Did Jesus Use the Hebrew Calendar?


Catholics, Protestants, and the Eastern Orthodox tend to use the Roman calendar system for determining the holidays that they observe.

But we in the Living Church of God use the Hebrew calendar.

Jesus kept the biblical Holy Days from His youth and even until the day He died adulthood:

His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast (Luke 2:41-42).

And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat”…When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” (Luke 22:8,14-16).

Jesus kept the Feast of Tabernacles (which began last night) and preached about Himself on the Last Great Day,

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living waters’. (John 7:37-38).

Of course, since Jesus kept the Holy Days that are listed in the Bible, Jesus Himself clearly used the Hebrew calendar.
