Starting with the commandment on circumcising a new born son which is noted in the book of Leviticus


Leviticus 12:1-3

Lev 12:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, to say, A woman, if she has seeded, and birthed a male: And shall be unclean seven days; as the days of the impurity of her infirmity, she shall be unclean. 3 And in the eighth day shall circumcise the flesh of his foreskin.

Now, reading the record of Yeshua's first eight days of his life noted in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 1:26-38; 2:1-39

Luk 1:26 
And in the sixth month [of Elizabeth's pregnancy] the angel Gabriel was sent from hwhy unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, hwhy is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with hwhy. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His Name YESHUA. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His Name YESHUA. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest [Matthew 1:23 Emmanu El]: and hwhy Elohim shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: 33 And He shall reign over the House of Jacob for ever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of Elohim. 36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

Gabriel's visitation with Mary occured during the Feast of Khanukkah. This will be explained later in the teaching.

Continuing:

Luk 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was Governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the City of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with Child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her Firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of 
hwhy came upon them, and the Glory of hwhy shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is hwhy Messiah. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising hwhy, and saying, 14 Glory to hwhy in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into the heavens, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this Rhema which is come to pass, which hwhy hath made known unto us. 16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising hwhy for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the Child, His Name was called YESHUA, which was so named of the angel before He was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days of her purification according to the Torah of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present Him to hwhy; 23 (As it is written in the Torah of hwhy, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called Holy to hwhy;) 24 And to offer a Sacrifice according to that which is said in the Torah of hwhy, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the hwhy's Messiah. 27 And he came by the Spirit into the Temple: and when the parents brought in the Child, Yeshua, to do for Him after the Custom of the Torah, 28 Then took He him up in his arms, and blessed hwhy, and said, 29 hwhy, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy Word: 30 For mine eyes have seen Thy Salvation, 31 Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy People Israel. 33 And Joseph and His mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary, His mother, Behold, this Child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; 35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. 36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; 37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the Temple, but served with fastings and prayers night and day. 38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto hwhy, and spake of Him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.


The Commandment for a newborn male child's circumcision is noted in the book of Exodus

Exodus 13:1-2

Exo 13:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Sanctify to Me all of the firstborn opening the womb among the Sons of Israel, among the Adam, and among the animals: he shall belong to Me.

And the offering of Mary, providing the two turtledoves, is from the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 12:4, 6-8

Lev 12:4 And of thirty days and three days, she shall dwell in the blood of her purifying; she shall not touch among any Hallowed Thing, and she shall not go into the Sanctuary until are fulfilled the days of her purifying....
6 And in the fulfillment of the days of her purifying, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of a son of his year for an Elevation Offering, and a son of a dove or a turtledove for a Sin Offering to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, to the Priest: 7 And shall bring him to the Face of hwhy, and shall atone upon her; and shall be cleansed from the flow of her blood. This is the Torah of the one bearing for a male or for a female. 8 And if she cannot find sufficient of her hand a lamb, and shall take two turtledoves, or two sons of doves; one for an Elevation Offering, and one for a Sin Offering: and the Priest shall atone upon her, and shall be clean.

Based on Luke chapter two, it is probable that Yeshua was born in the same plot of land that Boaz and David resided in their day.


Charting out Yeshua's first eight days from his birth, it would look somewhat like this


First Eight Days

This is what I call "The Four Questions" in relation to this teaching:

First Question: "When was the most appropriate time for Yeshua to be born?" The best answer should come from the Torah, for as Yeshua said in the Gospel of John chapter five, verse forty six, that "...Moses...he wrote of Me".

Second Question: "What event in the Torah would Yeshua have to come into the world?" The answer would be The Biblical High Holy Days. It would be impossible for Yeshua to be born in any other major event but one of the High Holy Days.

Third Question: "What kind of High Holy Day period would Yeshua had to have been born?" The answer is an eight day Biblical High Holy Day event.

Fourth Question: "Are there any Biblical High Holy Days that have eight day events?" Only two series of High Holy Days have eight day events: Passover/The Feast of Unleavened Bread and The Feast of Sukkoth/Solemn Assembly.

The reason I say this, because in my humble but strong opinion Yeshua, the Son of Elohim, who is 
hwhy, would not be born on man's pagan calendar, like the western Gregorian Calendar. Also, Yeshua would not be born on any of man made pagan holidays, like Christmas, which according to Michael Rood of A Rood Awakening is based on the pagan Babylonian holiday of the birth of Tammuz on December 25th. Yeshua would have to be born on His Father's Calendar, which is also Yeshua's Calendar, because He is the Living Word made Flesh, which includes the Word of the Calendar of hwhy in the Torah, as Yeshua said to the Jews that Moses wrote of Him, which is noted in the Gospel of John

John 5:46

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.


This would include the High Holy Days of 
hwhy, which are the Seven Appointed Times of hwhy.



PASSOVER AND THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

The Spring feast has an eight day period, including one day of Passover and the seven days of The Feast of Unleavened Bread. Some say that Yeshua was born during Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

This is the account of this Spring feast which is noted in the books of Exodus and Leviticus

Exodus 12:3, 6; 13:6

Exo 12:
Speak to all the Congregation of Israel, to say, In the tenth of this month, and they shall take each for themselves a lamb for the house of their fathers, a lamb for the house:... 6 And shall be for you to keep until the fourteenth day of this month: and all of the Assembly of the Congregation of Israel shall kill him between the mixing period (evening).

13:
Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh shall be a Feast to hwhy.


Leviticus 23:5-8

Lev 23:
5 On the first month, in the fourteenth of the month, between the mixing periods (evenings), shall be the Passover to hwhy. 6 And on the fifteenth day of this month shall be the Feast of the Unleavened Bread to hwhy: seven days of unleavened bread you shall eat. 7 In the first day shall be to you a Holy Calling: you shall not do any work of service. 8 And you shall bring a Fire Offering to hwhy seven days: on the seventh day shall be a Holy Calling: you shall not do any work of service.

This is a comparison of Yeshua's first eight days of life to the Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread:

First Day:
Yeshua's Life: 1st Day Passover: 1st Day
*Birth of a baby *Death of a lamb

These two days oppose each other, becuase one is the beginning of life, the other is death.



Second Day:
Yeshua's Life: 2nd Day Unleavened Bread: 1st Day
*Regular day *No service work

They are dissimilar. The day ordinals are not in harmony.


