HOST: Chris Clevenger
- Jews attended three feasts in Jerusalem every year: Passover (Spring), Pentecost (Early Summer), and Tabernacles (Autumn) (Exodus 23:14-19)

- As they journey they sang the “Psalms of Ascent” (Psalm 120-134) to prepare for worship.
- Psalm 135 begins with “praised” repeated 4 times and ends with “bless” repeated 4 times.
