An Old Tradition Reveals When Jesus Was Born… It Wasn’t Christmas…

An Old Tradition Reveals When Jesus Was Born… It Wasn’t Christmas…

If Jesus wasn’t born on December on 25th,
then when does the Bible say He was born? It’s actually provable and very simple. In order to identify the time when Jesus was
born, we have to start with John the Baptist… Because we know exactly how many months that
Jesus was born after John. The gospel of Luke shows that before John
was born, his father, Zacharias, was performing his priestly duties in the temple, when an
angel appeared and told him that he and his wife, Elizabeth, would have a son named John.
So, when he finished his priestly duties, he went home, followed instructions… and
Elizabeth became pregnant She conceived shortly after Zacharias came
home from the Temple. So, if we can determine when he served in
the temple, we can know when she became pregnant, when John was born, and finally when Jesus
was born. The priests were broken into 24 groups, or
divisions (1 Chron 24:7-18), with each division serving in the temple for one week at a time
(2 Chron 23:8), from Sabbath to Sabbath (2 Chron 23:8; 2 Kings 11:5).
They continued in their weekly rotation except during the three annual Holy Day seasons when
all 24 divisions served together (2 Chron (2 Chron 5:11).
Zacharias was “of the division of Abijah” (Luke 1:5-8), which was the “eighth” of
the 24 divisions. (1 Chronicles 24:10) In the year 5BC, which many scholars agree
was the year John was conceived, the first group of priests began their service on the
Sabbath of, what today we would call, April 8. Their service then ended the next Saturday,
April 15th. So, the second week in the weekly rotation
was from April 15th to the 22nd. Then the next week was actually the Feast
of Unleavened Bread, when all the priests served together.
This was from April 22nd to the 29th. Divisions 3 through 7 lasted from April 29th
to June 3rd. Then, June 3rd to the 10th was the 8th division,
when Zacharias served in the Temple. But the Feast of Pentecost was actually on
Sunday the next week, when all the priests would be in town from June 10th to the 17th
So, Zacharias would have been serving in the Temple for two consecutive weeks.
It was during this time the angel told him that he and his wife would have a son and
name him John. And, Luke 1 verses 23 and 24 say, “as soon
as the days of his service were completed… he departed to his own house…” (Luke 1:23)
And “his wife Elizabeth conceived.” (Luke 1:24) Assuming she became pregnant during the following two weeks, (June 18th to July 1st), we can
count the normal 40 weeks of pregnancy from that time and know that John would have been
born between March 25th and April 7th in 4BC the following year.
Now that we know the approximate time John was born, we can know when Jesus was born.
Because in the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, Mary became pregnant with Jesus
(Luke 1:26 & 36) Meaning Jesus would have been born right at
6 months after John the Baptist! This would bring us to the Fall of 4BC!
So using this evidence from the Bible, we see that Jesus would have been born somewhere
between September 16th to Sept. 29th, in the Fall of 4BC.
His Fall birth actually corresponds with the chronology given in the gospels indicating
that Jesus was 33 ½ years old when He was crucified in the Spring of 31 AD.
And this Autumn birth would have also been on or around what the Bible calls the Feast
of Trumpets, a day that pictures the return of Jesus Christ! Being able to prove these truths from the
Bible strengthens our foundation as Christians If you found this video helpful, share it

  1. Yes and Shepherds did not have their flocks out by night in the dead of winter, but rather September or October.

  2. Dr. Bullinger writes in Appendix 179 To The Companion Bible that Jesus was born on September 29th: "

    It thus appears without the shadow of a doubt that the day assigned to the Birth of the Lord, namely, December 25, was the day on which He was "begotten of the Holy Ghost", that is to say, by pneuma hagion = divine power (Matthew 1:18, 20 marg.), and His birth took place on the 15th of Ethanim, September 29, in the year following, thus making beautifully clear the meaning of John 1:14, "The Word became flesh" (Matthew 1:18, 20) on 1st Tebeth or December 25 (5 B.C.), "and tabernacled (Greek eskenosen) with us", on 15th of Ethanim or September 29 (4 B.C.). "

  3. I believe Jesus was born on 9/11 and I think he was more thirty-three-and-a-third when he died on the cross during a 3-hour eclipse at 3 p.m.