Eighth Day:
Yeshua's Life: 8th Day Unleavened Bread: 7th Day
*Circumcision day *No service work
*Pain from baby's cut *Public feast day

There are some similarities, but the ordinals are still not in harmony.

The following is a chart of the one day of Passover and the seven days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread


Passover


The next chart is a comparison between the chart of the one day of Passover and the seven days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the first eight days of Yeshua's life


Passover/Uneleavened Bread-Yeshua


CONCLUSION

There are dissimilarities betweent he first eight days of Yeshua's life and the one day of Passover and the seven days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread relates to death, sacrifice and sin. It is most likely that Yeshua was not born in the Spring High Holy Days.




THE SEVEN DAYS OF SUKKOTH AND THE ONE DAY OF THE SOLEMN ASSEMBLY

This is the Torah of Sukkoth and the Solemn Assembly which is noted in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 23:34-36, 39

Lev 23:
34 Speak to the sons of Israel, to say, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of the Booths of seven days to hwhy. 35 On the first day shall be a Holy Calling: you shall not do any work of service. 36 Seven days you shall bring a Fire Offering to hwhy: On the eighth day shall be a Holy Calling to yourselves; and you shall bring a Fire Offering to hwhy: she is a Solemn Assembly; and you shall not do any work of service... 39 Only on the fifteenth day of the seventh month in your gathering ta-the produce of the land you shall keep ta-the Feast of hwhy seven days: on the first day shall be a Rest, and on the eighth day shall be a Rest.

This is a comparison of Yeshua's first eight days of life to the seven days of Sukkoth and the one day of the Solemn Assembly


First Day:
Yeshua's Life: 1st Day Sukkoth: 1st Day
*Birth of a baby *Holy Convocation
*No service work
*A high Sabbath

Both of these two accounts show special events in the same day.


Second Through The Seventh Days:
Yeshua's Life: 2nd-7th Days Sukkoth: 2nd-7th Days
*Regular days *Regular days
*Still celebrating birth *Still celebrating
*Baby not yet named

They are both similar to each other showing no changes for these six days.



Eighth Day:
Yeshua's Life: 8th Day Day of Solemn Assembly: (8th) Day
*Circumcision *Holy Convocation
*Pain of baby's cut *No service work
*Baby named *A high Shabbath

Both show solemn events on the same day.


This is a chart of the seven days of Sukkoth and the one day of the Solemn Assembly


Sukkoth And Solemn Assembly


This is a comparison chart between the first eight days of Yeshua's life and the seven days of Sukkoth and the one day of the Solemn Assembly

Sukkoth And Solemn Assembly And Yeshua


CONCLUSION

This gives a strong comparison that Yeshua would have been born on the seven days of Sukkoth and the day of the Solemn Assembly.



SUKKOTH

Looking at the word SUKKOTH

The word Sukkoth comes from the Hebrew word "sook-kah"- Samek, Kaph, Heh (
hko). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5521, and its definition

Feminine of H5520; a hut or lair: - booth, cottage, covert, pavilion, tabernacle, tent.

from 5520 "soh-akh" (
Ko), and its definition

From H5526; a hut (as of entwined boughs); also a lair: - covert, den, pavilion, tabernacle.

from 5526 "sah-khakh" (
Kko or Kks), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to entwine as a screen; by implication to fence in, cover over, (figuratively) protect: - cover, defence, defend, hedge in, join together, set, shut up.



SOURCES

There are the scriptures that give credibility to the premise that Yeshua was born on Sukkoth:

SOURCE NUMBER ONE

THE FIRST SUKKOTH ACCOUNT: PART ONE


Genesis 17:1-17, 19, 21-24

Gen 17:
And Abram was a son of ninety years and nine years, and hwhy appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am El Shaddai; walk to My Face, and be perfect, 2 and I will make My Covenant between Me and and between you, and I will multiply you in much, much. 3 And Abram fell upon his face: and Elohim spoke to him, to say, 4 I, behold, My Covenant is with you, and you shall be for a father of many nations, 5 and shall not be called any more ta-your name Abram, and shall be your name Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 And I will fructify you in much, much, and I will give nations for you, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish ta-My Covenant between Me and between you, and between your seed after you to their generations for a Covenant of Ages, to be to you for Elohim, and to your seed after you. 8 And I will give to you, and to your seed after you, ta the land of your sojourning, ta all the land of Canaan, for an inhertance of ages; and I will be to them for Elohim.

9 And Elohim said to Abraham, And you, you shall keep 
ta-My Covenant, you, and your seed after you to their generations. 10 This is My Covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and between you and between your seed after you; Circumcise to you every male. 11 And you shall circumcise ta-the flesh of your foreskin; and shall be for a token of the Covenant between Me and between you. 12 And a son of eight days shall be circumcised to you of every male to your generations that is birthed in the house, or bought with silver from any son of a foreigner whom he is not from your seed. 13  The circumcising, shall be circumcised one birthed of your house, and one bought from your silver: and My Covenant, she shall be in your flesh for a Covenant of Ages. 14 And an uncircumcised male who has not circumcised ta-the flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, and shall cut her off, she, the soul, from her people; has broken ta-My Covenant.

15 And Elohim said to Abraham, Sarai your wife, you shall not call 
ta-her name Sarai, for Sarah shall be her name. 16 And I have blessed her, and also I have given with her to you a son: and will bless her, and she shall be for nations; kings of peoples shall be from her. 17 And Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, That of a son of a hundred years shall birth? And also Sarah, the daughter of ninety years, she shall birth?... 19 And Elohim said, Sarah your wife shall birth to you a son; and you shall call ta-his name Isaac: and I will establish ta-My Covenant with him for a Covenant of Ages, and to his seed after him.... 21 And ta-My Covenant will I establish with ta-Isaac, whom Sarah, she shall birth to you by this appointed time in the next year.

22 And finished to speak with him, and Elohim ascended from upon Abraham. 23 And Abraham took 
ta-Ishmael his son, and ta all the ones birthed of his house, and ta-all bought with his silver, every male among the men of the house of Abraham; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskins in this same day, as which Elohim spoke to him. 24 And Abraham was a son of ninety years and nine years in his circumcising the flesh of his foreskin.

It is probable that this "appointed time" in verse twenty-one, took place on the first day of Sukkoth.

Looking at the summary of this source:


*Abram and Sarai's names were changed to Abraham and Sarah.

*Abraham "laughed".

*The baby that will be born one year later is named "Isaac"

*All the males of Abraham's household were to be circumcised.

*The promise of Isaac did not occur until after Abraham and Sarah's names were changed.



