Holidays Celebrated by Y'shua (Jesus)

And you shall observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end. ~Exodus 34:22

Shavuot is the Hebrew word for weeks. It takes place 7 weeks from the 2nd day of Passover, or exactly 50 days after Passover. The Greek word for the holiday is Pentecost, which means 50. 10 Commandments
It is the spring, or wheat, harvest festival. The first fruits, Bikkurim, were brought into the temple in decorated baskets.
It was a time when His people were required to give back to Him. And as it is impossible, to out give God, He gave even more on that day. It was on that day that God gave Moses the law on Mount Sinai. It was also on that day, many years later, that God sent His Holy Spirit to fall upon 120 disciples who were praying in Jerusalem.

Shavuot Traditions:
Staying up all night studying the Torah. Decorating houses and synagogues with flowers and vines. Eating dairy products like cheese blintzes and cheese cake. Reading the Megillat Ruth
