This week we’re studying “The Feast of Weeks” (Shavuot). If you would like to pick up a copy of this book or the study guide, click here to go to Amazon (affil link).
If you’re following along with us, you should be reading chapter four of The Beauty of Jesus Revealed in the Feasts, and filling out your study guide. The study guide is designed to help you remember what you learn in each chapter and to dig a little deeper as you do.
Perhaps you could write down the scriptures you find in each chapter or highlight them right there in your book. This way, once you’re finished the chapter, you can look up these verses in your Bible to study them within the context of the Word.
Want to chat about the chapter? Join me on Friday afternoons on Facebook where I’ll post my answers to the study questions and open up a thread for your thoughts too.
Pastor Daniel Krebs (Trulife Ministries) and I have put together seven videos for you–one for each chapter. Each one is about 45 minutes to an hour long. Tune in every week as we’ll be your study buddies throughout this series.
Most Bible scholars believe that there was a 50-day span between the crossing of the Red Sea in Exodus and the giving of the Torah at the foot of Mount Sinai, marking that date as the Festival of Weeks. Here we see two extremes, one being a life of slavery in the land of Egypt, the other a life of freedom and communion with God.
These people went from a land where all they knew was idol worship, and now they stood before the one true God, ready to pledge their lives in allegiance to Him. What happened during those 50 days that transformed them? They didn’t come out of Egypt as mighty men of faith with a resolve to serve God, but rather from the moment they crossed the Red Sea they started grumbling against Aaron and Moses and longing to return to the life they once had. And so, there was a time of teaching and growing, and learning that had to take place in their lives just as there was with Peter during the 50 days prior to The Day of Pentecost.
One of the most profound parallels found in scripture is that of Acts Chapter 2 and Exodus 19. In Acts, we see the birth of the Church as the Spirit is poured out upon all believers; in Exodus, we see the birth of a covenant between God and man.
Join us this week to explore these parallels and more as we discover the beauty of Jesus revealed in The Feast of Weeks.

On Monday of each week, I’ll post a couple of printables here on the blog for you. It’s also on this day that you start reading your chapter for the week. Throughout the week, you can fill out your study guide at home.
On Wednesdays, I’ll post a video for you here on the blog as Pastor Daniel Krebs and I sit down to discuss each chapter. We have a separate video for each feast, which is about 45-minutes long. These videos are amazing! If you haven’t done so already, subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss them: Click here