Looking at the following words

LAUGHED

The Hebrew word for laughed is "tsah-khak"- Tsade, Khet, Kuph (
qxu). It is from Strong's Xoncordance number 6771, and its definition

A primitive root; to laugh outright (in merriment or scorn); by implication to sport: - laugh, mock, play, make sport.


ISAAC

The Hebrew word for Isaac is "Yeets-khak"- Yod,
Tsade, Khet, Kuph (
qxuy). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3327, and its definiton

From H6711; laughter (that is, mockery); Jitschak (or Isaac), son of Abraham: - Isaac. Compare H3446.

It was most probable, based on the time line that Abraham and all the males were circumcised on the day of Yom Kippur, the day to afflict their souls (in their case, their foreskins). This would have given Abraham time to recouperate for 
hwhy and the men's visitaion on the day of Sukkoth.



SOURCE NUMBER TWO

THE FIRST SUKKOTH ACCOUNT: PART TWO


Genesis 18:1-16

Gen 18:
And hwhy appeared unto him in the Oaks of Mamre: and he was sitting at the entrance of the tent according to the heat of the day; 2 And lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him: and saw and ran to meet Them from the entrance of the tent, and he bowed to the earth, 3 And said, Adonai, if now I have found favor in Your eyes, do you not now pass over, from upon Your servant: 4 Take now a little water, and wash Your feet, and stay under the tree: 5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and refresh Your hearts; afterward, You may pass over: for upon thus are You passing over upon Your servant. And They said, So you shall do as which you have said.

6 And Abraham hastened to the tent to Sarah, and said, Haste! Three measures of fine flour, knead, and make cakes. 7 And Abraham ran to the herd, and fetched a son of a herd tender and good, and gave to the young man; and hastened to prepare him. 8 And he took butter, and milk, and a son of the herd which was prepared, and set to Their faces; and he stood by Them under the tree, and They ate.

9 And They said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And said, Behold, in the tent. 10 And said, Returning, I will return to you according to the time of life; and, behold, a son shall be to Sarah your wife. And Sarah was listening at the entrance of the tent, and he [the tent] was behind him. 11 And Abraham and Sarah were old, going in days; had ceased to be to Sarah the manner according of women. 12 
And Sarah, she laughed in her midst, to say, After my failure, pleasure, she shall be to me, and my lord is old? 13 And hwhy said to Abraham, To why this did Sarah laugh, to say, That indeed, truly, shall I birth, and I, I am old? 14 Is a word too hard from hwhy? I will return to you by the appointed time, according to the time of life, and to Sarah shall be a son. 15 And Sarah, she denied, to say, I did not laugh; for she was afraid. And said, No; but you did laugh.

16 And the Men arose from there, and gazed upon the face of Sodom: and Abraham went with Them to send Them away.


In many words, Abraham was saying to 
hwhy, "Dwell (Sukkoth) with me". This was the first time hwhy had Sukkoth with His People, in specific Abraham and his household.

There were elements for the sukkah environment during 
hwhy's visitation to Abraham and Sarah:

*There were guests (In Yiddish "Ushpizin").

*Their shaded tree was their sukkah.

*They were feasting outside.




SOURCE NUMBER THREE

THE SECOND SUKKOTH ACCOUNT: PART THREE


Genesis 21:1-7

Gen 21:
And hwhy visited ta-Sarah as which had said, and hwhy did to Sarah as which was spoken. 2 And Sarah, she conceived, and she birthed to Abraham a son to his old age, to the appointed time which Elohim spoke with him. 3 And Abraham called ta-the name of his son that was birthed to him, whom Sarah birthed to him, Isaac. 4 And Abraham circumcised ta-Isaac his son, a son of eight days, as which Elohim commanded him. 5 And Abraham was a son of a hundred years, in the birthing to him ta-Isaac his son. 6 And Sarah, she said, Elohim has made laughter to me. All the ones hearing will laugh for me. 7 And she said, Who would have uttered to Abraham, that Sarah would suckle sons? For I have birthed a son to his old age.

One can see that Abraham's laugh back in Genesis chapter seventeen was a prophetic fulfillment of joy and merriment (being merry) for the first seven days in chapter twenty-one, and his circumcision was an act of a solemn assembly on the eighth day.

It was most probable that there were no other males born on the first day of Sukkoth and circumcised on the eight day of the Solemn Assembly but Abraham's son, Isaac. It was also probable that Isaac was the first male child to be circumcised on the actual first eight days of a male's birth.

This was the second time
hwhy had Sukkoth with His People, especially His visitation to Sarah, for Sarah was the matriarch of His People.

One can see that Isaac was a type and shadow of Yeshua's birth.

There are parallels between Isaac's birth and Yeshua's birth:


*Both women had yet to bear sons.

*Both of their parents were visited by divine visitation.

*Both were born on the first day of Sukkoth.
*Both babies were named in advance.

*Both were miracle babies.

*Both were circumcised on the eighth day of The Day of The Solemn Assembly.



ARGUMENTIVE ISSUE

There are those that say Isaac was born during Passover. There are reasons that Isaac was not born on Passover:

*Abraham and Sarah were not enslaved to the inhabitants in the land of Canaan.

*Abraham and Sarah were not fleeing from the land of Canaan, but to inherit it for their son, Isaac, and their descendants, after their grandson, Jacob.

*Abraham and Sarah were rejoicing in having a child in the land they were to inherit for them and their descendants.

*The land of Canaan was not in judgment to be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah.


There is something about this source passage that it does show, and it is called "harmonic overtones". Stepping aside from this teaching for a minute, i
n musical instrumental terms, harmonic overtones are other harmonic note sounds, not actually played, occur the same time above one note that is actually played. A great example of this is a typical church bell. When the bell is struck, one can hear another pitch above the natural note of the bell. One of my music faculty members at the time called the bell's overtone a "chip tone", which in music technicality in what he noted is a high pitched fourth ordinal of the musical eight note octave. This "Overtones Theory" analogy is not new in the scriputres. Indirectly back to the teaching, hwhy met Abraham and Sarah with the two other men on Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). But later in the previous Abrahamic account, one of the food items that Abraham gave them was "unleavened bread". Also later in that same passage, but not noted, hwhy and the men made "haste" to go to Sodom and Gomorrah, and made Lot and his family leave Sodom and Gomorrah in "haste", which are types of the Passover- the "harmonic overtones" of this Sukkoth account. In these Gospel accounts, Yeshua and Barabbas- the symbolic "kids of the goats", with the Jewish people being the symbolic "lot stones", are "harmonic overtones" of Yom Kippur during the time of Passover.



