Jesus Christ; is He the son of God, just a lunatic or a simple myth similar to other pagan gods? In our research we have found that several individuals feel that Jesus is a religious myth like so many other gods, with the following similarities: Born on December 25th, born of a virgin, a star in the East foreshadowed his birth, adorned by wise men, teacher of men at a young age, baptized and begun his ministry by age 30, had 12 disciples, performed miracles, called the “Lamb of God” etc., was crucified, dead for three days and resurrected. In the history books many other gods have followed this same succession of life such as: Dionysus – Greece – 500 BC Krishna – India – 900 BC Attis – Greece – 1200 BC Mithra – Persia – 1200 BC Horus – Egypt – 3000 BC This is just to name a few.
The first point that I would like to bring across in this teaching is that Jesus Christ was in fact not born in December like all of these other gods are believed to have been. Does this fact set him apart from the others? Yes. I’m sure you’re asking yourself how we can determine this fact when many world scholars have been unable. Well for one, our minds have not been tainted by supposed facts, and we will not stand by and go with the “norm” just because that is what has been accepted through out time. We have conducted research using the documentary evidence left to us – The Bible.
One event that is continuously mentioned through out the Bible is Passover. Every time the Bible mentions the age of Jesus Christ, Passover is also mentioned. We can use this to pin point when he was born as well as when he died. First, allow us to explain what Passover is and where it began and when it should be observed. Passover was first mentioned in the Old Testament.
Exd 12: 1- 14“ Now let us examine verses 5 and 6, the lamb for the sacrifice had to be one year old, this was a prophecy on how Jesus as the Lamb of God will be born on Passover and died on Passover. Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you [are]. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy [you] when I strike the land of Egypt.”Exd 12: 14“ So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.”Eze 45: 21 “In the first [month] (also know as Nissan), on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall observe the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.”
With this being said we can now show you that by using Passover we can create a timeline that shows when Jesus Christ was born, died and resurrected. From the book of Daniel we read: Dan 9: 24 “Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy. Dan 9: 25″Know therefore and understand, [That] from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, [There shall be] seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. Dan 9: 26″And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it [shall be] with a flood and till the end of the war desolations are determined. Dan 9: 27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the Consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.”
The seventy weeks explained. 7 weeks + 62 weeks = 69 weeks. 69 weeks of years periods would pass from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem until the coming of the Messiah. The Messiah would be “cut off” and the city and temple would be destroyed again. A 70th week period would follow, which is the last seven years. Dan 9: 24-25 says that from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to the coming of the Messiah there will be 483 years. 7 + 62 “weeks” = 69 groups of seven years. 7 x 69 = 483 years A prophetic year or lunar year = 360 days. This is based both on ancient history and on Rev 11: 2, 13: 5, 11: 3, and 12: 6 which indicate that 42 months 3 ½ years are equal to 1,260 days.
Persian Emperor Artaxerxes Longimanus (who ruled Persia from 464-424 BC) issued the edict to rebuild Jerusalem on the 1st of Nissan in the 20th year of his reign (that is, March 5th, 444 BC; see (Neh 2: 18) 173,880 days from March 5th 444 BC ends at March 30th 33 AD. Here’s the math: Therefore, 483 years x 360 days = 173,880 days March 30th, 33 AD was exactly 5 days before Passover on April 3rd, 33 AD. According to John’s Gospel, the Triumphant Entry took place 5 days before Passover:“Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. Jh 12: 1… Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus. The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD! The King of Israel. According to the Gospel accounts, Christ was crucified the day before Passover, was“three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”(Mat 12: 38-40), and was resurrected before sunrise on a Sunday (Mar 16: 1-2).
In order for Christ to have been crucified the day before Passover and resurrected on a Sunday three days and three nights later, Passover would have had to fall on a Thursday, whereby Christ was crucified on a Thursday (Lk 24: 21). We can narrow down the year of Christ’s crucifixion to one possibility:
33 AD. march 28, 1 AD Passover: Nisan 14, 3761 (Monday) ——– 1st Month (Nisan) The birth of Jesus, Lk, 2: 6-14. April 15,
2 Passover: Nisan 14, 3762 (Saturday) Jesus was one year old. April 4,
3 Passover: Nisan 14, 3763 (Wednesday) King Herod attempt to kill Jesus, Mt ,2: 1-21. April 14,
13 Passover: Nisan 14, 3773 (Friday) Luke 2: 41-42 – Jesus was 12 years old March 26,
31 Passover: Nisan 14, 3791(Monday) Luke 3: 23 – Jesus was about 30 years old when he started his ministry. Jh 2: 13-16. For Passover He was exactly 30 years old this is the moment He was waiting for to show God’s glory. April 14,
32 Passover: Nisan 14, 3792 (Monday) – He was 31 years old, he feed the multitude Jh,6: 4-12. April 3,
33 Passover: Nisan 14, 3793 (Friday) Jh, 19: 31-37- For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us (He was 32 years old). He had a two years ministry .1 Cr,5: 7.
The bible stated at age twelve Jesus was taken to Jerusalem to take part in the Feast of Passover as was a yearly custom Luke 2: 41-42.
Also, at about the age of thirty the Bible mentioned that Jesus began his ministry Luke 3: 23. Some would ask,“Why did He wait so long to start his ministry?”I myself have asked why but it is evident that He [Jesus] was definitely waiting for something to happen before He started his great works.
In John 2: 4 “Jesus said to her, “Woman [Mary], what does your concern have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.”What time could he possibly be referring to? Several entries in the Bible show that it was a tradition to begin service for God at the age of thirty. Num. 4: 23 From thirty years old and above, even to fifty years old, you shall number them, all who enter to perform the service, to do the work in the tabernacle of meeting (Also read: Num. 4: 30, Num. 4:35, Num. 4: 47) 2 Sam. 5: 4 David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.
When Jesus began his ministry at about age thirty is it just a coincidence that it is during Passover? John 2: 13-15“Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. This was moment, He was waiting to be exactly 30 years old on Passover.
Below is what took place on his second Passover during his ministry. Jh 6: 4-12, He feed the multitude on Passover and on the feast of Tabernacle he told his brothers his time has not yet come. Jh 7: 5 for even His brothers did not believe in Him. Jh 7: 6 then Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. Jh 7 : 7 the world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify of it that its works are evil. Jh 7: 8 you go up to this feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come.” That being said, he was waiting for a specific time to fulfill Daniel prophecy.
Third Passover!!! Jh 13: 1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. Mat 26: 18 And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says,”My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.” ‘ ”
From Daniel prophecy we all can agree that Messiah was cut off in year 33 AD on Passover. We know that He spent three Passovers during the course of his two years ministry according to John’s gospel. He really died at the age of thirty two.

Pro 3: 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Rom 3: 3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief makes the faithfulness of God without effect? Rom 3: 4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar, as it is written:”that you may be justified in your words, and may overcome when you are judged.”
Our LORD Jesus was not born on December 25th as we have been told, now we know for sure He was born on Passover, the feast of deliverance, and because of that faith, the Devil will pass right over us and fall strait in to Hell were he belongs. Mt, 25: 41. Should we celebrate Christmas? “Most certainly not“our bible tell us that we should remember the LORD death till He comes. 1 Cor. 11: 23-32. Remember knowledge is power. To Jesus our Almighty God belong all the Glory Amen.
