RELATED VERSES

Joshua 5:6-7 

6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord: unto whom the Lord sware that he would not shew them the land, which the Lord sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

7 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.

Joshua 4:19 New King James Version (NKJV)
19 Now the people came up from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they camped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho.

GREGORIAN CALENDAR (THE ONE YOU HAVE ON YOUR DESK OR WALL)

Christian Biblical Calendar Converter Abbreviations: BC/AD (Before Christ/Anno Domini) or BCE/CE (Before Common Era/After Common Era)

The Gregorian calendar is sometimes called the Christian calendar or Western calendar. Some calendar scholars reference the Julian calendar, which is similar but lacks modern leap year corrections.


HEBREW CALENDAR (THE ONE IN THE BIBLE)

Abbreviations: AM (Anno Mundi – Latin: “in the year of the world”, Hebrew: “from the creation of the world”)

The Hebrew calendar is sometimes called the Biblical calendar or Jewish calendar, which draws from the Old Testament and calls creation the start of year 1. Converting the calendar is sometimes tricky because the first day of the year 1 is not January 1st.
 

ANCIENT HEBREW CALENDAR CONVERTER

The above tool allows you to enter either the Gregorian calendar date (like 2015, 2016 or 2017) or the Hebrew calendar date and switch between the two.
