The date method that I think tends to yield the better date stems from astronomy and the story of the Magi. The Essene were most knowledgeable of
the stars and Jesus birth appeared totally planned to make a Messiah. Signs from the heavens were all part of their plans.
The churches didn't have the power to predict the ancient alignment of planets that we have now and this tends to show a better date for the Jesus
Date of Birth.
So, to add more fuel to the fire that the church just picked a date to line up with Pagan concepts for Sun Worship, this alignment of the planets to
make the Star of Bethlehim appears a huge clue for a better date:
Jesus was born in June', astronomers claim
Astronomers have calculated that Christmas should be in June, by charting the appearance of the 'Christmas star' which the Bible says led the three
Wise Men to Jesus.
They found that a bright star which appeared over Bethlehem 2,000 years ago pinpointed the date of Christ's birth as June 17 rather than December
The researchers claim the 'Christmas star' was most likely a magnificent conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter, which were so close together
they would have shone unusually brightly as a single "beacon of light" which appeared suddenly.
Using the St Matthew's Gospel as a reference point, Mr Reneke pinpointed the planetary conjunction, which appeared in the constellation of Leo, to
the exact date of June 17 in the year 2BC.
