Contrast the Jewish calendar with the Gregorian calendar. In our calendar the reaping would begin at the end of May or early June, halfway through the year and go until the end of October, the tenth month of the year. Our big ingathering feast where we appear together to give thanks to God is at the end of the 11th month, and then one of our two holiest days is right at the end of the 12th month. The calendar we are using, the Gregorian calendar knows it will come to an end when Jesus is born (the man child is caught up to heaven) but for the Jewish calendar that is not the end, that is simply the end of the beginning.
