Shavuot, or Pentecost: May 16th at 7:00 pm
Shavuot is called the Feast of Weeks. It occurs 50 days after Passover. God gave the Torah (the Law) to His people at Mount Sinai on that day. Therefore, the feast is a time of celebrating the gift of the Torah. Many Jewish people today stay up all night reading the Torah together, and when Shavuot dawn breaks, they pray together and read the Ten Words, commonly called the Ten Commandments.
The first Shavuot after Messiah’s death and resurrection marked the pouring out of the Holy Spirit in the Temple in Jerusalem. Men heard the Good News of Yeshua in their own languages, and 3,000 came to faith in Messiah that day.
It is a time to rejoice in fulfilled prophecy and expectation of the great harvest to come, the resurrection of the righteous dead and entering into the joy of His Kingdom.
The Heart of the Matter

Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) taught the Law of Moses, and said in Matthew 5:17 "I did not come to destroy the law or prophets. I came to fulfill them." Yet so many teach otherwise. Can the Law and Messiah co-exist? The answer is emphatically yes! He is the living Torah.
