Dr. John Lennox On The Mystery of Free Will



Free will and God... Dr. Lennox give a great anecdote between the "how" and the "that." We do not have to explain "how" something works in order to know the comparability with the best explanation.

Great short apologetic response.

Christopher Hitchens vs John Lennox | Is God Great? Debate



"Is God Great?" sees two of the West's very best minds face off on the subject - the late atheist Christopher Hitchens and Professor John Lennox of Oxford University.

Hitchens, who made his opinion clear on the topic with his book "God is not Great," maintains not only that God fails to be great, but denies his existence entirely. Professor Lennox, a convinced Christian and scientist, respectfully disagrees. This event features a unique blend of both planned remarks and fast-paced dialogue that tackles these issues in a refreshing and informative light. It is sure to offer insights to all.

Who Created God? John Lennox at The Veritas Forum at UCLA


Who Created God? And how can God be three and one? Aren't these "mysteries," and don't Christians just have to say, "we don't know"? Explore with John Lennox as he explores hard questions and objections to Christianity at "Christianity and the Tooth Fairy."

What Great Philosophers Can Teach Us About How to Live: Alain de Botton (2000)


In Consolations, de Botton attempts to console the reader through everyday problems (or at least help them to understand them) by extensively quoting and interpreting a number of philosophers. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/067...

These are categorised in a number of chapters with one philosopher used in each.
    Consolation for Unpopularity (Socrates)
    Consolation for Not Having Enough Money (Epicurus)
    Consolation for Frustration (Seneca)
    Consolation for Inadequacy (Montaigne)
    Consolation for a Broken Heart (Schopenhauer)
    Consolation for Difficulties (Nietzsche)

30 Essential Reads for Philosophy Majors
December 19th, 2011 by Staff Writers


Philosophy may not enjoy the greatest of reputations when it comes to potential majors, but nevertheless, the subject holds great appeal to worldly types who find its interdisciplinary nature totally tantalizing. After all, the arts, sciences, politics, economics, and pretty much every other degree plan out there crosses over with the ancient subject at some point.

So those studying philosophy should stand proud of their choice to pursue such a broad, eclectic field! But they should probably realize just how much reading it’s going to involve. Like, English major levels. And the following will likely find their way into the curriculum at some point
:

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
One of the most influential philosophical and religious texts of all time, the literary cornerstone of Taoism (and, to a lesser extent, Buddhism as practiced in China) covers a broad spectrum of philosophical topics. Politics, tranquility, social mores and pretty much everything else one can think of all receive insightful inquiry here.

The Art of War by Sun Tzu
One need not adhere to a military career to find some of The Art of War‘s tenets useful, as numerous East Asian (and even some “Western”) politicians, lawyers, businesspersons, and even athletes can attest. Considering its reach extends far beyond its ancient Chinese origins, philosophy majors, minors, and other students would do well to give the text a thorough reading.

Analects of Confucius by Confucius
As with the works of Lao Tzu and Sun Tzu, Confucius’ philosophy continues resonating worldwide millennia after publication; the book chronicling the belief system bearing his name, however, was likely compiled by his closest acolytes. Most of his teachings involve outlining morality and humanity, particularly as they relate to social interactions.

Complete Works by Plato
This legendary Greek philosopher garners the most recognition for his Socratic dialogues, modeled after the teaching and debate style of his mentor Socrates. These heavily influential talks outline Plato’s supertheories of supereverything, which means plenty of politics, science, mathematics, logic, epistemology, rhetoric, and other philosophical topics to go round.

Corpus Aristotelicum by Aristotle
Contemporary philosophy students have medieval scholars to thank for preserving another one of Socrates’ devoted acolytes’ major works, although speculation abounds over how much of it is authentic. Regardless, though, the Corpus Aristotelicum and its detailed examinations of politics, metaphysics, rhetoric, poetry, ethics, logic, science, and physics remains an essential read for all philosophy buffs, particularly those with a more “Western” bent.

The Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius
Penned during the author’s year-long prison stint prior to his execution for treason, the partial inspiration for A Confederacy of Dunces asks the timeless question of why God allows bad things to happen to good people. Despite this heavy thesis, scholars do not believe Boethius meant for his musings as a religious diatribe (Jesus and dogmatic principles, for example, receive no mention), but rather an observation on the nature of existence using “God” as a broad semantic stand-in for life’s inevitable ebbs and flows.

The Metaphysics of the Healing by Abu Ali ibn Sina
Also known as The Book of Healing, Abu Ali ibn Sina’s (usually Anglicized as “Avicenna”) masterpiece completely revolutionized many scientific and mathematical disciplines; although the title makes reference to the author’s entirely game-changing surgical and medical contributions, it has nothing to do with either topic. Rather, he “narrows” his attentions to building on earlier writings about logic, metaphysics, music, natural science, geometry, and astronomy from the Greeks and his fellow Muslims.

The Incoherence of the Incoherence by Abu I-Walid Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Rushd
Abu I-Walid Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Rushd challenged his Sufi contemporary Imam Al-Ghazali’s The Incoherence of the Philosophers, which lambasted the incorporation of Greek (specifically Aristotelian) thought into Islamic academia. Here, he utilizes a dialogue structured and responds to specific criticism, attempting to synthesize the two different belief systems into one harmonious whole.

Summa Theologica by Thomas Aquinas
Summa Theologica may be unfinished, but it still exists as one of the most important Catholic/Christian (and therefore “Western”) treatises ever published. Although he writes about multiple theological subjects, Thomas Aquinas’ main goal is actually quite simple – explain what the Church believes (or at least believed at the time – some things HAVE changed, after all) and why.

Secretum by Petrarch
Scholars often hail Petrarch as the grandfather of the humanist school, and Secretum – which many believe may not have ever been intended for public consideration – offers up pretty compelling evidence for this mindset. Reading like more of a self-assessment than anything else, he earnestly addresses Augustine of Hippo’s accusations that he does not take faith, God, the afterlife, and other core Catholic/Christian beliefs seriously enough.

Meditations on First Philosophy by Rene Descartes
Philosophy students eager to snap up as much metaphysical literature as possible should consider Rene Descartes an essential read, particularly his six meditations reflecting the shape of what he believes to be real and certain. Each one builds upon the other and structures itself as a six-day meditation ritual reflecting on whether or not God and the soul are actually things.

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes
For the more politically-minded, Leviathan provides one of the earliest explorations of social contract theory, which attempts to make sense of humanity’s interactions with its governing bodies. Published as the English Civil War raged, the philosopher advocated for a solid, centralized social contract structure over which a supreme sovereign entity reigned.

Treatise on the Art of Philosophising Soberly and Accurately by Anton Wilhelm Amo
Most of this esteemed, though sadly often overlooked, Ghanaian philosopher and academic’s essays fueled one of his quintessential publications. As the title states, he pulls from his epistemological empiricism to deliver a discourse on ethical, honest intellectualism accessible to anyone hoping to participate.

On the Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
By the time On the Social Contract saw publication, the eponymous theory already drifted about the scene in a solid enough state, albeit one open to interpretation. Jean-Jacques Rousseau just added to it, infusing ideas of a direct democracy in with the ideology’s take on a monarchal, bureaucratic political structure.

Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant
Aristotelian philosophy’s traditional perspectives on judgment and analysis receive something of an academic smackdown in this ambitious assessment of a priori human thought. Most of Immanuel Kant’s oeuvre aimed to synthesize the concretely known with the speculative while still allowing room for some more abstracted speculations.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
Without Mary Wollstonecraft, the feminist movement may have taken on a completely different shape, maybe even kicked off later; either way, though, it’s an early, essential glimpse at the mindsets behind women’s rights. The author meant to rip apart social norms denying women equal opportunities in the classroom, the home, and beyond, paving the way for later activists like Simone de Beauvoir and Betty Friedan.

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
Rigid class structures give way to more collectivist economic and social protocol in one of political philosophy’s most controversial texts. Seeing as how many different interpretations of this frequently inflammatory read continue impacting peoples worldwide even today (not to mention inspire philosophers past and present), students of many disciplines should give it a read and see what it actually says.

Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard
Many philosophy enthusiasts paint Danish theologian Soren Kierkegaard as the progenitor (if not first follower) of the existentialist movement, or at least the Christian wing. His semi-autobiographical inquiry into ethics, faith, and consciousness – particularly as embodied in the story of Abraham and Isaac – guided him through the trauma resulting from his fiance’s death.

Walden; Or Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau
Some dispute regarding whether or not the renowned transcendentalist author really lived out a year in blissful solitude or just occasional flirtations with blissful solitude exists, but it still doesn’t entirely tarnish his points any. Walden creates a compelling case for self-reliance, an appreciation of nature, and pleasure in simplicity, all while mercilessly satirizing then-contemporary American culture.

Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson also stands as one of transcendentalism’s most notable proponents, perpetuating a philosophy celebrating individualism, nature, freedom’s many forms, and living up to one’s fullest potential. Suffice to say, his many well-regarded essays on the subjects make for rather uplifting reading when some of philosophy’s more cynical corners start weighing too heavily.

On Liberty by John Stuart Mill
Classical liberalism — the political philosophy which John Stuart Mill helped develop — separated the state from the individual, adroitly summarized with the Harm Principle, which says the government holds no authority to interfere in anyone’s business unless they’re infringing upon someone else’s rights. Victorian society, as one can probably easily imagine, found such an ideology utterly radical and scandalous.

On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin
Speaking of utterly radical and scandalous, On the Origin of Species continues to draw ire centuries later because the naturalist author dared to pioneer the entire field of evolutionary biology. While more scientific than philosophical, its impact on…well…pretty much everything since then (for better or for worse) earns the book a spot on every majors’ and minors’ shelves.

Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
Everyone’s favorite misanthropic existentialist parodies Judaism and Christianity with the adventures of the fictional prophet Zarathustra. While his famous, often entirely misinterpreted, theories regarding the Ubermensch appeared in earlier writings, here Friedrich Nietzsche further congeals the concept and discusses its (and society’s) relationship with God.

Being and Time by Martin Heidegger
At the intersection of existentialism, deconstruction, and hermeneutics sits the controversial Martin Heidegger and the incomplete (but still essential) Being and Time. It’s pretty dense stuff, focusing on the nature and meaning behind existence itself as well as slowly dismantling and examining metaphysical principles.

The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir
Building on Mary Wollstonecraft’s feminist foundation, Simone de Beauvoir injected a hearty dosage of communism, existentialism, and psychoanalysis into the frothy mix, which wouldn’t fully bubble until decades later. A philosophical and sociological landmark, this treatise on women’s rights cobbled together an intellectual argument calling for complete equality.

The Roads to Freedom trilogy by Jean-Paul Sartre
Inspired by watching Nazis rampage through his native France (as well as World War II in general), the existentialist and Marxist took to writing the novels The Age of Reason, The Reprieve, and Troubled Sleep as a way to further refine his philosophical leanings. Nobody should be surprised that the surrounding elements, sometimes autobiographical and semi-autobiographical, marked an evolution in his thoughts.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Whether one absolutely despises Objectivism or thinks its justification of selfish behavior is just about the raddest thing going, it still warrants consideration; and “know thine enemy” certainly works as an excuse to pick up this unholy brick-novel hybrid. Thoroughly dystopian, the novel pretty much encompasses everything author Ayn Rand stood for in most of her oeuvre.

The Order of Things by Michel Foucault
Discourse and epistemology are the name of the game here, particularly when it comes to digging deeply into humanity’s relationship with the sciences throughout history. The social sciences in particular, although he also covers some of the life sciences, linguistics, art, and economics while eking out the truths and realities relevant eras conjured from them.

Of Grammatology by Jacques Derrida
Of Grammatology is a must for any and every postmodernist, deconstructionist, and poststructuralist out there, although most of its more immediately noticeable influence lay within the literary realm. Which makes perfect sense, seeing as how he deconstructs and re-examines the very notion of writing and its role in shaping human communication and thought throughout time.