SOURCE NUMBER FOUR

THE THIRD SUKKOTH ACCOUNT


Genesis 24:1-67

Gen 24:
And Abraham was old, going in the days: and hwhy had blessed ta-Abraham in allness. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house that ruled over all that he had, Put now, your hand under my testicles: 3 And I will make you swear in hwhy, the Elohim of the Heavens, and the Elohim of the Earth, that you will not take a wife to my son from the daughters of the Canaanites whom I dwell in his midst: 4 But you will go to my land, and to my kindred, and you will take a wife for my son, for Isaac. 5 And the servant said to him, Perhaps the woman, she is not willing to go after me to this land: that returning, I shall return ta-your son to the land which you came out from there? 6 And Abraham said to him, Take heed for yourself lest you return ta-my son there. 7 hwhy, Elohim of the Heavens, who took me from the house of my father, and from the land of my kindred, and who spoke to me, and who swore to me, to say, I will give ta-this land to your seed; He shall send His Messenger to your face, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. 8 And the woman, if she shall not be willing to go after you, and you shall be innocent from this of my oath: only do you not return ta-my son there. 9 And the servant put ta-his hand under the testacles of Abraham his master, and sware to him upon this word.

10 And the servant took ten camels from the camels of his master, and left; and all the goods of his master were in his hand: and arose, and went to Aram Naharaim, to the city of Nahor. 11 And the camels knelt down outside of the city to a bored well of the water, of the time of the evening, of the time of the going out of the drawing. 12 And said, 
hwhy Elohim of my master, Abraham, cause to meet now to the facing of today, and do kindness unto my master Abraham. 13 Behold, I am standing by the eye-well of the water; and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water: 14 And shall be, the young woman whom I shall say to her, Let down now your pitcher, and I may drink her; and say of her, Drink, and also I will water your camels: her, you have designed for your servant Isaac; and in her I shall know that you have done kindness unto my master.

15 And before he was finishing to speak, and behold, Rebekah came out, who was birthed to Bethuel, son of Milcah, wife of Nahor, brother of Abraham, and her pitcher was upon her shoulder. 16 And the young woman was good of form much, a virgin, and a man had not known her: and she went down to the eye-well, and she filled her pitcher, and she ascended. 17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I shall drink a little water from your pitcher. 18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hurried, and she let down her pitcher upon her hand, and she gave him drink. 19 And she finished to give him drink, and she said, I will draw for your camels also until when they have finished drinking. 20 And she hurried, and she emptied her pitcher to the trough, and she ran again to the bored-well to draw, and she drew for all his camels. 21 And the man was wondering to her with silence to know that
hwhy had prospered his journey, if not.

22 And was, as which the camels finished to drink, and the man took a golden earring of a cut shekel of his weight, and two bracelets upon her hands, ten of gold of their weight; 23 And said, Who of the daughter are you? Tell me now: has the house of your father a place for us to lodge? 24 And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, son of Milcah, whom was birthed to Nahor. 25 And she said to him, Also straw also fodder are much with us, also a place to lodge. 26 And the man bowed, and worshipped to
hwhy. 27 And said, Blessed be hwhy Elohim of my master, Abraham, who has not forsaken his kindness and his truth from with my master: I being in the way, hwhy led me to the house of the brother of my master. 28 And the young woman, she ran, and she told to the house of her mother according to these words.

29 And to Rebekah was a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran to the man, to the outside, to the eye-well. 30 And was, as seeing
ta-the nose ring and ta-the bracelets upon the hands of his sister, and as he heard ta-the words of Rebekah, his sister, to say, Thus spoke the man to me; And came to the man; and behold, was standing by the camels by the eye-well. 31 And said, Come, blessed of hwhy; To why are you standing in the outside? And I, I have prepared the house and a place for the camels.

32 And the man came to the house: and unloaded the camels, and gave straw and fodder for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. 33 And was set to his face to eat: and said, I will not eat, until that I have spoken my words. And said, Speak. 34 And said, I am the servant of Abraham. 35 And 
hwhy has blessed ta-my master much; and is great: and was given to him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and male servants, and female servants, and camels, and donkeys. 36 And Sarah the wife of my master, she birthed a son to my master after her old age: and was given to him ta-all that was to him. 37 And my master made me swear, to say, You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites whom I dwell in his land: 38 but that you shall go to the house of my father, and to my family, and you shall take a wife for my son. 39 And I said to my master, Perhaps the woman, she will not go after me. 40 And said to me, hwhy, whom I walk to His face, will send his Messenger with you and shall prosper your way; And you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from the house of my father: 41 Then when you come to my family, you shall be cleared from my curse; and if they shall not give to you, and you shall be cleared from my oath.

42 And I came today to the eye-well, and said, 
hwhy, Elohim of my master, Abraham, if you exist now, prosper my way which I shall go upon her: 43 Behold, I was standing by the eye-well of the water; and was, the virgin was coming forth to draw water, and I said to her, I shall drink, now, a little water from your pitcher; 44 And said of her to me, Also you, drink, and also I will draw for your camels: she is the woman whom hwhy has chosen for the son of my master.

45 I, before I had finished to speak to my heart, and behold, Rebekah was coming out, and her pitcher was upon on her shoulder; and she went down to the eye-well, and she drew: and said to her, I will drink, now. 46 And she hurried, and she let down her pitcher from upon her, and she said, Drink, and also your camels I will make drink: and I drank, and also the camels made drink.

47 And I asked her, and said, Who of the daughter are you? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, son of Nahor, whom Milcah birthed to him: and I put the nose ring upon her nose, and the bracelets upon her hands. 48 And I bowed, and I worshipped to
hwhy, and I blessed ta-hwhy, Elohim of my master, Abraham, who led me in the true way to take ta-the daughter of my brother of my master for his son. 49 And now if you will be doing kindness and truth with ta-my master, tell to me: and if not, tell to me; and I may face upon the right, or upon the left.

