UPCOMING BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (2019):

The dates for the spring feasts below are based on the assumptions that the aviv barley will be found before and when the new crescent moon of the first month is sighted March 7 in Jerusalem. The dates will be updated after 7th of March if there will be changes. Remember to wait for the new moon update also in the seventh month to know for sure.

 

Holidays in the first month:

If new moon is seen March 7th:
1st Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset March 21th to sunset March 22th
7th Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset March 27th to sunset March 28th

Pentecost/Weeks (Shavuot): Sunset May 11th to sunset May 12th, 2019 (If counting 50 days from the morning after the weekly sabbath)

If new moon is seen March8th:

1st Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset 22th to sunset 23th
7th Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset 28th to sunset 29th

Pentecost/Weeks (Shavuot): Sunset May 11th to sunset May 12th, 2019 (If counting 50 days from the morning after the weekly sabbath)

 

It there is no Aviv found by the end of the 12th month there will be added a 13th month. The dates will then be by moon sighting 6th of april:

1st Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset 20th of April to sunset 21th of April
7th Day of Unleavened Bread – Sunset 26th of April to sunset 27th of April.

Pentecost/Weeks (Shavuot): Sunset 8th of June to sunset 9th of June, 2019 (If counting 50 days from the morning after the weekly sabbath)

 

The next holy days will be in the seventh month (1st, 10th, 15th and 23rd).

 

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.
So every day start the evening before the day displayed on the calendar. There are several different ways people count to Pentecost.

We don’t think there are any accurate numbers on what year it is according to the Biblical calendar.
Jesus/Yeshua was most likely born in  5BCE according to the Julian calendar (Herod died in the spring of the year 4 BCE) or in spring 5BCE/ 4BCE .
He was most likely born in either the spring or in the fall and not December.
