I'm writing April the 27th AD 2020.

AD is an abbreviation of Anno Domini, which means "Year of the Lord".

Our calendar is based on the year of birth of a man. It's accepted in the Western Culture.
What also is accepted in the Western Culture is that the universe is millions of years old
so we can't really tell what year Jesus was born.

Islamic Calendar is younger and the Chinese calendar is older so we could date the year Jesus was born according to the Chinese calendar.

The knowledge of the age of the universe came available only in the centuries after people started dating from the Year of the Lord, and since when
did people start dating from that year?

We can tell Jesus was born 2020 years ago, but we can't tell when Jesus was born other than from our calendar.

Or can we? You're here to tell me!

When you don't know the past all you have is the here and now.

He was born on Earth sometime between 6bc and 4bc, and likely in around September

remember that King Herod had called for a census at the time, and that's why Mary and Joseph were in Bethlehem at the time. You could go back and see when they had the census

Why would it even matter? It's like humans claim that he was 'God' or just 'God's' son, That really isn't something to worry with.

Many people now accept the date 6 B.C., based on the ruling dates of the various Herods.

The term 1 B.C. means the twelve months before his birth. The term A.D.1 means the twelve months after his birth. (That's why the "Year Zero" concept was never needed and was not used). Notionally, then, for calendar purposes, his birth is assumed to be at midnight of the New Year's Eve between those two years.

There were multiple census. I think you are making things up now. Bethlehem was a small city, perhaps a few people lived there then. Multiple

Jesues was born 6 months after John most likely during the fiesta of Tabernacles in the fall.

From what I read, 0-AD is probably not 0-AD. Also from what I read, Jesus was born between late September to early November. This is from sources who spent a real lot of time looking at evidence. I think they said something about thirteen years off, but I do not remember off hand if he was born thirteen years before or after. The problem with timekeeping was supposed to occur during the dark ages, records got messed up and they compared the time records from multiple cultures to try to figure it out because there were times of no records in many cultures and during the cruisades they destroyed a lot of the monks records and killed the monks.

No one knows, it's all speculation, and from a Christian perspective, I don't see how it's relevant any more than what he looked like.

There are enough records to provide a continuous sequence of public history, like tree rings. The real problem is that the birth of Jesus was not public history. The official date was calculated with some guesswork at an early stage. It faces the difficulty that Herod the Great was already dead.

The phrase "JESUS’ psalter” first noted on June of 1632 within an English legal brief prepared from the Court of the High Commission in London England.

So He was born the same year his name was created, born as in made up.

To me it does not matter what year he was born. The Christian teachings are good teachings, and I did check and evidence shows pretty clearly that Jesus was a real person. His birthday was moved, nobody knew exactly when it was anyway, to a point that coincided close to the 21st of December, the solstice. That was to get more pagans converted to Christianity. I guess consensus was they had to keep it not on the solstice exactly. So they made it the twenty fifth.

I do not know for sure if my info was right, it came from research done by a whole bunch of Christian organizations that wanted to find out as much as they could, they hired a lot of archeologists and specialists to go through all the records. I know the Lutherans, Catholics, and other Church groups were involved. They got to go through the Catholic archives and a lot of what Other Church groups had put together to try to figure it out. Most of what they found out actually was not far off of what they teach about it in Church, but there were some things that were found out that the religions did not accept as real....some stuff about Mary's relationship to Jesus.

But wasn't there another Jesus previous to the 0AD Jesus that fit a similar story? It wasn't very long prior. I saw something on this (and I know it's just a tv show based on speculation) via the Naked Archaeologist. I never really looked into it from there.
