This is something that has been coming up lately in email questions and postings on Youtube. “Is the Full Moon really the New Moon?” At first I recoiled at such a question and then I realized there are all of a sudden a couple people in the Hebrew Roots movement actually pushing this teaching as ultimate truth and ridiculing anyone who questions it. This is absolutely ridiculous and absurd and is a direct result of misinterpreting scripture.
119 Ministries has done an extensive study on this argument and has laid it out in a very detailed fashion. If you encounter this silly argument, I hope you will do your homework and test it against scripture.
Let me add that just because someone teaches this “full moon” idea, doesn’t mean we should throw out all of their teachings. Scot Dryer, who I really respect on a lot of levels and whom I believe is very talented in reading and understanding many things is just wrong on this topic in my opinion. I go back and examine scripture and I just have no idea how he comes to this conclusion.
With all teachings, examine scripture and test it. Eat the meat, spit out the bones.
