Re: [XTalk] Passover and Sabbaths
- If, as is stated elsewhere, the Qumran & Jubilees solar year began on
a Wednesday, and if the first month were Abib/Nisan, then the
variation between the Qumran calendar and the Rabbinic calendar does
not explain the differences between the Synoptics and John, because
the Qumran calendar would always have Pesach begin on a Tuesday
(which none of the gospels suggest).
Thanks for your assistance,
