Christmas and Easter
Birthday of a King
Can we determine from the Bible, when Jesus was born?
When I find that another student of the Word has done a great study on a topic, I prefer to link my website to that study. Here is the link to a great study on the birthday of Yeshua Messiah at Sakkot - NOT at the winter solstice! : http://biblelight.net/sukkoth.htm
Just a note: The Law of Israel commanded that a woman be separated during and for days or weeks (depending on the sex of the infant) after giving birth. She was ritually “unclean” because she would have an “issue of blood”. Anyone she touched would also become ritually “unclean”. The Law concerning ritual impurity after childbirth is found in Leviticus Chapter 12. It was common for the poorer classes to separate new mothers in the stable, with lots of clean straw. Yes. There was “no room for them in the inn”. There was no room of separation for women. Besides which, Bethlehem was the ancestral home of Joseph. He had lots of relatives there. They would provide for their relations. This was about Mary’s impending ritual impurity.
The rebirth of the sun after the winter solstice was celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere long before it came to be celebrated as the birthday of Christ the Savior. It is a pagan holiday. Here is a link to a great video teaching on the origins of Christmas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am0uv5k-YxM
Here’s another very good study on the history of Christmas:
Easter - Goddess of Fertility
The following are links to website articles which I have found informative concerning the pagan origins of Easter, and of Christmas. I do NOT necessarily agree with everything taught.