50 And Laban and Bethuel answered, and they said, From 
hwhy has come the word: we are not able to speak to you evil or good. 51 Behold, Rebekah is to your face, take her, and go, and she shall be the wife of the son of your master, as which hwhy has spoken. 52 And was, that, as which the servant of Abraham has heard ta-their words, and bowed to hwhy to the earth. 53 And the servant brought out vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and clothing, and gave to Rebekah: and jewels were given to her brother and to her mother. 54 And they ate and drank, he and the men who were with him, and lodged;

and they rose in the morning, and said, Send me away to my master. 55 And her brother and her mother said, The young woman, she will dwell with us, days, or ten; Afterwards, she may go. 56 And said to them, Do you not delay me, and
hwhy has prospered my way; send me away, and I will go to my master. 57 And they said, We will call to the young woman, and we will inquire ta-her mouth. 58 And they called Rebekah, and said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go. 59 And they sent away ta-Rebekah, their sister, and ta-her nurse, and ta- the servant of Abraham and ta-his men. 60 And they blessed ta-Rebekah, and they said to her, Our sister, you will be of thousands of myriads, and your seed shall possess ta the gate of their haters. 61 And Rebekah, she arose, and her young women, and they rode upon the camels, and they went after the man: And the servant took ta-Rebekah, and left.

62 And Isaac came, from coming to Be'er Lakhai Ro'i; and he was dwelling in the land of the Negev. 63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward the facing of evening: and lifted his eyes, and looked, and behold, the camels were coming. 64 And Rebekah, she lifted
ta-her eyes, and she saw ta-Isaac, and she got off from upon the camel. 65 And she said to the servant, Who is this man that is walking in the field to meet us? And the servant said, He is my master: And she took the veil, and she was covered. 66 And the servant made account to Isaac ta all the things that was done. 67 And Isaac brought her to the tent of Sarah, his mother, and took ta-Rebekah, and she became to him for a wife; and loved her: And Isaac was comforted after his mother.

The fact that the sun was setting on the fifteenth day of the seventh month of Tishri/Ethanim was the first day of Sukkoth, and in my humble but strong opinion was also Isaac's fortieth birthday


Genesis 25:20

Gen 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took
ta-Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel, the Aramite, of Padan Aram, the sister to Laban, the Aramite.

This Genesis passage reveals that this was the day Isaac's bride, Rebekah, was to arrive at that sundown to become his wife. In other words, 
hwhy was saying to Isaac "Happy Birthday, Isaac. This is My birthday gift to you... REBEKAH!!!".

There were symbols of this Sukkoth scene of the arrival of Rebekah:

Abraham's servant (strongly sourced as Eliezer) The Ruakh HaKodesh
Isaac, the bridegroom Yeshua, the Bridgroom
Rebekah, Isaac's bride The Beleivers, Yeshua's Bride
Sunset, beginning of the first day of Sukkoth, Isaac's birthday Sunset, beginning of the first day of Sukkoth, Yeshua's birthday
The arrival of Rebekah to Isaac on the first day of Sukkoth The arrival of The Believers to Yeshua on the first day of Sukkoth


What is to be revealed in this chapter is a revelation in itself. Related, this chapter contains events related to The Fall High Holy Days:

Genesis 24:1-10: Abraham sending his senior servant, Eliezer, to find a bride for Isaac...
YOM TEURAH

What Abraham did was a call, or "shouting", to Eliezer to find a wife for Isaac.


Genesis 24:11-61: Eliezer meeting Rebekah; staying the night at her family's estate, and leaving with Rebekah in the morning...
YOM KIPPUR

Eliezer inflicted his soul praying to 
hwhy, and Rebekah inflicting her soul by going out to get water for Eliezer, his men and his camels until they were quenched. This is what the prophet Isaiah said regarding Yom Kippur which is noted in his book

Isaiah 56:6-8

Isa 56:6 Is not this the Fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the Glory of 
hwhy shall be thy Rereward. 9 Then shalt thou call, and hwhy shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 11 And hwhy shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

In this case, Rebekah was a "watered garden" providing the water to Eliezer, commonly accepted as Abraham's servant, the men and the camels.


Genesis 24:62-27: Eliezer brings Rebekah to Isaac for a wife...
SUKKOTH

TORAH PORTION KHAY-YEY SARAH




SOURCE NUMBER FIVE

Deuteronomy 31:10-13

Deu 31:
10 And Moses commanded them, to say, From the end of seven years, in the Appointed Time of the year of the Shemitah-release, in the Feast of the Sukkoth, 11 in coming all of Israel to see ta-the Face of hwhy, your Elohim, in the place which shall choose, you shall proclaim ta-this Torah before all of Israel in their ears, 12 the Assembly of ta-the People, the men, and the women, and the little ones, and your stranger who is in your gates, by that, they may hear, and by that, they may learn, and they may fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and observe him to do ta-all the Words of this Torah: 13 And their sons whom they have not known, they shall hear, and they shall learn to fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim all of the days which you are living upon the ground which you are going there over the Jordan to possess her.

Traditionally, this is what the Orthodox Jews call "Simchat Torah" (Rejoice of/[with the] Torah) They read the Torah on the day after the eighth day, which they call "Shemini Atzeret" (Eighth Day of Solemn Assembly). They based Simchat Torah on this scripture.

The issue with this, is that the scripture says the Torah is to be read on, or during, the Feast of Sukkoth, and not on the Solemn Assembly. It is an act to read the Torah during the time of rejoicing, because the reading of the Torah is a "joyous occasion", and not a serious means. In other words, in my opinion, the Judaic tradition made it a psychological means to say the Torah is serious, and not joyful. I will brief more of it later on in the teaching.




SOURCE NUMBER SIX

Judges 21:19-21

Jud 21:19 Then they said, Behold, there is a feast of 
hwhy in Shiloh yearly in a place which is on the north side of Beth El, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah. 20 Therefore they commanded the sons of Benjamin, saying, Go and lie in wait in the vineyards; 21 And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances, then come ye out of the vineyards, and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the land of Benjamin.

This was the first mention of Sukkoth after the Israelites entered and settled in the promised land. This account was also a type and shadow that Yeshua will snatch us away for His "Sukkoth Wedding".

This next scripture source, in theory, ties in with this Judges passage:




SOURCE NUMBER SEVEN


Matthew 25:1-13

Mat 25:1 
Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of Man cometh.

This is something no one has seen before until now. Carefully looking at these verses, one will see that Yeshua was hinting the Fall High Holy Days in this parable:

*Verses five through six was a type and shadow of the Fall High Holy Day of YOM TERUAH, where there was a shout (teruah) to the bride.

*Verses seven through nine was a type and shadow of the Fall High Holy Day of YOM KIPPUR. The wick that was trimmed was a symbol of the sins that the virgins were repenting, and the oil that was obtained by the wise virgins was a symbol of the Ruakh HaKodesh being filled in their lives. The foolish virgins that had no oil did not, and the foolosh virgins going to buy oil was symbolic of getting the Ruakh HaKodesh from the world.


