Celebrating Jesus in the Biblical Feasts: Discovering Their Significance to You

Weaving the Scarlet Thread From the Feasts of Israel to Jesus! This intriguing and biblically sound book clearly shows the significance of each Feast of the Lord—and how they all point to Jesus. Dr. Richard Booker depicts the unity found in God’s unfolding purposes for His people, be they Jew or Gentile, from the new birth found in Passover and the Crucifixion, all the way to entering God’s rest found in the Feast of Tabernacles and the Second Coming. The Always-Present One said to Moses, “Tell the people of Israel: ‘You will announce the Always-Present One’s appointed feasts (festivals) as holy gatherings. These {are} My special feasts (Leviticus 23:1-2 PEB). The Feasts of the Lord given originally to Israel are pictures of the Messiah, and represent seven phases of spiritual growth in the life of believers: • Passover. • Unleavened Bread. • First Fruits. • Pentecost. • Trumpets. • Atonement. • Tabernacles. Welcome the relevance and richness of celebrating the feasts today!

Humphrey’s First Palm Sunday

A new follow-up to the popular Humphrey’s First Christmas that finds Humphrey in the midst of Jesus’ triumphal entry. The delightfully goofy camel we met in Humphrey’s First Christmas is back, three decades older and not much wiser. He wants nothing more than to be the lead camel in the caravan, so he can improve his view. When the caravan leads him to Jerusalem, he crosses paths with Jesus making his triumphal entry. Humphrey is delighted to see Jesus, now a grown man, and remembers the Child to whom he gave his coveted blanket all those years ago in Bethlehem. Carol Heyer’s rich acrylic paintings showcase the quirkiness of the camel and add humor to the story. Here is a book that both entertains and informs without ever straying from the meaning of Palm Sunday and the Easter holiday. Ages 4-8.
