What about a Bible Calendar?
by Ruth Fischer Bennett
Some people say that there isn’t enough evidence to demonstrate clearly any calendar that is mentioned in the Bible. Some people say that the calendar used by the Jews is “the same one God delivered to Moses.” Then there are others who propose a great variety of Bible calendars. It seems that if there is any possible position on this subject, someone already has it staked out. What provoked all this controversy? Sincere objections to the Jewish calendar, that’s what. That calendar is one of the legacies of the Pharisees that is disturbing the various Sabbath and Holy Day keeping Churches of God today.
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ had a great deal to say to his disciples and those who desire to follow Him warning about the attitude of the Pharisees and the traditions promulgated by them, which they used to contravene God’s written instructions. The attitude He described was that of twisting the Word of God in order to appear to be righteous.
