A holy day is coming to a close, and the sky outside my prayer room is putting on a dazzling display.
Today has been Yom Kippur, or The Day of Atonement, a holy day within Judaism.
I grew interested in learning about Jewish Holy Days while in Israel, and it occurred to me that since Jesus observed these days, I desired to have a knowledge and some understanding of them as well.
I’ve been meditating today on Romans 11 , where Paul describes how Gentiles, also interpreted as Christians, are like wild olive branches that have been grafted into the original olive tree of Judaism. We know that a growing number of Messianic Jews have already accepted Jesus as Messiah.
Jesus came to earth not to abolish ‘the Law’ of the Jewish people, but to fulfill it.
As the Psalmist tells us, let us continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
