Jesus' Birth

Perhaps there was a sun miracle on Jesus' birth in the same seventh month, the Jewish new year, as Joshua's long day.

The key may be an unusual recorded lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC.

Job 3:6 "As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months."

Isaiah 13:8 "And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger."

The night of Jesus' crucifixion was a dark lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse was partial so it would not cause a blood red moon. The lunar eclipse may have lasted 60 hours. If the sun and moon stood still as seen from earth, the sun should be dimmed purple and the moon look blood red as it stood still. Thus the night was not joined by the day. Thus the regular time of the night and day had long elapsed before there was morning. Also, earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun that Friday night April 3 33 AD. Then Saturday night about 9 PM earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. So this day Saturday April 4 33 AD is not really joined with the rest of the reverse orbit year. Moreover, when the earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun, the earth went backwards one day in a regular orbit. Thus, as far as the movement of the earth in orbit around the sun there is no trace of that Saturday or Friday. Even that Saturday the sun appears to have risen in the west and set in the east.

Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee."

Now for the record of the lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC: Perhaps there was a sudden sunrise after the angels appeared to the shepherds on Jesus' birth. Job uttered these words in Job 3:6 of the day of his birth for the suffering he went through. How much more Jesus suffered. There is record of a lunar eclipse the night after the fast when the High Priest Matthias asked his kinsman to stand in for him at the temple because of an unholy dream. Josephus records the moon was blood red. This rather indicates a sun miracle when the moon standing still in the sky, with the sun, should appear blood red. For this Herod had Matthias' wife's brother made High Priest. There is a slim possibility this may be my ancestor because my Y-DNA was R1b1 Cohen possibly High Priest at least 60 generations ago with 30 years to a generation. This suggests the lunar eclipse was a night after the day of Atonement - the only time the High Priest went into the Holiest of Holies. Herod was so disgusted he had this High Priest executed. Another Matthias had the Roman gold eagle removed from the temple. He too was executed. There is the possibility this eclipse was at the same time a sun miracle. A sun miracle like the one the night of the crucifixion. Perhaps this was the reason the day was not regarded. Two years earlier from this date is September 12, 7 BC, a few days after the blowing of trumpets for the feast of tabernacles, and the new year. Perhaps the shepherds watching their sheep found Jesus in the manger on during the feast of booths September 12, 7 BC. Thus there was no room at the inn because everyone was supposed to be sleeping in booths during the feast of booths. Sheep are bred in the pasture to the end of August. There may have been a sudden sunrise on this night. Understanding comes by Jesus.

Exodus 40:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
40:2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail."

Nehemiah 8:2 "And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month."

Then perhaps the wise men came from the east possibly September of 5 BC. Then Arcturus would pass directly above Bethlehem at midnight. In September 2,000 years ago normally Arcturus is pointing straight down at midnight. However, with earth now in a reverse orbit, Arcturus would be rising in the east at sunset and pass directly overhead in September. Perhaps Herod slew the children Bethlehem two and under in 5 BC when it had already been two years since the sun miracle September 12, 7 BC. Perhaps there was a sun miracle when John the Baptist was conceived about July 7, 8 BC and a sun miracle 6 months later perhaps when Mary conceived Jesus of the Holy Ghost about January 1, 7 BC. Herod died March 30, 4 BC, almost two and a half years after September 12, 7 BC. The sun may move to the other side of earth and back six months later, Sunday, March 15, 7 BC and John the Baptist be born then on the passover. Then on the night of September 15, 5 BC the sun moved back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun at the same time as the midnight lunar eclipse visible from Israel. And the Arcturus would appear beside the sun, which had set, with the Big Dipper pointing straight down again like normal. This night, two years after Jesus was born, may be at the time of the lunar eclipse on which Herod killed the High Priest Matthias just a day after the day of Atonement. Thus the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC, was recorded because it lasted so long and the events associated with it. If this was the date of Jesus' birth two years earlier September 12, 7 BC, what happened to the High Priest two years later may be reason the day was not regarded. Herod may have been mad at that time because the wise men had gone back another way. Thus he slew the high priest and the children of Bethlehem at the same time.

Job 38:12 "Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13 That it might take hold of the wings of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of the seven stars, or loose the bands of Orion?
32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?"

The seven stars may be the Big Dipper, with Arcturus at the end of the handle.

Crack-making on day 32: on this day we should perform the you-ritual to dou the Big Dipper and to fa Orion. Use this. Heji 32253.

