The Ancient Calendar

This calendar shows all the new moons from 2009 to 2027. We hope that it will be a blessing to you.
The first day of each month is the New Moon day (evening to evening as in Gen. 1)
1. When calculating the Feast Days (Lev. 23) first find the correct rune sign for the year. For example: The correct sign for 2009 is  (see calendar). Thus, all new moon days in 2009 are represented with this rune sign. 
2. The first   sign after the Vernal Equinox (i.e. Spring ) = 1st. Abib 26th March 2009. This is Yahwehs New Year day.
3. To find when Passover commences count 14 days from  until the evening of the 14th day, (which is also the beginning of the 15th. Day (Numbers 33:3 and they journeyed from Ramses in the 1st month on the 15th day of the 1st month on the morrow after the Passover the sons of Israel started out boldly in the sight of all the Egyptians. ) According to Lev. 23 this will be Passover evening and the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. All of Yahwehs Feasts can be worked out following this principle (i.e. the correct first day of the month) 7th  after the Vernal Equinox = Feast of Trumpets = 18th September (2009)

However, although this works for the majority of years, placing the Feast of Tabernacles after the Autumnal Equinox, and thus in the fall, the year 2010 is peculiarly different. The New Moon in March 2010 falls before the Vernal (Spring) Equinox and so part of the Feast of Tabernacles will therefore be before the Autumnal Equinox and will fall in late summer. The individual will therefore have to discern and make up his own mind before Yahweh as to which New Moon he begins his year with, either the one before (i.e. 15th March) or the one after (i.e. 14th April) the Vernal (Spring) Equinox.

This table is a reconstruction of the earliest written tablet when the ancient rune signs were used, depicting the New Moon times.
It is based on a calendar worked out by Asmund Knutson, a dear friend and minister from Norway.

Alternatively, we are able to obtain the correct times of the New Moon and Sabbath through this link: http://www.sunrisesunset.com/calendar.asp Using this link you can work out your new moons and Sabbath start/finish times for your area:

1. On the website above enter your nearest location (city) and enter month and year. Then click on 'submit'.
2. The first New Moon AFTER THE VERNAL EQUINOX is Yahweh's New Year, the first of Aviv.
3. The Vernal Equinox is the day containing 12 hours daylight and 12 hours night.
4. Look at Sunrise/Sunset times and find the evening to evening day containing 12 hours daylight and 12 hours night. (don't cheat!) Be precise as this is the Vernal Equinox for your area. (Ours is Manchester, Friday 19th. March 2010. We use Manchester U.K. for our location, yours will be different according to where you live. )
5. For 2010 (in our location) for March the New Moon comes before the Vernal Equinox (therefore it is still winter) so we go to the next New Moon which, of course, will be in April. This is April 14th.
6. So, the evening to evening day containing the New Moon is Tuesday evening to Wednesday evening 14th. April after the Vernal Equinox. This is Yahweh's New Year for us (Manchester U.K.)
7. Now this shall be the beginning of months for us in Manchester. Click your mouse on May 2010 at the bottom of the page and click.This will take you to the 2nd. New Moon which is May 14th Thursday to Friday evening.
8. From here on you can use Leviticus 23 to work out all of Yahweh's Feast days up to the 7th. New Moon on October 7th. 2010. (Tishri) The 1st. day of the 7th. Month. Chag Sameach (happy feasting!)
Note: (These times can also be found in any good Diary which includes the Phases of the moon, as these times are worked out from the Astronomical and therefore from the correct New Moon times.)
We hope that these pages have helped you both to understand and work out the times of the Feasts of Yahweh and the weekly sabbaths. May you enter in to the blessing to be found in observing these special times and seasons.

After the destruction of the Second Temple in the year 70 A.D. the Sadducees, who were responsible for the calendar and related times of Yahweh's Festivals/Feast days during most of the Second Temple period, disappeared from the scene and their position was taken over by the Pharisees, who promoted a calendar that was totally different from the authentic one in use in the Temple.
Yahshua agreed with the Samaritan calendar used in His day and never spoke against it. In fact His life and major experiences were timed exactly with it. For example His death (Passover) and resurrection (day of the wave offering) were perfectly in time with it. This is the main reason we know it to be correctly in line with Yahweh's own time scale. John 4:1-42. The Samaritans on Mount Gerizim also kept this same Calendar at the same time. Yahshua spent two days with them after meeting the Samaritan woman at the well. (v.20 "...Our fathers worshipped in this mountain...") Yahshua never spoke against this either. "In the mouth of two witnesses let every truth be established. The Samaritans are still there to this day.
