M. Year of Jubilee

“Every 50 years there is to be a special yearlong Jubilee, beginning on the Day of Atonement with the solemn blowing of trumpets.  It is to be a holy year, like the Sabbatical year, in which the land is to lie fallow.  One of the most remarkable features of the Jubilee is the concept of redemption, in which inheritances are restored, slaves are set free, and property formerly sold may be either repurchased or automatically returned.  It is both a nobly humanitarian provision and a foretaste of even greater spiritual redemption in the era of the Messiah.”

4. Day of Atonement    7th Month, 10th Day  (September-October)
