The Fall Feasts of Israel
TEACHER: STEVE HERZIG
SEPTEMBER 14, 21, 28
Israel’s Fall Feasts – Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and the Feast of Tabernacles – are rich with time-honored traditions, introspection, repentance, gratitude, and prophecy. Join FOI Equip’s Jewish sage, Steve Herzig, as he teaches about Israel’s Fall feasts from the Scriptures while sharing his experiences of being raised in an Orthodox Jewish home to placing his faith in Jesus the Messiah.
The Study of Sabbath
TEACHER: PETER COLÓN
OCTOBER 12, 19
The Sabbath is a weekly day of rest deeply ingrained in Jewish life, urging worshippers to remember the God who created the universe in six days and rested on the seventh. Join Peter Colon as he unpacks the Sabbath celebration, from the food they eat, to the prayers they recite, and the work they refrain from doing. Come and see why the Sabbath is more than just a day off; it's considered a gift from God, a time of joy and spiritual enrichment.
A Thanksgiving from Leviticus
TEACHER: CHRIS KATULKA
Thanksgiving is a time to gather around the table with loved ones to show our gratitude and thankfulness to God. It’s more than lots of turkey and stuffing–the day to give thanks has its roots planted deeply in American history when the Mayflower Pilgrims shared a feast with the Native American Wampanoag people in 1621. But was that really the first Thanksgiving meal? Join Chris Katulka as he takes you to the Biblical thanksgiving feast from the book of Leviticus, a thanksgiving meal eaten thousands of years before the Pilgrims stepped foot on Plymouth Rock.
O' Little Town of Bethlehem
TEACHER: CHRIS KATULKA
Have you ever wondered why Jesus was born in Bethlehem? It’s because where you come from defines you. Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem was no accident. In fact, it was predestined. Join Chris Katulka as he explores Micah 5:2, Micah’s prophecy of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem. God pinpointed where Messiah would be born, and tells us what kind of person He is.
