As we enter the new year let’s look to see what Biblical events took place in the Bible during this month on January.

January 1 – Tevet 17
New Years Day: Today is the new year throughout the world. The biblical new year begins in the spring. The Jewish civil year begins in the fall.

January 10 – Tevet 26
Baptism of Jesus: Christians traditionally commemorate the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist on this day. John baptized Jesus in the Jordan River. Matthew 3:13

January 12 – Tevet 28
Simeon: Jewish tradition recognizes this date as the birthday of Simeon, son of Jacob. Simeon was the second son born to Leah and Jacob. He lived to be 120 years old.   Genesis 29:33

January 14 – Shevat 1

New Moon/New Month: The month of Shevat begins today. Shevat is pronounced shuh-VAT.

January 28 – Shevat 15
New Year of Trees: Each year trees are planted but it was hard to keep track of how old a tree was in order to fulfill the scriptural mandate in Leviticus. So, a date was set, and all trees planted by Shevat 15 were considered a year older on the next Shevat 15. Leviticus 19:23-25; 26:3-4.
