The Gospel accounts of Jesus' death, burial, resurrection, and ascension.

Over the years I've listened to everyone from clergy to laymen explain how these Gospel accounts do not agree with each other.  When examined closely The Holy Bible is in perfect agreement with itself.  Minor errors may exist in the translations of various words and phrases but these can be easily reconciled.

The Solar Calendar

The Solar Calendar vs Other Calendars 


This is a presentation of the Annual Calendar I believe The LORD issued in

Exodus 12:1-2; 13:4 


As with other calendars the Solar calendar can be arranged day by day and month by month but here it is represented by a pie chart. The first day of the year is 1 Abib which is the Spring Equinox.

4) The Jewish Sacred Year begins on the 1st day of the 1st month, Nisan, and is determined by counting the days since the previous sacred year and then posting a watch for the New moon. This date has also been determined by watching for the New moon at the time of the barley harvest.
