The Feasts


Feast of Unleavened Bread

The Feast of Unleavened Bread or Hag HaMatzah, God’s second feast, begins the day after Passover and lasts for seven days, God’s perfect number. This feast is a yearly reminder that Israel left Egypt in haste (Exodus 12:39). On the first day of this feast the Israelites walked out of Egypt in the Exodus.

On this same day of the year, friends buried Jesus or Yeshua. Because Yeshua was “unleavened” and free from sin, His body did not decay in the tomb, a fulfillment of Psalm 16:10.

The Unleavened Bread chapter in the Feast Book proves that unleavened bread is always sacred in scripture. Unleavened bread was part of consecrating priests, taking Nazirite vows, and making sacred offerings. It was the food of angels in Genesis 18:6-8. It was a symbol of Yeshua’s body in Luke 22:19, and of His followers in 1 Corinthians 5:7. This chapter shows readers how to clean leaven from the home, involving the entire family.

In Scripture

And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the LORD; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. —Leviticus 23:6 [ESV]
