Explanation for Calendars


 

THE JEWISH YEAR

The Jewish calendar, as it now exists, is based on astronomical principles. It differs from the ordinary calendar because its unit is the month, not the year. It takes the moon 29 ½ days to circle the earth. As the calendar month must have an integral number of days, some Jewish months have 29 days and some 30.


 

Twelve lunar months compose a year and comprise altogether 354 days. The solar year or the time it takes the earth to make one revolution about the sun, is 365 ¼ days, or roughly 11 days more. In order to harmonize the lunar and solar years a thirteenth month, called Second Adar, is added in the Jewish calendar seven times in 19 years, i.e., on the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 19th. Each of these years is a leap year.


 

The Jews had two New Years, the Civil, in Ethanim or Tisrj (October) and the Sacred, in Abib or Nisan (April), the month in which they left Egypt under Moses.


 

The following table gives the months in order, beginning with the Sacred New Year. The numbers in parentheses are those of the months according to the civil reckoning; and the modern names given are approximately the corresponding months according to our calendar. The exact period in modern terms differs each year.

Names of the Months and of the Days of the Week

The practice of naming the days of the week is derived from Egyptian astronomy. It did not become firmly established in our civilization until the times of the Theodosius at the end of the fourth century A.D. Curiously enough, it was the Roman custom of lettering the successive days of nundinum (a period of eight days) which gave rise to the modern custom in some churches whereby the dominical letter is determined. The days of the week are lettered from A to G just as the Romans lettered the days of a nundinum from A to H.

According to Egyptian astronomers the sun and the moon were planets and the order of the planets in terms of the distance from earth was as follows: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. One hour of each day, beginning with the first, was consecrated to each of these “planets”. The whole day was consecrated to the planet to which belonged the first hour. If the first is consecrated to the Sun, to which belongs the first hour, then the first hour of the next day will belong to the Moon and the day will be the moon’s day, and so on until, after the cycle has been completed, the first hour of the eighth day will belong to the sun again.


 

Our names of the days of the week are derived from Anglo-Saxon names and these in turn are named for the Saxon gods which correspond to the Roman gods for whom the days were named. The Roman names, of course, have survived in Spanish, French, Italian, and other languages.


 

The days of Mars was called the day of Tiw, the god of war.


 

The day of Mercury was called the day of Woden, chief of the gods, whose attributes corresponded more nearly to those of the Roman Mercury than of Jupiter.


 

The day of Jupiter was called the day of Thor, the god of Thunder.


 

The day of Venus was call the day of Frigg, queen of the gods.


 

The seventh day is still called the day of Saturn, the sower of seed.


 

THE CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST has great apprehension of using pagan names of months and days.

We suffer this burden while we are in the world, but are constantly reminded that we are not of the world. Yet we tolerate these nomenclatures merely as tools of communications with the outside world.


 

We would strongly urge the saints of God against conforming to the use of honoring idols, by calling the names of the days and moths after these pagan deities, and be transforming to the more real concept of the First day, Second day, etc. and apply this method also to the months.


 

JANUARY was named from Janus, an old Roman god.


 

FEBRUARY was named from the Februs, the expiatory ceremonies which the Romans held in honor of the dead of this month.


 

MARCH was named from the Roman god Mars who, at the time of the naming of the month, was primarily a god of Agriculture; the symbol of spring-time and of youth. It was only after the artificial identification of Roman gods with Greek gods took place the Mars became the god of war, the counterpart of Ares.


 

APRIL is derived from the same root as the Latin aperire which means “to open.” Thus April is the month of the opening buds and flowers.


 

MAY is of uncertain origins.


 

JUNE may have been name from the Roman goddess Juno, or from Latin junior “younger.”


 

JULY, originally Quinctilis, was renamed for Julius Caesar, who was born in that month.


 

AUGUST, originally Sextilis, was renamed from the honorary title of the Roman Emperor Augustus, who was born in that month.
