I’m currently in the process of combining all of my prior jubilee research, in addition to doing new research. I’ve posted some videos showing this on my YT channel, but the new research shows how the significant events that fall on the jubilee timeline also relate to significant events related to the kings of Judah. I am working backward from the destruction of the temple.
For those of you who know, my previous research involved data sets that looked at 1407 and 1406 BC as potential dates Israel entered the Promised Land. Those can no longer be possible since the final jubilee years they would lead to (70th jubilee) are 2024 (for 1407) and 2025 (for 1406). There is no longer enough time for the 70th Week. However, I have a lot of research coming down the pipe for this new book, and it begins by looking at 1405 and seeing how many other years could possibly be in play, considering the many other related data points in the data set. The Bible isn’t unclear about the calculations of all these things. I just wasn’t alive back then to be able to verify which year these things happened, and there are so many sources that contain differences.
Anyway, here’s an interesting detail about Psalm 90. Moses wrote this Psalm between Numbers and Deuteronomy. Everyone, or most everyone, knows about Psalm 90:10…
The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Lots of people try to link that to Israel coming back in the land and whatnot. Here’s the thing. What did Numbers end with? What did Deuteronomy begin with?
Numbers 36:2 And they said, The Lord commanded my lord to give the land for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters.
They were preparing to enter the Promised Land whereby land would be given for inheritance to the tribes, by lot. Deuteronomy 1 tells us the time period they were in.
Deuteronomy 1:3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the Lord had given him in commandment unto them;
The first day of the 11th month was 70 days before they entered the Promised Land. According to Joshua 4:19, they came up out of the Jordan on the east border of Jericho and encamped in Gilgal on the 10th day of the 1st month.
11th month – 30 days
12th month – 30 days
10th day of 1st month – 10 days
And what was Israel given the command by God to do on the day they entered the Promised Land?
Leviticus 25:1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord.
70 days from the writing of Psalm 90, they were to enter the land and begin a count (sabbatical cycles) that would lead to a declaration of 70 (jubilees).
And how do we know Jesus will return in a jubilee year? Because the Bible says so.
Isaiah 34:8 For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
And my personal favorite, because it makes this concept very clear.
Isaiah 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
There is much to say about the concept of Jubilee, and we know the legal aspect of it has already been fulfilled, but the major and minor prophets tell us the jubilee year will again factor in. Regardless of whether Israel celebrated them or not makes no difference. God gave the method of counting all the way back in Leviticus, and that’s the standard that holds true until the end of time. The proof is in the fact that so many Biblical events fall on the jubilee timeline, and it’s easy to see when all drawn out.. which is what I’m working on.
So, IF… IF… IF 1405 is the date they entered, the final jubilee would be as follows. And if they didn’t, it’s on to 1404 BC.

Hi Heather. Ironically, just before this site came back online, I had been watching a couple of your videos. I really appreciate your diligent, studious approach and your willingness to share your findings with the rest of us. I have learned quite a bit from you. Thank you. Hopefully, you won’t be having to do too much more research, if you catch my drift. Maranatha!!!

So good to see your continued research on this. I had a few questions. It seems to me that Jesus would have started his ministry in a jubilee year given his quote of Isaiah as recorded in Luke 4. However, your chart skips from AD 17-18 to AD 66-67. I guess this would bring into question the start of the jubilee years in 1405. What I found fascinating is if we took the beginning of Christs ministry say 29-30 AD we would end up with 2029-2030 as the 2nd coming which ironically coincides with the 2030 agenda of the NWO.
The other question is I heard somewhere that Jubilee years aren’t counted if Israel isn’t in the land. Would that not negate the jubilee years between 70AD and 1948? Just a couple of thoughts I had on your research.

Some of my research as of late has been to explain exactly that! I’m so glad you brought it up. The answer to the proclamation of jubilee in Luke 4, relating to Isaiah 61, was NOT done in a jubilee year. It was, however, done on the Day of Atonement which was the beginning of Jesus’s ministry. The proclamation of jubilee was done in accordance with Leviticus 25:9. The mistake people make is making Leviticus 25:9 and Leviticus 25:10 a package deal. Not so.
Lev 25:8 tells how many sabbaths of years Israel was to keep – 49.
Lev 25:10 tells Israel to hallow the 50th year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land. The 50th year is also year 1 of the next jubilee cycle.
Lev 25:9 is different. We have to keep in mind the law was a shadow of things to come with the body being Christ’s. Jesus fulfilled Lev 25:9 on the Day of Atonement, which is again, when His ministry began. He assumed the role of Lev 16’s scapegoat at His baptism, taking Israel’s sins away.
Lev 16, Lev 25:9, Matthew 3-4:1, Luke 4, and John 1 all relate to the Day of Atonement and the proclamation of jubilee by Jesus.
Leviticus 25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
The mistake people make is assuming Leviticus 25:9 was to happen in a jubilee year. It was not. It was merely to happen on the Day of Atonement. And the OT translation of jubilee to the NT is simply liberty via the forgiveness of sins. That’s why the assumption of the role of the scapegoat at the beginning of Jesus’s ministry was so fundamental to Him being able to extend forgiveness to the people. He had already agreed to bear their sins.
I find it best not to try to make the location of the jubilee years fit with external events regarding Israel’s past. That’s where issues get confused. Best to just start at the beginning like Lev 25:2 tells us to do.

Thanks Heather. Interesting insight on Jesus’ being the scapegoat as he was baptized and then went into the wilderness just as the scapegoat was to be released into the wilderness to carry away the sins of Israel. I had never quite seen that connection before.
I guess I’m a bit confused with Jesus proclamation reciting Isaiah 61. If He had been accepted by the Jews as Messiah first time would that not have been considered a year of Jubilee? Would the year of Jubilee still have been another 30 years off? I know it’s speculation, but when Jesus came and proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom the first time potentially the Jews could have accepted it. Now we know God is all knowing and knew that wasn’t going to be the case so the timing of the Jubilee year as it related to Christ’s first coming may be moot.
Maybe I’m going down a rabbit trail on this, but it just seems like the timing of a jubilee year would have somehow coincided with Jesus’ earthly ministry.

- You’re right about the possibility of accepting the kingdom the first time. That’s where prophecy and foreknowledge come in. God knew they weren’t going to accept Jesus the first time and gave us a way to understand the “when” of the second chance. No, Palm Sunday wasn’t a jubilee year, because Israel was never going to corporately accept the first presentation of the Kingdom.

Ok so addressing the confusion with Jesus quoting from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4. Proclaimimg the acceptable year of the Lord = Repent ye for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.
It’s what His entire ministry served to do (Matthew 4) and what He instructed His disciples to preach in Matthew 10, as well. It didnt have to do with that year. It had to do specifically with the presentation of the Kingdom. That’s what Daniel’s 70 Weeks are all about… the two presentations of the Kingdom. Jesus was prophesying about Palm Sunday, but they knew not the time of their visitation, as Luke 19 says. Hence, the coming of the Kingdom was delayed and many other events set into motion, beginning with blindness being cast over Israel’s eyes.
