Biblical Hebrew Months Explained

Today months are determined by the Gregorian calendar given to use by the world, but the Father says,

They think to change times and seasons“,

This statement is important, because it should cause the true believe to rethink the times (Day, Month, Year) and seasons (New year) we have today.

Here I will answer the question:

How Long is a Biblical Month?

We are all accustomed to the months of the year being called by the following names, with their days in brackets:

January (31 days)
February (28 days)
March (31 days)
April (30 days)
May (31 days)
June (30 days)
July (31 days)
August (31 days)
September (30 days)
October (31 days)
November (30 days)
December (31 days)

I don’t know about you, but this is all too confusing for me.

If you have never thought about this, this post is going to be an eye opener to you.

We all know that we have a 7 day week, but have you ever asked yourself why? If not, you should have.

The 7 day week is biblical and is ascribed in the bible specifically in the book of Genesis.

That being said, we need to study the scriptures to find out what they say about the month.

The first thing we need to do is determine what the word month in the scriptures actually means. To do this I will be using a Hebrew concordance as well as the KJV bible to find the word “month” in the scripture, so we can clearly determine what is meant.

Month can be found in

Genesis 7:11

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Month: Khodesh

the new moon, month, monthly, the first day of the month, the lunar month.

This is just to set the stage, so we know that the bible is referring to a month.

So How Long is a Biblical Month?

I will be using the books of Jubilees to retrieve the Fathers biblical month

Ezekiel 20:12

12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.

Here the Father through Ezekiel makes it clear that Israel had his “Sabbaths”, as sign to distinguish Israel has his people Israel.

Ezekiel 20:19-21

19 I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;

20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God.

21 Notwithstanding the children rebelled against me: they walked not in my statutes, neither kept my judgments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; they polluted my sabbaths: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the wilderness.

It’s also explained in the same chapter that Israel rebelled from the Fathers statutes. This rebelling occurred as early as Israel being brought out of Egyptian captivity.

All this sets the stage as to why the Fathers true months have been lost.

The “Sabbaths” here is key, because you will see as you read on that that Father calculates days months dividable by “Sabbaths” (sevens).

What the Book of Jubilees Says About a Biblical Month

Jubilees 6:23-31

23And on the new moon of the first month, and on the new moon of the fourth month, and on the new moon of the seventh month, and on the new moon of the tenth month are the days of remembrance, and the days of the seasons in the four divisions of the year. These are written and ordained as a testimony for ever.

24And Noah ordained them for himself as feasts for the generations for ever, so that they have become thereby a memorial unto him.

25And on the new moon of the first month he was bidden to make for himself an ark, and on that (day) the earth became dry and he opened (the ark) and saw the earth.

26And on the new moon of the fourth month the mouths of the depths of the abyss beneath were closed. And on the new moon of the seventh month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened, and the waters began to descend into them.

27And on the new moon of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen, and Noah was glad.

28And on this account he ordained them for himself as feasts for a memorial for ever, and thus are they ordained.

29And they placed them on the heavenly tablets, each had thirteen weeks; from one to another (passed) their memorial, from the first to the second, and from the second to the third, and from the third to the fourth.

30And all the days of the commandment will be two and fifty weeks of days, and (these will make) the entire year complete. Thus it is engraven and ordained on the heavenly tablets.

31And there is no neglecting (this commandment) for a single year or from year to year.

Here you see the four new moons, which you might think is talking about the lunar moons? But if we look in scripture the same term referring to new moons, is also the Hebrew word “khodesh”, which is month and not the physical moon, which would be,

yareach yaw-ray’-akh

the moon:–moon. Yrechow.

Verses 29 tells us that there will be 13 weeks (week here meaning month) in a year.

Verse 30 tells us that the “entire year”, is “two and fifty weeks of days” (52 weeks).

If we do the maths i.e.

52 weeks x 7 days = 364 days in a year.

So this shows that the year is exactly 364.

We are told that there are 13 (13 weeks) months in a year, so to find how many days are in a month we have to do some division,

364 days ÷ 13 months (weeks) = 28 days each month

This revelation destroys the use of the lunar moon as a calculation tool for the months, for true believers.

To further confirm that using the moon to calculate the Month is incorrect the book of jubilees says,

Jubilees 6:36

36For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon -how (it) disturbs the seasons and comes in from year to year ten days too soon.

I hope your still following, if you are bless you. Now you know that there are exactly 28 days in a biblical month.
