Matthew 2:1 The Birthday Of The Messiah, Part Three

It has been 27 weeks from the discourse of Abiyah, the conception of John, to Chanukah, the conception of Yeshua. That leaves 14 weeks to Johns birth, which was at Pasach, Passover, the 14th of Nisan, first month of the Hebrew religous year. That leaves six more months to Yeshua's birth which would have occured during the seventh month, the month of Tishri. If John was born on 14th of Nisan, then Yeshua would have been born the 15th of Tishri, which would have been the first day of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).

It's interesting to note that all of Israel are to build temporary dwellings called a sukkah and dwell in them [Leviticus 23:34-43]. These sukkahs were erected to house families with some bare comforts and food for the eight days. Food was placed in a stall or a crib for storage in this sukkah or tabernacle. Does that not sound like the nativity story found in the B'rit Hadashah. Yeshua was not born in a manger, but rather in a temporary tabernacle which had been built for the celebration. He was placed in a food stall or crib. This is most fitting, because this models what Yeshua is to all of us. He is the Bread of Life from heaven.

In conclusion, the date of Yeshuas birth was the 15th of Tishri, 6-7 BC, not the 25th of December. Why not celebrate the true birthdate of Y'shua this year on October 17, 2016? Please prayerfully consider this information and let the Holy Spirit guide you into the truth. There is a reason why G-d commands us to continually celebrate his feasts. This is because, just as the stars in the heavens revealed the glory of God, so does the feast revealed the salvation plan of G-d and points to the Messiah of all mankind, our Lord and Savior, Yeshua.

Matthew 2:1 The Birthday Of The Messiah, Part Two

During the sixth month of Elisheva' s, Elizabeth, pregnancy Gavri-El, Gabriel, came to Mariam, Mary. Gavri-El told Mariam that Elizabeth was six months pregnant. This was six months after the priestly course of Abia which puts us at the end of the month Kislev (November-December). This would have been the time of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, the rededication of the Temple.

Mariam is also told that she would be a vessel for the Messiah. This is confirmed when Mariam goes to Natseret, Nazareth, to the home of Elisheva and Zachar'yah a few days after Gavri-El announcement. I find it exciting that it's a three day trip to Elisheva. Can we say, "on the third day"?

Upon her arrival, John leaps for joy within Elisheva's, Elizabeth, womb. Elizabeth also, upon hearing Mariams voice, is filled with G-ds Holy Spirit. She says, "Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."

Therefore, on the third day, following Gabriels announcement to Mariam, Yeshua was in her womb. Yeshua was conceived at Chanukah, the Festival of Lights. It's only appropriate since He is the Light of the World, and he is responsible for the rededication of the present day temple of G-d, that is you and me.

You can read this account in Luke 1:26-55.
