The Significance of ‘The Days of Awe’ for Christians


Every year, thousands of Jewish and Christian pilgrims from all over the world travel to Jerusalem to celebrate the fall Jewish holidays, known as “The Days of Awe” or the “High Holy Days.” These important days in God’s calendar include “Rosh Hashanah” or “The Feast of Trumpets,” “Sukkot” or “The Feast of Tabernacles,” and “Yom Kippur” or the “Day of Atonement.”


The name Rosh Hashanah literally means the “head of the year.” The annual holy days start on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and end ten days later on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.


Theologians believe that many of the other major biblical feasts have already been fulfilled through the life of Jesus or the New Testament Church. The Feast of Tabernacles is a celebration of the final harvest before the New Year. Many theologians believe that this feast has not had its New Testament fulfillment. They believe it will be fulfilled when the Trumpet of God sounds and the Messiah returns to bring in the final harvest of souls from the earth.
