on the Good Friday, April 3, 33AD and rose again at 4 a.m. To obtain the information the astronomers turned to the primary source, the Bible, and then started some astrology computer programs.
When this author began his work, he considered a wide variety of ancient works which claimed to record birth and death dates of many of the ancient prophets and patriarchs.
As sacred calendars were discovered, they provided a way to check on the validity of these sources.
On the other hand, nearly every date in the Book of Jasher resulted in an amazing interconnected web of holy days, where the patriarchs and their wives were nearly all born on sacred dates on both the (Perpetual) Hebrew Calendar and also the Native American Sacred Round.
A very important feature of these interwoven patterns was that there was almost always a parent-child link, meaning both parent and child were born or died on the same day on one sacred calendar. And usually the dates were not only holy days on those two calendars, but also on many other sacred calendars as well.
This is why during his life, Jesus was called sometimes Jesus of Nazareth and other times Jesus son of Joseph, which is supported by Christian sources (Luke 4.22; John 1.45; 6.42; Acts 10.38).
The word Christ is not a name but a title derived for the Greek word “The anointed one”.
Thus, this author has accepted the Book of Jasher as authentic, whereas most scholars reject it as a medieval invention.

Determining the year of Jesus’ birth this way is comparatively simple and straightforward because Luke has tied Jesus’ age to a well known event in history; viz., the accession of Tiberius. It is clear that the sacred calendar began with the first of Nisan upon the new moon at the vernal equinox (March/April). 12:2 et seq.) Also, it seems that the first of Tishri, the seventh month (Sept./Oct.), was the new year for purposes of the courses of priests (I Kng. However, the children of ) Hence, unless it can be positively demonstrated that Solomon did not accede the throne in Nisan, there is no basis for concluding this verse is an instance of counting official, calendar years as opposed to actual years.
The astronomers employed information about revolution of the planets within 26-35AD and found out that it was only two times within the period that the fool moon followed the vernal equinox immediately.
The first date was Friday, April 7, 30AD and the second time this combination repeated was April 3, 33AD.
The Nativity marks the time when the reign of sin and death began to be annulled and the way opened for man’s reconciliation to his Maker. Other events recorded in scripture relevant to this discussion are more problematic. 170-240) – Julius Africanus wrote a series of “chronographies,” most of which have been lost, but of which we possess extensive extracts and quotes, including Eusebius. Moreover, even if the first of Nisan marked the new year for purposes of enumerating the regnal year of a sitting king, this would not prove that non-accession reckoning was used, for the accession method also changes the regnal years new year’s day.