*Verse ten was a type and shadow of the Fall High Holy Day of SUKKOTH. They went to the marriage feast with the Bridgroom, who is "YESHUA".

As Rebekah, the bride, came to Isaac on his birthday on the first day of Sukkoth in the book of Genesis chapter twenty four, so will we as His Bride come to Yeshua on His birthday on the first day of Sukkoth in this parable in the book of Matthew.




SOURCE NUMBER EIGHT

Deuteronomy 31:5-6, 11-13

Deu 12:
and hwhy shall give them towards your face, and you shall do to them according unto all the Commandment which I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and courageous, do you not fear them, and do you not tremble from their faces: for hwhy, your Elohim, He is the One going with you; will not fail you, and will not forsake you.... 11 in coming all of Israel to see ta-the Face of hwhy, your Elohim, in the place which shall choose, you shall proclaim ta-this Torah before all of Israel in their ears, 12 the Assembly of ta-the People, the men, and the women, and the little ones, and your stranger who is in your gates, by that, they may hear, and by that, they may learn, and they may fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and observe him to do ta-all the Words of this Torah: 13 And their sons whom they have not known, they shall hear, and they shall learn to fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim all of the days which you are living upon the ground which you are going there over the Jordan to possess her.

The place where 
hwhy set His name was in Jerusalem.



This next scripture source is the account after the temple was built:

SOURCE NUMBER NINE, PART ONE

1 Kings 8:1-11, 27, 65-66

1Ki 8:1 Then Solomon assembled ta-the Elders of Israel, and ta-all the heads of the tribes, the Chief of the fathers of the Sons of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up ta-the Ark of the Covenant of hwhy out of the City of David, which is Zion. 2 And all the Men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month. 3 And all the Elders of Israel came, and the Priests took up the ark. 4 And they brought up the Ark of hwhy, and the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and all the Holy Vessels that were in the Tabernacle, even those did the Priests and the Levites bring up. 5 And king Solomon, and all the Congregation of Israel, that were assembled unto him, were with him before the Ark, sacrificing sheep and oxen, that could not be told nor numbered for multitude. 6 And the Priests brought in the Ark of the Covenant of hwhy unto his place, into the Oracle of the House, to the Most Holy Place, even under the wings of the cherubims. 7 For the cherubims spread forth their two wings over the place of the Ark, and the cherubims covered the Ark and the staves thereof above. 8 And they drew out the staves, that the ends of the staves were seen out in the Holy Place before the Oracle, and they were not seen without: and there they are unto this day. 9 There was nothing in the Ark save the Two Tablets of Stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when hwhy made a Covenant with the Sons of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. 10 And it came to pass, when the Priests were come out of the Holy Place, that the cloud filled ta-the House of hwhy, 11 So that the Priests could not stand to minister because of the Cloud: for the Glory of hwhy had filled ta-the House of hwhy.... 27 But will Elohim indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House that I have builded?... 65 And at that time Solomon held ta-the Feast, and all Israel with him, a great Congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt, before hwhy, our Elohim, seven days and seven days, even fourteen days. 66 On the eighth day he sent ta-the People away: and they blessed ta-the king, and went unto their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that hwhy had done for David, His servant, and for Israel, His People.


SOURCE NUMBER NINE, PART TWO


2 Chronicles 5:1-14; 6:1-2, 18, 64; 7:1-10

2Ch 5:1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the House of 
hwhy was finished: and Solomon brought in ta-all the things that David his father had dedicated; and ta-the silver, and ta-the gold, and ta-all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the House of Elohim. 2 Then Solomon assembled ta-the Elders of Israel, and ta-all the Heads of the Tribes, the Chief of the Fathers of the Sons of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up ta-the Ark of the Covenant of hwhy out of the City of David, which is Zion. 3 Wherefore all the Men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the Feast which was in the seventh month. 4 And all the Elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up ta-the Ark. 5 And they brought up ta-the Ark, and ta-the Tent of Appointment, and ta-all the Holy Vessels that were in the Tent, these did the Priests and the Levites bring up. 6 Also king Solomon, and all the Congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the Ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude. 7 And the Priests brought in ta-the Ark of the Covenant of hwhy unto His Place, to the Oracle of the House, into the most Holy Place, even under the wings of the cherubims: 8 For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the Ark, and the cherubims covered the Ark and the staves thereof above. 9 And they drew out the staves of the Ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the Ark before the Oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day. 10 There was nothing in the Ark save the Two Tablets which Moses put therein at Horeb, when hwhy made a Covenant with the Sons of Israel, when they came out of Egypt. 11 And it came to pass, when the Priests were come out of the Sanctuary: (for all the Priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course: 12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the Altar, and with them an hundred and twenty Priests sounding with Trumpets:) 13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking hwhy; and when they lifted up their voice with the Trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised hwhy, saying, For He is good; for His Mercy endureth for ever: that then the House was filled with a Cloud, even the House of hwhy; 14 So that the Priests could not stand to minister by reason of the Cloud: for the Glory of hwhy had filled ta-the House of Elohim.

2Ch 6:1 Then said Solomon, 
hwhy hath said that He would dwell in the thick darkness. 2 But I have built an House of Habitation for Thee, and a Place for Thy Dwelling for ever... 18 But will Elohim in very deed dwell with ta-the Adam on the earth? Behold, Heaven and the heaven of the heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House which I have built!... Now therefore arise, O hwhy Elohim, into Thy Resting Place, thou, and the Ark of Thy Strength: let Thy Priests, O hwhy Elohim, be clothed with salvation, and let Thy Saints rejoice in goodness.

2Ch 7:1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the Fire came down from the heaven, and consumed the Elevation Offering and the Sacrifices; and the Glory of hwhy filled ta-the House. 2 And the Priests could not enter into ta-the House of hwhy, because the Glory of hwhy had filled hwhy's House. 3 And when all the Sons of Israel saw how the Fire came down, and the Glory of hwhy upon the House, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised hwhy, saying, For He is good; for His Mercy endureth for ever. 4 Then the king and all the People offered Sacrifices before hwhy. 5 And king Solomon offered ta-a Sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the People dedicated ta-the House of Elohim. 6 And the Priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of hwhy, which David the king had made to praise hwhy, because His Mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the Priests sounded Trumpets before them, and all Israel stood. 7 Moreover Solomon hallowed ta-the middle of the Court that was before the House of hwhy: for there he offered Elevation Offerings, and ta the fat of the Peace Offerings, because the Copper Altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive ta-the Elevation Offerings, and ta-the Food (Grain) Offerings, and ta-the kheylev-fat. 8 Also at the same time Solomon kept ta-the Feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great Congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt. 9 And in the eighth day they made a Solemn Assembly: for they kept the dedication of the Altar seven days, and the Feast seven days. 10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent ta-the People away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that hwhy had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel, His People.

