    Actually we're not sure the day Jesus was born...it's celebrated on December 25th because that was traditionally the winter solstice and the longest night of the year - Christ comes into the world, and the world literally becomes brighter (because the days get longer after the solstice).

    BOOM. unsolicited historical knowledge for ya. icon_wink.gif

    Also easier to get those pesky vikings to just swap god to do their Yule sacrifice to by just claiming the Son was born just after the Winter Solstice (which occurs on Dec 20th or 21st depending on the year.

    And while we're on the subject... If Marys Boy Child actually was born then it most likely wasn't in Year One. The Emperor Augustus did his everybody-go-to-the-village-you-were-born-to-be-taxed-properly three times, in 28 B.C., 8 B.C. and 14 A.D.

    Oh thank you, Clark.

    Now with your fine knowledge, could you clarify for me when Jesus ran the moneychangers out of the temple? Was it at the beginning of his ministry or at the end? Enquiring minds want to know. ... icon_biggrin.gif

    WELL - In Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels), this occurs at the end of Jesus' ministry, while in John the story is at the beginning. However, it isn't exactly possible to determine which time frame is correct, especially only using the Gospels. This is because although the Gospels are based on historical events (in my belief - not trying to argue a point, just offering my perspective), they aren't written as historical works. The Gospels were each written by a specific author to a specific community - they are essentially a series of sermons, sharing the message of Jesus. Because each Gospel was written for a different community with an author that had specific points he wanted to make about the life of Jesus and his message, the order of events and stories told change somewhat from Gospel to Gospel.

    So to put it simply - it doesn't really matter, because the Gospels are narrative sermons, not history books.

    Sorry to bomb this thread with all that, just wanted to answer completely. If anyone wants to talk about Religion/Theology/Religious tradition feel free to hit me up, as I am clearly a nerd about it.

    Merry Christmas!

    Yes I knew about the Vikings too! But Jesus would have to have been born between the times the Cyrenius was governor of Syria and when Herod died. It's all rather confusing. Like I said in the post I just wrote - the Gospel isn't written as a history book, so it isn't going to give you the straight answers we all would like. icon_smile.gif
