THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
The Feast of Sukkot, or Tabernacles, is known by and encompasses many different attributes. One of the most powerful and often overlooked attributes is the Feast’s connection to light. Light is one of those staple items that finds itself vital in both the natural and spiritual world. From day one of Creation to the lights of the city of Jerusalem coming down out of heaven at the end of Revelation, light is a major subject of the Bible. Light and its counterpart, darkness, seem to be the subject of many a story in biblical text. In the Feast of Sukkot, light is one of the primary components of the entire holiday.
