Happy Biblical New Year

Although the date on our Gregorian calendar will be different each year, at sunset on Friday, April 5th, 2019, also known as Nisan 1 or Abib 1 in the Hebrew calendar, the New Year has officially sprung! According to the Bible, the Biblical New Year begins in Spring. Makes sense considering all the new life blossoming in Spring.

Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” (NKJV)

Scripture then goes on to describe the events of Passover and the Hebrews/Israelites miraculous exodus from Egypt by crossing the Red Sea (see Exodus 12-14).

Deuteronomy 16:1 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to the LORD your God, for in the month of Abib  the LORD your God brought you out of Egypt by night.” (NKJV) See Exodus 13:3-4 also.
