Testing… because I can’t figure out how to work this very simple blog.
I searched for a place to pose this question – hope you don’t mind that i placed it here.
Have you ever studied Hebrew/Hebraic idioms? This question is in reference to Matthew 24:36 ” No man knows the day or the hour ” I have read in several places that that Jesus in Matthew 24:36 used this Hebrew idiom to speak of the Feast of Trumpets or New moon.
I know we do not share the same views, however, is it possible that Jesus was actually telling his disciples that he would come at the Feast of Trumpets?
I find it interesting that back in the day – there must come two witnesses (first) to testify in the Temple before the Sanhedrin, that they had seen the New Moon in order for the Feast/Festival to begin.
This link/site is ” neutral ” to our positions.
I had forgotten that I needed to respond to this. I don’t follow traditions too much. So I am unaware of the tradition that two witnesses must verify a New Moon. But really, aside from that, I’m not sure how “no man knows the day or hour” would equate with coinciding that unknown day with a known day. Do you see what I mean? With our calendar of mapping out the phases of the moon well in advance, I can’t see how this could apply. I just looked at Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 10:10, 28:11-15. I’m not seeing it in the scriptures anyway. Thanks for asking.
Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13

Oops! The above site is not neutral after all Darrin, it favors your position (rapture) and things 😉
Yeah, i do see what you mean- it’s not in the scriptures.
Thank you for taking the time to answer.
