Christ In the Feast of Pentecost by David Brickner
We've all eagerly counted the days to a special occasion, and Pentecost--"Shavnot"--is the only holiday for which God "commanded "a countdown.
This engrossing book will quickly capture your attention as you realize the excitement leading up to this festive occasion and the richness it will bring to your understanding of both the Old and New Testament references. The authors treat us to the sense of anticipation that "cannot be overstated" as their insightful account of traditions leading up to this holiday unfolds...a boy's first haircut, bonfires, sweet treats, artful paper cutting, firstfruits. "Shavnot "will lead believers in Jesus into greater understanding of the significance of the "omer," the waiting period, which foreshadows our watching for His return and gives further meaning to our work of building His kingdom.
