The Festal Calendar A Comparison as Described in Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 Being that this class is my first exposure to the Biblical Text I consider myself a novice on the subject Therefore almost everything that I have read so far has raised questions and reactions with me I have chosen to write about the Festal Calendar as it is detailed in Leviticus chapter 23 and Deuteronomy chapter 16 There are three main events or appointed festivals of the Lord described in Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 The first one is called the festival of unleavened bread According to Leviticus 23 it occurs on the 14th day of the first month And on that day at twilight there is a passover offering But in Deuteronomy 16 the festival of unleavened bread or passover is said to happen in the month of Abib I believe that this is the same month mentioned in Leviticus 23 as the first month because in Exodus 134 Abib is the month when Moses and the people left Egypt and slavery Both versions of this festival agree that it will last for seven days include offerings to the Lord sacrifices and the eating of unleavened bread However one major difference I noticed is in the location of the offerings or sacrifices Leviticus 23 makes no mention of the place where the offerings and sacrifices of the festival of unleavened bread are to be made but Deuteronomy 16 is very specific about it It states that they are NOT permitted within the town but must be preformed elsewhere at a dwelling chosen by the Lord Second is the festival of weeks also called the Pentecost Both Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 place the time of the festival at seven weeks after the first harvest but neither mentions a specific month I believe the reason for this is because the first harvest may vary from year to year due to changing
