There were three major periods in the preparation of the apostles for the work that laid ahead of them: first, they had three-and-a-half years of watching Jesus work; hearing him teach; asking him questions; and, finally, watching him die. This was their first huge preparation period—the three days that Jesus was in the tomb would have been the worst days of their lives. But that all ended with the resurrection.

Then began 40 days of visits by Jesus. They were to be able to ask questions, get answers, and get things clarified that they had not quite had straight before. Here is where they were able to make sense of so many things that Jesus had said and done.

Now, after Jesus’ ascension, they had to somehow attach meaning to everything that had happened. Ten days were not very long, but they could begin to get the bricks into place.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Christian Educational Ministries Weekend Bible Study. It is good to be with you and we thank you for being there and allowing us to make this weekly service possible.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve followed Ron Dart in taking a closer look at the Passover, the resurrection of Christ, and the beginning of the countdown to the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. As we find commanded in Leviticus 23:

From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain…a wave offering of firstfruits to the Lord.

Leviticus 23:15–17 NIV

This weekend concludes those seven weeks, so tonight we’ll join Mr. Dart in examining this time of year and its accompanying harvest—both of grain and of men.

Ronald L. Dart (1934–2016) — People around the world have come to appreciate his easy style, non-combative approach to explaining the Bible, and the personal, almost one-on-one method of explaining what’s going on in the world in the light of the Bible. After retiring from teaching and church administration in 1995 he started Christian Educational Ministries and the Born to Win radio program.
