The biblical method for determining the date of the celebration of the memory of the death of Jesus Christ
It is the same as that of the Passover of the Bible. Nisan 14 (Biblical calendar month), the fourteenth day starting from the new moon (being the first day of the month of Nisan): “In the first month, on the 14th day of the month, in the evening, you are to eat unleavened bread until the 21st day of the month, in the evening” (Exodus 12:18). The “evening” corresponds to the beginning of the day of nisan 14. In the Bible, the day begins after sunset, the “evening” (“And there was evening and there was morning, a first day” (Genesis 1: 5)). This means that when a lunar astronomical table mentions a full moon, April 8, or a new moon on April 23, it is the period between the two evenings of April 7 and 22, after the sunset, and before the sunrise on April 8 and 23, when the moon is changing (http://pgj.pagesperso-orange.fr/calendar.htm (In French)).
Psalm 81:1–3 (of the Bible) allows us to understand, without a doubt, that the first day of the new moon is the complete disappearance of the moon: “Blow the horn on the new moon, On the full moon, for the day of our festival” (Please, see below the full explanation)*. On this basis, the date of the next commemoration of the death of Jesus Christ will be SUNDAY, APRIL 2, 2023, after sunset.
* This text (Psalms 81:1–3) poetically mentions “the new moon” from the date of Ethanim 1 (Tishri) when the horn was blown (Numbers 10:10; 29:1). It is “the full moon” of Ethanim, 15 (Tishri), the time of the joyous “festival (of the Booths)” (see verses 1,2 and Deuteronomy 16:15). On the basis of the lunar astronomical table, the observation is as follows: When we consider that the new moon is the full disappearance (without quarter of the moon), in all cases, the 15th of the lunar month falls both in the period of the first observable full moon and the astronomical full moon. In the case when the new moon is considered to be the observation of the first quarter (as the first day of the month), in most cases, the first observable full moon or the astronomical full moon, corresponds to the night of 12 or 13 of the month, and more rarely the 14 of the month. This means that in this case, that on the 15th of the month, in almost all cases, the moon begins its descending phase (it is no longer an observable full moon)… Consequently, without a doubt, the first day of the month, as the new moon, is the complete disappearance of the moon (and not the appearance of the first quarter of the moon), according to the Bible (Psalm 81:1–3).
