The Lunar Sabbath: Deception or Truth?
Is the Lunar Sabbath Calendar a deception?
This site contains everything needed to understand the complex theology of the Lunar Sabbath.
You may be surprised to read that this is a theology and not just observing the Sabbath on a different day of the week. In truth, accepting Lunar Sabbaths also requires accepting some specific theological beliefs that complement the practice rather than contradicting it. This includes observing Pentecost in the fourth month instead of the third, and observing only the First Day of Unleavened Bread (Abib 15) and not the Last Day of Unleavened Bread as a day of rest.
