Lev 23:9-14 (ISV) Then YAHUWAH spoke to Moses, "Tell the Israelis that when you enter the land that I'm about to give you and gather its produce, you are to bring a sheaf from the first portion of your harvest to the priest, who will offer the sheaf in YAHUWAH's presence for your acceptance. The priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath. "On the day you wave the sheaf, you are to offer a one year old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering in YAHUWAH's presence. Also present a meal offering of two tenths of a measure of fine flour mixed with olive oil as an offering made by fire to YAHUWAH, a pleasing aroma. "Now as to a drink offering, you are to present a fourth of a hin of wine. You are not to eat bread, parched grain, or fresh grain until that day when you've brought the offering of your God. This is to be an eternal ordinance throughout your generations, wherever you live."
Col 1:18 (ISV) He is also the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he himself might have first place in everything.
1Co 15:20-22 (ISV) But at this moment the Messiah stands risen from the dead, the first one offered in the harvest of those who have died. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also came through a man. For as in Adam all die, so also in the Messiah will all be made alive.
Heb 12:23-24 (ISV) to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to a judge who is the God of all, to the spirits of righteous people who have been made perfect, to Yahushua, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better message than Abel's.
