When was Yeshua Born?
Date of birth of Yeshua according to the Bible:
‘There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.’
In 1 Chronicles 24 we read about the schedule of the priest watches on their work in the Temple. There were 24 priests, divided by lot, 15 days for each priest to minister in the Temple. The 8th division fell to Abijah, every year, according to the Jewish calendar.
‘the seventh, Hakkoz; the eighth, to Abijah; ‘1Crônicas 24:10
‘So it was, as soon as the days of his service were completed, that he departed to his own house. Now after those days his wife Elizabethconceived; and she hid herself five months, saying, “Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take away my reproach among people.” Now in the sixth month (of Elizabeth’s pregnancy) the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”’