Looking at 1 Kings 8:27 and 2 Chronicles 6:18 again


1 Kings 8:27 But will Elohim indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House that I have builded?

2 Chronicles 6:18
But will Elohim in very deed dwell with ta-the Adam on the earth? Behold, Heaven and the heaven of the heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House which I have built!

Include the word "tabernacle" as the alternate word with the word "dwell" in 1 Kings 8:27 and 2 Chronicles 6:18

1 Kings 8:27 But will Elohim indeed dwell [tabernacle] on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House that I have builded?

2 Chronicles 6:18 But will Elohim in very deed dwell [tabernacle] with ta-the Adam on the earth? Behold, Heaven and the heaven of the heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this House which I have built!

This verb "dwell" could also mean "tabernacle". King Solomon spoke this on the fifteenth day of Ethanim/Tishri, and
hwhy came down and dwelled in Solomon's Temple on that same day. hwhy also came to dwell in the Temple built by a King whose name means "peace", is the Fall High Holy Day, on the first day of the Biblical Feast of Sukkoth!!! Regarding these two key sourced verses, one can say that hwhy used King Solomon to say the phrase "But will Elohim indeed dwell on the earth?" to give us a "prophetic hint" as to when, in the future, Yeshua would be born. I will briefly talk about this more in a moment.



Connect what King Solomon said in 1 Kings 8:27 and 2 Chronicles 6:18 to what the the apostle John wrote in the Gospel of John:

SOURCE NUMBER TEN


John 1:14

Joh 1:14  And the Word [Yeshua] was made Flesh, and dwelt among us...


The word "tabernacle" is included as an alternate word with the word "dwelt" in this verse

Joh 1:14  And the Word [Yeshua] was made Flesh, and dwelt [tabernacled] among us...

The apostle John revealed the answer to the fulfillment of the "prophetic hint" spoken by King Solomon in
1 Kings 8:27, and 2 Chronicles 6:18, that Yeshua would dwell with us by having been made "manifleshed"... I mean manifest by being born on Sukkoth.

Looking at the word DWELT

The Greek word for dwelt is "skey-no-o" (skhnow). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4637, and its definiton


From G4636; to tent or encamp, that is, (figuratively) to occupy (as a mansion) or (specifically) to reside (as God did in the Tabernacle of old, a symbol fo protection and communion): - dwell.

from 4636 "skeynos"
(skhnoj), and its definition

From G4633; a hut or temporary residence, that is, (figuratively) the human body (as the abode of the spirit): - tabernacle.

from 4633 "skeyney"
(skhnh), and its definition

Apparently akin to G4632 and G4639; a tent or cloth hut (literally or figuratively): - habitation, tabernacle.

from 4632 "skyoo-os" (
skeuoj), and its definition

Of uncertain affinity; a vessel, implement, equipment or apparatus (literally or figuratively [specifically a wife as contributing to the usefulness of the husband]): - goods, sail, stuff, vessel.

Looking at the majority of these Greek words, it has the same first part of the word "skeyn"
(skhn). This is where we get our modern English word "skin". In Yeshua's case, he used His "Skin" as his "Tabernacle" to dwell upon the earth. It was at this point, that when Yeshua was born, He became a "Human Tabernacle", and hence, He was also born at the point where tabernacles (or booths, or dwelling places) were used on the Biblical Feast of Sukkoth (Tabernacles).

In connection to source number nine, when King Solomon, whose name means "peace", which 
hwhy came down to dwell in the Temple on the fifteenth day of Ethanim/Tishrei, the first day of Sukkoth, the Jewish People were under the ruling of the Roman Empire, but during the time Yeshua was born, it occurred during the period of what the Roman Empire called "Pax Romana" or "The Peace of Rome". This is what Wikipedia says when Pax Romana started:

"The Pax Romana started after Octavian (Augustus) defeated Marc Antony in the Battle of Actium on 2 September 31 BC".


 Notice that this period of "peace" during the "Pax Romana" would be an appropriate time for Yeshua was born. It would also connect to the similar instance during the reign of King Solomon, whose name means "peace", who built the Temple, and 
hwhy came to "dwell" in it on the fifteenth day of Ethanim/Tishrei, in the first day of Sukkoth.

Going back on source number five of Deuteronomy 31:10-13 regarding reading the Torah being read on the Biblical Feast of Sukkoth, during a Shemitah-release year, this was an act of joy reading the Torah during the Feast and not on the Solemn Assembly day. This was Yeshua, the Torah made "manifleshed"... I mean manifest during the time of joy and not of the time of seriousness. Yeshua purposed to be born in the days of joy and not the day of seriousness, because Yeshua is "the Joy" to be our joy. For us as believers in Yeshua, He uses our "skins", our flesh, for His place to "tabernacle" among us through His Ruakh HaKodesh Holy Spirit).

It is my humble, but strong opinion that after Augustus defeated Mark Antony and began the Pax Romana that
in a short period of time, if not, days, this is what Augustus did in this next source:

Luk 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the City of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with Child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her Firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.


Notice how timely this would have been for Caesar Augustus shortly after he defeated Mark Antony and ordained the Pax Romana that he would have a "tax" for the Jewish People, and it was probable that he did it with the motive to get the money to offset the costs of the war against Mark Antony. 
hwhy used that as the "opportune time" for His Son to be born in Bethlehem, which in the Gregorian Calendar was shortly after September 2, 31 BC, but in calculation, it was nearing the time of... what else?... The Feast of Sukkoth!!!

It could be also possible that Ceasar Agustus either knew, or his advisors knew, that the Jews would be celebrating the Feast of Sukkoth in Judea in the Jerusalem area based on the scripture that the Jews were to come to Jerusalem as one of the three times in the year they were go there and to not appear empty handed, which includes "money". This is taken from the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 16:16-17

Deu 16:16 Three times in the year shall all of your males appear towards ta-the Face of hwhy, your Elohim, in the Place which shall be chosen; in the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and in the Feast of the Weeks, and in the Feast of the Tabernacles: and shall not be seen empty towards ta-the Face of hwhy: 17 a man according to the gift of his hand, according to the blessing of hwhy, your Elohim, which was given to you.

