The Jews found themselves with a God who was ethical and good. Have you ever wondered, "Why is a week seven days long? The seven-day week originates from the calendar of the Babylonians, which in turn is based on a Sumerian calendar dated to 21st-century B.
Seven days corresponds to the time it takes for a moon to transition between each phase: full, waning half, new and waxing half. Because the moon cycle is Jewish tradition also observes a seven-day week.

Holidays will always be on the same day. Each year will begin on a Sunday, and end on a Saturday. Each quarter will contain exactly 91 days, instead of as the present calendar. Printed schedules and calendars will not expire after one year like they do today. Of course, But is. So the world calendar will have a business year of days, and the extra day, at the end of the year, will be a world holiday.
It will not have a name other than "World Day".
The only problem is that the seven day cycle would be broken. At the end of the first year, the day called "Sunday", for example, is really "Monday", according to the seven-day cycle. It gets off by one day per year, except on leap years, which gets off by two days. Therefore, neither a Lunar Calendar Sabbath or a continuous seven-day Saturday Sabbath will conveniently fit into the new calendar. The Biblical Evidence In the Bible, the only times a Sabbath is identified with a numerical date, it is only on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, or 29th.
Likewise, when one of those dates is mentioned, it is always a Sabbath. They are also aware that these feasts do not fall on the same day each year, since they are based upon the moon. However, few people notice that the weekly Sabbath is listed among the other Feasts: " And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
Notice that there is no provision in the scriptures for a situation when a feast day would "clash" with a weekly Sabbath, as happens today. Because they are now using the mixed calendar, the Rabbis have developed "Rules of Postponement" to avoid a clash. For example, they don't want the Day of Atonement to be adjacent to a Sabbath. However, if a Lunar Sabbath is used, then the Day of Atonement is always five days from the Sabbath, and there is never a problem.
Does Paul Condemn Observing God's Holy Days?
Even though the Bible has many details about the feasts, it is silent on "postponements". Because Moses and the Prophets didn't use a mixed calendar, and so they didn't need them. It can be seen that, by calculating the seventh day Sabbath in the same way as the feast days from the beginning of the lunar month , there are no "clashes", nor is there a need to add an extra day. The very fact that these Rabbinical "Rules of Postponement" exist is the "smoking gun" that indicates that the Rabbis are not using the Scriptural Calendar for the seventh day Sabbath!
The Feast of Tabernacles is a seven-day feast, as stated six times in Leviticus The feast begins on the 15th day of the month which is a Sabbath, lasts for seven days, and then the eighth day, the 22nd of the month is a Sabbath. Here's just two of the verses from Leviticus " The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
This will give two Sabbaths in the seven day feast. In order to fulfill Lev. It actually already is the lunar Sabbath, but they don't know it. This is because they are using two incompatible calendars! But when Moses repeats the commandments in Deuteronomy chapter 5, there is something unusual. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Instead, it talks about the exodus from Egypt. When did the Almighty bring them out from Egypt with a mighty hand? People today teach that the Sabbath of Unleavened Bread is different from the seventh day Sabbath. But here they seem to be related, or even the same. They are linked by the Fourth Commandment as recorded in two different renderings. The Fourth Commandment in Deuteronomy 5 clearly references the seventh day Sabbath based on the deliverance from Egypt, which occurred on the evening of the Sabbath of Unleavened Bread.
The Israelites left Egypt on the day after Passover the Sabbath of Unleavened Bread and it was the "fifteenth day of the first month".
