And I will show you how Jesus Christ, your Savior, not only observed these festivals - He is at the center of each of them. By observing these festivals, you are celebrating the very life and work of Jesus Christ. They are a key to developing a closer relationship with Him. You also can learn how God will bring salvation to the entire world.Join us on Beyond Today as we reveal Christ in the biblical festivals.[Announcer] Join our host, Darris McNeely and his guests, as they help you understand your future on Beyond Today ![Darris] Jesus Christ is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented figures in all history. He is certainly the most well known, but there is a lot to learn about His life, His teaching and His example.One truth is essential. It's that Christ kept the biblical festivals as part of His worship and teaching about the Father. And these festivals show Christ's central role in the process of salvation. It's important that we see these biblical Holy Days in their proper New Testament perspective. That perspective points to Jesus Christ. Jesus, who sits at the right hand of the Father, is the main agent of God's plan of salvation for mankind.Right at this point now, some of you may be thinking, “but those are Jewish feasts. They have nothing to do with the New Testament or Christianity today.” Unfortunately, that's a widely held belief - but it's wrong. These festivals do not belong to the Jews alone. They belong first to God and Jesus Christ. These are God's festivals. They also belong to Christians who desire to follow Jesus' example, and they have everything to do with Christ and His Church today.Let's step through the biblical festivals and let's learn how Jesus Christ is represented in each one. These New Testament festivals, they are grouped into three periods of the year, all connected by one feature - Jesus Christ. And they show us how to worship God as our Father, in the same manner that Jesus did.