This record of a sun miracle in the oracle bones of China about 1300 BC would show a very similar night sky to what the shepherds would see September 12, 7 BC. This sky would be the night sky after the sun miracle on Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC. The sun may move back and forth six months after September 12, 7 BC, again September 14, 6 BC. and six months after September 14, 6 BC and move back September 15, 5 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Arcturus points to the seasons in its night time appearing. The handle of the Big Dipper points down at midnight to Arcturus and Virgo where the sun was before September 12, 7 BC. Then the sun moved 180° and Arcturus passed overhead at midnight September 12, 7 BC. Arcturus would pass directly over Bethlehem at midnight in this reverse orbit in August/September in the two years up to September 15, 5 BC when the sun moved back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the wise men in August/September of 5 BC may have followed Arcturus to Jerusalem and to Bethelehem and to Jesus. Thus to be in Jerusalem before the sun moved back September 15, 5 BC. Perhaps the sweet influences are the sweet influences of fruit in spring when the sun normally is moving into Orion. Perhaps the sweet influences are the sweet influences of the life of Christ. A flower when crushed gives a sweet fragrance. Moreover, the night sky at sunset would see Orion above normally in April. However, earth was in a reverse orbit the night of Gethsemane. Thus the night sky when Jesus prayed in the garden would be the Pleiades and Orion. Thus the bands of death were loosed when Jesus rose from the dead. Thus the sweet influences of eternal life in Jesus' prayer.

Mark 14:36 "And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt."

Jeremiah 6:17 "Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken."

The sign stating "The Place of the Trumpeter" just outside the Temple, at the corner of the temple steps:

Luke 2:8 "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child."

The civil new year began with the day of Atonement in August/September. Historically this marked the conquest of Joshua in the same seventh month.

The Roman five year census is reported to have been from 8 BC to 7 BC according to Susan S. Carroll.
If Elizabeth conceived just after her husband performed the temple services at the end of the seventh month July 5, 8 BC, then her sixth month may have been the new moon January 1, 7 BC. Then Mary may have conceived Jesus of the Holy Ghost in the sixth month, about January 3, 7 BC = 252 days the normal 36 week pregnancy, to September 12, 7 BC. Then Jesus would be born 9 months later in September. Then Zechariah could have performed the duties of the High Priest by the last day of the feast of tabernacles, five days before July 5, 8 BC, June 19, 8 BC being when the angel Gabriel spoke to him on the day of Atonement. Then the sixth month, Adar, would start December 30, 7 BC nine months to September 12, 7 BC with a second month of Adar the lunar month beginning February 1, 7 BC..Then John the Baptist could have been born on the Passover, Sunday, March 15, 7 BC.

Matthew 21:42 "Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."

Better to be ground as fine flour for the LORD now than to be ground to powder when he returns. The corner stone may have stood infront of the temple upon which the people brought the fruits of the land at Shavout, Pentecost, for the priests. My forefathers became Jewish priests about the time of Christ. So I can be very thankful for God's mercy. This research has not been presented to scholars. I do not know how it will be taken. I am serious, although I do not claim to be somebody. Abraham interceded for Lot before God when he was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah:

Genesis 18:27 "And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:"

Job 42:5 "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
42:6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes."

Matthew 21:23 "And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?
24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him."

The door is closed to those that do not accept Jesus' authority.

Mark 11:9 "And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest."

Probably Jesus' birth was in 7 BC: In 7 BC Joseph may have had to appear in his hometown of Bethlehem to pay taxes at the census that year according to Susan S. Carroll. Jesus may have been born Sunday, September 13, 7 BC, then Jesus was circumcised on the eighth day, Sunday, September 20, 7 BC. Then the sun may have moved to the otherside of the earth for a sudden sunrise on his birth to give the shepherds light to find Jesus in the manger. Then likewise, John would be born about Sunday, March 15, 7 BC and circumcised on the eighth day Sunday, March 22, 7 BC. Then John the Baptist may have been conceived about July 7, 7 BC at the end of the lunar month of the seventh, after the day of Atonement and the feast of tabernacles when Zechariah would have finished all his temple service. Then Jesus would have been conceived about the third day of Adar, Sunday, January 4, 7 BC. 252 days later is Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. So a sun miracle perhaps at the time Elizabeth conceived, July 7, 8 BC. Then 180 days later a sun miracle about January 4, 7 BC when Jesus may have been conceived. Then a sun miracle about July 7, 7 BC and earth would flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The the sun could move to the otherside of the earth Sunday, September 13, 7 BC perhaps when Jesus was born and the star Arcturus appear directly overhead. Then two years later, earth still in a reverse orbit, the wise men would see Arcturus directly overhead at midnight in September when they sought the King of the Jews. Arcturus would pass directly overhead of Bethlehem September 5 BC. Then the sun must return September 15, 5 BC and the moon be turned to blood the night of the lunar eclipse. The moon does not appear noticeably red during a naturally occurring lunar eclipse. Thus the sun would appear purple, to leave the same daily coral layer, and the reflection on the moon, ruby / blood red. Thus Herod killed all the boys two years old and under because Arcturus first appeared to the wise men, as they related to Herod, directly above September 13, 7 BC two years previous that September 5 BC.

