Christmas Festival Story & Position Of Stars
The exact birth year of Jesus Christ is not known clearly as there has been no concrete recorded evidence to prove the same. However, astrologers around the world have concluded that Jesus would have been born anywhere between 5 and 7 BC by working backwards from the period of the Lord’s crucifixion. Some astrologers claim that Jesus was born in the year 7 BC, at 1:21 am in Bethlehem (present-day Israel).
Jesus And The Sun
There are different factors linking Jesus to the Sun. Jesus was identified with the Sun based on a verse of the Old Testament. According to an early sermon given by Saint Augustine, Jesus chose to be born on the shortest day of the year for symbolic reasons. He was born on the shortest day of the year from which the subsequent days begin to increase in length indicating the increase of light. Lord Jesus was called “the light of the world” by John. Also, there is the belief that creation began at the Spring Equinox (March 25), with the conception or birth of Jesus on March 28, which is, in Genesis, the day of creation of the sun. For this reason, Malachi the prophet described him as the sun of righteousness.
