Numbers 28.25 – Seventh day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread was a holy convocation

As the Feast of Unleavened Bread concluded, the Lord told Israel,

“And on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work” (Numbers 28.25). 

For seven days they did not eat leavened bread, but unleavened, and the whole thing ended with a holy convocation.

The Lord wanted them to remember the escape from Egypt and the sufferings associated with it, even as He wants Christians to remember their escape from sin, remembering by eating the Lord Supper’s weekly, and by adding the Christian Graces (2 Peter 1.5–7).
