This issue was fixed several months ago. We reverted to 12-hour format for Brazil.


Incorrect first of the year

BelieveroftheWord 5 years ago updated by Yeke. 5 years ago 1

And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Exodus 12:1-2

This day came ye out in the month Abib. Exodus 13:4

Even in Esther or rather Hadassah where Nisan is mentioned:

In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.

Hadassah 3:7

Why then does the year remain 5778, when according to the Scriptures we are to be in a new year which would be 5779?

It's bad enough that we have to go elsewhere away from the gregorian calendar to get the correct date, and then to come to this site, which I do appreciate, see that the year is not correct according to the Scriptures.
