The Lord Jesus Christ was possibly born in
the Spring after the Feast of the Passover
There is compelling biblical evidence that the Lord Jesus Christ was born in the Spring after the Feast of the Passover. Let us consider what Luke wrote:
“His parents went to
The Feast of the Passover falls on the fourteenth day of the First Month – Nisan or Abib of the Hebrew-Jewish Calendar (Ex. 12:1-28). This time corresponds to the months of March or April in the International calendar which is Spring time.
When Joseph and Mary traveled from
Luke wrote that Joseph and Mary “went to
Luke also documented this fact: "So it was, while they were there (in Bethlehem), the days were completed for her to be delivered" (Lk. 2:6). This is highly significant that Joseph and Mary were in Bethlehem waiting for the baby Jesus to be born. They did not rush to Bethlehem for an emergency delivery or something like that. There is no record how long they had waited for the birth in Bethlehem, but it would still be in the Spring time when Jesus was born. Spring is the symbol of birth, therefore it is the most appropriate time for the Son of God to be born into this world.
“My beloved spoke and said to me: Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!" (Song 2:10-13)
Our One True God is the Creator of the whole universe and He has planned and chosen the best time with the most ideal weather condition for His Son to be born.
“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Gal. 4:4-5)
It must have been a very beautiful evening in the Spring time in
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!” (Luke 2:13-14)