Man and His Symbols by Carl Jung
Philosophy majors without a hefty background in psychoanalytic criticism can still jump on board one of its pioneers’ major theories and understand how they came to inspire later thinkers. Along with his more ardent followers, Carl Jung outlines his ideas regarding dream symbolism, the Collective Unconscious, archetypes, and other career highlights

Why did you put your 'Why it matters' video in here?

You don't believe in gravity, but Lennox was saying there is not a final conflict between gravity and God because God created gravity.  It is part of the 'something' that must have been created for this universe to exist.  Hawking overlooks it as a given that exists, simply because something would have existed instead of nothing.  So the best tool that Lennox has to show to Hawking that a creator exists is the thing you don't believe in and that FE does not believe in.

The reality is 99.9% of the population is WRONG about gravity bro. The Bumble Bee destroys the theory of gravity.

NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR?


At the Time of the End, the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10

Understanding the expression "No man knows the day or hour" is not possible
by simply taking the English translation literally, because in the book of
Daniel and the Book of Revelation, we are given EXACT descriptions of
timing, relative to KEY events - such as the shutting down of the altar
sacrifices in Jerusalem at the MID-POINT of the 70th week. Dan 9:27

Jesus was asked, "When shall these things be?" Matt 24:3

His answer ties us in to a very specific event (The Abomination of
Desolation) which can be measured on our calendars: "When you therefore
shall see the Abomination Of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:)..." Matt 24:15.

It is now clear that "no man knows the day or hour" does NOT mean "no man
knows the day or hour" as we read it from a modern-day English perspective.

>From his book "Signs In the Heavens" by Avi Ben Mordechai, he devotes a
chapter to explaining what "no man knows the day or hour" truly means from
a rabbinical Hebraic perspective. It is a figure of speech.

The following chapter contains edited excerpts from Avi Ben Mordechai's
commentaries and builds on them aiming to explain that the Holy Bible does
in fact reveal the "day and hour" or "exact timing" of our Lord's Return.

No One Knows the Day or the Hour?

Christians over the centuries have separated themselves from their Hebraic
roots causing the misunderstanding of key Jewish biblical idioms. An idiom
is also a figure of speech. When Y'shua (Jesus) uttered His famous words
concerning the Messianic Era in Mattityahu (Matthew) 24:26,

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but
only the Father", He used a common Jewish figure of speech referring to a
specific Jewish Festival. In essence He was saying, "I am coming for My
Bride on such and such a day! Be watching!" What day could the Jewish idiom
be referring to? Keep reading!

HEBRAIC ROOTS

Y'shua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) was Jewish and lived a
Torah-observant Jewish life. Evidence suggests that He communicated to His
audience in the Hebrew language, in Hebraic ways. What does it mean to
communicate in Hebraic ways?


It means to think and talk like a Jew. In Y'shua's day it meant to speak in the language and idioms of the day.
Those who heard the Lord speak knew what He was saying and usually what He was
alluding to unless He was speaking in parables, which had their own
analogies. Of course, today's generation of believers struggles to
understand His words and concepts.


Speaking, thinking and acting like the
Jewish Rabbi He was helped His mission in bringing the gospel message to
"the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matt 15:24).

Y'shua was quoted in Mattityahu (Matthew) 8:11 as saying: "I say to you
that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places
at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven".

Since we are talking about Jewish idioms, have you ever considered the meaning of
these words? Specifically, our Lord used and confirmed common Jewish ideas
about the Day of the Lord - the millennium - and its relation to the Feast
of Sukkot (Tabernacles) in Z'kharyah 14.


In speaking, Y'shua referred to
the Festival and its traditional guests of honour, Avraham, Yitzchak and
Ya'acov, called the ushpizin (uoosh-piz-zin) or seven shepherds (exalted
guests), invited into every succah (tabernacle) at the Feast of Sukkot in
the fall of the year.

