It is the year of freedom.For instance in the bible, at the year of Jubilee all Israelites who had sold themselves into slavery were set free, and all land that had been sold reverted to its original owners.This meant that no Israelite could ever be in permanent slavery, nor could any Israelite permanently lose his inheritance. It was also a year of agricultural rest as there would be no farming during this year. God promised to abundantly bless the crops and orchards, and the people were to rest from their labor. It was a year to focus on God and not farming, money and social problems.
