14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:14-18 teaches us that the ancient Biblical calendar is based upon the lights in the heavens, namely the sun, moon, and stars. This video examines one particular heavenly light - the sun - by recognizing how civilizations in antiquity tracked the path of the sun to tell time. This will aid the viewer greatly in understanding terms like equinox and solstice, and will give documentation that the Hebrews did use the equinoxes (spring and fall) as determiners within their calendar. This video was comprised by Matthew Janzen of Ministers of the New Covenant.
