Feast of Weeks (Shavuot or Pentecost) (Leviticus 23:15-22) Shavuot means ‚??weeks‚?Ě in Hebrew and Shavuot is called Pentecost in Greek. This is the second firstfruits offering, an offering of the wheat harvest. This feast honors God. It is at this time that God gave Moses his teachings and instructions. It was then that God married Israel, as He came down on top of the mountain, a canopy of cloud settled on the mountain top ‚?? a chuppah or a wedding canopy. Just as God gave Israel the marriage contract, the Torah, on Shavuot, we now have Jesus, the Word of God come to life who marries us.
Shavuot (Pentecost): For 2018, the dates are May 20-21. Solomon‚??s Rest will celebrate Saturday May 19 with a potluck following service.
