Rosh HaShanah

What Does Rosh HaShanah Mean for Christians?

What do the biblical feasts mean to us as Christians? Should we ignore them as people of the new covenant? Not necessarily…

God established the order of the months in Exodus 12 and gave the Israelites feasts to remember three things by:

  • God’s protection
  • God’s provision
  • God’s promise

In addition, the seven feasts are prophetic for the “calendar of divine redemption” (see Leviticus 23). The Gospel is all about redemption! The holidays and Sabbath days are a “shadow of things to come” (Colossians 2:16-17). It is no coincidence that Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension occurred during Passover season. It’s no coincidence that Pentecost took place when the law was given and when there was an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2. In Exodus 32, 3,000 idolaters were stricken dead, and in Acts 2, 3,000 were baptized in the Holy Spirit, all on Pentecost. God foresaw these things and he planned the redemption of mankind! God is a timely God and the richness of his intentionality towards his children is astounding. (Read the Feasts of the Bible pamphlet to learn how to calculate the Jewish calendar.)

What is Rosh HaShanah About?

Also called: Feast of Trumpets, New Year, Yom HaTeruah, Day of Judgment
Takes place: 1 Tishri (September or October)
Scripture Basis: Leviticus 23:23-25
Feast of Trumpets: The Beginning of the Civil New Year
The Tend Days of Repentance with Rosh HaShanah (Rosh Ha-SHA-nah) on the first day and Yom Kippur on the last day make up the High Holy Days, Jewish tradition says that God writes every person’s words, deeds, and thoughts in the Book of Life, which he opens and examines on this day. If good deeds outnumber sinful ones for the year, that person’s name will be inscribed in the book for another year on Yom Kippur. So during Rosh HaShanah and the Ten Days of Repentance, people can repent of their sins and do good deeds to increase their chances of being inscribed in the Book of Life. During Rosh HaShanah synagogue services, the shofar (ram’s horn) is blown 100 times. (From Feasts of the Bible.)

What About Jesus?

The Feast of Trumpets is also called the “Day of Judgment,” a prophetic sign of Jesus holding the authority to judge all, the living and the dead (John 5:24-27, 2 Tim. 4:1). We read in Revelation 21 about God’s book of life (the “Lamb’s book of life”) and the way to have one’s name permanently in the book is through faith in Jesus as Savior from sin (John 10:27-30). Judgment and a sentence to hell is owed to those not found in the book (Rev. 20:15).

Fascinating Facts About Rosh HaShanah

  • Traditionally, cards are sent to relatives and friends, wishing a healthy, happy, and fruitful new year.
  • The proper greeting “L’shanah tovah tikatevu” translates to “May you be inscribed [in the Book of Life] for a good year.”
  • Sliced apples in honey is the festive fare for this feast: the apples represent God’s provision and the honey sweetness for the coming year
  • Like Easter or Christmas for Christians, Rosh HaShanah draws many Jewish people to synagogue, even if they haven’t attended services the rest of the year
  • The Feast of Trumpets is in Hebrew Scripture, found in Num. 29:1-6

Does “Turning the Other Cheek” Mean Taking the Abuse?

article-0-1BA6330300000578-989_634x416

It was a shock to sports fans around the globe when Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was indefinitely suspended from the team this past Monday. Known to be a “person of character” by Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, Rice was filmed on a security camera months before suspension in an elevator beating his then-fiancee unconscious. How could someone deemed “a great guy” and a “person of character” by close friends and teammates turn without a moment’s notice into an abuser? This topic raises questions for Christians around the world about how we should treat domestic violence victims and abusers and it begs the question: “What does God say about all this?”

Rice was known to drink, but there’s usually more to it than substance abuse when it comes to domestic violence. Childhood experience, emotional instability, cultural beliefs, low self-esteem, and mental illness can all play parts in the making of an abusive cycle. Most people would agree that God is fiercely protective of the ones He loves, as we read in scripture. He delivered the Israelites from the hands of the Egyptians and the Holy Spirit’s power is more than evident in the protection of the early church and Jesus’ disciples in their journeys. But what about the other facets of domestic violence? God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16), but what does the Word say about separation due to abuse? How are we as Christians to navigate the tricky and complicated conflicts of domestic violence? How do we help victims without “getting in the middle of it all?” How do we confront abusers?

If you knew the statistic that one out of three women are victims of domestic violence, you would probably stop considering the possibility that spousal abuse isn’t prevalent enough to be talked about. June Hunt answers the questions that don’t get answered in the pulpit on Sundays in a biblical and empathetic manner in her book Domestic Violence: Assault on a Woman’s Worth.

ASK JUNE

Dear June, Since the Bible teaches "submit to one another," isn't leaving an abusive relationship against the teaching of the Bible?

June Says: The Bible teaches mutual submission in a loving relationship, not one-way submission in an abusive relationship. The specific biblical instruction to anyone around a hot-tempered person is separation—get out of harm’s way. Even a temporary separation could help bring about a permanent resolution and hopefully eventual reconciliation. A person with out-of-control anger must be willing to stop the abuse and get help. Many times, temporarily removing yourself from a volatile situation will prompt your abuser to seek help for fear of losing you.

The Bible gives this instruction:

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered.” (Proverbs 22:24)

And the very next verse continues with this warning of staying in a volatile situation:

Or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.” (Proverbs 22:25)

Learn more about domestic violence and how to spot it with June Hunt’s new minibook Domestic Violence

God designed the marriage relationship to benefit one another. He intended married couples to love, honor, and cherish each other all the days of their lives, but life doesn’t always turn out that way. In some relationships, cruelty has replaced the sacred relationship defined by God. This minibook outlines a Christian approach to help you identify and stop physical and emotional abuse.

In too many homes around the world, the marriage bond has become bondage—shared lives have become shattered by abuse. Husbands berate, belittle, and betray their wives. Yet these secret assaults stay hidden from the outside world. Whether you are personally in an abusive relationship or know someone who is, find out how to identify different types of abuse and learn strategies for dealing with abuse.

It answers key questions:

  • Why does a man become abusive?
  • Why does an abused women stay?
  • What is God’s heart on abuse?
  • How do you respond as the friend of the abused?
