    Dear Sir, I am in total agreement re your article on you tube re the lunar calendar…and was pleased to know I am not alone !!! I have a couple of queries/ questions,though, please?
    1) There must be varied ‘ lunar calendar MONTHS’ – indeed, from every day of the year , depending on where one is in the world???? The moon is not in the same phase everywhere at the same time. (Or am I being stupid?)
    2) If Nisan 14..Passover, falls on a Wednesday, then 4 days earlier…the Nisan 10 is a 7th day Sabbath. le Exodus ch 12 v 3 tells us that the sacrificial lambs would be selected (bought?) and kept for the 4 days. How would that work (! ) according to the Sabbath rules ??? …((Or did that only apply to that particular occasion in Exodus ch 12 v 3 in the wilderness – and no shops !!!)
    I get asked to explain this…….because I believe the Nisan 14 was Wednesday at Christ’s crucifixion which is the only possibility for ALL the gospels to be correct..I think !

    I hope you can find a moment to answer these questions, please. Having sampled your work …I will now investigate other topics on your website. I thank you very much.
    Sincerely, rodd

    • The moon is in the same phase all around the world. I live in Vietnam. The first sighting of the new moon every month happens within 12-24 hours that it happens in Israel, on the same day. Rarely, the illumination of the moon will be slightly different from opposite ends of the earth, but only a variance of about 1%, not a different phase at all. So rarely, the first sighting in Vietnam may be a day later than in Israel. For religious purposes, I consider the sighting in Israel to be the official one. But there’s not specific instructions about this in the books of Moses.

      Regarding buying a lamb on the Sabbath in order to keep the Passover, Yeshua explained this since it wasn’t clearly explained in the books of Moses. He stated that infants are circumcised on the Sabbath in order to keep the law of circumcision. We also see in the prophets that people sometimes used their animals to travel on the Sabbath. So there are special circumstances that occur on the Sabbath.
