How is a well meaning mother to protect her daughter from a culture where the birth of a baby girl is met with despair because the only future open to her is that of sexual assault and teenage pregnancy, which would doom her to a life of illiteracy and poverty as it has doomed her lineage before her? Genital mutilation has many causes but at the root of all of them is fear. A fear that pushes a mother to do the unthinkable to a daughter that she loves? What does a scapegoat do with the fate she has been handed? Accept it and roll with it, or reject it? How is she to reject it when the acceptance of her role is needed for her culture's psychic equilibrium? In the theater of the mind where all springs forth, is there such a thing as an innocent victim, and a victimizer? Feasts of Phantoms is a novel that explores of all of these questions.

Feasts in John

Jewish Festivals and Jesus' "hour" in the Fourth Gospel

In this work Michael A. Daise broaches the question of the rationale lying behind the six feasts mentioned in the Gospel of John. He argues that, in an earlier recension of the Fourth Gospel, those feasts were sequenced into a single, liturgical year and, as such, furnished temporal momentum for the concurrent motif of Jesus' 'hour'. After reviewing the feasts as they appear in the narrative, then critiquing the major theories proposed for their purpose, the author presents his key premise that the Passover at John 6:4 is to be read not as a regular Passover, observed on 14 Nisan (first month of the Jewish calendar), but as the 'Second Passover' of Numbers 9:9-14, observed on 14 Iyyar (second month of the Jewish calendar). The law of "hadash" for barley (6:9) requires a date for chapter 6 after the regular Passover; the Exodus manna episode (Exodus 16), on which John 6 largely turns, dates to 15 Iyyar; the contingent character of the Second Passover explains Jesus' absence from Jerusalem in John 6; and, with John 5 and 6 reversed, the chronology of John 2:13-6:71 coheres. On such a reading, the feasts of the entire Fourth Gospel unfold within a single, liturgical year: Passover (2:13), Second Passover (6:4), the unnamed feast/Pentecost? (5:1), Tabernacles (7:2), the Dedication (10:22-23) and Passover (11:55). Inasmuch as this scheme brings chronological design to chapters 2-12, and inasmuch as those same chapters also chronicle the imminent arrival of Jesus' "hour" (2:4; 12:23), an overarching purpose for the feasts emerges; namely, to serve the motif of Jesus' "hour" by marking the movement of time toward its arrival.

Ancient Bible Feasts opens hidden Bible truths concerning Israel, Christ, and the church. These seven feasts given in their order and days of the year in Leviticus 23 are symbolic of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, the decent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost; the future rapture of the church; and the great tribulation and second advent of Christ; concluding with His thousand-year millennial reign here on earth. Other books written about these feasts deal with the same events, but none has gone into detail or explained the meaning of the celebrations and sacrifices God commanded the Israelite's to celebrate so many years ago. Dr. Bailey explains the meaning of certain numbers in the Scriptures and shows their importance in these feasts and how these numbers prove the accuracy of the fulfillment of these feasts. He also prove from Scripture that Jesus Christ died at the time the Passover Lamb was killed in Egypt; the meaning of the blood being put on the doors of the houses that the Israelite's were in; that Jesus resurrected at the same time the last Israelite came out of the Red Sea centuries earlier; that the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples the exact time God came down on Mt. Sinai some fourteen hundred years earlier. He also explains the sacrifice at Mt. Sinai that points to the fact that Jew and Gentile will become one in Christ. This book is a treasure to all students of the Holy Scriptures.