The seven shepherds in descending order are
1. Avraham (Abraham), 2. Yitzchak (Isaac), 3. Ya'acov (Jacob), 4. Mosheh
(Moses), 5. Aaron, 6. Yosef (Joseph) and 7. HaMelech David (King David).
By mentioning the feast and three of the seven shepherds,

His audience
immediately understood the allusion to the Messianic age - "Millennium" or
"Day" of the Lord.

"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost" (Luke 19:10).
Again, in this simplistic phrase Y'shua, the Son of Miriyam and Yosef,
spoke of two things: His Deity (by calling Himself the subject of the
prophet Dani'el's vision) and His mission (by calling Himself the One God
Who spoke to Mosheh on Mount Sinai) as it is written in Dani'el and
Yechezk'el (Ezekiel):

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was One like a Son of
Man, coming with the clouds of Heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days
and was led into His presence (Dani'el 7:13-14).

For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I Myself will search for My sheep
and look after them (Yechezk'el-Ezekiel 34:11ff).

In the Gospel narrative of Luke 23:31, Y'shua said: "For if men do these
things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?" In this
verse Y'shua points His audience, who had portions of the writings of the
Prophets memorized, to the verses in Yechezk'el (Ezekiel) 20:45 to 21:7.
Without question, Y'shua's hearers knew He referred to Chevlei HaMashiach
or Ya'acov's Trouble in the Great Tribulation and warned His audience that
what they do to Him in hardness of heart now, God will do to the nation in
judgement later.

Y'shua's encounter with Natan'el (Nathanael) is recorded in Yochanan (John)
1:47-48: When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, He said of him, "Here is a
true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false". "How do You know me?"
Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the
fig tree before Philip called you".

Again, our Lord used a strong figure of speech pointing to a widely taught
Jewish expectation concerning the resurrection and the millennium. In
brief, He told Natan'el that he will be alive on the Last Day to inherit
the land promised to Avraham (Bereshith-Genesis 17:8). From Y'shua's words,
Natan'el understood he would participate in the resurrection since "that
Day" was yet future.


This is understood in the first century Jewish figure
of speech, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree", which
refers to life and study of Torah in the millennium (Midrash Rabbah
Genesis, Rabbah Song of Songs).


Y'shua also told Natan'el that he is like
righteous Avraham who received his reward for trusting God. This is
understood because of the phrase, "Here is a true Israelite, in whom there
is nothing false". The millennial concept of the fig tree is found
throughout the Tanach including Z'kharyah 3:10:


"In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and fig tree", declares the
LORD Almighty. For this reason Natan'el responded emphatically to Y'shua
and His words, saying: "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; You are the King of
Israel!"

God through HaMashiach Y'shua spoke to the Jews in many portions and in
many ways (Hebrews 1:1-2) relying upon known figures of speech, common
expectations and direct thoughts from Talmudic and Pharisaic teachings. The
concepts I addressed only scratch the surface, so-to-speak.


Every phrase
and word from the mouth of the Lord meant something to His audience. He
spoke with precision. With that as a basis, let us go on to one of the most
interesting Jewish figures of speech misunderstood by the Church over the
years. It concerns Y'shua's phrase,


"No one knows about that day or hour,
not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father". In
context, He refers to the home-taking of His bride, the beginning of the
Messianic era and His millennial reign as King of kings over all the earth.
To understand this concept, we begin by examining its foundation.

ROSH HASHANAH

Chapter Five described the annual Jewish Festival of Trumpets or Rosh
HaShanah - the first day of the seventh month. A few themes linked to this
Jewish festival are resurrection, repentance, kingship, corronation and a
marriage feast.


This chapter shows another theme and convincing proof that
Rosh HaShanah is not only the start of "The Day of the Lord" (Millennium),
but is also the day of the resurrection! It has to do with the moon and its
29-day cycle of renewal.

In this period of slightly less than 30 days, the moon goes from darkness
to light and back to darkness again. This is not a haphazard occurrence
attributed to evolution or science.

God planned it for many reasons, one
being as a picture of resurrection and renewal. With each cycle of nearly
30 days the ancient rabbis understood that the moon was being reborn or
"born again" (Sefard siddur, Mussaf for Shabbat and Shabbat Rosh Chodesh,
p. 509 and 646-648).

