It is tradition that this is when the Creator gave משה Moshe (Moses) the Ten Commandments, the Law, to follow. That this is also when רוח הקודש Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit), our Comforter, was given by ישוע Yeshua (Jesus) our Rescuer and Deliverer, to have the Law always in our hearts to guide us in the right way in truth as believers, is no coincidence. Yeshua’s words from John 14:10-18 ~
Here are the Ten Commandments from Deuteronomy/Devarim Chapter 5:1-25 דְּבָרִים
The Hebrew word in verse sixteen specifically is about murder – not about killing in self-defense or defense of others. This is important to know. The Creator never contradicts Himself, we must always remember.
As for all Jewish festivals, eating great food is tradition! 😀 Dairy dishes are a favorite for Shavuot. 🙂
Praying that mischacha (family) around the world and friends have a safe and joyous Shavuot. The Creator is worthy of all praise. חנ שבועות שמח Chag Shavuot Sameach!
