Jesus born earlier than thought, claims pope


www.telegraph.co.uk

The entire Christian calendar is based on a miscalculation, the Pope has declared, as he claims in a new book that Jesus was born several years earlier than commonly believed.

The 'mistake' was made by a sixth century monk known as Dionysius Exiguus or in English Dennis the Small, the 85-year-old pontiff claims in the book 'Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives', published on Wednesday.

"The calculation of the beginning of our calendar – based on the birth of Jesus – was made by Dionysius Ex.

Sort of a dubious history book among dubious history books.

This is worth considering when attempting to date the birth of Jesus, and as you may discover, there's a lot more to it than that.

The Pontiff's headgear is shaped like it is because at one point the church sought to bring into the fold pagans who practiced a ritual involving wearing papier-maché open-mouthed fish on their heads.

So you're saying the imaginary birth date of an imaginary man is off. Oh no. Whatever will I do.

This is when an atheist/secular/liberal is trying to sound funny and intelligent. Lets give a round of applause for the sublime sense of humor.

Muslims are blowing people to tiny bits in the name of their religion right now. Seems to be a problem for more than one religion.


Let's be honest about this - "Some" Muslims blow people to bits in the name of "Allah" not relgion.

I may be wrong, but I always thought the Passover was in Spring, i.e. When Christ was cruxified. So that rules out September.

Doesn't life begin at conception? Shouldn't we be celebrating the moment Mary became pregnant?

Yes. It say's Wise Men bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. So people think, aha 3 gifts = 3 Wise Men.

An unwise assumption.

So. if his birth was circa 29th September, then the Church will just celebrate his conception on 25th December. So nothing changes.

That would mean his death would be around about his birthday. So why did the Romans, move it to "Christmas"? Oh, I nearly forgot, they were Pagans. Think about it? Early Christians died instead of worshiping statues, instead of committing blasphemy, instead of legalised murder in the name of an Empire, (war). And what do modern churches do. Pray to statues, put God last and bless bombs. We are nearer to Pagan Rome than we think.

What about the time the Pope told Catholics not to eat meat on a Friday and eat fish instead. I think that's been revoked by the number of Catholics I know who like a sausage supper or a steak on a Friday. So it's ok now, but those Catholics that disobeyed the Pope in the past about Friday Meat Eating are in Hell? I'm confused. Help.

I agree Maxmars, I think one of the best things about Jesus Christ, was his message.

A lot of confusion developed because no one knew exactly how long a year was in the middle ages, resulting that the seasons ''arrived much earlier each year, and festival days, since the typical year was not 365.25 years. Instead it was closer to 360 days as the Jewish people believe. Having a sabbatical year every 7 years, and a jubilee year every 50th year would balance most differences out to balance with the standard of today of 365.25 days in today's time.

The changeover from the Julian Calender to Gregorian Calender in the 1500s messed everything up, since not all the middle European country s accepted the same calendar system as dedicated by the Pope of then who rule over most the whole of Europe.

I thought that the name YHWY translated into English was, "I AM, WHO I AM"?

Who cares if he was Green. It alter's not one iota his message of tolerance and love. Mind you once Christianity married the Roman State, all hell broke loose, changing his message of love down to one of hate, which neither the Great Schism of 1054 or the Reformation of 1517 onwards changed. All you need to know about Christian "Compassion" today, is to look into the face of a member of that Kansas "Church". To quote John 11:35, "Jesus Wept". We have ALL substituted his original message of hope for one of hate. God help us.

If it isn't in the Bible. It is in dispute.


For example, the Bible doesn't give the age of the Earth.