NEW MOON

In Y'shua's day, the moon was so important that a Jewish festival was
proclaimed at the beginning of every month (Talmud Tractate Chaggigah 17b;
Shavuot 10a; Arachin 10b). This was called the New Moon Festival and in the
B'rit Chadashah, Rabbi Sha'ul (Paul) makes note of it (Colossians 2:16).
Even in the Tanach, King David provoked King Sha'ul (Saul) over it (1
Shmu'el-Samuel 20:5).


In the coming millennium the gate of the inner court
of the Temple facing east shall be opened on the new moon
(Yechezk'el-Ezekiel 46:1).


And finally in the millennium all nations will
celebrate the New Moon festival every month (Yeshayahu-Isaiah 66:23). It is
obvious from the Hebrew Scriptures that in the millennium God has no plans
to do away with His system.

Since it is so important, exactly what is a new moon? It is the opposite of
a full moon. Every month the moon goes through a complete cycle of renewal
called Rosh Chodesh, the head or beginning of the renewed month. Twelve
times a year on Rosh Chodesh, the moon always starts off with its disk
being very dark to the naked eye.


Over the course of 15 days it gets
brighter and brighter until it finally reaches a full white-faced disk or
full moon. Over the next 15 days it becomes darker and darker and finally
becomes invisible to the naked eye again.

The ancient rabbis saw a great lesson in this. Just as the moon has no
light of its own but receives its light from the sun, so we too have no
light of our own and must receive it from God.


As the moon goes through a
near 30-day cycle of dark to light to dark, so we need constant spiritual
renewal and repentance. Like the moon, we too must be reborn or "born
again" into HaMashiach and constantly renewed through repentance. This is
why God called it a faithful witness in the sky (Mizmor-Psalm 89:37).

If the moon is so important to God, why do we pay so little attention to
it? We have lost touch with God's faithful witness in the sky. But Y'shua
and the people of His day never lost touch with it. And as I previously
noted, not only was the new moon necessary for the Jewish calendar, it was
also a monthly festival celebrated with a feast fit for a king!


So, when
Y'shua said His famous words in Mattityahu-Matthew 24:36, it had
far-reaching implications. Here are the words of Y'shua in a few different
translations:

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but
my Father only. (KJV)

No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
Son, but only the Father. (NIV) But of that day and hour knoweth no one,
not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only. (ASV)
About the exact time, however, and the hour, none knows - not even the
messengers of Heaven; but My Father alone. (Fenton Modern English
Translation)

Failing to think like Y'shua and taking phrases out of Jewish context can
lead one to misunderstand His words. For example, in many places of the
B'rit Chadashah Y'shua knew the future and talked about it openly. In one
instance He warned His talmidim (disciples) about their future saying,
"See, I have told you ahead of time" (Mattityahu-Matthew 24:25). His
context concerned the tribulation, the destruction of the Temple, the rise
and fall of false messiahs (antichrists), etc.


If He knew the future in
Mattityahu 24:25, and the context concerns the Day of Trouble, why would He
suddenly speak as though He did not know the future in the same context
just 11 verses later in Mattityahu 24:36? Was He confused? Or was He making
perfect sense in light of the customs of the Jews?

Since the subject of our discussion is the new moon and figures of speech,
realize the phrase, "Of that day and hour no man knows" refers to the
sanctification or setting apart of the new moon. Without this
sanctification, the Jews had no way of determining God's "appointed times"
or moedim.

Twelve times a year a new Jewish month (Rosh Chodesh) was announced to the
people. We have no system like it today. We look at a calendar to determine
the first of the month; the Jews, however, looked at the moon.


This system
of chronology was given to the Jews to know precisely when the Holy
festivals (moedim) would fall (there are still eight of them; seven
appointed times and Shabbat). The moon was the faithful Jewish calendar or
witness in the sky and 12 times a year was sanctified as the basis of the
Jewish stellar calendar.

