Shalom Howard.

Thanks for your correspondence. I will address your question in reference to the Bible Book of Leviticus (Chapter 23:24) concerning the “the seventh renewal, the one of the renewal”… but I may not be able to provide a complete answer (… and sorry for the length of time taken for the current reply).

Because there are 49 lunar phases (plus 3.5 days) in one solar circuit then the date: ‘the seventh renewal, the one of the renewal’ has to occur on at least one of these 49 occurrences.

When accounting for 49 lunar-phases in a formal calendar there are 49 seven-day weeks and  19 single days in one annual cycle (or in one solar year). This distribution of weeks and single days must be prorated at the rate of 0.38 days per week. So about as quickly as this rate accrues to a whole single day, then an intermission day is indicated within the annual cycle. (It seems that the single days must always occur at a respective lunar-phase according to a prorated distribution).

These astronomical constraints make it very easy to set down a calendar table (as a formal arrangement). Essentially, there just isn’t any room to put anything else in an annual calendar (other than 49 weeks and a
corresponding prorated distribution of nineteen single intermission days).

This annual distribution of forty-nine weeks might look something like this:

Year One:     [49 weeks and intermission days…]
Year Two:     [49 weeks and intermission days…]
Year Three:  [49 weeks and intermission days…]  [1 lunar week]
Year Four:    [49 weeks and intermission days…]
Year Five:    [49 weeks and intermission days…]
Year Six:       [49 weeks and intermission days…] [1 lunar week]
Year Seven  [50 weeks and intermission days…]

The interpretation as shown could see one set of seven-weeks in each annual cycle as  unique (as further shown below). This unique set of seven weeks would occur once in each annual cycle, but the seventh set of seven-weeks (which occurs in the seventh year) requires an extra week (a fiftieth week).

The interpretation also requires an additional week (as a festival) each third year. This count of a third year festival continues across seven-year boundaries and it continues across jubilee boundaries. Interestingly, it coincides with the jubilee circuit after 50 revolutions (or each 150 years) but this conjunction is of absolutely no seeming significance because (from a mathematical standpoint) this cycle of three years continues on, and on, and on.

The progression of 49 weeks with intermission intervals, as shown, can be continued without any additional correction for approximately 3,600 years (as long as each fiftieth year is skipped over by the seven year cycle).

At approximately 3600 years one-lunar week must be omitted from the progression, so essentially, the three year circuit might be interpreted to ultimately terminate at the sixth great-year.

If we return our focus to the annual cycle, it is significant that each count of four weeks must keep pace with the month, or the lunar progression.  The following diagram shows a distribution whereby each first and third renewal day would appear at the dark of the Moon, and at the full of the Moon, while each second and fourth renewal day would appear at the quarters.

[A set of seven-weeks…]
Year One   1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1
1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1 777 1
[A set of seven-weeks…]
Year Two   1 777 ….. …… ….. …..

Essentially, the analysis (as presented throughout the paragraphs above) reveals the necessity for determining a formal calendar before any further details of the harvest cycle (and associated festivals) can be known.

The number model (as presented above) shows that intermission days (and intermission weeks) do not necessarily need to align by four week and seven week intervals (or by four seasons and seven seasons, etc.) as shown at the web site. It seems that timing rates are all the same (and a special creation is very evident), but there still is a bit of room for interpretation.

We are still struggling with a formal calendar which interfaces with an Earth/Moon/Sun system and is clearly verifiable within ancient history.

I’ll be sure and inform you of any new information (when it is posted at the web site). In the meantime, if you might have any additional information be sure and clue us in.

With Best Regards,
James Dwyer
