What’s your source on the wrapping of the pole? I like that, but I’ve never seen it before.

It was a Bible study I did on the Jewish Feasts a few years ago. The teacher was a Messianic Jew that spoke of the Feast days having "themes". One theme was taught during the Feast of Tabernacles was the priests erected a post in the courtyard of the Temple, wrapped in in cloth dipped in oil, and lit. They would declare to the pilgrims "The Light of the World", as they passed it. It was placed in the courtyard so everyone could see and not just priests. This was just another example why a Jew was supposed to recognize their Messiah when He came. It was also another example of Jesus fulfilling EVERY jot and tittle of Jewish Law and tradition.
A very good DVD study is called "The Feasts of the Lord" by Mark Biltz.
This DVD set may cover this topic, I can't remember, but would have to re watch it to find out. If it is covered on the DVD, Biltz would give the Bible verse involved. Generally speaking, if there is a NT verse, he can tie it to an OT verse being fulfilled by Christ. If Jesus was referred to as "The Light of the World", it would be mentioned in the OT somewhere.
