This study was written by Hillel ben David
Jews count time in a different way then the rest of humanity do and this is most evident in the use of a different calendar. The Gregorian calendar is the one used by most people today. It is the standard calendar used in the business world and is solar-based. The Biblical calendar is used by Jews for prophetic purposes and is lunar and solar-based. Because the Biblical calendar is lunar and solar-based, new months are measured by the phases of the moon. With every new moon there is a new month.
The months in the Biblical calendar are (in order):
Nisan (approx. March-April)
Iyar (approx. April-May)
Sivan (approx. May-June)
Tammuz (approx. June-July)
Av (approx. July-August)
Ellul (approx. August-September)
Tishre (approx. September-October)
Heshvan (approx. October-November)
Kislev (approx. November-December)
Tevet (approx. December-January)
Shevat (approx. January-February)
Adar (approx. February-March)
What makes the history in Biblical festivals more real and vibrant than the history celebrated in the festivals of other nations? The festivals are markers to relive the events of the past and prophecy about the future. Its history tends to ripple itself throughout the ages in each generation, as we relive the events being remembered and its future consequences. We shall see examples of how the historical events in the Jewish calendar have an effect on the observance, the spirit and meaning of these prophetic festivals on the seasons in which they are celebrated.
