our previous videos, we turn our focus on the divine principle God is trying to teach us through these Holidays. The sequence of the holidays is no mere accident. Sukkot succeeds Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The message of Rosh Hashanah is repentance, while Yom Kippur teaches us on forgiveness. Sukkot, following all these is about thanksgiving. God commands us to rejoice and be thankful for his provision.
Find out what the appropriate response on our behalf to God's redemption.
However, the story does not end there! God is the author and finisher of our faith. Sukkot is also the last of the three pilgrimage festivals. The Story begins at Passover, where God redeems us and returns us to him. Next comes the giving of the Torah and the Spirit at Pentecost. At Sukkot we get to embrace both these gifts and express our gratitude with the greatest sacrifice we can offer: obedience.
