What is it about?
During this feast the children of Israel remember how they dwelt in tabernacles in the wilderness for forty years. They were to go and make booths and to dwell therein for seven days feasting and giving thanks to Most High for bringing them out of Egypt. The first and the eighth day were to be Holy Convocations.
How do we celebrate it?
We celebrate this feast by not doing any servile work on the 1st or 8th day of the feast and having holy Convocations in which we come together with church and feast. We are also to dwell in booths or tabernacles as our forefathers did.
How Christ fulfilled this Holy Day:
During our travels in the wilderness, we dwelt in the presence of the Lord. This will happen again in the wilderness (Zech 2nd chap.) and also in the kingdom (Hos. 6:2; Isa. 60:19-20; Rev. 21:22-25).
