You state that Jesus was a Jew. OK, His mother was a Jew, but His father was God, and do you think that God is a Jew and therefore His son is a Jew? Another aspect you should consider, is that God dealt with Israel and not just the Jews. The Holy Days were declared by God for Israel, and not just the Jews, for the Jews or Judah was one of the 12 sons born to Israel.

Don't misunderstand me, for I have a lot of sympathy for the Jews, for they have suffered more and many more years than any other nation or nationality. God declared that Israel and not just the Jews, should keep the Sabbath, the Passover, the Days of Unleavened d Bread, the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day. Pentecost was added after Jesus was resurrected. After Jesus departed from earth, many nations kept the Holy Days, until approximately 311AD. Catholicism in Rome desired the Pagans to keep the same Holy Days, however, the Pagans had their own celebration days.

Thus Rome converted to celebrating the Holy Days on the days that Pagans celebrated their festivals, and thus as the Pagans celebrated their festivals, they appeared to be celebrating God's Holy Days as declared by Catholicism. Let me quote from Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Do you understand; the seventh day is the Sabbath, which of course is Saturday, and not Sunday and God ordained it so from the creation of Adam and Eve. May I suggest that you read Exodus, chapter 12. You will find that the Holy Days, including the Sabbath, were reinstituted to Moses who lead the Israelites, not just the Jews out of Egypt.

If you read the New Testament, you will note that Jesus kept the "Holy Days", just as the Israelites did, approximately 1200 years before Christ was born. Furthermore, you will find that the Apostles also kept the "Holy Days", including the Sabbath. One other aspect you may consider, is that December 25 or Christmas was celebrated at least a thousand years before Jesus was born and most assuredly, Jesus did not celebrate Christmas. Jesus was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, which would have been at the end of September or the beginning of October and assuredly not on December 25. One other piece of information that I would like to share is that Jesus kept the Passover on a Tuesday evening, for the day according to God, begins in the evening.

After Jesus kept the Passover, He was arrested and hung on a stake at approximately 3:00 PM, which would have been on a Wednesday afternoon. If you count the days, Jesus was resurrected on Saturday evening and not on a Sunday. I was born and raised as a Catholic, however in my early 20's, I began studying the Bible. Needless to say, I was shocked. For clearly, the Bible contradicted Catholicism and the so called "Christianity", and the keeping of Sunday as the "sabbath" and the observing of the Pagan holidays instead of Gods "Holy Days". I too would wish that GOD will bless you, and that you may study the Bible and learn how Christianity has been deceived by Pagan practices.
