The heresy of the Enoch Calendar
We have already discussed the lunar calendar and it’s origin in a number of articles. However, we have not yet addressed the topic of the solar calendar – also known as the Enoch calendar. Some groups are promoting the Enoch calendar as the “original” calendar of YHVH. This teaching has a lot of impact on our beliefs. We need to investigate this teaching to understand all the ripple effects that it causes. Let us do a detailed study of the Enoch calendar and the calendar of the Essenes. The more we know about this calendar the better we can decide how Scriptural this really is.
Digging around in Israel
Whenever we travel to Israel for one of the feasts, we always look for something of interest to do. Traveling with our kids also means that we have to look for something that would interest them. However, in a country as rich in culture and history, it is not a difficult task. On one of these trips, we decided to give our kids a better understanding of what archeology is and what value it adds. After some searching, we found the ideal solution. We could join a group of professional archeologists who are busy excavating a site near Jerusalem. We would all join them in a physical dig! We ended up with a very pleasant and enlightening day that I am sure all the kids would remember. Let me share some of this with you.