Psalm 81:1 "Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day."

The solemn feast day is the beginning of the feast of tabernacles, on the full moon of the seventh month. Thus two years later on the full moon of the seventh month the high priest had been executed by Herod. Thus perhaps this was the reason Jesus' birth was not celebrated being on the same day of the year. Thus Jesus was born in a stable, just as at that time the people would be keeping the feast of booths. Sunday September 13, 7 BC was the third day of the feast of booths, of tabernacles.

Chinese Dates, predicting and recording the birth of Jesus

Sun miracles in 1207 BC and 1205 BC parallel sun miracles at Jesus' birth in 7 BC and the blood moon of 5 BC.

A lunar eclipse happens on day 15 of the Chinese lunar month. This lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC was on day 15 of the lunar month, but also, September 23, 1205 BC was day 13 of cycle 60. Meaning king Wan's first year as king began with the sun miracle in king Wan's dream 35 years previous on February 15, 1240 BC on the six day moon, first month of spring. Chinese emperors needed a sun miracle to claim their divine right to be king, to a new dynasty:

"35th year of king Wen of Zhou, 1st month, day bingzi 13, during worship of the full moon the king announced, 'The many...eclipses are untimely, you should begin planning for the succession.'"
Yi Zhou shu. Xiao kai jie. ch.17

This must be the lunar eclipse visible just after sunset in China September 23, 1205 BC on day 13 of cycle 60. Thus king Wan's first year 35 years earlier at the sun miracle, phoenixes, of king Wan's dream.

"In his (Emperor Te-sin) 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

However, the Keatze day, day one of cycle sixty, could have been a sun miracle to point to Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC. Thus a sun miracle on the 17th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month, be on September 21, 1207 BC, day 1 of cycle 60. The Chinese started their autumn in August and their calendar was lunar. Thus September could have been their last month of autumn. Then just like the sun miracle at the same time as the lunar eclipse in September 15, 5 BC when the sun moved back two years after Jesus' birth. Thus the difference of 2 days from September 21, 1207 BC to September 23, 1205 BC; from Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC, to the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Also, the September 21 date in 1207 BC would equal a September 13 date in 7 BC because the autumn equinox in 1207 BC was October 1 and the autumn equinox in 7 BC was September 22.

The lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC is from NASA's Five Millennium Canon of Lunar Eclipses.
From January 7 day 5 1500 BC. So day 60 was January 2, 1500 BC. So subtract 1500-1205, multiply by 365.25, delete the remainder after the dot, divide by 60, multiply after the . dot the remainder X 60, add to January 2 and continue to September 23, subtract all the 60's, and you get day 13 of 60.
1500-1205=295, X365.25=107748.75; 107748/60=1795.8; .8X60=48; From January 2; 48+29+28+31+30+31+30+31+31+23=312; 5X60=300, 312-300=12. The following day was day 13! The day was counted from sunset, so this lunar eclipse occurred on day 13.

"In his, emperor Te-sin's, 23rd year, he imprisoned the chief of the west in Yew-le."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.110

Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. His 23rd year = 1205 BC. "In his 3d year a sparrow produced a hawk." - at the end of the fourteenth year of Joshua, the seventh year of release when the law was to be read. Perhaps there was a sun miracle on this seventh year and the hawk was really the phoenix. Josephus wrote that Joshua lived to the 20th year since the conquest. So, Joshua may have made the declaration of Joshua 24 according to Deuteronomy 31:10 in the seventh month of the fourteenth year. This may have been very similar to Jesus speaking from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4, August, 18, 30 AD.

Sun miracles must be associated with Jesus' birth and the appearing of Arcturus above at midnight Sunday September 12, 7 BC.

