The Metonic Cycle

Hi Robert,

The metonic pattern: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19

​​In order to identify where we are in the pattern, we simply determined the beginning of each year and then noted how many months that meant each year would have.  We first determined the first New Moon Day of the year (Column 4: “New Moon Day”).  Once we had done this for every year, we went back and counted how many months each year would then have (Column 5: “# of Months”).  For example: If the year began on April 4, 2011, and following year began on March 23, 2012, then that Biblical year would have 12 months – since there are 12 lunations between those dates.  After the number of months had been determined (Column 5: “# of Months”), we simply looked for the Metonic pattern (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19). 🙂  It is most remarkable to see how the pattern presents itself.  Hope this helps. 🙂  If it is still not clear, let me know…. and we’ll keep at it until we get there.  Onward and upward, brother.  Much love to you and yours.
