If you have read much of the Bible at all, or if you have gone to church very long, you know that somewhere, out there in the future, there is a day of judgement coming. Now, there have been a lot of fanciful notions about judgement day. Somehow, in my youth, in listening to various preachers, I got the impression of God, sitting behind the bench in a courtroom like setting with a lot of books open before him, judging my life. One preacher I recall envisioned God playing our sins back for us on a giant movie screen for everyone to see. Another envisioned God having a big lever by his throne, and when we come there for judgement, some go to heaven but for others, he pulls the lever and a trapdoor opens and sends them screaming down to hell.

Most of what you hear about the judgment day owes more to the imagination of man than to the Bible. Then there are all the jokes about St. Peter and the pearly gates. But I will spare you those. But I do have to tell you, there is a judgment day. But this judgment day is nothing like the traditional depictions of it, and there is one very surprising thing about it which I will come to later.

But the first thing to know about it is that the writer of the book of Hebrews connects the judgement day to the Day of Atonement—Yom Kippur—a day usually dismissed by Christians as a Jewish Holiday. But in this series of programs, I have been making the case that these are not merely Jewish Holidays, but Christian holidays as well. Why so? Because every one of them is about the life, work, plan and ministry of Jesus Christ. So, what do we know about the judgement day?

In the autumn of every year, the Jews celebrate their most solemn festival—Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Would it surprise you to learn that Yom Kippur is a Christian holiday as well? That the New Testament church observed the day, only with a different sense of meaning?

Very few Christians take any note of the day at all, and that is surprising, since the day is all about the ministry of Christ. They cheerfully observe Easter which is not in the Bible at all, and ignore the Day of Atonement which is not only biblical; it lies right at the heart of the meaning of the Christian Faith.

Maybe it is because observing the Day of Atonement requires a fast, but it is probably because no one ever thinks of it. So, how can I say that Yom Kippur is a Christian holiday as well as a Jewish holiday? It would be best, I think, to look at the Christian significance of the day.

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Corinthians 15 51–52 KJV

There is no idea more central to the Christian faith than the resurrection of the dead. And yet, in these early days of Christianity, it had been called into question. It is in the great 15th chapter of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians that Paul wrestles with a group that claimed there was no resurrection from the dead.

I presume they still held a doctrine of the Kingdom of God, but for them, it was a physical kingdom—something a lot of Jews believed and expected. But Paul made it plain that they had it wrong.

Even if you are not Jewish, you are probably aware of the two main Jewish holidays in the autumn of every year: the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur. But you may not be aware that these are also Christian holidays. Around the end of the first century, there was a lot of persecution of the Jews in and around Rome, and the church began to differentiate themselves from the Jews in every way they could. A lot of practices that were very common in the early church disappeared in the smoke of an oppression of the Jews. But why would the early church have paid any attention to what we know as Jewish holidays?

For one thing, Christians and Jews shared the same God. In its earliest years, Christianity was viewed by the world, not as a separate religion, but as a sect of Judaism. The earliest Christians were Jewish, and they had no consciousness of starting a new religion. Rather they saw what they were doing as a restoration of a purer faith. Judaism, in the Christian view, had gone astray and they were going to put it right. There is nothing strange about that; nearly every new sect of religion sees itself as a restorer of lost paths.

And so the first Christians, who were Jewish, continued to observe the holidays they had observed all their lives, and they taught the Gentile converts to do the same. But it was inevitable that they should begin to see new significance in these days that transcended the Jewish/historical meaning of the days. To put it simply, the early Christians saw Christ in the Jewish holidays. And now, 2,000 years later, you and I come along and wonder, What did they see?

One would presume that Christian people would like to know more about God. And yet there is a treasure trove in the Bible of which most Christian folk are blissfully unaware. In the first place, we don’t read our Bibles enough, and in the second place we dismiss parts of the Bible for one reason or another. Now I submit that, on the face of it, dismissing any part of the Bible is not a smart thing to do—for the Bible is the true record of the revelation of God to man. And if you want to know and understand God, the Bible is where you would expect to begin, right?

And in the Bible there is a thread that has been all but dismissed by most Christian people and it has been so for a very long time. That thread is a set of days that the Bible calls the appointed times of Jehovah. You may know these as the Jewish holidays but the premise of this series of programs is that they are much more than that. They are the holidays of God and therefore are Christian holidays, because they speak of Christ and his work, and they have just as much meaning for Christians as they ever had for Jews.

Of all these days, the one with the least obvious connection is the day the Jews call Rosh Hoshana and the public calls, The Jewish New Year. There is a complete list of all these days in the 23rd chapter of Leviticus and this holiday is summarized:

And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall you have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no regular work on it: but you shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

Leviticus 23:23–25 KJ2000

Like any religious holiday, you take a day off from work and you go to church, that is you assemble before God—that is what a holy convocation is. That part is simple enough, but after that it becomes a little more difficult. For example, the day is a memorial, but a memorial of what? And you may have noticed that this is the first day of the seventh month, not the first month. How then can it be the new year?