  4. Jesus was a fellow Libra and John the Baptist a Aries. It seems that people born under these dates and Aquarias and Gemini seem to be influential and great leaders.

  5. My son was born 10 days earlier then predicted, so I believe that Jeshua was the same. Born earlier, on the 11th of September. That's why they destroyed the twin towers on this day to make it uncomfortable for those who wake up to truth. . . . . . . That we have been lied to about every thing! Even the true birthday of the Son of the Father almighty.

  6. The birth of John the Baptist:
    Luke 1:5-25 King James Version (KJV)
    5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

    6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

    7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

    8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,

    9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

    10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

    11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

    12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

    13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

    14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

    15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

    16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

    17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

    18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.

    19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

    20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

    21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.

    22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

    23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

    24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

    25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

  7. Luke 2 King James Version (KJV)
    2 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

    2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

    3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

    4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

    5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

    6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

    7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

    8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

    9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

    10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

    11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

    14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

    15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

    16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

    17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

    18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

    19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

    20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

    21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

    22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

    23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)

    24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

    25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

    26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

    27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

    28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

    29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

    30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

    31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

    32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

    33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

    34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

    35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

  8. how can Christ be born in 6-4 BC? if BC stands for ~Before Christ…. doing simple math would follow that John the baptist is 5 years older than Christ.. not 6 months if he was born in 5 bc…. using "anno domini " would making Jesus' birth 1 AD.. can you please comment in depth on how this can be ? thank you

  9. At the same time the angels went and saw the shepards at night which is in April – June. They saw the sheepards because the sheep were giving birth and the had to protect them from the wolves.

  10. The roman Jesus that was created by Constantine that the whole world worships was born on Dec 25.
    The Hebrew Messiah warned about this many times that false prophets would come and deceive many.
    The Hebrew Messiah Yahusha said "I am come in my Father's name (Yahuah), and ye receive me not:
    if another shall come in his own name (Jesus), him ye will receive." John 5:43.

  11. I hope these people don’t start celebrating Jesus’ birthday in September now. 😂 Birthday celebrations are also rooted in paganism.

  12. The Bible tells us that an angel appeared to Joseph when he, Mary, and Jesus was in Egypt telling him that King Herod died and it was okay to come back. Jesus was 2 years old at this time. King Herod died in 4 B.C., meaning Jesus HAD to of been born in 6 B.C. … Not 4 B.C. as stated in the video. Other than that, the video is dead on.

  13. Thank you for this video. Very Informative, and all right there in our Holy Bible for anyone who wants to check out the Truth. It helps me with trying to explain to others why I do not participate in Christmas.







  15. This video was short and informative, but there's more that we should know so that we won't get it twisted and think that changing to September will make it all right.

  16. Every video I have watched on this has given me a completely different time of the Birth of Christ using facts from The Holy Bible! Geesh!

  17. Jonathan Cahn explains it's Nissan 1 on the first day because all things God makes new He makes on Nissan 1. The first day if the year which he says is the real New Year not RoshAshanna! You would think one consensus could come out, but I guess Satan pushes confusion!

  18. It doesn't matter what date you come up with.
    The fact is there is no evidence that shows that jesus was ever born.
    The stories of jesus originate in the gospels.
    There is no documentary evidence, predating the gospels that mentions jesus or any of the events, in which he was supposedly involved.

  19. Except that the shepherds garding their flocks in the fields and the flocks had babies or whatever they call little sheep or baby lambs. All
    those lambs are all born in the spring. So that would mean Jesus was born somewhere around the middle of April. But since all of the Gospels are mythical and have no relationship to the truth we can throw the whole thing out. It doesn’t matter when an imaginary baby was born.

