Jesus Risks His Life to Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles

John 7:2, 10  

Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. … But when His brothers had gone up, then He also went up to the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

In spite of the threat to His life, Jesus Christ secretly made His way to Jerusalem for the annual Feast of Tabernacles. But in the middle of the Feast, He openly went to the temple and taught the people (John 7:14). The Feast of Tabernacles and the work the Father sent Him to do were so important, He was willing to face those plotting against Him.

The Feast of Tabernacles is the sixth of seven annual festivals, and it remains a meaningful festival today. Learn more about it in the article “The Feast of Tabernacles: A Bountiful Harvest.”
