Climate Of The Holy Land
by Wayne Blank
The climate permits a profusion of agricultural produce, with oranges and olives (see The Olive Tree) along the coastal plains, figs (see The Fig Tree) and grapes (see Fruit Of The Vine) slightly inland, and grain crops such as Barley in the hill country. A number of the Parables Of Jesus Christ used agricultural analogies, as does much of Prophecy. Christians are even referred to as the firstfruits of salvation (see Pentecost). Most rainfall occurs from November to January (e.g. Ezra 10:9), and then a "latter rain" in March (e.g. Joel 2:23).
