There is a repeating theory of when a Day begins

Our Leader began keeping day to day starting from morning till morning as Even including Shabbat. What do you think about this? We do not agree with our leader on this.

He Begins a day from Morning when the sun rises instead of sunset as evening. He says that even in scripture means morning to morning as a day not evening to evening. He says that evening to evening is Jewish tradition.

I have taken over as Leader for the congregation. Our congregation voted for me to take over to keep this teaching from poluting our group and new commers.

This discussion belongs in the Calendar Debate group. 


There is already a thread there proving the evening to evening day from the Scriptures:

Bro James is correct, this belongs to the Calendar Debate, but go note what Solomon said with the inauguration of the Temple about YHVH and darkness and also note the great sin at the latter stages of 1st Temple that was revealed to Ezekiel. It is best not to follow a person who thinks that he can devise his own calendar.

I've heard that there were two distinct reckonings of days in ancient Israel: the work-day was reckoned from sunrise to sunrise because labor was carried out in the light of the day. This explains why Adonai called the light "Yom" which also means day or period in Gen. 1 contrasting with the darkness which was called "laylah". If we look at the context of Gen. 1 its a week of work.
But as for the reckoning for holy days it was definitely evening to evening. From the debates I've seen this seems to be the only happy medium that can explain both sides.
