Does John 7:37-38 refer to the seventh Day of the Feast of Tabernacles or the Eighth Day? The ritual and meaning of an important ceremony is not mentioned in the original instructions regarding the fall Holy Days in the Old Testament, but appears to be allowed by God and one Jesus participated in. The ritual, which may have begun with Ezra and Nehemiah, may indicate they knew a great deal about the future plan of God for all people.
