View Full Version : The Biblical Calendar

Today is the first day of the second month. Today I read Num. 1:1 and 18 where it is written (of course also between 1:1 and 1:18 and so). And tomorrow I read 2 Chron. 3:2. And then there are 11 days where nothing is written about a date, then Num. 9:11 and 2 Chron. 30:15.

And generally written about the second month Ziw: 2 Chron. 30:2,13 and 1 Chron. 27:4 and 1 Kings 6:1,37 and Ezra 3:8.

Have you also made a Biblical Calendar, a moon calendar, like this? I never spoke/wrote to anybody who did. I think it is way of learning too.

Are there maybe any dates connected in the Bible Wheel? I am not familiar with searching with the Bible Wheel (yet).

Do you have a calendar which you can share?

I don't have the Word document anymore, only the papers with lots of writing on it, not for scanning. But you can make one too, a clean one, this way:
Use one page of Word for one month, title the pages with 1. Nisan 2. Ziw etc.
Put general reference of the month above on every page.
Then number 1 to 30 below each other for the days. Leave some space before it to stitch a paper with the current suncalendar dates before it every time: keep it up every month or year. Find a Jewish calendar for when the first day starts (at a new moon).

How to find the general references and biblical dates?
Find a digital Bible you can search through.
The search terms throughout the Bible are:
first month
second month
etc., and:
of the month
and other phrases you can think of,
and the names of the months:
Nisan Abib, Ziw etc.
You might also want to translate these words.
This way you make the 12 pages and print it out and can write notes on it when you read something in other books for example.

It might be a kind of work you like to do? And when you made it you can upload it to Rapidshare for example and give the link here and I can download and compare it. In fact everybody who likes to make it can do it.

Hey NumberX, the Bible Wheel depends on the position of the books of the Bible. I expect the connections between dates and the structure of Scripture will eventually expand as our knowledge grows.

There is a top level link between the Jewish calendar and the Wheel. Passover was held on Nisan the 14th and the book that has the greatest number of references to Passover in the Bible is 2 Chronicles, which is Book 14! See more on the article about Spoke 14 and Passover (http://www.biblewheel.com/wheel/Spokes/Nun_Passover.asp).
