Professor Elior will be showing us the four calendar issues that were prevalent in the days leading up to the destruction of the Second Temple in the New Testament timeframe. We will hear about the Book of Jubilees related to the solar calendar of Genesis 1:14-16. We will also learn about the divine purpose of the Moon, the biblical definition of Rosh Chodesh (the “New Moon”), the group referred to as the Essenes, as well as the lunar calendar of the Pharisees; where it came from, and why it is the de facto calendar of Judaism today.
