Jews in Jerusalem and around the world spend all night studying the Bible

Listen to Today's Program Play

Jewish men and women in Jerusalem and around the world spent all night studying the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, in honor of the day that traditionally the Lord gave the Torah, the Law, to Moses at Mt. Sinai in the wilderness of Egypt.

The practice of Jewish people learning all night long is a custom rather than a commandment and they say it is the express of one's desire to draw closer to God as they celebrate the Jewish feast day of Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Feast of Pentecost, Shavuot in Hebrew, is one of the seven Jewish feast days, each of which have a prophetic significance as it relates to the end times that is according to Bible prophecy.

As Jewish people around the world study the first five books of the Bible all night long, they honor the giving of the Law, the Torah, to Moses at Mt. Sinai 3500 years ago. Thousands of Jews from around the world also made their way to Jerusalem and the Western Wall there at the Temple Mount where they prayed and studied the Torah following a Biblical command to go to Jerusalem on the Feast of Pentecost.

This report is drawing attention to the Jewish people observing one of the seven Jewish feast days that God gave them in the Torah. Each of these Jewish feast days has not only a historic significance but also a prophetic significance. Jesus Christ fulfilled the first three Jewish feast days. He was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread and resurrected on First Fruits 2000 years ago.

However, in the future, Jesus Christ will also fulfill the last three Jewish feast days. On Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah, Jesus Christ will come back to the earth, Matthew 24:31. He will enter the Temple and go into the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, Hebrews 9:25-26 and then Jesus Christ begins His Kingdom on the Feast of Tabernacles according to Matthew 17:1-6.

The Jewish feast day of Pentecost is indeed a reminder that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
