January 7 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 9 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 11 – Shevat 1

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

January 25 – 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
  • Asher: Jewish tradition recognizes this date as the birthday of Asher, son of Jacob and Leah’s servant Zilpah. Asher was Jacob’s eighth son, born while he was living in Padan Aram. Genesis 35:26

As we wrap up this journey through the January events on the Bible timeline, we hope you’ve found inspiration and insight into key events of our faith. May this year be a time of deepening your connection with the Scriptures by learning the biblical calendar.
