The Renewed Moon Sighting Israel – Tebeth

There is an expected possible sighting of a renewed moon in the Land of Israel, 08/12/2018 at around 17:32 hrs at a luminosity of 1.6% with an angular distance of 14:39:04:05 degrees with the sun which is sufficient for a guaranteed sighting according to Yallop criteria.

If by reason of inclement weather and the sighting is not confirmed by 2 witnesses on 29 Kislev, Saturday, 08/12/2018, Sunday 09/12/2018 will be 30 Kislev and regardless, Monday, 10/12/2018 will then be 1 Tebeth, as no more than 30 days can be in any one calendar month.

Cycle No: 125

The next Jubilee will be 2035 – 2036 . . . (please see The Scroll)

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)
