Seeing Jesus in the Feast of Firstfruits
9 And the Lord said to Moses, 10 Tell the Israelites, When you have come into the land I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, that you may be accepted; on the next day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it [before the Lord]. 12 You shall offer on the day when you wave the sheaf a male lamb a year old without blemish for a burnt offering to the Lord. 13 Its cereal offering shall be two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord for a sweet, pleasing, and satisfying fragrance; and the drink offering of it [to be poured out] shall be of wine, a fourth of a hin. 14 And you shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor green ears, until this same day when you have brought the offering of your God; it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your houses.
A sheaf (Hebrew – “omer,” meaning – “measure”)was to be brought to the priest at the Temple who would wave itbefore the Lord for acceptance.