"Emperor Cheng of Han, 1st year of the Yuanyan period, 7th month, day xinwei [8] (June 15, 12 BC or July 21, 5 BC). There was a fuzzy star in DONGING [LM] which then trod through WUZHUHOU. It [re-] appeared to the north of HESHU and skirted XUANYUAN and TAI WEI. Afterward it traveled more than 6 du daily, appearing at dawn in the east. On the evening of the 13th day from July 21, (August 3, 5 BC on the new moon - thus the comet was visible at sunset) it appeared in the west. It trespassed against CIFEI, CHANGQUI, DOU (DUO is The Big Dipper and Arcturus), Saturn (perhaps 180° from where it normally would be in Taurus) may have been in Libra beside Arcturus in the east at sunset with the sun in Pisces in August 31, 5 BC.

Then Arcturus would rise in the east at sunset. Thus the comet may rose in the west at sunset to meet Arcturus at midnight and when they had passed to stand directly above Bethlehem, the comet travelled with earth's rotation to stand still directly above Bethlehem till the wisemen had found the house of Joseph and Mary with Jesus.). Its pointed its rays again penetrated to the middle of ZIGONG, with DAHUO right behind. It reached TIANHE (The MILKY WAY), sweeping across the area of FEI and HUO. It departed southward, crossing and trespassing against DAJIAO and SHETI. When it reached TIANSHI it proceeded slowly at a measured pace. Its rays entered TIANSHI. After a further 10 days it departed westward. On the 56th day (September 15, 5 BC when the sun must return at the lunar eclipse = blood red moon reflecting a red sun as it moved with earth's rotation the night Herod executed the High Priests) it passed from view together with CANGLONG." East Asian Archaeoastronomy, [Han shu. Wuxing zhi] ch. 27

Here you see the English names to the constellations comet Halley passed through: "In the first year of Yuan Yen, in the Autumn the seventh month, on the day Sing Wei (day 8 of cycle 60), the comet swept in Gemini, went through Pollox and Castor and passed over Leo and Virgo. It was then behind the sun six degrees and appeared in the east earlier in the morning. After 13 days on the new moon the comet became an evening star shining in the west, whence it swept over Arcturus, moved slowly to Serpens and reached Ophiuchus. After 56 days it disappeared in Scorpio."

The path of the comet can also work with the sun on the other side of earth and earth in a reverse orbit. The comet may have been in the west in Gemni about August 3 BC. Even though earth was in a reverse orbit, the sun would appear in the constellation Gemni in June 5 BC. The zodiac was progressing in reverse. In March 5 BC the sun was in Virgo March, Leo April, Cancer May, Gemni June. The sun should have appeared to move from Gemni in earth's reverse orbit August 3 towards Pisces. When the wise men saw Arturus rise in the east in August the comet may have rose in the west. Thus the comet may have reached Arcturus and stood still above Bethlehem, the house of Joseph and Mary at midnight. Thus the record the star stood above the home of Joseph and Mary. Thus the record the comet swept over Arcturus to Scorpio. The sun would then be in Pisces, the comet directly overhead in Scorpio at sunrise in September 5 BC. Then on day 56 from the comet's first appearing September 15, 5 BC the sun may have moved back to Virgo at the same time as the lunar eclipse was to occur. Thus the comet in the way of the sun would have been removed on day 56, September 15, 5 BC. Then the sun would move 180° back to Virgo from Pisces September 15, 5 BC and the comet disappear.

This comet record may be the star of the wise men. They may have seen Arcturus rise in the east in September of 5 BC. Then as they reached Bethlehem, the wise men may have seen the comet move from the west to the east and passover Arcturus at midnight. Then Arcturus pass westward with the stars and the comet stand still over the house of Joseph and Mary. Whereupon the wise men entered the house and worshiped Jesus. Day 13 from July 21, 5 BC should be a new moon August 3, 5 BC so that the comet was not washed out by moon light. The sun may have been in Gemini in June 5 BC moving in reverse in the zodiac. Thus the comet was visible in Gemini in the morning in the east. Then the night the comet passed Arcturus perhaps to stand still above Bethlehem may have been the night the wise men entered Bethlehem and the house of Joseph and Mary. Arcturus would pass directly over head at Bethlehem at midnight. The comet may pass from west to east to Arcturus and stand still overhead as Arcturus passed west. The word for the star the wise men saw in the east is plural. Thus perhaps at the conjunction of the comet and Arcturus overhead the wise men entered the house of Joseph and Mary and found the Lord Jesus. Thus the comet could stand still over the house of Joseph and Mary. Then Halley's comet may have been recorded in 12 BC. But the recorded movements of the comet be a comet or object God used to guide the wise men in 5 BC. The movements would be similar, only the recorded movements may have been from 5 BC and not 12 BC.

Then the pattern of sun miracles 1200 years before Jesus' birth parallel the sun miracles at Jesus' birth.
