Sam has a passion for the Jews but also in helping gentiles understand the significance of their Jewish heritage and how it relates to Messiah Jesus.

He is doctrinally sound and yet calls for Christians to look afresh for new discoveries in the Word.

What perspective does the DVD take on the relevance of the Feasts of the Bible today?
The feasts are a clear sign of God's redemptive program for mankind. The six sessions start with Sabbath Rest, the beginning point in God's plan and how we are to relate to God the Father. The Sabbath is a public testimony of God's redemptive work. Likewise, the Passover points us toward the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God. In Pentecost we see God giving of the law and later giving of the Holy Spirit. The Feast of Trumpets, in part, points the way to the Kingship and sovereignty of God. Truth, not tradition, we are reminded is needed for the human soul. The Day of Atonement reminds us of our inability to save ourselves and the seriousness of sin which separates us from God. Finally, the Feast of Tabernacles shows us that God is looking to restore lost humanity. It is a time of great rejoicing and ingathering.
