is there any evidence that Bible (Tanach) support a calendar with 360 days years?

I'd like to know whether there is in any part.
My ask is because of this christian prophecy:

That's a good question. I'm currently researching the Daniel 70 weeks prophecy in order to determine if all 70 weeks are fulfilled. This only leaves a 7 year margin of error. Some claim that the last week (of years) is set apart for the future, and there will be a 7 year tribulation. I have some doubts about that. A year to me is a year, not 360 days. I believe the Hebrew calendar was set up so that on the 49th year there would be an equalization of the time of a year. But it seems odd that they would not just use solar observations to adjust the year each year. What would be more likely is at the end of each year there was a period of 5 days that were not any given month, this may be the passover period, but I"m just guessing.

Yeah, it is very strange.

It seems that the prophecy was prepared by christian religion, but it is a superficial view on this.

Let's wait another opinion on that.

thanks for you comments

The words in Daniel stand by themselves and are not "prepared by christian religion", as you say - they were written during the Babylonian exile about 600 BC.

There are other people who have noted the use of 360-day years in the Bible:

This article does a good job explaining the 12-month year with a thirteenth month added occasionally to correct the synchronization: http://www.servantsnews.com/docs/calbas.htm

The actual scriptures of Daniel are there, in the original Hebrew manuscripts. The Christians did not tamper with it. Just some sects of Christians may have mis-interpreted the 70 years to be a non-contiguous period of time. All this points to the first advent of the Messiah Jesus Christ.

The Jewish calander was based on the Babylonian one. You might find this link useful

If the Jewish calendar is based on the Babylonian calendar in that link, then it doesn't mattter if a year is 360 days or 22 days, a year is one full trip around the Sun, which back then may have been around 364 days, but even then it doesn't matter, becuase nobody is counting days, they are counting years. I had heard a theory that they went by moons until the 49th year of Jubilee then adjusted it by adding 5 days. I haven't had a chance to check into it, but I'm studying eschatology, and I am a conservative fundamental Christian.
