The Hebrew Calendar
The Hebrew calendar is the official calendar of Israel and the religious calendar for Judaism.
The Hebrew Calendar begins with the year of creation as 3761 BC while Usshers Chronology (the basis for our Bible Timeline chart and the dates in the King James Bible) starts with Adam in 4004 BC.
