    Tabernacles, feast of

    An autumn festival of ingathering lasting eight days; people were instructed to ‘dwell in succoth’ (Lev. 23: 42; ‘booths’ is an alternative name for the feast) as a memorial and thanksgiving for the safety of the tribes in the wilderness. The Court of Women in Herod's Temple was lit for seven days by giant candelabra, and this may have been the reason why John (8: 12 ff.) placed Jesus' discourse (‘I am the light’) in the context of the feast of Tabernacles.
