1. Feast of Trumpets: In the Jewish tradition, the new year is celebrated through the Feast of Trumpets. Found in Leviticus 23:23-25, this festival marked the beginning of the Jewish civil year. It was a time of blowing trumpets and offering sacrifices to God, as a way of preparing and consecrating themselves for the year ahead.
2. Reflection and Repentance: The new year in the Bible
Rosh Hashanah is a reminder that the story of God is aimed at a whole-world restoration, and humans are invited to participate. The apostles Paul and John, being Jewish, understood this participatory nature of Rosh Hashanah. And they saw how the life and death of Jesus fulfilled this Hebrew New Year festival.
Scripture lets us know that the new year begins in spring. Exodus 12:2 This month (Abyb) shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
The New Year In The Bible
New Year is the time or day at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar’s year count increments by one. Many cultures celebrate the event in some manner.
The New Year is a time of reflection, renewal, and hope. It is a time to look back on the past year and to look forward to the future. The Bible does not explicitly mention the New Year, but there are several passages that can be interpreted as references to the New Year.
The Hebrew calendar begins with the month of Nisan, which is the first month of the Hebrew calendar. Nisan 1 is the anniversary of the Exodus from Egypt and the beginning of Jewish national history. However, some sources suggest that the biblical New Year is fourteen days before Passover or at the fall equinox. The biblical New Year is not a celebration but a marker for counting the festivals and the years of the kings.
Biblical New Year 2023
The New Year is a time for reflection and renewal. It is a time to look back on the past year and to look forward to the future. The Bible provides several verses that can be used as inspiration for this time of year. Here are some examples:
- “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:18–19). This verse reminds us that God is always doing something new in our lives. We should not dwell on our past mistakes but instead look forward to what God has in store for us.
- “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). This verse reminds us that when we accept Christ into our lives, we become new creations. Our old ways have passed away, and we are given a fresh start.
- “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended, but one thing I do is forget those things that are behind and reach forward to those that are ahead” (Philippians 3:13). This verse reminds us that we should not dwell on our past mistakes but instead focus on what lies ahead.
- “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). This verse reminds us that God has a plan for our lives. We should trust in Him and look forward to what He has in store for us.
- “But one thing I do is forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead” (Philippians 3:13). This verse reminds us that we should forget about our past mistakes and focus on what lies ahead.
