In the Bible Moses describes the annual feasts that the Jewish people were to celebrate. The pilgrimage feasts of Passover, Weeks (in Greek, Pentecost, the fiftieth), and Booths. The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is looked upon as especially holy. In addition to those annual feasts Moses commands that a year of Jubilee be celebrated every fifty years. The highlight of the year was that each family would return to their ancestral heritage. Such a program would ensure that what we call today income disparity would be leveled out. The idea of being able to start over, to begin anew is woven into the Christian culture as well. God never gives up on us, always gives us a new chance to grow in grace.