Caesar Agustus could have been advised that it would be a convenience to tax all the Jews while they were all together in Judea and not spread out in both Judea and Samaria.

We need to remember that everyone who went to Judea were all from the Southern House of Judah (Joseph being of the house of David in Bethlehem). About all of the Northern House of Israel/Ephraim/Joseph were exiled from the land over 720 years prior, and were scattered throughout the nations, and the remnant (who were the Samaritans) were not allowed to Jerusalem.

Luke 1:5-25

Luk 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the King of Judaea, a certain Priest named Zacharias, of the Course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before 
hwhy, walking in all the Commandments and Ordinances of hwhy blameless. 7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. 8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the Priest's Office before hwhy in the order of his course, 9 According to the Custom of the Priest's Office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the Temple of the hwhy. 10 And the whole multitude of the People were praying without at the time of incense. 11 And there appeared unto him an angel of hwhy standing on the right side of the Altar of Incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. 13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name, John. 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the Sight of hwhy, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the Children of Israel shall he turn to hwhy, their Elohim. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a People prepared for hwhy. 18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the Presence of hwhy; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. 20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. 21 And the People waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the Temple. 22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the Temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless. 23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. 24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25 Thus hath hwhy dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

According to Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, this account took place on the Spring High Holy Day of Shavuoth. This makes sense, because the visitation of the angel, Gabriel, to Mary took place on Khanukkah, while Elizabeth was six months pregnant. Based on Mark Biltz's revelation, it would have placed the first month of Elizabeth's pregnancy thirty days after her conception with John, which would take the time line to the fourth Biblical month of Tammuz.

Also, based on Mark Biltz's revelation, when Elizabeth was one month pregnant, it would have placed the first month of her pregnancy thirty days after her conception with John, which would take the time line toward the middle of the fourth month.

By the time it reached the fifth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, it would have been the latter half of the ninth month of the Biblical calendar. By the time the angel Gabriel visited Mary, Elizabeth was six month's pregnant and would take the time line of her pregnancy at Mary's visitation to the latter half of the tenth month, which would take Mary's conception to the time of Khanuakkah.

John 7:2, 14, 21-23

Joh 7:2  Now the Jews' Feast of Tabernacles was at hand.... 14  Now about the midst of the Feast Yeshua went up into the Temple, and taught.... 21  Yeshua answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the Shabbath day circumcise a man. 23 If a man on the Shabbath day receive circumcision, that the Torah of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at Me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the Shabbath Day?

It was half way in the Feast of Sukkoth, which means it was on the fourth day, and based on the scripture account, this could have occurred on a regular Shabbath day (or according to Scott Aaron of Zealous For Zion that it occurred on Tuesday day).

Nevertheless, Yeshua was making the Jews realize that they had to circumcise a male child who was born on a regular Shabbath on his eighth day of the life on a regular Shabbath in order for the Torah to not be broken, and if they didn't do it on a regular Shabbath, they would be breaking the Torah.

Yeshua mentioned this to the Jews on a regular Shabbath, because He, Himself, could have been circucumcised on a regular Shabbath, which would have been the eighth day of his life during the day of the Solemn Assembly. Since Yeshua was born on the first day of Sukkoth, which was High Shabbath, He had to be circumcised on the eighth day on a High Shabbath, and both High Shabbaths fell on the regular Shabbaths.

John 8:56-58

Joh 8:56 Your father, Abraham, rejoiced to see My [Yeshua's] Day: and he saw it, and was glad. 57 Then said the Jews unto Him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast Thou seen Abraham? 58 Yeshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.

Yeshua spoke this on the seventh day, during the Feast of Sukkoth. These verse reveal that He met Abraham on Sukkoth before it became part of the Torah.

John chapter seven, starting at verse two, through chapter ten, verse twenty-one, was a recording of the events of the seven days of the Feast of Sukkoth and the one day of the Solemn Assembly (Note: I will include the dates of Scott Aaron of Zealous For Zion in which He says the days of Sukkoth in John's account occurred, colored in blue):


*John 7:2-10- Day Before Sukkoth (Tishri 14th): Tuesday Day (3rd Day of the Week) (Friday Day (6th Day of the Week))

*John 7:11-13- 1st Day of Sukkoth (Tishri 15th): Tuesday Night (4th Day of the Week) (Friday Night (Shabbath))

*John 7:14-36- 4th Day of Sukkoth (Tishri 18th): Possibly Saturday Day (Shabbath) (Possibly Tuesday Day (4th Day of the Week))

*John 7:37-8:1- 7th Day of Sukkoth (Tishri 21st): Monday Night (3rd Day of the Week) (Thursday Night (6th Day of the Week))

*John 8:2-59- 7th Day of Sukkoth (Tishri 21st): Tuesday Day (3rd Day of the Week) (Friday Day (6th Day of the Week))

*John 9:1-12- 7th Day of Sukkoth (Tishri 21st): Tuesday Afternoon Before Sunset (3rd Day of the Week) (Friday Afternoon Before Sunset (6th Day of the Week))

*John 9:13-10:21- 8th Day- Solemn Assembly (Tishri 22nd): Tuesday Night (4th Day of the Week) (Friday Night (Shabbath))


Based on the Gospel of John in chapter seven, verse two, through chapter ten, verse twenty-one, one can say, without question, that the seven days of Sukkoth and the one day of the Solemn Assembly started on Tuesday night and ended on the next Tuesday night (or Friday night through next Friday night according to Scott Aaron of Zealous For Zion).



SUMMARY

*Yeshua was born on the first day of Sukkoth and was circumcised on the eight day of the Solemn Assembly.

*Yeshua's birth and circumcision days were on the conjunctions of the regular Shabbath days and the High Shabbath Days.

*The story of Isaac's birth was a type and shadow of Yeshua to be born on Sukkoth and circumcised on the Solemn Assembly.

*Genesis chapter twenty four was a type and shadow of the Fall High Holy Days, and Rebekah was Isaac's birthday gift as a Sukkoth bride.

*King Solomon's profession during the temple dedication supports the premise that Yeshua would be born on Sukkoth.

*The parable of the Ten Virgins in the book of Matthew were types and shadows of the Fall High Holy Days and were symbols of potential Sukkoth brides as Yeshua's birthday gift on Sukkoth.

*Yeshua met Abraham on the first day of the Feast of Sukkoth before 
hwhy made it an official High Holy Day.
