I haven’t researched any of this. Yet I was wondering recently if there is any historic evidence of the Year of Jubilee being practiced. I’ve not seen mention of it (being actually practiced as opposed to just instructed) in scripture, yet I’d expect some record of it (if done) in Jewish writings. Same goes for the cycle of Sabbath years (letting the land rest from planting) every seven years, that you just referenced, there is no mention of that being practiced in scripture that I can recollect either. But I’d expect that this would (or could) have been done during periods of Israel’s higher dedication to God. Have you seen historical evidence in Jewish writings for either of these being practiced?
