The month that contains Passover is the new year
"This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year.
Exoudus 12:2 NIV
In the first month you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day
Exodus 12:18 NIV
So why do people claim Rosh Hashanah is the new year?
Some Jewish people told me there are 4 new years, but only two Rosh Hashanah and Passover are in the Bible.
They said Rosh Hashanah is the new year for counting years, but Passover is the new year for counting months. (Although the new year technically starts a few days before passover.)
I asked them if the Bible actually says Rosh Hashanah is the new year and they could not so me where, it says it is the new year.
Does anyone know the answer to this.
I have noticed that orthodox "jews" actually add a lot of rules that are not in the Old Testament and subtract a lot of rules that are. I am wondering if this is another such a case.
