The first of the barley harvest was brought as an offering to the cohen or priest in the Tabernacle/Temple during this the third of the four spring festivals. The priest would present the first of the harvest to Yahweh by waving them back and forth. This reminded the Hebrews that Yahweh gave them the land, and the harvest belonged to Him. Yah'shua (Jesus) is the Firstfruits (1 Cor. 15:20-23). Yah'shua's resurrection marked the beginning of the harvest of souls. John 12:23-24,32 shows Yah'shua was likened to a grain of wheat falling to the ground and dying to produce a great harvest. Yah'shua arose on Firstfruits.
