The Feast of Weeks

      Israel is a fertile country with two or more harvests a year. The first one comes around the beginning of June, approximately seven weeks after Passover. Biblical people celebrated a Thanksgiving holiday, appropriately called "The Feast of Weeks" or Shavuot in Hebrew. It also recalled the Covenant God made with the Israelites at Mount Sinai. The Apostles were holding a secret observance of the holiday to avoid being arrested. Suddenly their fear vanished when the Holy Spirit descended on them. We know the Feast of Weeks as "Fifty Days" or in Greek, Pentecost.
