The Story Behind Today’s Holidays

Presented by Phil Sandilands

Have you ever wondered how the holidays typically celebrated today developed in ancient times? Are these holidays part of a pattern, related to each other in some way, or are they just singular events that grew out of antiquity?

In the end, we will be able to see why God told Israel, “Do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way” (Deuteronomy 12:30-31).
