Days of Awe: Jewish Holy Days, Symbols and Prophesies for Latter-day Saints by Gale Boyd.

Days of Awe reminds us of our close connection with ancient Israel. It teaches about the nature of the various Jewish festivals and feasts. They are Messianic; therefore, they have special meaning for Latter-day Saints.

The Exodus from Egypt is explained as a walk through the Plan of Salvation. During the Exodus the Lord ordained seven Holy Convocations or Holy Days and commanded the Israelites to observe them forever. The imagery in these holy days lays out the entire religious time-line of the earth, especially the mission, identity, and comings of the Savior. Christ used the imagery to teach of himself, while he lived among the Jews.
