Please Note Update comment (2014):

At the time this article was written, I did not have full understanding of the identity of the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which we now know was the exiled Zadok priesthood and not the “Essenes” as has been traditionally defined. This expose on the identity of the authors of the Dead Sea scrolls is referenced from the book “The Three Temples” by Prof Rachel Elior, 2011, which presents an overview of the Zadok solar calendar and how this points to the existence of an alternate ancient “Judaism” existed prior to the existence of Talmudic Rabbinic Judaism.

Consequently all references in this article of the “Essenes” should now properly be read as “the exiled Zadok priesthood”.


This paper explores how astronomical, historical and biblical evidence directly points to Yahushua’s Passover meal as described in Mark 14:12-26 as being

1) a most significant lawful Passover and not a “last supper”,

2) that Yahushua’s very timing of His Passover meal speaks loudly concerning the biblical calendar He is observing,

3) the timing of the astronomical events occurring in that year, together with the biblical account of Yahushua’s behaviour reveal that neither the conjunctive moon (Pahrisee/Rabbinic) nor the first sliver new moon (Sadducee /Karaite) religious calendars were observed by the exiled Zadok priesthood (the “Water Carriers” traditionally labeled as the “Essenes”) while the Rabbinically dominated Temple calendar was using the conjunctive moon occur closest to the vernal equinox as its anchor in the days of Yahushua Messiah.
