Leap Months (30 days) Also Depicted

(In the Hebrew calendar, every 2 or 3 years sees two 12th months called, 1 and 2 Adar. The 360 calendar is similar. See for the leap-month inculcating system of the 360 calendar.)

There were two extra wooden panels (a total of 50) that overlapped ("doubled") two corner panels, which, thereby, strengthened the corners of the tabernacle on the north-west and south-west. If we include these two, we must add another 30 to the 720 sq. cubits; (and 6030 sq. cubits becomes the total of all 5 materials).

It happens that there are '30' days in a month within the 360 calendar. Since the basic 720 sq. cubits depict 360 x 2 days (= 720), hence, the extra '30' must depict a leap month. (360 + 390 days = 750 days.)

As said, the tabernacle ("Temple of Time") is patterned after the solar and lunar year. Symbolically speaking, therefore, for its  leap month to be symbolized by partly hidden corner panels (for the purpose of strengthening the tabernacle) fits well with the purpose of a leap month in the 360 calendar: the leap month is an additional hidden month added to the 360 year, and it calibrates ("strengthens") the 360 year to the true solar year. 

Moreover, the curtains and coverings likewise have leap months included in precisely the same way. They are folded back (hidden) within the 11th curtain. (Each of the 11 curtain segments are 4 by 30 cubits, that is, each curtain symbolically represents four months, 4 x 30 days.) As seen in the above table, this hidden fold backwards accounts for the variations of a seven-year period, (representing the seven days of creation)---the 1260 + 1260, 1260 + 1290, and even 1290 + 1290 can all be seven-year periods on the 360 calendar. The slot any given seven-year span falls upon within the ongoing calendar cycles determines how many leap months should be added. And it happens that these 3 'seven-year' periods represent the minimum and maximum lengths possible during any one 'seven-year' period. Hence, tabernacle dimensions signify the 360 calendar both by normal and by leap-month years; and to a lesser extent, even the Hebrew lunar calendar is represented, (see above "5080".)

Importantly, every 6th board fell upon the join of the 3rd curtain so as to divide the curtain into groupings of 3 x 4 x 30, which is 12 months, or 360 days! The is highly significant.
