The Feast of First-fruits, on the 17th day of Nisan, was a celebration of the harvest, when a sheaf representing the very first of the harvest was waved before the Lord, as a symbolic gesture that dedicated the coming harvest to Him.
Jesus rose from the dead on the Feast of First-fruits.
The Apostle Paul said: 'But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept.' (1 Corinthians 15:20,23)
