Two More Notes on Sukkot
According to the prophet Zechariah (14:9):
And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.In other words, Trinitarianism has to go. The only way for it to survive is if it's watered down into something resembling the Musaf Amidah on Rosh Hashanah. (During that prayer we Jews pray to God as king of the universe, to God as the recorder of all deeds, and to God as revealed by miracles and prophecies.)
The description of Jesus entering Jerusalem in the New Testament looks interesting to us Jews. According to St. Matthew (21:8-9):
And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.Cutting down branches? Shouting Hosanna? That's what we do on Sukkot. Do Christians celebrate Easter at the wrong time of year?
