The Biblical Festivals Calendar 


The Biblical Festivals Calendar

Most Christians, who observe the festivals of Leviticus 23, use the Hebrew or Jewish Calendar, in determining when to celebrate these feast days. The days of the months in the Hebrew calendar and the Western or Gregorian calendar, used by most nations today, do not always agree with each other. In both calendars, the festivals fall during the same seasons of the year. In the Hebrew Calendar, the spring festivals of Passover and Unleavened Bread occur in the first month of the Hebrew year. Pentecost takes place in the third month of the Hebrew Calendar, which is in late spring or early summer. The festivals of the seventh month (Trumpets, Atonement, Booths) happen in the fall season.  In the Southern Hemisphere, Passover & Unleavened Bread occur during the fall season, with Pentecost happening in late fall or early winter.  Concluding with the festivals of the seventh month of the being observed in the spring.

 In the Bible days start and end in the evening or at sundown. The Book of Genesis describes the days of creation with the term, “there was evening and there was morning,” then the descriptive words “the first day,” or “the second day,” all the way to seventh day (Genesis 1:4-5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31; 2:1-2).
