"Re: Jean Stepnoski, The Feast of Trees"

Dear Doves:
My thanks to Jean Stepnoski for the kind remark and a significant message about the Feast of Trees.
Through a Google search, I confirmed that Tu B' Shvat is observed as the official "Birthday" and "New Year" of trees.
I believe there is a profound spiritual meaning.
Tree represents Life and Prosperity, but our Lord was cursed on a tree.
Yeshua was not only the Sacrificial Lamb of Passover but also the Scape Goat(Azazel) of the Atonement, another word,
the Son of G-d took all sins and curses in His body on a tree, and removed them forever so that we can have the New Eternal Life.
        "He himself bore our sins in his body on a tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness.."
                                                                                                                          (1 Peter 2:24)
For this significant reason, it's a possiblility that Tu B' Shvat could be the day of the Blessed Hope.
See you soon,
