The Calendar For AD 2017-2018
With Months of Historical Interest

There are two charts are listed for each month. The first is the Biblical Calendar, and the second is the Modern Gregorian Calendar, Julian, or proleptic Julian Calendar. Both charts correspond to each other. That is, you can overlay one on the other to find the equivalent dates. Here is a basic legend to get you started. (More complete details on the codes and format will be found near the end of this page.)

 ↑ = New Moon Sighted & the following day is labeled 'New Moon'             
 Sabbaths are shaded: █████▀▀▀▀▀ (sunset to sunset)

Calendar For AD 2017, Year of Creation 61561

There is always a small chance that a new moon might not be seen according to calculations and the calendar may change by 1 day.2

Example: Passover this year is listed as the 14th and 15th of the Biblical Month. At sunset on the 14th it is shaded white to sunset on the 15th. And then at sunset on the 16th it is shaded white again until sunset on the 17th. This is the weekly Sabbath. There are two Sabbaths with a day between, an annual one on Nisan 14/15 and the weekly Sabbath on Nisan 16/17. The 21st day of the month is also tagged 7th ULB, i.e. the 7th day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. This last day of the feast begins at sunset on the 20th of Nisan and ends at sunset on the 21st of Nisan.

Match these dates with the corresponding Roman calendar below. Sunset on Nisan 14 corresponds to sunset on April 12th.

Also note the counting to Shavuot (Pentecost). The 16th day of Nisan is tagged 16-0-1. 16 is for the 16th day of the month. The 0 stands for the number of Sabbaths counted after Passover. The last digit is the number of days counted after Passover.


Calendar for the 1st Month, Spring 2017

Bad weather might prevent the moon from being seen. This is unlikely, but since Adar II will already be 30 days long it will not matter. The new moon will be proclaimed regardless of verified sighting.

The Julian/Gregorian Parallel Calendar
 a. Roman Planetary Week Marked in Biblical Order
 b. Epoch from midnight to midnight for days
 c. 3 letter month name and day No.
 d. The count 1 to 365 or 366 of the day of the year.
    1 marks the day of the spring equinox/tequfah if the
    equinox falls before sunset.
============================================================================
Shavuot Counting
 a. In months I-III in the charts the days from Aviv/Nisan 15
    are counted.
 b. The numbers come in threes formatted #-#-#, so for Nisan 16
    the count looks like 16-0-1 or sometimes 16-1-1 if Nisan 16
    happens to be on the Shabbat. The first number is simply the
    day of the month. The second number is the number of complete
    weekly Shabbats encountered during the count, up to the total
    of seven (cf. Lev. 23:15-16). This number increments every
    time a weekly Shabbat is crossed. The third number is the day
    count from 1 to 50, and it increments by one with every day.		

                 Visibility/Non Visibility Ratings:
                   A: Easily visible
                   B: Visible under perfect conditions
                   C: Unlikely without optical aid
                   D: Will need optical aid
                   E: Not visible with a telescope
                   F: Not visible** q < -0.293
                   G: Not visible AL <= 8; AL < Danjon Limit 7 deg + 1 deg parallax
                   Z: The moon set before sunset.

**  Some of Yallop's 'F' ratings fail to be below Danjon Limit, hence
    I have added new rating G which explicitly compares AL to the Danjon Limit

Calculation of the Spring Tequfah (Equinox)

This program calculates the spring equinox in the following manner. In simple terms when the north going sun first sets due west or north of due west then that day is the spring tequfah.

In technical terms the azimuth of the sun is compared with 270 degrees (west) at the moment of sunset on the test date. If the azimuth is greater than or equal to 270 degrees then the day is determined to be the end of the old year and the beginning of the new.

This method is the most ancient method which was employed by megalithic observatories to determine the seasons. Since this observational method allows refraction to affect the result the spring equinox is often a day before the the modern geometrical definition of the equinox. The ancient equinox method may be observed. The modern geometrical equinox has to be calculated by complex calculations that were generally beyond the ability of ancient man before the modern age. When the Christian and Jewish Calendars departed from this method of determining the Tequfah, their respective calendars miss-calcualted the spring equinox by a week or more because their calculations of the length of a year were too imprecise.

This program pre-calculates the calendar, but it does so in a manner that simulates a purely observational method of determining dates. New moons are sighted by witnesses and the motion of the sun is observed to determine the seasons. There are no artificial rules, no postponements, no Rabbinical enactments. Since this calendar uses a purely observational method, it is the only calendar method that is good for calculation of Scripture dates. It is not a calendar method unique to this author. The majority of Jewish and Christian scholars will agree that the ancient methods are implemented here.

I explain the details in the Scroll of Biblical Chronology. The reason that historians and astronomers are unable to synchronize their respective disciplines for 2nd Millennium BC dates is because they have failed to take account of Joshua's long day. When this is done, the Egyptian Lahun Papyri dates align as well as Akkadian, Ur-III, Assyrian, Amorite Babylonian, and Chinese eclipse records. The simple explanation is that the rotation of the earth was locked with the sun at noon on July 26th, 1592 BC for 12 hours. This changes the tracks of solar eclipses and the side of the world lunar eclipses were visible on. Once that is factored into the astronomical programs eclipse tracks before this date are where they are supposed to be.

