Scripture Reading for Shavuot

Scripture Reading for Shavuot

Shavuot or Pentecost is the last of the four Spring Feasts of Yehovah. It concludes the time of rejoicing that makes up the period of counting the Omer. It is a time to remember the goodness of the Lord after the great Exodus from Egypt and the deliverance we now have in Jesus, and the help now available to us from the Holy Spirit.

Shavuot begins the Wheat harvest and it is a time to celebrate the provision of God. We see God renewing His covenant with Israel at Mount Sinai and in the Upper Room.
