    Determining the Passover Dates

    [This is a summary from The Torah Calendar. For more details, see The Torah Calendar.] Scripture tells us to hold the Passover on the 14th day of the first Hebrew month. Contrary to what the rabbis say, this occurs in the spring. It takes place once the barley in the land of Israel has become aviv (i.e., matured to the Continue Reading →

    Passover in the Renewed Covenant (2 of 5)

    In the last chapter we saw how the original Passover helped prepare the children of Israel to leave Egypt (i.e., the world), and go to the land of Israel. We also saw how Shaul tells us the festivals are still prophetic shadow pictures of coming events. Because of these things, we still see the Passover as a rehearsal for leaving Continue Reading →

    Passover in the Original Covenant (1 of 5)

    At the time of this writing, Nazarene Israel is in the dispersion. Since neither the Tanach (“Old” Covenant) nor the Brit Chadasha (Renewed Covenant) address what to do in the dispersion, it can be difficult to know what to do. Matters are made worse by the rabbinical traditions, most of which directly contradict Yahweh’s words. In order to understand how Continue Reading →
