Hidden Biblical Calendar Reveals The Concise Date Of The Star Of Bethlehem
The first Christmas day was on February 26 in the year 6 BC for new evidence suggests it was the date when Jesus was born. The key to unlocking the mystery of Christ’s birth lies within the phenomenon, known as the Star of Bethlehem. There were several theories doing the rounds about the identity of the star, one of which was the coming close together of Jupiter and Saturn three times over several months in what is known as a triple conjunction of those two planets.

The biblical prophets had predicted a Messiah would come, but nobody knew that they had also developed a set of calendar time charts to map out the details of his birth. The dates include his conception at the time of a triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, to his birth on the date of a fiery triangle of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. To safeguard these time charts, the biblical scribes repackaged the numerical indices and disguised the data as two enormous censuses, which they covertly inserted in the Old Testament. Just recently those calendar charts were unveiled from where they lay hidden behind the computations of those two censuses. At last the greatest story never told can be revealed.

The Magi And Weeping Rachel
The puzzling events at the birth of Jesus arouse the same speculative questions every year. Who were the Magi, what was the bright Star over Bethlehem and why was there a reference to a census, which historians cannot identify? It may therefore appear incredible that the answers to these mysteries are flaunted before one’s eyes in the Bible, but somehow they went undetected.
When the Magi departed by a different route to avoid Herod, the king became irate and ordered the massacre of all infant boys in order to eliminate the new-born king. This caused the gospel writers to invoke a prophecy from Jeremiah where the prophet had written: “Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not .” ( Matthew Ch. 2, Jeremiah Ch. 31) Traditional sources had interpreted Rachel’s weeping as her spirit crying for the baby victims of Herod’s massacre.