GOD'S APPOINTED TIMES

Because the moon was so important for Jewish date - setting, the authorities
in charge of announcing the new moon in Y'rushalayim took great care to
ensure the first day of the month was announced on time. To correctly
announce the first day of the month, established by the new moon, was one
of the Sanhedrin's greatest responsibilities. They had to ensure the people
knew when the first of the month began 12 times a year! Therefore God said
to the leaders of Israel:

These are the appointed times of the Lord, holy convocations which you
shall proclaim at the times appointed for them (Vayikrah-Leviticus 23:4).

In other words, God gave the Sanhedrin authority to announce and sanctify
the new moon to the people. Its proclamation on earth was supported by God
in Heaven (c.f. Mattityahu 18:18-20 where the Jewish context supports a
believers' Sanhedrin as seen in Acts 15).


As soon as the new moon was
announced, the first day of the month began. Once the beginning of the new
month was established, the festivals and weekly Shabbats for the upcoming
month were sanctified for observance. In Hebrew, those observances have
always been called "appointed  times" or moedim, literally "a sacred and
set time".


From God's perspective, the appointed times belong to Him
(Midrash Rabbah Numbers, Vol 2.21.25, p. 852) and no one has the authority
to change the celebration of an appointed time.


To do so was a serious
matter and great sin. Appointed times had to be kept because of their
Messianic implications.

Further in Vayikrah (Leviticus) 23:4, notice the phrase, "holy
convocation". The phrase in Hebrew is mikraw kodesh, better translated,
"holy convocation and rehearsal". In other words, God's appointed times are
actually "holy rehearsals" set apart to reflect events in the Messianic
era. God said to the people,


"Pay attention! On this day I am going to do
something! Wake-up! The Jews were to know and practice all of God's mikraot
or holy convocations. This is the essence of Rav Sha'ul's words that the
Shabbat, new moons and festivals, "are a shadow of things to come; the body
of Mashiach" (Colossians 2:17).

Twice a year, in the spring and fall, there were several appointed times
and specific days of holy convocation dedicated to the Lord. The new moon
was the key in being able to fulfill those set times, holy convocations and
rehearsals.


For example, when the new moon was announced on the first day
of Nisan, also called Aviv, the people knew when to observe the holy
convocations and set times of the 10th (Shemot-Exodus 12:3), 14th and 15th
(Shemot-Exodus 12:6; Bamidbar-Numbers 33:3), 16th (Vayikrah-Leviticus
23:15), and finally the 21st.


In the same way, when the new moon was
announced on the first day of Tishri also called Ethanim, the people knew
when to observe the Holy convocations of the 1st  (Vayikrah-Leviticus
23:23), 10th  (Vayikrah-Leviticus 23:26), 15th  (Vayikrah-Leviticus 23:39),
and 22nd  (Vayikrah-Leviticus 23:36).


Thus from the announcement of the new
moon to the festival dates which followed, it was only a matter of counting
the right number of days. In a moment you will understand how this applies
to the phrase that Y'shua spoke concerning His coming again.

THE SANHEDRIN AND THE TWO WITNESSES

The Mishnah, also referred to as the Oral Law, dealt with the legal
elements of daily Jewish religious life, in Hebrew called halachah. In the
treasure of the first and second century halachah we find many explanations
to help us understand the Torah particularly in Y'shua's day since it was
still oral then.


In volume two called "moed" or festival, tractate Rosh
HaShanah teaches us about the Sanhedrin and its selection process of two
witnesses who would tell us when the new moon arrived. Once a month the
Sanhedrin discussed when to proclaim the new moon. They did this through
the agency of two witnesses, the element of all legal transactions in
Judaism.

One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any
sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the
mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.   Deut 19:15

The men were important because by their witness, Israel celebrated God's
appointed times. They had to be of good character and were always treated
with great honour.


They had special privileges such as authorization to
ride into Y'rushalayim on horseback on the Shabbat to bring the good news
of the new moon festivities! The men had special status because they were
the confirmation that Y'hudah (Judaea)  depended on for the correct timing
of the new month and the festivals.

