When Was Jesus Born?

According to Jehova Witnesses website

Since there is no evidence that the birth of Jesus Christ occurred on December 25, why is Christmas celebrated on this date? The Encyclopædia Britannica says that church leaders probably chose it “to coincide with the pagan Roman festival marking the ‘birthday of the unconquered sun,’” at the time of the winter solstice. According to The Encyclopedia Americana, many scholars believe that this was done “in order to make Christianity more meaningful to pagan converts.


Also the Bible says the Shepards were in their fields with their flocks and the census would not have been called in the winter. So using other bible quotes they figure early Fall was when Jesus was born.

Truth is very important since Truth is the Creator. Hallowed be thy name said I am truth. When we get away from truth the devil can play and bring in other elements through subversion.


Also looking for what is untrue in this picture? Jesus was probably not blue haired and blond eyed. He would not have been able to hide in Egypt otherwise. We should be vigilant against racism since the Bible said love your brother and even love your enemy. So if anyone has racism in their heart how will that feel when you get to heaven and find a black face looking at you?
