Journey to Mount Sinai 2

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesian 2:10 NKJV

What does it mean to walk in the good works that God has prepared for us to do? This is a question that I have been conscience of for much of my own life. This coming May 15 and 17, we will be releasing the next film, Patterns of Evidence series, Journey to Mount Sinai II, as a FATHOM EVENT in theaters nationwide.

The Official “Saudi Arabian” Invitation

The Journey to Mount Sinai investigation was started in 2003 when I was invited by Dr. Glen Fritz, along with Jim and Penny Caldwell and Dr. Lennart Moller, to travel to Saudi Arabia on an officially sanctioned visit to the NW corner of the country. This was considered a goodwill trip allowing Westerners the opportunity to get to know Arabian culture and experience the beauty of the desert as well as Bedouin hospitality of the area.

For those on the trip, this was an amazing opportunity to go to the area some historians pointed to as the ancient land of Midian, where Moses fled from Egypt and lived for 40 years with his father-in-law Jethro.

The anti-Semitism of the early Church is one of the great tragedies of history. While the teachings of Jesus came straight from the Hebrew Scriptures, a backlash against ritualistic devotion to the Law developed into a deliberate attempt to steer away from the Old Testament. Tensions with the Jews led to severe persecution as the Church became a dominant political institution during subsequent centuries. A wedge was driven between Jews and Christians, although both worshipped the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jewish communities developed a staunch resistance to Jesus as the Messiah, and Christians lost the richness of Jewish history and prophecy, the very foundations of faith in Jesus Christ.

As Christians, we need to understand our Jewish roots. Many of the teachings of Christianity take on deeper insight and meaning when we understand them in a Jewish context, and few places is this more clear than in a study of the feasts of Israel. The seven Feasts of Moses are not only commemorative historically as they are observed in Judaism, but every detail of these seven feasts are anticipatory of the person and mission and achievement of the Messiah.

The first three Feasts of Moses take place in the spring; the Passover Feast, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the Feast of First Fruits. They all occur in the first month of the religious year, Nisan. In this article, we will take a look at the third of the three feasts.
