About the calender:
We start every month at new moon, every new year is determined by the barley and new moon. Every biblical day starts at sunset and ends the next sunset.
For instance, the 1st day of the third month start at sunset May 27 and end sunset May 28. So every day start the evening before the day displayed on the calendar. There are several different ways people count to Pentecost. We choose the old Jewish method of counting from the weekly Sabbath during the feast of unleavened bread. That is because this method is the only way that can match the direction of counting 50 days AND a complete 7 weeks (7 sabbaths) as written in the law.
If it landed on the same day of the same month every year there would be no need to count and the Bible gives the exact date on all the other feasts.
If you follow the other method of counting from the day after the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened day it will land on the 6th day of the third month. We are not completely sure and that's why we mention both ways. We don't think there are any accurate numbers on what year it is according to the Biblical calendar. We roughly suggest this year (2017/2018) can be either the year 5986, 5989, 6022 or something completely different.
Jesus/Yeshua was most likely born on September 5 BCE according to the Julian calendar (Herod died in the spring of the year 4 BCE).
