Great Rejoicing ... 8/4/2013

Festival of Booths/Tabernacles . Nehemiah . Exodus . Day of Atonement . Sunday School Lesson

The Sunday School Lesson for 8/4/2013 is shared from Nehemiah 8:13-18 (Background Scripture: Nehemiah 7:73b 'begins with the Levites' - 8:18 & Devotional Reading: Exodus 23:12-17)

Festival of Booths/Tabernacles (Sacred Year 7) (Civil Year 1) Tishri or Ephanim (September-October) One of the 3 greatest feasts/festivals, in the Jewish year: Tabernacle in the fall.


Day of Atonement held the week before the feast of Tabernacles. A fast (Acts 27:9). A day on which no work could be done. This day was called a 'high Sabbath' as well as a day of 'holy convocation.'

It lasted from the evening of the 9th Tishri till that day on the 10th. Ritual acts were performed by the high priest, of which the most important was his entering into the Holy of holies, which took place only on this day.


Nehemiah (Jehovah comforts)

Nehemiah 8-13 describes the combined efforts of Ezra & Nehemiah to effect the restoration of religion, including the solemn reading of the Law, the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, the confession of the Levites, the sealing of the covenant by the people, a list of the inhabitants of Jerusalem & of other cities, the dedication of the walls, & the removal of certain abuses.
