This Bible feasts calendar (below) covers the dates of Jewish holidays from 2018-2022 and also compares Gregorian calendar dates with the Jewish calendar. An easy way to calculate the Jewish calendar year is to add 3761 to the Gregorian calendar year.

Today, most Western nations use the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the solar calendar—the position of the sun among the constellations. It is called the Gregorian calendar because it was established in 1582 by Pope Gregory VIII.

The Jewish calendar, on the other hand, is based on both solar and lunar movements. Since the Jewish day begins and ends at sunset, the holidays begin at sundown on the first day and end at sundown on the evening of the last day shown in the calendar below.

The New Year of the Jewish calendar begins on Rosh Hashanah (September or October). 

These feasts are principally celebrated by members of the Jewish faith, but they have significance for Christians as well. Paul said in Colossians 2:16-17 that these festivals and celebration were a shadow of things to come through Jesus Christ. And although Christians may not commemorate these holidays in the traditional biblical sense, understanding these Jewish festivals can broaden one's understanding of a shared heritage. 

The Jewish name for each holiday in the table below is linked to more in-depth information from the perspective of Judaism. The Bible feast name is linked to a detailed profile of each holiday from a Christian perspective, explaining the biblical basis, traditional observances, seasons, facts, and an interesting section discussing the fulfillment of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, as expressed through each of the feasts.
