YAHOVAH’S FEASTS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
FEAST OF PENTECOST OR SHAVUOT
In this series of posts, we’re going to briefly list Yahovah’s biblical Feasts, show the commandment in the Old Testament, then list New Testament scriptures that show Yeshua HaMashiach, the apostles, or the church observing these eternal Feasts of Yahovah.
Leviticus 23:15-22, “And you shall number to you from the next day after the Sabbath, from the day you bring in the sheaf of the wave offering; they shall be seven complete Sabbaths; 16to the next day after the seventh Sabbath, you shall number fifty days; and you shall bring near a new food offering to Yahovah; 17you shall bring in bread out of your dwellings for a wave offering, two loaves; they shall be of two tenth ephah of flour; they shall be baked with leaven; first-fruits to Yahovah 18And besides the bread, you shall offer seven lambs, without blemish, sons of a year, and one bull, a son of the herd, and two rams; they are a burnt offering to Yahovah, with their food offering and their drink offerings, a fire offering of soothing fragrance to Yahovah. 19And you shall offer one he-goat for a sin offering, and two lambs, sons of a year, for a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, a wave offering before Yahovah, besides the two lambs; they are holy to Yahovah for the priest. 21And you shall make a proclamation on this same day; it is a holy gathering to you. You shall do no laborious work of service. It is a never ending statute in all your dwellings throughout your generations. 22And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not completely reap the corner of your field, nor shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest; you shall leave them for the poor, and for the alien: I am Yahovah your Divine One.”
Acts 2:1-21, “And in the fulfilling of the day of Shavuot, they were all with one mind in the same place. 2And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven, as a groaning spirit along by a violent wind! And it filled the entire Temple where they were sitting. 3And tongues as of fire appeared to them, being distributed, and it sat on each one of them. 4And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave ability to them to speak. 5And Jews were living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation of those under the heaven. 6And when that sound occurred, all the people gathered and were perplexed because they were hearing each man among them who were speaking in their own language. 7And all were amazed and marveled, saying to one another, Behold, we can’t grasp this, are not all these, those speaking, Galileans? 8And how do we hear each in our own language in which we were born, 9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those living in Mesopotamia, both Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10both Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the regions of Libya over against Cyrene, and the temporarily residing Romans, both Jews and proselytes, 11Cretans and Arabians; in our own languages we hear them speaking the great wonders of Yahovah? 12And all were amazed and puzzled, saying to one another, What could this be? 13But ridiculing, others said, They are full of sweet wine. 14But standing up with the eleven, Peter lifted up his voice and spoke out to them, Men, Jews, and all those living in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to my words: 15For these are not drunk, as you imagine, for it is the third hour of the day. 16But this is that which has been spoken by the prophet Joel, 17“And it shall be in the last days, Yahovah says, I will pour from My Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18And also I will pour out My Spirit on My servants and hand maids in those days, and they shall prophesy. 19And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and miraculous signs on the earth below, blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the Coming of the great and glorious day of Yahovah. 21And it shall be that everyone who shall call on the name of Yahovah will be saved.””
Acts 20:16, “For Paul had determined with himself not to pass by Ephesus, lest he should be delayed there; because he hasted on, if possible, to keep the day of Shavuot in Jerusalem.”
1 Corinthians 16:8, “But I will remain in Ephesus until Shavuoth.”
