Sukkot: Approaching Tragedy With Joy
by Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo
When contemplating the festival of Sukkot, we are confronted with a remarkable paradox.
As is well known, the Sukkah visualizes our life span in the world. For what is a Sukkah? It is a frail structure which we need to dwell in for seven days. Many commentators remind us that these seven days represent man’s average life span which is about seventy years. This is well stated by King David when he wrote: “The span of his years are seventy and with strength eighty years.” (Tehilim 90:10) Indeed under favorable circumstances, we may prolong our stay in this world into our eighth day which is symbolized by Shemini Chag Atzereth, (a separate festival immediately following the seven days of Sukkot). [...]
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the
Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and
will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold,
my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be
called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make
thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish
my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant,
to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the
land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their
generations. This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee;
Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
Genesis 17:1-10 KJV

Celebrate Yeshua HaMashiach's birthday
- The Feast of Tabernacles !!!
Jesus' real birthday was around the 15th day of Tishrei during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot
by Ian David
Since John was born on Passover, the 15th day of Nisan (the 1st Jewish month), Jesus would have been born six months later on the 15th day of Tishri (the 7th Jewish month). The 15th day of the 7th month begins the Feast of Tabernacles (Lev. 23:34-35), also known as Sukkot. Jesus was born on the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles! In the year 5 B.C.E., this fell in the month of September.
This explains why there was no room at the inn for Joseph and Mary. A multitude of Jewish pilgrims from all over the Middle East had come to Jerusalem to observe the Feast of Tabernacles, as God required (Deu. 16:16). Bethlehem, which was only a few miles outside of Jerusalem, was also overflowing with visitors at this time because of the Feast. [...]

On What Day Was Jesus Born?
While much of the world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ on the 25th of December, can the actual day of Jesus' birth be determined from scripture? This question will be explored in some detail, and will yield a result that is quite intriguing. The first passage we will consider begins with the father of John the Baptist, Zacharias:
Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. Luke 1:8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, ... Luke 1:23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. Luke 1:24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, ...
The clue given to us here is that Zacharias was of the "course" of Abia.

On What Day Was Jesus Born
by Michael Scheifler
I think this article offers solid biblical evidence concerning the date of the birth of Jesus. I hope you read this article and glean the truth found in it. Precise scriptural evidence is offered to prove when Jesus was actually born. Though there is a simpler way. Consider this. Jesus was on the earth for 33 1/2 years. No one I know will dispute this fact. Jesus died on Passover. No one I know will argue this fact either. Now if He lived 33 1/2 years and died on Passover, you can back up one half year, (6 months) from when he died and it will bring you to the 15th day of Tishri. This is the same conclusion the article comes to, but with scriptural evidence to back it up. Even if this simple formula will put the issue to rest with some people, please do not hesitate to consider the valuable scriptural information found in the article below.
My sincere hope is that God will open the eyes of professing Christians to see that December 25th is not His birthday, Hopefully you will recognize the paganism associated with the X-MASS (Catholic celebration) and all its worldly ties. These types of practices are strongly condemned in Gods word and it is high time we awoke out of sleep and repented ourselves of these ungodly practices. [...]

