Tru Ministry Response: Remember and Celebrate: Why don’t the Old Testament feasts and festivals line up with the calendar?

Remembering and celebrating is an important part of Tru philosophy: to pause and look back, to acknowledge what God has done, so every age level participates.

  • TruWonder and TruStory: two per quarter (sixth and 13th lessons)
  • TruBlessings: last lesson every quarter
  • TruIdentity: last lesson of every series

The biblical feasts and festivals are integrated into the Remember and Celebrate lessons and follow a chronological path through the Scope & Sequence, rather than line up with the time of the year. 

There are a couple of ways the feasts and festivals could have been ordered throughout the curriculum. We chose to put them in Messianic symbolic order. Many theologians point to the festivals as symbolic eras in the Messianic timeline. Tru has them in the order of New Testament significance of what has been fulfilled and what has yet to be fulfilled. When we look at Scripture as theologians have, we can see symbolism in the feasts by the things God has done throughout time.

Practically, there aren’t enough feasts and festivals to neatly line up with every season.

For more information, please refer to the How It Works document, Remember and Celebrate section, for your specific age level.
