The New Moon Sighting

Scripture never was a formal technical manual on how to figure the calendar. But Scripture does provide all the necessary starting points necessary when used in combination with other scientific facts that will produce the correct calendar.

In ancient times Israel did not depend on calculation to determine the new moon. At the very best some calculations might be done by priests or learned men in one of the larger cities. But in the average hamlet or village there was no precise calculated information to know the exact day of the moon’s appearing like we have nowadays. (D. Gregg)