Jesus born on 15th of Tishri
Argument for a Tishri (Sukkot) Birth
There are several reasons to believe that Yeshua was born during the Fall,
in particular, during the Feast of Tabernacles - Sukkot. Among the reasons cited are as follows:
Christmas Day - Was Jesus Really Born on December 25th ?
by John J. Parsons
As you will see, the crux of the arguments both for and against the late December dating of the birth of Yeshua depend upon the date assigned to the "course of Abia" and the precise time that Zacharias -- John the Baptist's father -- was in the Temple when he was visited by the angel Gabriel. But what is the "course of Abia" and why is it important?
King David (1 Chr 28:11-13) divided the sons of Aaron into 24 "courses" or groups (1 Chr 24:1-4) to create an orderly schedule by which the Temple of the Lord could be staffed for the year. Once these courses were established, lots were drawn to determine the sequence each group would serve in the Temple (1 Chr 24: 7-19). Each of the 24 courses of priests would begin and end their service on the Sabbath for a tour of duty of one week (2 Chr 23:8, 1 Chr 9:25).
The issue turns on the date assigned to the "course of Abia"
and the precise time that Zacharias was in the Temple
when he was visited by the angel Gabriel.
The Jewish calendar begins in the Spring (Nisan), so the first course of priests (Jehoiarib) would serve for seven days. The second week would then fall to the family of Jedaiah. The third week would be the festival of Passover, when all priests would be present for service, so the schedule would resume with the third course of priests (Harim) on the fourth week. By the tenth week, since both Passover and Shavu'ot had occurred, the 8th course of Abia (Abijah) would be called for temple service. By means of this arrangement, after the 24th course was completed, the cycle of courses would repeat, so that in a given year each group of priests would serve in the Temple twice per year (in addition to the three major festivals).
Argument for a Tishri (Sukkot) Birth
There are several reasons to believe that Yeshua was born during the Fall, in particular, during the festival of Sukkot ("Tabernacles"). Among the reasons cited are as follows:
Yeshua's cousin, John the Baptist, was conceived in mid Sivan (May/June) and born 40 weeks later on Nisan 15, the Passover.
John's father (Zacharias) was a Levite who was assigned to serve in the temple during the course of "Abia," the 8th course of the year. (Luke 1:5, 1 Chr 24:10)
Since the cycle of service began on the first Shabbat of Nisan but both Passover and Shavu'ot require all priestly courses to serve, the actual time the 8th course would serve would be during the 10th week of the year. This places Zacharias' service in the Temple as beginning on the second Sabbath of the month of Sivan (May/June).
It is written that John was conceived shortly after this tour of duty
(Luke 1:23-4). Therefore, John the Baptist was probably conceived shortly after the third Sabbath of the month of Sivan (i.e., late Sivan).
Therefore John the Baptist was born around Passover (Nisan 15). (Recall that Yeshua said that John the Baptist was a type of Elijah the prophet
(Matt 17:10-13, cp. Luke 1:17). Even today it is customary for Jews to set out a special cup of wine during the Passover Seder meal in anticipation of the arrival of Elijah for the festival.)
Yeshua was conceived in late Kislev (Nov/Dec) and born 40 weeks later during Sukkot (i.e., Tabernacles).
Yeshua was conceived six months after John the Baptist (Luke 1:24-27, 36). Note that the "sixth" month refers to Elizabeth's pregnancy, not the month of Elul (cp. Luke 1:36).
Six months added to late Sivan is late Kislev, which is the time of the conception of Yeshua (note that the first day of the Jewish festival of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, is celebrated on the 25th day of Kislev, and Yeshua is called the Light of the world (John 8:12, 9:5, 12:46)).
From the 15th day of Nisan (John's birthday), we add six months to arrive at the 15th day of the 7th month, Tishri
- the first day of the festival of Sukkot.
If the day of his birth were the first day of Sukkot, the day of his circumcision would be the eighth day, Shemini Atzeret/Sinchat Torah, which, like the first day, is a day of sacred assembly (Leviticus 23:39). On this day the Jews complete their annual cycle of Torah readings and start again from Bereshit (Genesis). Simchat Torah is considered to be a time of "fulfillment" of the Torah. The circumcision of Yeshua at this time indicates how he had come to fulfill the Law and the Prophets (Matt. 5:17-18).
John 1:14 states that the "Word became flesh and "dwelt" with us. The Greek word "dwelt" [skeinao] comes from the word skeinos, which the LXX (Septuagint) uses for the mishkan (tabernacle). The name given for the feast of Tabernacles itself is called Herotei Skeinon in the LXX.
King Herod most likely would used the opportunity of the Festival of Sukkot (in Jerusalem) to perform the census (certainly not Chanukah, since he detested and feared the Hasmoneans).
Shepherds would not be out with their sheep in the dead of winter in Israel.
The angel who appeared to the shepherds said, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people" (Luke 2:10). Since Sukkot was known as both a festival of joy and also as the "Festival of the Nations," the angel was actually giving them a greeting for the Festival of Sukkot. This is the only festival where the nations are positively encouraged to participate (Zechariah 14:16-19).
After Yeshua returns and sets up His kingdom on earth, it is written that only one festival will be celebrated by the nations: Sukkot (Zechariah 14:16) Why is that? Could it be that this will be a worldwide birthday party for Yeshua? (all the other festivals would have been fulfilled - Passover, FirstFruits, Pentecost, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur, but the remembrance of His birth would remain as a celebration).
The Catholic church (in 336 AD) declared December 25th (on the Julian calendar) to be Yeshua's birthday in order to replace a pagan Roman holiday, Saturnalia. Ironically, December 25th was a celebration of the birthday of the sun god. The early church, in an attempt to get rid of the pagan holiday, declared December 25th to be the birthday of the Son of God.
We know that Yeshua was 30 years old when He started His ministry (Luke 3:23), and, assuming (as many Bible scholars do) that He ministered for 3 1/2 years, we can count backwards from the crucifixion (during Passover in Nisan) 6 months to discover his birthday in Tishri.
Since Zacharias served during the tenth week and Elizabeth conceived shortly thereafter, we can place the date of Yeshua' birth during the festival of Sukkot. [...]

Sukkot starts Festival of Booths for both Jews and Gentiles
The secular world has its' holidays, and God has his. These days are what is known and appointed by God, as Seasons. The passing of these seasons is how God reckons time, and it is also the schedule that nature lives by. We are driven by a schedule of reckoning time that is appointed by a monetary system, but soon, that's all going to change, and when it does, you'll be glad that you took a moment to see what God likes about his camping holidays. This not about being Jewish, or not being Jewish, or being Baptist, Pentecostal, Catholic, Presbyterian, Messianic,or what have you, this is about just you and your Creator. God, has seven days out of 360 that he calls his children to come and spend time with Him. Like any Father, God Loves for his children to come and rest, and relax, and enjoy all the blessings he has to give.
Who are God's children? Really, who are they? God's children are those who seek to know what makes the Father laugh, cry, love, and even anger. They ask into thin air sometimes but knowing he hears when they say, God, what do you think? They seek his will and ask his will to be done and never do what the father's will is, perfectly, and often forget what they're looking for and that they even asked anything of God's will; and yet, they constantly and boldly ask forgiveness and have no fear of correction, and give thanks. They scream and curse, and when the storm passes, they come back to the father and ask what they could have done better to treat others better, and then screw up again; but all in all they think more about what God thinks then what humans think, and never stop believing that with God all things are possible, even perfection. May all you be blessed in this Season for the next 7 days. Keep looking up for our redemption draws nigh.
Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for
he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come
down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
Joel 2:23 KJV
