The Biblical Feasts

The Appointed Times of the Almighty God

The Zadok Priestly Calendar


And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons (mow’ed), and for days and years.


Calendar Overview:

• The Zadok Priestly Calendar uses the Torah, Prophets, & New Testament in collaboration with Enoch, Jubilees, and other documents found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, recorded in great detail for us by the Sons of Zadok, descendants of Aaron, the High Priest.

• This 364 Day Calendar, consisting of 52 Weeks, uses the celestial witnesses given to us in Genesis 1:14 to determine the start of the year and stay on course throughout. The 4th Day of the Week (Wednesday) after the Spring Equinox begins each year, landing the Moedim, God’s Biblical Feasts, same day and date each year. This allows the Moedim to never fall on a weekly Sabbath, confirmed with David’s 52 Sabbath Psalms, found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

• Most importantly, this calendar helps us piece together with precision, Biblical timelines, especially the death, burial and resurrection of our Savior Y’shua (Jesus), as we know these days are all pointing to Him!


• 364 Days – 52 Weeks – 7 Days Per Week, 13 Weeks Per Season
• 12 Months of 30 Days, with 4 Intercalary or Seasonal Days
• Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter *3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th months*
• Months are based on the counting of the Chodesh, using the sun, moon and stars as a witness
• Contrary to common use of the New Moon for months
• The Son’s of Zadok tracked the moons in the scrolls, but not for the beginning of months.
