The Church's Hebrew Heritage and Christian Worship
An index of resources for reflection on Old Testament worship practices. Israel's worship in the Old Testament is the liturgical heritage of all Christian worshipers.
Israel's worship in the Old Testament is the liturgical heritage of all Christian worshipers. John Schuurman and Jane Tiemersma Vogel write in Reformed Worship that celebrating Old Testament festivals in their worship helped worshipers "understand the context of God's mighty acts," deepened their awareness of "a big part of our Bibles of which we were previously unaware," focused them on "ways of keeping covenant with younger generations," and, above all, helped worshipers to "worship and bring glory to God."
Consider deepening your worshiping community's knowledge of its Hebrew heritage, and expanding its worship, by celebrating Old Testament festivals—keeping a constant eye on the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel in the coming of Jesus Christ.
