Nobody counts years this way. There are not 4 weeks in a month under *any* reckoning. The Jews used a lunar calendar where each month was 29 or 30 days. 12 lunar months is 354 days. This is short of a solar year by 11 days. Since Passover had to fall out in the spring, a leap month was added 7 out of every 19 years.

If you're going to invent your own math you can prove basically anything, including that 1=0. Have at it.

*"For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.*

**Isaiah 54**