The spoils will go to the victorious --- anyone willing to really believe the Scripture. To the one who overcomes falsehood, both religious and atheist. The sun and the moon bear witness.

Notes:

1.^The date of creation is 4139 BC (6156-2017 = 4139). This exceeds the date computed by Ussher (4004 BC) by 135 years (4139 - 4004 = 135). We may account for the difference by two errors committed by Ussher. The first is that he counts the year Adam was age 1 as the first year of the world. This neglects the fact that a person is not age 1 until after he or she has lived a whole year. This accounts for 1 of the years of error in Ussher's chronology. The second error is that Ussher shortened the Judges chronology by 134 years by failing to realize that the 480 years in 1 Kings 6:1 did not take account of the years foreign nations oppressed Israel. Martin Antsey restored 114 of the missing years in the Romance of Bible Chronology, but neglected 20 years of a second Philistine oppression, which I have restored in The Scroll of Biblical Chronology.

The Jewish date for this year (AD 2017) is 5777. It is 379 years too short (6156-5777 = 379). The error can be accounted for as follows. 162 years were deleted from the Persian period. 60 years were deleted from the Terah-Abraham connection. 134 years were deleted from the Judges. 26 years were deleted from the Amaziah-Uzziah connection. This adds up to 382 years. 3 years too many were added to the Jehoshaphat-Athaliah period in the independent reign of Jehoram of Judah. 382-3 = 379. See The Sequence of Events in the Old Testament by Eliezer Shulman.

2.^It is my practice to disregard lack of new moon reports under two conditions: 1. inclement weather in Israel, and 2. lack of willing or sufficient observers in Israel. What remains are those cases where it is statistically unlikely that a new moon will be seen under good conditions. But sometimes observers do see new moons under good conditions. In those cases Q2 is followed by the letter C, which indicates this possibility. I judge this to be a good rule to follow until the Temple and Priesthood are restored and they are setting dates according to actual new moon sightings as reported in traditional literature and agreeing with Scripture. Following this rule will also go a great way toward reducing the stress of not knowing the dates as correct as we can make them in advance, and also allow a long range forecast without too many uncertainties. It is my ruling that if we are following the sighted new moon then at least in principle we are correct, and that if we end up incorrect by one day that this is an event that is sometimes expected and we should not be upset about it. It is just the way the moon is. It is the doctrine of the Rabbis that everyone must agree exactly and observe the exact same dates, and if you do not then you are rebelling against their authority. This is not so, and it is not Scriptural. The Catholic Church behaves the same way in respect to Easter dates. And because both Rabbi and Roman Priests love control more than truth and love, their calendars are corrupted by the principle of controlling everyone. That they succeed in this goal does not mean they are closer to the truth. So if you observe a day late or a day early and are faithful to Messiah, then we are still brothers and sisters.

3.^Old Note Edited to remove last years dependent data

...

In the future, it may be that a restored Temple priesthood accepts reports from so far away due to modern communications and so determines the Temple services. Perhaps this will happen on a global scale in the Millennial Kingdom. I do not know the rules. In meantime, what was historically acceptable in the first century should be good enough for us. But this is not to say an expanded observation area will be unacceptable in the future.

I do not regard local observation of the new moon as unlawful in the circumstances nor feast dates dependent on local observation. However for the reasons just stated, I prefer centralized observation in Israel, and calculate accordingly. As long as the principle of a visible new moon is kept (Gen. 1:14) I do not regard this as a sectarian issue. This holds so long as those with a local observation preference in the exile do not censure us with a centralized observation preference and the reverse. When the exile ends these divergent preferences will disappear since the location will be unified.

The LDL (Lundar date line) is the boundary on a lunar visibility map between those who can see the moon and those who cannot. Typically, it is a parabola like curve, but by experiment it is not a smooth curve due to local conditions. It may be that this boundary goes down through Israel and that some west of it see the moon and some east of it do not. Historically, in this situation, reports taken from the west side of the LDL were accepted for the new moon within a reasonable distance of foot travel across the LDL, not more than 100 miles each way. The idea is that that someone had to see the new moon, and not everyone.

If the LDL is far to the west however, it may be argued that for the moon a local 14th of the moon on the west side of the LDL (lunar date line) is the same day as the 14th of the moon observed a day later on the east side of the LDL (the sameness of the solar day will differ). The situation is not unlike the IDL (International Date Line). Those just to the west of the line (New Zealand) observe a day earlier than those just east of the line (British Columbia) in respect to the Sabbath day. The point is that the IDL is based on the sun and the LDL is based on the moon. They therefore have different properties. The sameness of a lunar date should not be confused with the sameness of a solar day, that is the same lunar date may be on two solar days.

What is the definition of a schism? Or sectarianism? There indeed must be sects, because someone is right and someone is wrong. But are all differences schismatic? All differences are not schismatic or divisive. The Catholic Church and the Rabbis both decided that all differences from their respective opinions were schismatic. And therefore they bullied everyone else into conforming to their opinion. Eventually they adopted a false doctrine and became bullies about it also. Easter for the Catholics and a conjunction based calendar for the Rabbis. At first they were in the minority, but because of their tactics of making all differences matters of schism they succeeded in controlling the majority, the majority which fears name-calling.
