A Scapegoat and a Mystery

I tend to believe that the rotation of biblical holy days is significant, and that the fall holy days are more significant than the spring holy days because they point to a time to come, and the order of that coming. Many disagree, but c’est la vie, I go on my merry way.
So, I ask: Why is Rosh HaShannah before Yom Kippur, and Yom Kippur before Sukkot, and why do they end with Shemini Atzeret?
One sage says this, another sage says that, yet another sage says the other. All this mystery! Could it be that a very few elect know, but the rest of us must wait for the revelation?
Oh well. Shabbat Shalom!

    As a Baptist, I’m going to say the same thing Catherine did, I just don’t know, lol.

      I think the Baptist words are the same as the Episcopalian words … 😉
      Feast of Trumpets
      Day of Atonement
      Feast of Booths
      And one Christians don’t know about, and should, The Eighth Day …

        Well that makes sense then. Now I’m questioning the same thing you did, why are some days before or after others? 🤔
