According to the Hebrew Calendar 10/14/2023 is 29th of Tishrei, 5784 but an annular solar eclipses can only take place when: It is New Moon. At the same time, the Moon is at (or very near) a lunar node, so the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun are aligned in a straight (or nearly straight) line. Wouldn't the month be considered the month of Cheshvan - חשון חדש ? ...
Has anyone checked to see whether there is any significance to this apparent discrepancy?
There is currently a suggestion that the Hebrew calendar is off. If it is true, and if the date difference above is significant, the question is begged: is this how much it is off?
That is to say: if the New Moon celebration is supposed to be on an actual new moon, and it isnt, is it possible that the entire calendar could be off by the same number of days?
It might have really been an important day behind the scenes.
Hi, Gary! Yes, I think you are right, and seeing the vast differences between the two presidencies on either side of that day makes me wonder if perhaps this seven-year span between the eclipses is symbolic of both the 7 years of plenty and the 7 years of famine from the story of Joseph, like a condensed version--a halved recipe, so to speak. Could it possibly also be a "type" of the coming 7-year Tribulation? Not sure, of course... Just pondering...

EnochWalked: It does feel like the very notion of time is being messed with, like there's a battle between the days being shortened and the days being lengthened. Perhaps Covid lockdowns have changed weather patterns? Very coincidental timing otherwise.

EnochWalked: It's really difficult to define a "neutral" stance, because children don't need to know that their teacher has a homosexual partner, but should be able to hear that a teacher believes in Jesus. Silence is itself a religious/political position.

SeekerofTruth: Gary, I don't use google so I'm not sure how to post here. You might want to check John 19:31 as he does mention that crucifixion day was a high day.

Hischild: Encoh Walked, I am in customer service and when I tell people the date, they say, already? Time is going so fast. My standard reply is to smile and say, Yes, it is because we are getting close to the end of time/this age and Jesus is coming back soon.
