The celebration of Sukkot is stipulated in Leviticus 23:33-44. This Feast is observed on the 15th of Tishrei and celebrated for eight days. The first and last days are special Sabbaths (v. 35-36). Sukkot is one of the appearance Feasts mentioned in Exo 23: 14-17 and Deut 16:16. It is a Feast of great celebration. Many believed that this could be the time when Yeshua was born. Luke recorded that Joseph brought his wife Mary to Bethlehem during the time of first census (Luke 2:2-5). Joseph could not have brought his about-to-give-birth-wife just for census but most specially to appear before the L-RD as required in Exo 23:14-17 and Deut 16:16. We have to understand that Joseph was a righteous man (Matt 1:19) and the definition of a righteous man is keeping the commandments of G-D and the requirements of the L-RD (Luke 1:6). Yeshua being born in a manger (Luke 2:7) has nothing to do with being humble but in His birth, He observed the commandment to live in booths during this Feast (Lev 23:42). Another clue as to why He might had been born on this Feast is because of the name given to Him in Isaiah 7:14. He shall be called Immanuel, meaning G-D with us. The theme of the Feast of Tabernacle is "G-D with us" or "G-D tabernacles with us". This Feast will also be observed in the coming millennial kingdom Zech 14:16-19 and those who refuses to do will be punished.
