Happy Biblical New Year!

On the 1st month of the year, on the 14th day of the month, the LORD's Passover begins at twilight.

-Moses to the children of Israel

Fine blog readers, since Passover is the 14th day of the 1st month of the Biblical year, and since Passover falls on April 9th this year (April 10th on the agricultural calendar), that means today, March 26th 2009, marks the first day of the first month in the calendar God used in the Scripture to mark times and seasons – a new year according to Scripture.

The Jewish calendar will call this day Nisan 1, 5769.

Happy Biblical New Year!
