Iyyar Biblical History
Notes from slides from speaker Shene at MNL on Rosh Chodesh 1 Iyar, May 2, 2022.
- It was during Iyar that the Hebrews provision ran out from leaving Egypt
- The war with Amalek our first national enemy took place right before the Sinai revelation.
- During Iyar, the second year after the Exodus, the Israelites began their travels through the desert with the newly completed Mishkan/Tabernacle in their midst. Exodus 40:17
EEOR IYAR – A month of healing using the iroor, the thoughts of Avraham Ya’akov and Rachel.
Ani Adonai Rofecha – I am Adonai that heals.
When He heals there are no scars, dots or marks. The doctors irape. That is the letter ‘pe’ with a dot.
The first Seder in Month One (Nissan) has no chametz / yeast. This second month seder of eeor, you can have chametz in your house because the first month is the month of miracles. It is not a serif, not an angel, but God himself from above who does miracles.
We see here that The Father’s son was offered up and atoned for our sin. Honoring the ‘second’ seder is about second chances. It is never too late. Yesterday’s missed opportunity is today’s achievement.
Pesach Sheni – 14th Iyar
Transition = Wandering through the desert between Pesach and Shavuot.

Issachar was Ya’cov’s ninth son, his mother was Leah. Ya’cov other wife at the time was Rachel, who had problems conceiving. The back story is in exchange for some roots that would aid her fertility. Rachel traded one of her nights with Ya’cov to Leah. On that night, Issachar was conceived.
This history is important because Jewish sources say that Leah hired Ya’cov for the night, basically renting him for his other wife.
Issachar’s name, therefore, meant “man of hire”, which implied a person whose labor could be bought or rented. From the moment of his conception, Issachar as destined to a life of manual labor.
Issachar & the Tribe
First, Ya’cov describes Issachar’s personality. The personalities of the tribe’s founders would long define the traits of that tribe. Genesis 49:14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens.
This reaffirms descriptions of Issachar as somewhat wild and crass, like a wild donkey kicking and braying. At the same time, a donkey is a beast of burden. Again, remember that Issachar’s name even implied that his life would be one of labor. So, Issachar’s personality was one of workers with somewhat of a wild side.
Issachar’s personality translated into the fate of his tribe. The tribe found pleasant land to settle in once the region of Canaan was conquered and divided between the twelve tribes. It was a fertile land somewhere in the central spans of the region, and the Issachar people eventually became prosperous from their manual labor working the land.
Genesis 30:18 And Leah said, Adonai hath given me my hire because I have given my maiden to my husband; and she called his name Issachar.
Issachar’s tribe was one of the 10 northern tribes that established the King of Israel after the death of King Solomon. At Israel’s first census, the tribe of Issachar consisted of over 54,000 fighting men Numbers 1:29. A large number of people would need more than a small parcel of land.
Revelation 7:7 “Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.”