Rosh HaShanah Chapter 2, Mishnah 5 reads: There was a large court in
Jerusalem called Beth Ya'azek. There all the witnesses used to assemble and
the Beth Din used to examine them. They used to entertain them lavishly
there so that they should have an inducement to come. (The witnesses were
allowed to break the Shabbat travel restrictions for this one purpose lest
they might be reluctant to come and give the essential evidence of the
sighting of the new moon).

Continuing in Chapter 2, Mishnah 6: How do they test the witnesses? The
pair who arrive first are tested first. The senior of them is brought in
and they say to him, tell us how you saw the moon - in front of the sun or
behind the sun? To the north of it or the south? How big was it, and in
which direction was it inclined?


And how broad was it? If he says (he saw
it) in front of the sun, his evidence is rejected. After that they would
bring in the second and test him.


If their accounts tallied, their evidence
was accepted, and the other pairs were only questioned briefly, not because
they were required at all, but so that they should not be disappointed,
(and) so that they should not be dissuaded from coming.

In qualifying the witnesses, the Sanhedrin used the following criteria:
They never arrived at the same time.
They were never questioned at the same time.
There were always two new witnesses each month.

In short, the two qualified witnesses usually stood before the Nassi or
President of the Sanhedrin (Jewish High Court) to give account of the
moon's appearance prior to its becoming total dark (Moed Rosh HaShanah,
Chapter 3, Mishnah 1).


Just before the moon's disk enters total darkness,
there are tiny slivers of white on the edges of the waning disk. These were
called the "horns" of the moon.

Correctly sighting the "horns" (on the
waning crescent) determined the beginning of the new month. Once the two
witnesses were qualified and questioned, if the President (who had
knowledge of astronomy) was convinced their observation was accurate, he
publicly sanctified the start of the new month.

After careful scrutiny to determine the official arrival of the new moon,
the Nassi or President of the Sanhedrin proclaimed Rosh Chodesh with the
words: "Sanctified", and all the people repeat after him, "Sanctified,
sanctified". After the proclamation, the Sanhedrin ordered watchmen on the
nearby hillsides to light fires and thus inform the Jews in all of Y'hudah
(Judaea), Shomron (Samaria), Egypt, Babylon and the galut (diaspora) that
the new month had begun. That started the festival of the New Moon and
counting of the next 29- days to the next new month proclamation.

Again, once the Sanhedrin set Rosh Chodesh, or the beginning of the new
month by sighting the new moon, the rest of the festivals were calculated.
However, the seventh month, Tishri, was particularly important because it
was the only month that had a holy convocation or appointed time on the
first day of the month.


This posed a unique problem. The first day of
Tishri was the appointed time called Rosh HaShanah, the Feast of Trumpets
(Vayikrah-Leviticus 23:24). Yet no one could begin observing the festival
until they heard those famous words from the President of the Sanhedrin,
"Sanctified!"

No one in Israel could plan for the first day of the seventh month Tishri,
called Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets (also called Rosh HaShanah).
When they knew how many days to count to a festival, that would be easy.
But:

HOW COULD THEY PLAN FOR A FESTIVAL THAT THEY DID NOT KNOW AT WHAT DAY OR
HOUR IT WOULD PUBLICALLY BE ANNOUNCED AND THUS BEGIN?

This was unique to Rosh HaShanah and dependent upon the testimony of the
two witnesses. Prophetically, we are informed of two important witnesses
during the Great Tribulation:

And I will give power unto My Two Witnesses, and they will prophesy 1260
days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:3

Of course, anyone could look up into the twilight or early morning sky and,
if they looked hard enough, see the new moon or at least its "horns". And
certainly an astute observer knew when about 29- days were completed since
the previous Rosh Chodesh.

But recall, ONLY THE SANHEDRIN NASSI had the
authority to proclaim the first of Tishri, which was already established as
a technical procedure.


Once proclaimed, the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh
HaShanah) commenced. Until that public announcement by the Nassi, everyone
had to wait before they could begin the observance of the festival. No one
could begin the festival beforehand!


Thus, we can more clearly see the
analogy Jesus made with His words: "But of that day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only" was in regards to
this important festival of Rosh HaShanah.
