“The First Fruits,” oil painting ca. 1760, by John Valentine Haidt (1700-1780) is one of the most interesting paintings in the collection of the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem. It shows a group of Moravian converts from different nations, gathered as the “first fruits” (Rev. 14:4) around the throne of Christ in heaven (Rev. 7:9). Haidt painted earlier versions of this motif in 1747 (today in Zeist, Netherlands) and in 1749 (today in Herrnhut, Germany).
