    “15th of Nisan, 1921 BC.” Really? Where in the world is that stated? That would be pretty hard to state with confidence unless you knew which year the intercalation cycle started. And the one that the modern Jewish calendar uses is not the one used before 300AD – which is not even recognized by the majority of historicists.

    Also, be very careful basing anything on different word order of Greek. Koine Greek is not a true dialect. It is “translation” Greek from the Aramaic originals.
