Did the Star of Bethlehem/Jesus' Birthdate occur on April 17, 6 BC? Maybe. So what?
Except that whilst it might well have been BCE, it can't have been BC.
Anyway, 25 December is a far better time for a pissup - just time to get sober before the New Year pissup.
No problem. The stuff slides down very smoothly, thanks.
Simply identifying one astrological date round about the time Jesus was born doesn't have any significance because we don't have any credible evidence of his actual birthday, and even if we did, and it was, coincidence is not an indication of significance.
In fact the only credible date we have is of the census of Judea, which took place about 12 years after the exceptional astrological occurrence.
Other occultations of Jupiter occur about 4 times every year.
Seriously? Jesus son of Joseph is the most important figure in history and if it is established that a BIG event in the heavens marked his birth, then that would be a proof of GOD/God-incarnate.
Luke also wrote that Joseph and Mary had to go to Bethlehem for a census by Quirinius while she was still pregnant, and this event has been dated at 6 A.D., or ten years after Herod the Great died in 4 B.C. There have been no historical records to indicate that any Roman census was held prior to 6 A.D.
I would sooner believe that alien craft are being referenced in the Bible
and that Jesus was an alien hybrid implanted into the virgin Mary
than some mystical alignment of solar planets producing an heir of a non physical omnipotent being.
Are you an atheist that refuses to accept any evidence of GOD & God-incarnate? Are you willing to read Molnar's book?
1. You can't take the Bible (Old or New Testament) as a historical account of anything.
"And Jesus son of Joseph" Is this not slightly blasphemes when the blessed virgin tells us he was conceived when the holy ghost came upon her.
