Stepping Up - Session 3

Session 3 - He Surrounds His People

This session further focused on the symbolism of the Old Testament feasts and how they are important to New Testament Christians.

The Feast of Weeks occurs seven weeks after the Feast of First Fruits.  Christians may know this as Pentecost.  The Feast of Weeks was a time to remember their former bondage, a time to reflect back and realize how far God has brought them.  It was also a time of great generosity and freewill offerings.

In Exodus 23:16 it is also called the Feast of Harvest and is the timing of Acts 2:41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church—about three thousand in all.   Christ is the First Fruit offering and the Church is the harvest!
