The new Torah Year of 6008 is here and Passover quickly approaches. As we know, Passover commemorates the first Passover of Israel coming out of Egypt and finds it’s fulfillment in the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. However, there have been other lesser known Passovers that are both instructive and inspiring to consider. Do you know what happened during the first Passover of Joshua/Y’shua and the first generation of Israel to enter the Promised Land? How about the year the Temple was built? One of my favorites was the Passover called by King Josiah/YoshiYah that was held after Israel had LOST THE TORAH – yes, the Torah was actually lost and forgotten – and then found again! And how about the “revival” and Passover of Hezekiah/Y’chizqiYah that was greater than any Passover of any of the kings of Israel? Do you want an example of “grace” in the “Old Testament”? Then you will love this story! In this program we also answer the question: Is Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread together 7 days or 8 days long? Is Passover to be commemorated on the evening of the 14th or the 15th of Aviv? What do the Scriptures say? What does the priest, Josephus, say was the practice in the first century? Listen to this program and get into a Passover state of mind.
The Torah Calendar New Year will be starting during the week of this program. We have been hearing questions related to the Torah New Year from listeners.
- When does the Torah New Year actually start?
- How do we know when a new year starts?
- Why does it matter?
- Why are there 13 months in some Torah years?
- Is this actually Year 5768 or Year 6008?
- Why the difference between those two year dates?
- What’s a Shmita Year and why should that matter to me?
Talk about dates is often thought of as boring. Not this time! Answers to these questions will take you on an exciting journey into the heart of our Father. By knowing what He has planned for this coming year you can move in those plans with Him!