  20. An interesting video, but I think it starts to go astray at the point where it ASSUMES that John was conceived in 5 B.C. If you attempt to work out a chronology by starting with an assumed date, don’t you think that you’ll end up with another assumed date for the birth of John/Jesus? However, if you do assume that John was born in the spring and that Jesus was born in the autumn, (and there are many good reasons for believing that, but time and space don’t allow for a full explanation here), then you should apply the ONE AND ONLY link to be found in the Gospels that connects an event in the life of Jesus with a recognised and fixed date in secular history.

    Luke Ch 3 provides this link; it states that Jesus "was about 30 years old" at the time of His Baptism, (according to the Law, a male was to begin priestly duties at the age of 30). When Luke uses the word ‘about’ he always means almost exactly, or, to within a few days. As Jesus was 30 at His Baptism, then it follows that John was also 30 at the start of his ministry. Luke 3: 1, links this beginning as taking place in the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar, a year about which there is absolutely no doubt. Augustus Caesar died on 19th August A.D. 14 and the reign of Tiberius is reckoned from this date. Therefore, counting from the death of Augustus, “the 15th year of Tiberius” ran from August 19th A.D. 28 until August 19th A.D. 29. So now we can state with certainty that Jesus was Baptised at the age of 30, in the year A.D. 29, and from this we can know that He was born in the year 2 B.C. and it then follows that He died on (14th Nisan) 3rd April A.D. 33.

    Although I am unable to fully substantiate the above dates here, there is ample proof available which can not only demonstrate that the years are correct but that the actual dates of Jesus’ birth and death are also accurate. Jesus lived on this earth from (Tishri 1st) 29th September 2 B.C. until 3rd April A.D. 33, a total of 12,240 days. It is worth noting the following: the number 2 is associated with Jesus as the Son of God, the 29th September was the second day of the week, a Monday: similar number associations can also be seen in His death on the 6th day, Friday, and His Resurrection on the 8th day, Sunday: 8, linked to resurrection, is the 3 times repeated number, 888, of His name, Ἰησοῦς: 153 (John 21: 11), is linked to the Saints. 12,240, the days Jesus was on earth, is the product of 8 x 10 x 153: again, 153 is the sum of all the whole numbers from 1 – 17 and 17 is the 7th prime number: Jesus life was 2 x 17 x 360 days, or exactly 34 ‘prophetic’ years. There is more that could be said on this subject.

  21. Very good point of view ! Question : the author of the video is using the Gregorian calendar ? Right ? What will be the date if he uses the The Hebrew calendar that is a lunisolar calendar, meaning that months are based on lunar months, but years are based on solar years. Will the date of birth be the same?

  22. I go for Year -8. 25th November under the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus . That's why the Babylonian (Chaldean) astrologers came . that is how name of jesus was choose. The second choice is Jupiter – Saturn conjunction 26th September year -6

  23. It is a debate that may never answered though I like this explanation. There is a different video that " proves?" Our Lord was born in March. Which one , why and how do we know for sure?

  24. Hmmm. Maybe or ….. maybe not. Have you heard of the Chinese who recorded the comet that lasted 7 months? Also at it's appearing the Son of the Most High God was born. It also corresponds with Purim mentioned in the book of Ester. That is said to believe between February and April. I have heard two dates on this. One being February- March and the other March-April. There are YouTube videos on the Chinese and their ancient writings.

  25. Why do people put all their faith in god religions , mans hand wrote the bibles and books that people read and worship but , man is the biggest liar and man can not be trusted to report truth, so why do people believe , man lies

  26. “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:1-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  27. The beauty of this is that Jesus was conceived at the end of December. This is the time of the Feast of Dedication – Hanukkah, called the Festival of Lights. Jesus was then born around the end of September…beginning of October. This is the time of Feast of Tabernacles, which includes trumpets, day of atonement, and Sukkot…Tabernacles. So…God's timing is this…The light of the world came to Tabernacle with us…Hallelujah!!!

    To further prove this point concerning Jesus' birth. He started His earthly ministry at the age of 30, as in Jewish culture you are not an adult until reaching the age of 30. Jesus' ministry lasted 3 1/2 years. Jesus died at Passover. If you count backwards 3 1/2 years from Passover you land on Feast of Tabernacles.

