October 7/8 of 7 BC - The Feast of Tabernacles
Luke writes that the angels say, "I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people". The Feast of Tabernacles is celebrated for seven days and is called "Season of Our Joy" and "Feast of the Nations". John refers to Jesus Christ as "the light of the world" as another reference to the Feast of Lights. Jesus Christ dwelt or tabernacled with us. Matthew says they will call Him Emmanuel, which means God with us. As God the Father dwelt in the Jewish temple, so Jesus Christ dwells in a body with humanity.
There were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men (Luke 2:8-14).
In him [the Word, Jesus Christ] was life; and the life was the light of men. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt [or tabernacled] among us (John 1:4, 14).
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel" (which means "God with us") (Matthew 8:23).
Jesus Christ is the double fulfillment of Tabernacles. During the future one thousand year reign of Jesus Christ on earth, we will go up to Jerusalem each year on the Feast of Tabernacles to celebrate both the birthday of Jesus Christ and His coronation as King of Kings. Both times, God dwells on earth with man.
