Throughout the Old Testament, God commanded the children of Israel to observe his holy days (holidays) to remember the mighty things that he had done in the lives of Israel's forefathers. The Feasts of the Bible pamphlet celebrates and explains the meaning behind the different feasts and why they are important to God. Feasts of the Bible contains an easy-to-read chart that provides each holiday's name, explanation, date of observance, and symbolic meaning pointing to Jesus as the promised Messiah.

Why should you learn about the Hebrew roots of Christianity?
As a Jew, Jesus celebrated these feasts and holidays each year. The pamphlet is an excellent tool to learn about the Jewish roots of Christianity and to discover Yeshua, "Jesus," in each "holy day." The pamphlet shows the Hebrew name, spelling, pronunciation, symbolism of Jesus, Bible references, and New Testament fulfillment for each of God's appointed feasts:
- Passover (Pesach)
- Unleavened Bread (Hag HaMatzot)
- Firstfruits (Yom HaBikkurim)
- Feast of Weeks or Pentecost (Shavuot)
- Feast of Trumpets or Rosh HaShanah (New Year)
- Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur
- Tabernacles or Sukkot (Feast of Booths)
- Rejoicing in the Law or Torah (Simchat)
- Feast of Dedication or Hanukkah (Chanukah or Feast of Lights)
- Feast of Lots or Purim
- Passover: A hymn is usually sung at the end of the Passover service, as was the case with Jesus and his disciples during the Last Supper (Matthew 26:30).
- During the Rosh HaShanah synagogue services, the shofar (ram's horn) is blown 100 times.
- Hanukkah is known as the Feast of Lights or the Feast of Dedication because of a legendary miraculous provision of oil for the eternal light in the Temple.
- Purim marks the deliverance of the Jews through Queen Esther.
- Leviticus 23 is sometimes called "God's calendar of redeeming grace" because the 44 verses tell of God's redemptive plan.
- God told Moses that seven of the feasts were to be "appointed feasts of the Lord" and were to be proclaimed as sacred assemblies (Leviticus 23:1 & 2).
- Three of the feasts were pilgrimage feasts.
