THE BIRTH OF CHRIST – September 11th 3 B.C.?
“If Revelation 12:1-3 is to be interpreted in an astronomical way, then there was only one day in 3 B.C. where the “sun clothed the woman” with the “moon under her feet.” This was from about 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on September 11, 3 B.C. It was significantly the Day of Trumpets, the beginning of the Jewish New Year, the first day of Tishri, Rosh Hashanah, the New Year day for civil affairs. It was a celebration of physical creation, the year Noah turned 601, (Gen. 8:13), the day Noah removed the covering of the Ark, (Gen. 8:13), the day kings began to rule. It would symbolize the enthronement of the great King of kings.”