  28. He was 40. Born in 9B.C. 40 days and 40 nights in the this jungle. Sivan 13. Happy birthday Messiah.

  29. So September 16 to September 29, mayge he was born 22nd or 23rd ? We could start celebrating His Birth for 14 days rather just 1 day as why does the queen have 2 birthdays. We need to ditch December 25th so we need to ask the Lord for him to deliver the revelation of when he was really born. I spit on the romans false sun god and all the FALSE Christs that claim the 25th

  30. Please don't let this divide us as believers, truth will come out and there are mysteries that we don't know why. Jesus was born for our salvation and that is what really matters. I will continue as always I love to sing Handel's Messiah and it's in the first week in December. Let's not divide because one celebrates in December and another in the fall or spring. He, Jesus Christ was born to die for our sins.

  31. the video was nice but I dont really care anymore about when Christ was born,it is enough that He was born be it APRIL OR AUGUST OR EVEN SEPTEMBER coz in any case He still saved me from my sin

  32. You got to check out the Bible Jesus nobody knows when he was born for the simple reason it wasn't in Winter he have Pampers on that's it and living in all animals there was no place for him to be so they put him in that little thing to this day they celebrate Christmas on the 25th which is he rocks birthday he was a menace guy in the world he married his mother they killed him then what happened around I don't know what you burst I forgot but I'm not looking at it now he was buried know he was made into a tree or something that people had to carry him and people put lights and they used to put presents under the tree that means that we're bowing down to an idle when she married his mother they no such thing as Christmas Christmas Means Christ dead so you got to look at the Bible nobody knows when Jesus was born so everything is in the Bible there's nothing to be putting in or nothing to take a they were only Twelve Apostles the last one was Apostle play what's his name Paul and people nowadays want to be call themselves what is a reading the Bible everything is in the Bible is nothing new and everything is written already there's not fossils nowadays or whatever they want to call themselves The only false prophets like women are not supposed to be preaching that supposed to be taking care of the men Timothy 2:11 around there doesn't take care of the husband of children in the house and be quiet sitting down and when the man dies the preacher dies that put another man on only Deborah for some reason she was preaching only her in the world but nowadays women want to do what they want to do that's for the goalie so corrupted you got to check out the Bible real good I don't know if it was you know I'll check out window supposed to say They Carried him and you don't hear that he was made into a tree that's what Christmas trees all the time on the 25th and then the baby still there would you Jesus already died at 33 years old he was crucified he why didn't put him in the backwards I mean every year they're bowing down Toradol that's not of God the items so you are being you are od'ing if they lie to I will find out where is it in the Bible I think you some Jeremiah 10:11 around there you said someone killed him that was your mother's husband Herald Sun Ian from the Run King Jacksonville Jacksonville Suns that's why there's so many children that killed their mother because they didn't kill the spirit of a child when he was being born you got to kill the spread when your child is being born you got to bring to them belly take him out the spirit of Jezebel stunts that's still around God bless all of you. Don't know so I got you in prayer

  33. you may find your calculations way off, if your using a modern calendar . a Hebrew calendar would be very different especially 2018 years ago and why would Jesus be born in BC? it means Before Christ

  34. Or…you could look in the Bible…Luke 1:26
    “In the SIXTH MONTH the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin…” a lot of translations say “in the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy” but that is not in the Greek. The sixth month is a month on the Hebrew calendar corresponding to August/September for us. Later on we find out that it was also the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy. She is six months pregnant on the sixth month.
    Mary conceives in the sixth month and could give birth in the third month around the feast of Pentecost (the birth of the church). The law was given to Moses around this time. The Holy Spirit arrived also on this date.

    The course of Abijah moves around based on a six year cycle. In the third year, he was scheduled at the temple for the third week in the 11th month. In the third year he was scheduled for the 2nd week of the 12th month. Either of these could have resulted in Elizabeth being pregnant six months in the sixth month. You can find the information for the priestly courses in the Dead Sea scrolls.
