Is it possible to see a list of the 30 Jubilee dates converted from the 360 day calendar into our existing B.C. calendar system.
Many thanks, Gideon.
The jubilees work with either the 360 calendar or the regular calendar. Both are used in the bible.
Counting from the exodus, or better ---from when God intended His people to enter the promised land a year later on Pentecost 1445 BC--- when we count 30 jubilees later we come to the 30th year of Christ.
A jubilee is 49 years (7 x 7 years), with the 50th being the jubilee year. The 49-year cycles are uninterupted and keep up with the 7 year cycles wherein the land was to lay fallow. Thus, 1446 BC + 49 years = 1397 BC with 1396 BC being the Jubilee year, and 1348 BC was the second jubilee with 1347 BC as the Jubilee year (aut. to aut.) and so forth to AD 25 and 26. (And there is more to this as to exact days and all that, but this is the basics.)
However, the Iraelites broke that covenant and wondered 40 years in the desert so that in 1406 BC they entered the Promised land, and this became when the actual jubilee cycles commenced. Thus, there is a 40-year gap between the jubilee's that God intended, which ends 30 cycles later at Christ's 30th year when He commenced His half-seven-year ministry. This means that there is a 40 year gap 30 jubilees from 1406 BC to AD 65 and 66 BC. (AD 25/26 + 40 years = AD 65/66.) This agrees perfectly with the prophetic pattern, because this same 40 years is the generation that Jesus spoke of when He said that this generation would not pass away until all these things are fulfilled. (This statement refers to two different things, by the way. It refers to the literal next 40 years --- a generation--- and it refers to a race of people, namely the Israelites.)
It happens that 40 years after Jesus began His ministry in AD 26 was when the seige of Jerusalem occured by the Romans. It lasted about three-and-a-half years which means that the city fell about 40 years after Jesus' death as well (AD 30 to AD 70). This is most remarkable!!!
Hence, the 40-years wondering in the desert by Israel for their unbelief for breaking the old covenant of Moses (by their unbelief) occurs again 30 Jubilees later (1470/1471 years) when again Israel through unbelief reject their Messiah and the New Covenant, and are expelled from the land. This is totally awesome!
1446 BC (old covenant of Moses) + 30 jubilees = New Covenant of Jesus!
1446-1406 BC plus 30 jubilees equals AD 26 to AD 66 (both equal 40 years unbelief.)
(See book of Hebrews 3.)
1406 BC (enter Promised land) + 30 Jubilees = expulsion from Promised Land
(and destruction of Jerusalem, the anti-thesis of Mount Sinai.
How awesome is our God!
And the details to this are even more amazing. (See website).
And the dates that are used are those commonly held by modern evangelical scholars, even though they themselves are unaware of these awesome patterns, to my knowledge.
As said, this pattern holds true for both the 360 calendar
of the prophets and by the regular solar/lunar calendar of the Jews. The bible mentions both.
And this is just one tiny pattern! Just one!!! And the details of this one pattern are even more awesome. I have seen myself reel to the ground under the weight of what I was comprehending in the numbers. If you are not reeling than it is because you are not comprehending!
God is awesome!
It is also interesting to note that the important 70th Jubilee spans from AD 1985/1986 + 40 years to AD 2025/2026. Will another three-and-a-half or seven year period of great consequence again occure from AD 2026-2033? Is this the "last generation."
I can't resist!
1446/1445 BC plus 36 (6 x 6) generations of 40 years (or 360 x 4 years -- note that 360 again!) comes to 6/5 BC, which is the birth of Christ.
The next 40 years of the wandering in the desert wherein "all that generation died" therefore marks the generation of Christ forwarded the same 36 generations (36 x 40 or 360 x 4) from 1406 BC.
Thus, the generation of Christ is in parallel with the generation that came out of Egypt. ("Out of Egypt I called my Son.") This agrees with the ancient prophecy of Isa 53:8 "By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation
, who among them considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due?"
Is it any wonder that men are without excuse for not believing!

Heb 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, even Jesus;
Heb 3:2 who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also was Moses in all his house.
Heb 3:3 For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that built the house hath more honor than the house.
Heb 3:4 For every house is builded by some one; but he that built all things is God.
Heb 3:5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken;
Heb 3:6 but Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we hold fast our boldness and the glorying of our hope firm unto the end.
Heb 3:7 Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye shall hear his voice,
Heb 3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,
Heb 3:9 Where your fathers tried me by proving me, And saw my works forty years.
Heb 3:10 Wherefore I was displeased with this generation, And said, They do always err in their heart: But they did not know my ways;
Heb 3:11 As I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.
Heb 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest haply there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God:
Heb 3:13 but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called To-day; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin:
Heb 3:14 for we are become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm unto the end:
Heb 3:15 while it is said, To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
Heb 3:16 For who, when they heard, did provoke? nay, did not all they that came out of Egypt by Moses?
Heb 3:17 And with whom was he displeased forty years? was it not with them that sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
Heb 3:18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that were disobedient?
Heb 3:19 And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
