New Moon, New Month

"And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. God made two great lights - the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars [see A Picture Of Heaven]. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the fourth day." (Genesis 1:14-19) (see The Seven Days Of Creation)

Throughout Bible History, people used the Hebrew calendar (see Bible Calendar), which used the natural movements of the heavens to tell time - a day was from sunset to sunset, a month was from new moon to new moon (the word month means moon), and a year was from spring to spring. Bible Months always began at new moon, meaning that, for example, Passover, which was observed on the 14th day of the month of Nisan, always occurred at full moon. A certain classic movie about The Ten Commandments, although excellent overall, is in error by showing a crescent moon on the night of the Passover (see Passover In Egypt and The Ten Plagues) when the death of the firstborn occurred - the moon was full that night.
