"To Susanna Petrie - Re: Lunar Sabbath and the Passover"
In response to: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/apr2011/susannap419.htm
Yes, that’s exactly what the Creation Calendar website says.
Nisan 16th is always the day after the Sabbath (first day of the week)
and therefore Firsfruits.
[By the way, “3 days” or “3 days and 3 nights” in ancient Hebrew usage
doesn’t mean 72 hours like we mean nowadays, it just means any set of 3
consecutive days, be them complete or incomplete. So Nisan 14th is day
# 1 (even if the event took place in the last minutes of Day # 1),
Nisan 15th is day # 2 , Nisan 16 is day # 3. That method of referring
to blocks of time is also known as “inclusive reckoning”.]
Creation Calendar website also says that Pentecost falls on the 29th
day of the 4th Hebrew month (later named “Tammuz”), which in 2011 falls
on July 31st.
