While going through the Book of Ezra, one thing that keeps tripping me up is the timeline. I’ll be doing another post about the Persian Kings, but this one is simply informative about the months mentioned in the Bible.
There are numerous web sites that go really in-depth on this, so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here. For my own sanity I need to include this list in my notes because I keep having to go back and look them up.
Nisan (Abib) – 1st month – March/April
Iyyar (Ziv) – 2nd month – April/May
Sivan – 3rd month – May/June
Tammuz – 4th month – June/July
Ab – 5th month – July/August
Elul – 6th month – August/September
Tishri (Ethanim) – 7th month – September/October
Marcheshvan (Kheshvan or Bul) – 8th month – October/November
Chistev – 9th month – November/December
Tebeth – 10th month – December/January
Shebat – 11th month – January/February
Adar – 12 month – February/March
