Apples and Honey

Tonight we celebrate Rosh Hashana. Isn't it curious that the most noticeable tradition we have concerning Rosh Hashanah is dipping an apple in honey?

This represents a desire to have a fruitful and sweet year, as if we could eat our way to these desired ends. The choice of apple is suspicious, since it was the apple that caused the need for repentance in the first place. Yes, you rightly corrected me, it wasn't the apple, but the people who ate the apple that put us in this situation.

Then there is the honey. In America we have mostly bee honey, but in Israel, biblical honey (d'vash) is date honey. So we dip and eat as we pray for a sweet and fruitful year. Contrast that with the dipping and eating six months ago at Passover. Then we dipped our matzah into bitter herb so we can identify with the pain of slavery to sin. That was then and this is now.

Then we were memorializing the spring feasts which picture the first coming of Yeshua (the Suffering Servant). Now we are memorializing the fall feasts which picture the second coming of Yeshua (the Reigning King). The two comings are as different as bitter herb and sweet honey. Savor the difference. Savor the Savior.
