How Was Time Measured in the Bible?
Have you ever wondered how our current calendar came into existence? Have you read the Bible and found the months different from the calendar hanging on your wall? Join me as we walk back in time to discover how time was measured in the Bible.
In Genesis 1:2, God established the definition of a day, beginning at sunset and going to the next sunset. The only day named in the Bible is the Sabbath. All other days of the week are named in relationship to the Sabbath–the first day after Sabbath, second day, third day, leading up to the seventh day or Sabbath. God blessed the Sabbath day and set it aside as a holy day for His people.
