About the 10th of the 1st and 7th Months

As you know from the Torah, traditional date for Taking of Passover Lamb and Yom Kippur is the 10th of the 1st and 7th month respectively. Obviously, this date is incorrect because there is no major Moon Phase on the 10th.

In fact, as I explained on my blog, the 10th date does not appear anywhere else in the Torah.

Think about it, if we really to take Passover Lamb on the 10th, it would mean that we have to keep it until 14th evening, which makes it 5 days between the taking of the Lamb and its slaughter. This number of days obviously does not make any sense. On the contrary, Leviticus 22:27 says that usually the animal is kept for 7 days and slaughtered on the 8th.

So as you can see, the 10th and resulting 5 days of keeping of the Lamb do not have any support in the Torah. So it is obviously a clear case of intentional edit of the Torah.

In my calendar, we take Passover Lamb on the 8th and keeping it until 14th evening which makes it exactly 7 days which is similar to the above-cited Lev 22:27.

So it is very clear to me that the 10th is the date from the 1st Temple time and it was a result of intentional editing of the Torah to justify the Temple Cult.
