Shavuot – The Birth of the Church

Shavuot – The Birth of the Church

What is Shavuot (pronounced Sha-voo-oat)?

Shavuot is also the celebration of the Feast of Weeks or to use a term the church understands better – Pentecost. It is the Jewish celebration of the giving of the Torah (the books of Genesis through Deuteronomy) to Moses on Mount Sinai. Each year, as has happened since the day God’s word was given to the Israelites, there continues to be a Jewish celebration of the giving of God’s word to Moses on those tablets that God Himself inscribed. This is the holiday of Shavuot.
