"Correct Shavuot / Pentecost is on the 29th day of the 4th Hebrew month, which is July 30/31st in 2011"

 

Hi Doves,

 

The correct Pentecost (Shavuot) according to Scripture falls on the 29th day of the 4th Hebrew month, which in 2011 falls on July 30/31st.

 

In Bible times, there was no Gregorian calendar.  There were three types of days: work days, Sabbaths and New Moon days. All Sabbaths fell on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th day of the Hebrew month.

 

Philo kept the Lunar Sabbath. Check here: http://lunarsabbath.us/id3.html and here: http://lunarsabbath.info/id3.html

 

Blessings,
