The 'Star-of-Bethlehem' explained

When the second so-called Millennium of the calendared Christian era didn't end the world in the year 2,000 as many expected, the world partied-on as if it didn't matter.

And when consternation over the fabled Mayan Calendar ended 2012 with the world still intact, a relieved mankind happily continued onward as if having beaten the system.

And even though the Vatican admits that the Son-of-God was born years before their previous estimation, and while thinking man has known all along that the Dec.25th Sun-god festival is not the true Deliverer's actual birth date, the world overly esteems the sham celebration as if it were so, almost unto madness.

However, leading the way to defining the deliverers actual birth date is astronomer Michael R. Molnar, who discovered the deliverer's arrival on earth as having been some six-and-a-half years before the Roman church originally declared it, on April 17th, 6 BC.

Corroborating Molnar's research are scholars affirming that the prophesied birth event coincides the known April census of Quirinius, conqueror of the Palestinian lands where Bethlehem is still located.

Censuses are always traditionally taken at the first of the year, and back then, the month of April started each year. Plus Herod Antipas died soon after issuing his pogrom of male toddlers -- kids born within two-years of the Star-of-Bethlehem's fateful appearance, and not later on as first believed.

The best confirmation of the birth date, though, is explained by appearance of 'The Star-of-Bethlehem' itself, which was actually Jupiter's second occultation by the moon in the constellation of Aries, in the middle of April.

Of such importance was the event, that astronomers watching the sky—including the "three wise men" of Babylon—saw and were excited by what had happened, and sought out the new Hebrew king that the astronomical sign portended. 

Mind you, convincing your boss to let you travel from the seat of Parthian mysticism was quite a lengthily expensive undertaking, for securing a state-sponsored convoy of camels and servants along with the gifts they carried, was a  huge undertaking. So their appearance at Herod's court almost two years later, shook Rome to the point that the local government even minted a coin, in Antioch, to immortalize the stellar event. 

Few remember that April had been the first month of the New Year before the Catholic calendar was reapportioned in 1582. That fact caused April 1st to be lauded forever-after as 'April Fool's Day,' to ridicule anyone still expecting it to be the first day of the new year. It's amazing that that custom still lingers, while the Hebrew deliverer's birth was confounded and confused.

The astrological sign of Aries the Ram was always of great concern to the Hebraic people, as it was a symbol of their perceived importance amongst all creation. And it being that Jupiter was considered 'the regal star of kings' meant much to all of that day.

When Jupiter was eclipsed by the same moon that ruled everyones perceived fate, not once but twice in the constellation of Aries, secondly on April 17th, that event was especially meaningful. And as Hebrews always relied on precedence—a first and a second occurrence—the recurring eclipse clinched it as truly important.

So finding it due to the fact that this coin exists at all, coupled with the other predictions of the age, we are able to authenticate Molnar's discovery.
