2022 Feast Dates — 10 Comments

  1. Nisan 17 was 3 days after Nisan 14, which was the Feast of Passover. Jesus died on Feast of Passover between 3:00 pm and 6:pm. He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15) after 6:00 pm, then rose again on the third day (Nisan 17 A.D. 30) The Temple was destroyed on AV 9, A.D. 70 (forty years later) which fulfilled Ezekiel 4:6. In case you really like the timekeeping aspect, On Nisan 10 was the day that Messiah rode into Jerusalem on the foal of an Ass, this was Psalm Sunday…Messiah (the Lamb) dwelt with Israel until He was sacrificed as the Passover Lamb of God on Nisan 14. Jesus the Messiah ascended to the Father 50 days after His Resurrection. That was the Feast of Pentecost, when the first disciples of Messiah were given the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of them.

    • I apologize, Acts 1:3 does say He was seen with them 40 days…so the Apostles had ten days until Feast of Pentecost to await for the promise from the Father. The Holy Spirit was given to the church on the Feast of Pentecost as a gift of betrothal to His Bride.

    • These cannot be known for certain as the New Testament never mentions a calendar date. This is one possible scenario and is reasonably thought out. Because the Gospels are not date specific, I don’t believe it is all that important. Thanks for your comment.

  2. Does not First Fruits represent our Savior’s ascension to the Father? For He is the First of the First Fruits. And would it not be the 3rd day and nights after He was crucified being placed in The Tomb just at sunset on the Sabbath?

    • Hi Sandra,
      It is true that First Fruits foreshadows Yeshua’s resurrection. As to the exact timing… well, I don’t think we can nail that down with absolute certainty. That doesn’t change the fact that Yeshua was crucified, buried, and raised again in fulfilment of these Feasts. For further clarification, or maybe for further ambiguation, check out my post Guess What Day It Is.

  3. Does Pentecost/Shavuot always fall on a Sunday? If not I’m hoping for more in-depth explanation as I at this place and time in my spiritual walk not 100% sure. Thank you.

    • Hi Sandra,
      You ask an excellent question, and will find that people disagree. Check out my post Shavuot, The Undated Holiday for my take. If you are part of a local fellowship, please keep Pentecost/Shavuot when those you are in covenant with celebrate it. I believe unity is far more important than figuring out who is right.

      This year, the two different traditions will keep Shavuot on the same day, Sunday, June 5, which is the same day the Christian community is observing Pentecost. It is a great opportunity to share.

  4. My Name is Mark I’m single no family OK and know absolutely no one that celebrates these feast days can yall please email me or send me step by step instructions on how I can celebrate these feast days and God approving of it some of these feast are week long events and there is no way I can take off work for a week at a time can you help

    • Shalom Mark,

      When I first started keeping the Biblical feasts I thought there was no one else around. After a while, I began finding others and later discovered there were many. Just start by being faithful and doing the best that you can.

      There are a few articles on each feast here on The Messianic Light, along with some suggested resources. Most of the books you can sample on Amazon to see if they interest you.

      As for taking a week off work, that is certainly not a Scriptural command. There are only seven days during the year (besides the weekly Sabbath) when we are told to not do our regular work: the first and seventh days of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, the first day of Sukkot and the Eighth Day.

      Passover, First Fruits, and the days in between the “sabbaths” I just listed are not days you must take off. Hanukkah and Purim aren’t even commanded at all. Celebrating feasts is not meant to be a burden and you should not feel obligated to take a whole week off just because someone else does.

      Be blessed in your efforts!
