When Was Jesus Born Part Two

We established that Jesus was not born on 25th December, and even thou it, was a pagan practice even thou the Christian leader enacts Jesus birthday on that day and we should continue to celebrated His on 25th of December. So I am really ok with celebrating His birthday on that day.

The question is when was Jesus born? Since scripture, and historian proven that Jesus did existed.

Someone I knew did some math came up with date when Jesus was born. It was in middle of September or October known as the month of Tishri. According to Jewish calendar this was time where Yom Kippur known as the day of atonement where the high priest enter the Holy Of Holy, and offer a yearly sacrifice for sins of the people and his household. It was most important holiday in the Jewish year. Found in Leviticus 16:6-10 on the seventh month, and the tenth day of the month.For on that day he shall provide atonement for society to cleanse them from their all sins before the LORD.

While there other person thinks, Jesus was born in Nissan {March or April.}. Where Passover was celebrated. When the Israelite people were liberated from the bondage of slavery from the Egyptians. Both important event in Jewish culture

Jesus declares 17 “Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. Matthew 5:17-18

The Jewish people had seven mayor festival

1. Passover (Pesach) – Nisan 14-15

2. Unleavened Bread (Chag Hamotzi) – Nisan 15-22

3. First Fruits (Yom habikkurim) – Nisan 16-17

4. Pentecost (Shavu’ot) – Sivan 6-7

5. Trumpets (Yom Teru’ah) – Tishri 1

6. Atonement (Yom Kippur) – Tishri 10

7. Tabernacles (Sukkot) – Tishri 15-22

8. Jesus fulfilled Passover, unleavened bread First-fruits,

9. Pentecostal.

10. Passover, and unleavened bread was Jesus death on the cross. The first fruits was His resurrection, and Pentecostal, where He established His church. The feast of trumpets and feast tabernacle is His second coming.

In which leave us with us the Day of atonement, or bettor known as Yorn Kipper. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar

Yom Kippur usually fell in September or October each year. The reconciliation of God through the sacrificial-death of goat, lamb, bull, later on Jesus Christ took their place these sacrifice was required

Mark Slick wrote, No one knows for sure what was the month–nor does the Bible mention which day or month when Jesus was born. Various theories have been raised that put Jesus’ birth in March, April, October, and September. But no one knows for sure. He also believe that JESUS was born on first day Yom Kippur He wrote Jesus was born on the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles!  In the year 5 BCE, this fell in the month of September.”

The biblical accounts point to the fall of the year as the most likely time of Jesus’ birth.

Gotta question,Those who propose that Jesus was born in September make their case using the following points: first, at the time of Jesus’ birth, there were shepherds in the fields watching their flocks (Luke 2:8).The weather was too cold and was rainy season.

Remember, the sheep were offered as sin-offering during Passover, the Day of Atonement, and as a daily sacrifice. The average low temperature in Bethlehem in December is in the low-to-mid-forties—the same as Jacksonville, Florida or Vancouver. The sheep and shepherd would adapted weather, and found shelter if it rain.

Second, the idea of a September birth of Jesus includes a consideration of the census affecting Mary and Joseph (Luke 2:1–4). Some argue that Roman censuses would not have been taken in winter, as cold temperatures and poor road conditions would have made participation in a census difficult.

The Roman Government was not concern about the cold temperatures and poor road conditions only their edict to obey by their subject, and soldiers

Third, and most significant, the theory that Jesus was born in September depends on the timing of John the Baptist’s birth. These biblical facts lay the groundwork: John’s father, a priest named Zechariah, was taking his turn to serve in the temple when the angel Gabriel appeared to him and announced that Elizabeth, Zechariah’s wife, would conceive a son (Luke 1:8–13). After Zechariah returned home, his wife conceived, just as the angel had said (Luke 1:23–24).

Note that He does not say that He enters the Holy of Holy. However, it he does say that he entered the temple of the Lord, to burn incense only priest in line Aaron performed this task nor does say what day when He entered the temple when performed this task.
To understand the important of burning incense you need to read Exodus 29-30 understand the duty of priest; in chapter 30 verses 7- 8;  Aaron shall burn fragrant incense on it; he shall burn it every morning when he trims the lamps. 8 When Aaron trims the lamps at twilight, he shall burn incense. There shall be perpetual incense before the Lord throughout your generations .
In (1 Chronicles 24:7–18) David setup a priestly divisions and instituted during Solomon’s reign. However, the Babylonian exile required a “reset” of the divisions and their rotation (Ezra 2). Zechariah’s division could have served in mid-June, but other sources calculate Abijah’s course to have ended on October 9 of that same year.

When Jesus gave up His Spirit

In Matthew 27:51 Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was split in two from top to bottom; the earth quaked and the rocks were split. In Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.

The time of year that Jesus was born is a matter of some debate, but the exact timing of Jesus’ birth is nothing to be dogmatic about, given the Bible’s lack of detail on the subject.

The apostle Paul proclaimed, “When the set time had dully come, God sent His son, born of a woman, born under the law to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship” (Galatians 4:4-5). And we read in the Gospel of Mark, “Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the news of God. ‘The time has come,’ He said. ‘The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” (Matthew 1:14-15).
