Exclusive Material: Correct dates for the Passover lamb taking, 50th of Omer and Yom Kippur

This year has been very productive for me in terms of deciphering the Written Torah and extracting correct information from it.

Today, I want to point your attention to three events: 10th of the 1st Month, on which we take and keep Passover Lamb, 50th of Omer and Yom Kippur which happens on the 10th of the 7th Month.

What is the connection between these three?

As I mentioned in my previous posts, 1st and 7th months seem to be identical in terms of holy days dates. Traditionally, the dates are the 10th and 15th-22nd. This seems to make sense and does not raise any flags at all, right?

Wrong! Think about it! Why Taking of the Lamb and Yom Kippur are on the 10th? The 10th was never a significant date and there is no moon phase on it. Ask the same question about 50th of Omer. Why does traditional interpretation produce weird Shabbat+Holy Meeting combination? So ALWAYS ask why!!! If it does not make sense there is a chance that the text had been edited.

Let's look at these issues in detail:

The first issue is that Yom Kippur is explicitly called Shabbat. As we know, according to the correct Torah calendar (Genesis 1:14), all Shabbats/Holy Meetings fall on major Moon why not Yom Kippur? 10th of the 7th Month does not have a phase and happens between the phases of the Moon. How are we to determine such an important Shabbat if we, say, lost track of time? Obviously, we need a sign, which can only be one of the major Moon phases. This means that Yom Kippur should fall on the 8th (1st Quarter Shabbat) and not on the 10th. Torah itself is telling us where Yom Kippur should be because the 8th is the only available Shabbat in the 7th month. All others are taken by other Holy Meetings.

Unfortunately, there is no explicit textual evidence that I can present except the implicit verses of Numbers 29:8 and Numbers 29:36. As you can see from these verses, the burnt-offering on Yom Kippur is the same as on the 8th day of Sukkot, so this is the obvious clue to the fact that Yom Kippur is on the 8th and not 10th.

Another fact to support my theory is that we have exactly 60 weekly Shabbats in a standard Torah year, so Yom Kippur can't be separate from these 60 because then we would have 1 extra Shabbat per year which does not make sense and can't be explained. Design of the Tabernacle also supports this theory because there were only 60 pillars in the Tabernacle Courtyard, not 61.

There is also a connection with circumcision now. We circumcise on the 8th day from the child's birth and we atone for sins on the 8th day from the beginning of the 7th month.

The second issue is we have 10th of the 1st Month. Absolutely unjustified date, which also falls between the Moon phases. How are we to remember to take the Lamb for Passover? I think the original date in the Torah was the 8th and not the 10th. If we assume that, the text makes sense. We take the Lamb and keep it for a Shabbat or 7 days, from 8th through the 14th evening. From Shabbat to Shabbat. Also, we would have 1st Quarter Shabbat phase of the Moon to remind us of it. Here as well we have the calendar giving us a hint. 8th is the only available Shabbat in the 1st Month. All others are taken by other Holy Meetings. There is actually a similar commandment in the Torah in Exodus 22:29-30, from which I deduce that we keep Passover Lamb for 7 days and slaughter it on the 8th.

The third issue, we have 50th of Omer, a Holy Meeting that traditionally believed to fall right after Shabbat, meaning we would get a weird Shabbat+Holy Meeting combination. This can't be right. Fortunately, it is possible to interpret the description of Leviticus 23 to have 50th of Omer to fall on Shabbat, because there are exactly 50 days between 7 Shabbats if we count from Shabbat to Shabbat. See my calendar below for this year schedule.

Therefore, correct Holy Meetings are:
  1. 8th of the 1st Month - Taking of the Lamb
  2. 15th-22nd of the 1st Month - Passover - 7 days eat unleavened bread.
  3. Omer - From Shabbat to Shabbat. So earliest day it can happen is on the 1st of the 2nd month, or any following Shabbat if High Priest decides so. Regardless, we count from Shabbat to Shabbat or exactly 50 days.
  4. 1st of the 7th Month - Yom Teruah - Day of the Blast/Shofar.
  5. 8th of the 7th Month - Yom Kippur. Falls on 1st Quarter Shabbat.
  6. 15th-22nd of the 7th Month - Sukkot. We dwell in self-made shelters of branches for 7 days.
Here is the diagram to illustrate all the Holy Meetings, signs and what they are reminding us about:

And below is the calendar to illustrate the point:

The benefits of this system are such that we do not have Shabbat+Holy Meeting combinations and we have major moon phases for ALL of these events to remind us of it.

I believe that Pharisees (rabbis) have changed original dates to the 10th because both Temples were destroyed on 9-10th of Av. They decided to commemorate the destruction of the Temples this way. Or perhaps they wanted to make Torah fit their crazy incorrect calendar. Regardless, there was a BLATANT change of the text. Since MT=SP=DSS, we can deduce that this change happened before the 2nd Temple period.

This is why I would like to repeat once again that the only error-proof way to interpret the Written Torah is through logic, reason and comparative critical analysis. The text itself can't be trusted.
