AND THEN THERE IS THIS TO CONSIDER

The 49th Hebrew year of each 49 Hebrew year Jubilee cycle must be evenly divided by 7 because the 49th year is always a multiple of 7 ie. (7X7=49). The 50th Jubilee Year is the year following the 49th year of the cycle therefore the Jubilee Year is always 49 years + 1 year = 50th year Jubilee.

The year 2015 is Hebrew year 5775 divided evenly by 7 = 825 thus qualifies for a 49th year.

The year 2016 is Hebrew year 5776 which is then 825 +1 = 826 thus qualifies for a Jubilee Year

The year 2017 is Hebrew year 5777 which does NOT qualify for either a 49th year or a 50th year.
