Yom Kippur date
Hmmm... yeees... in one way, but it seems difficult...
Where can I read about the 360 days, and the change in number of days in the two years? If that is true, then my thinking about the change makes sense. I just thought it was different. I have not studied the subject at all. Interesting...
I remembered the evidence from the Torah that you were asking about...
It is Noah journey. Torah explicitly says that Noah traveled for 150 days, from 2/17 to 7/17. This can only mean that during the flood the Solar and Lunar years were 360 days because it is the only way to achieve a count of 150 days between given dates.
And since we today see a different picture it means that the Cycles have changed. From what I understand it happened in the days of Peleg because splitting of one continent is the only thing that could've changed the Cycles.
Great question and I will make a post about it on my blog 🙂 Otherwise just wanted to let you know.
If we had manuscripts that said something different and we were trying to distinguish between them, then there would be a reason to try to figure out which one was right. However, we don't. The 8th day Yom Kippur is not according to the Torah, trying to rearrange when we think the dates should be is not fruitful. How do we know what the criteria for Elohim's appointment was? Why do we think we know how it's supposed to be? The moon/shabbat connection is not made in the text in the way that it has been suggested.
8th Day Yom Kippur:
Focus on Yahuah and His written Torah.
I do not want to argue with you about this, especially on your forum, since we have thoroughly discussed it and you know my views on the matter.
If you do not find my arguments sufficient, then we will have to disagree on this one. It is sad but there is no other choice.
You are correct. There are no manuscripts that show the 8th as the date for Yom Kippur. But our manuscripts are not the whole body of evidence and we must take other things into account IMHO.
