Watching the moon
Watching for the new moon is an important part of the Jewish calendar. Often it’s obvious but sometimes there are some doubts when the new months starts. Presently the calendar is calculated.

In the end we must simply assume, have faith if you wish, that the observations during Jesus time were accurate.
