Yeshua gives the Living Water. He cried out to the people in the Temple on the Feast of Tabernacles, likely during the Water Pouring Ceremony, asking them to see that He was the reality pictured by the liturgy of the ceremony.

“In the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.).”
- John 7:37-39.


18 Pool of Siloam/ Living Water

The Feast of Tabernacles Water Pouring

Every morning during the Feast of Tabernacles the
priests would march down to the pool of Siloam and
fill bowls with water and return to the Temple.

At the Temple, the High Priest would pour the water
libation on the Altar of Sacrifice. This ceremony was
so joyous that the Mishna says,

“Whoever has not
seen the simchat beit ha shoevah [the rejoicing of the
water drawing] has not seen real joy in his life.”

Water is symbolic of God’s Holy Spirit and His
Word. This is pictured in the words of Isaiah:
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out
of the wells of salvation [Hebrew: Yeshua].”

- Isaiah 12:3..
