In this PODCAST, a new chapter has dawned in our ongoing chronological study of the life and ministry of Jesus.
Jesus has just left His beloved Galilee for the last time. He will not return to Galilee until after the Resurrection. A point not to be missed, Jesus left Galilee now in order to be in Jerusalem for the annual Feast of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles.
OK, so here’s my question:
Why in the world did Jesus literally risk an early arrest and possible untimely death in order to be in Jerusalem for this feast?
He surely knew the risks involved. He told His brothers bluntly,
The world hates me… You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.
Yet, He changed His mind and actually went to the Feast, though secretly so as not to be seen.
So again I ask,
Why now? Why this festival? What was so special about the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) that Jesus risked everything to travel to Jerusalem secretly?
In answering this question, you will see a side of Jesus’ humanness that will endear you to Him in ways you never knew possible. I guaranteed you that this will be well-worth your taking the time to listen! You will find Jesus endearing to your heart and soul in ways you never imagined.
