Feast overlays

The Spring and Fall feasts overlay. Why?
The sacred year starts Nisan 1. The Passover lambs (or goats) are selected Nisan 10. They are kept in the house and examined for any defects. They are slain toward to end of Nisan 14 to be eaten in haste the beginning evening of Nisan 15. About midnight of Nisan 15 is when the Israelites left Egypt. The feast of unleavened bread is Nisan 15-21. The waving of the sheaf of Firstfruits is Nisan 16. 50 days later is Pentecost.

The Fall feasts are similar, six months later. Tishri 1 is the Feast of Trumpets. Tishri 10 is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Tishri 15-21 is the Feast of Tabernacles. Tishri 22 is a sacred assembly.

Nisan 14 and Pentecost have no counterparts in the fall. And the sacred assembly of Tishri 22 has no counterpart in the Spring. What does this foreshadow?

Prophetically, the Spring Feasts have to do with the firstborn, the church. And the Fall Feasts have to do with Israel and the second born. At least that’s what we think. Israel sometimes is referred to as a firstborn, so we will see how this plays out.
