Scientist theorizes about Jesus Christ's birth date
Historians have long known that there was a gap of up to 4 years on the birth of Jesus. The best guess has always placed it between 1 and 4a. C. Australian astronomer and Sky and Space magazine editor Dave Reneke believes he has solved the Star of Bethlehem mystery. He calculated that Venus, also known as the evening star, shared the same part of the night sky with Jupiter on June 17, 2 BC. C. This meant that people watching the Evening Star saw a "star" slowly moving across the night sky and shining brighter than anything we normally see. These facts coincide with the version of events in the Bible.
Scientifically, the case appears to be the best available to explain the biblical story of Jesus' birth. Astrologically, a case can clearly be presented that corresponds to the person we know as Jesus. Interestingly, according to Chinese astrology, this means that Jesus was born in the year of the sheep and the traits associated with the sheep are the most consistent with the character of Jesus of all the signs in Chinese astrology.
