Fugue-Icons Calendar-Month Movement 05 Fall Feasts Face-off
  The Fall Feasts include New Year's Day (Rosh Hashanah), the Holy Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Huts. At first, Jesus avoids the crowds and slips into Jerusalem without notice. But when he emerges in the teaching alcoves, arguments break out over Jesus' identity and purpose. Jesus aggravates the debate. Though the religious leaders want to arrest Jesus, the timing isn't right and Jesus leaves the city.
