Seasons of The Harvest

The climate of Israel permitted a series of produce harvests from the land. Beginning in the spring, the barley harvest occurred in April-May, and then about seven weeks later, the wheat harvest in June-July. Months later came the autumn fruit harvest from the trees and vines in September-October. The annual Biblical Holy Days were directly related to these harvests (Passover near the barley harvest, Pentecost near the wheat harvest, and The Feast Of Tabernacles near the autumn harvest), not merely as seasonal celebrations, but because they also directly portrayed God's step-by-step plan of salvation for humanity.
