THE REAL MESSIAH BLOG: The commemoration of the Jubilee

The commemoration of the Jubilee

by Rory Boid (personal correspondence)

The coming of the Jubilee Year is announced with the special blowing of the shofar on the Day of Atonement on the 10/7/49 as said. However, it is mentioned in the liturgy of the first day 1/7/49 which is the start of the period leading up to the Day of Atonement. If it is a 6th year, the coming 7th year is mentioned. We have examples of this liturgy going back many centuries. This part is there in the very oldest mss.

That means that the COMMEMORATION of a Jubilee year lasts EXACTLY a year and a half.
