Bible Times

Time keeping in the Bible

So many times I ask myself, and have been asked, how was time calculated in biblical times?

As we read for instance the story of the workers in the vineyard then the observant reader will have a question or two on the time that passed and how it was measured.

There are some websites available that provide this information, but lately I've been drawn to the website which you will also find in our bookmark section and the resource menu of our website.

Another website with much information is from both sites we'll have included some abstracts in this article.

The fast explanation

A pretty fast explanation of a clock in the bible is used at bibleclocks and from which you see a picture on the right hand clock A great, quick explanation that uses the "big picture" on the devision of time, but, when we want to go into more dept, there is way more then the move of hours and the start of the first hour with 1 instead of 0 as we use in our clock.

In the Hebrew calendar, the day start with the sunset and end ends with the sunset, as our western day starts at the midnight hour and ends at the midnight hour.

Within the calendar day there are two 12 hour periods, 12 hours of darkness, called night, and 12 hours of daylight, called day.

Most biblical references to time at night are given as a reference to 1 of 4 different Watches of the Night. The second ring on 12 hour analog style Bible Clocks marks the start of each of those 4 watches. The starting time for the first watch is at nominal sunset, 6:00 PM, then the second watch at 9:00 PM, the third watch at 12:00 Midnight, and the 4th watch at 3:00 AM.

All biblical references to time during the daylight part of the day are given by the hour of the day. The first hour starts at 6:00 AM, 1/2 way through the calendar day. The seventh hour of the day begins at 12:00 Noon, the 12th hour of the day begins at 5:00 PM.

More detail

As Phil Stone did a great job with the website, when you are like me, at a certain moment you want to know more and this is where if found This site includes many references also to the birth and timing of יהושע Yeshua (Jesus). As this site is clearly more Messianic we do see the name of YHWH / Yehovah printed as  יהוה and the name of Yeshua/Yoshua (Jesus) printed as יהושע .

In winter when the temperature is colder, the actual sunrise may occur earlier than projected times. Also, on a day when the barometric pressure is higher, sunrise may occur earlier. Cold temperature and high barometric pressure combined work cumulatively in causing the sunrise to occur earlier than the projected times. only displays sunrise and sunset times to the nearest second to better illustrate the passage of time while providing a near real-time simulation of these events.

Please check out these great pages from our resources menu, or visit either side directly.

Be blessed in your research and understanding of God's great plan for our lives.

Pst. Chris.

Torah Reading 

Deuteronomy 3 : 23 – 7 : 11

Moses Pleads to Enter

23  “I pleaded with Adonai at that time, saying,
24 ‘O Lord Adonai, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand—for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do deeds and mighty acts like Yours?
25 Please! Let me cross over and see the good land across the Jordan—that good hill country and the Lebanon.’
26 “But Adonai was angry with me because of you, so He would not listen to me. ‘Enough!’ Adonai said to me, ‘Do not speak to Me anymore about this matter.
27 Go up to the top of Pisgah, look around to the west and the north and the south and the east, and see with your eyes—for you will not cross over this Jordan.
28 But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will cross over before this people, and he will enable them to inherit the land that you will see.’
29 So we stayed in the valley opposite Beth-peor.

Bnei-Yisrael Must Listen and Obey

1 “Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and ordinances that I am teaching you to do, so that you may live and go in and possess the land that Adonai the God of your fathers is giving you.
2 You must not add to the word that I am commanding you or take away from it—in order to keep the mitzvot of Adonai your God that I am commanding you.
3 Your eyes have seen what Adonai did at Baal Peor, for Adonai your God has destroyed from among you everyone who followed Baal Peor.

4 But you who held tight to Adonai your God are alive today—all of you.
5 “See, just as Adonai my God commanded me, I have taught you statutes and ordinances to do in the land that you are about to enter to possess.
6 You must keep and do them, for it is your wisdom and understanding in the eyes of the peoples, who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’

Haftarah Reading

  Isaiah 40:1–26

Comfort, Proclaim Good News

1 “Comfort, comfort My people,” says your God.
2 Speak kindly to the heart of Jerusalem and proclaim to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed. For she has received from Adonai’s hand double for all her sins.
3 A voice cries out in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of Adonai, Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley will be lifted up, every mountain and hill made low, the rough ground will be a plain and the rugged terrain smooth.
5 The glory of Adonai will be revealed, and all flesh will see it together.” For the mouth of Adonai has spoken.
6 A voice is saying, “Cry out!” So I said, “What shall I cry out?” “All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades. For the breath of Adonai blows on it. Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades. But the word of our God stands forever.”
9 Get yourself up on a high mountain, you who bring good news to Zion! Lift up your voice with strength, you who bring good news to Jerusalem! Lift it up! Do not fear! Say to the cities of Judah: “Behold your God!”
10 Look, Adonai Elohim comes with might, with His arm ruling for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.
11 Like a shepherd, He tends His flock. He gathers the lambs in His arms carries them in his bosom, and gently guides nursing ewes.
Brit Chadashah Brit Chadashah Reading

Luke 22:13–38

13 So they left and found just what Yeshua had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

The Seder in the Upper Room

14 When the hour came, Yeshua reclined at table, and the emissaries with Him.
15 And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
16 For I tell you, I will never eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”
17 And when He had taken a cup and offered the bracha, He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves.
18 For I tell you that I will never drink of the fruit of the vine from now on, until the kingdom of God comes.”
19 And when He had taken matzah and offered the bracha, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body, given for you. Do this in memory of Me.”
20 In the same way, He took the cup after the meal, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you.
21 But look, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Mine on the table.

Matthew 23 : 31 - 39

31 So you testify against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers!
33 O snakes, you brood of vipers! How will you escape the condemnation of Gehenna?
34 “Because of this, behold, I’m sending you prophets and wise men and Torah scholars. Some of them you will kill and execute at the stake, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city.
35 And so, upon you shall come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the Temple and the altar.
36 Amen, I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.”

Holy Temple to Be Destroyed

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!
38 Look, your house is left to you desolate!
39 For I tell you, you will never see Me again until you say, ‘ Baruch ha-ba b’shem Adonai. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”

Mark 12 : 28 - 34

Love Ends the Argument

28 One of the Torah scholars came and heard them debating. Seeing that Yeshua had answered them well, he asked Him, “Which commandment is first of all?”
29 Yeshua answered, “The first is, ‘Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai echad. Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.
30 And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’
31 The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
32 “Well said, Teacher,” the Torah scholar said to Him. “You have spoken the truth, that He is echad, and besides Him there is no other!
33 And ‘to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, and with all the strength,’ and ‘to love the neighbor as oneself,’ is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
34 When Yeshua saw that he had answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And no one dared any longer to question Him.
