*There are many more Scripture references, enough for 2 more postings, but I think we get the idea. If you would like the ones I’m not posting, just let me know and I can send them privately. *
Short notes on Feasts:
There are 3 feasts in Israel that directly speak of 3 groups of people. These feasts are Passover (Pesach), Pentecost (Shavuot, Feast of Weeks, Feast of Harvest, Latter First-fruits), and Tabernacles (Sukkot).
Passover – the Passover feast was celebrated in early March/late April to commemorate the day Israel left Egypt with Moses to go to the Promised land, the day after Passover, barley was harvested, it was the first crop harvested of the year, this feast was also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread because everyone was required to remove all leaven from their houses for a full seven days; leaven in our day now represents sin.
Pentecost – the Pentecost feast took place 50 days after the Passover feast, it commemorates the day the fire of God came down on Mount Sinai, wheat was harvested around this feast.
Tabernacles – the Feast of Tabernacles took place around September, this commemorates the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness; and the time Israel was to cross the Jordan into the Promised land; about this time of year, grapes are harvested.
The Hebrew word for barley is sehoraw. Strong’s Concordance says that sehoraw means “plant” in the feminine form and “grain” in the masculine form. Another similar Hebrew word is bar, which means “grain” or “son” as in heir. Symbolically, this is referring to the heirs or sons of God. Therefore:
sehoraw = plant, grain, barley
bar = grain, son, heirs or sons of God
