This is a copy of a comment on question of when Jesus was born (what time of the year, and also what year). It is not exhaustive but does offer a fairly comprehensive view.
There are a number of ways of figuring out what time of year Jesus was born in.
It can’t have been december because too cold for sheep outside then.The dates of the possible matches for the Star of Bethlehem (see list below).Jewish Mazzaroth/Zodiac: Virgo bearing wheat in her hand/hands? “Star Ascendant”? Age of Pisces (100/90/1/498-1447/2000/2062/2150/2595/2600/2654/2680/2700/3621)?The Jewish calendar of feasts/festivals/holidays and months names and starts of civil & sacred year. Some think Jesus was born on feast of tabernacles or trumps or first fruits.John was conceived 6 months before, but I am not aware of any sources saying when John’s father was serving in the temple. This might match a similar period between Jewish calendar feasts?The time of Roman census or “indiction”. The date of the Indiction was Sept 1 (Greek) or 25 (Caesarean) or Jan 1 (Gregorian). The mass oath was in Aug 3 bc.Possibly might match the vernal equinox or autumn equinox or summer solstice?“The De Pascha Computus, an anonymous document believed to have been written in North Africa around 243 ad, placed Jesus birth on March 28th.” “Clement, a bishop of Alexandria (died ca 215 ad), thought Jesus was born on November 18th.”
“Based on historical records, Fitzmyer guesses that Jesus birth occurred on September 11th”.
As to the actual year I find it difficult to narrow down Jesus life to less than the 60 years between the 19 bc and 39 ad. One major difficulty is ancient and medieval sources already using an BC/AD system and we can’t be sure whether the start dates are right or wrong in different sources.
Daniel prophesied 69 weeks of 7 years, or 483 years from decree to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple to the Messiah. This may possibly linked with Halley’s comet (76 yrs)?Jesus was supposedly born in the year 753? of Rome (which was founded in 753 bc).Jesus born “in the 309th year of Alexander (the Great)” & Cyrinus sent year before?
“Archelaus succeeded … in the year 312 of Alexander”.
“in the year 341 of Alexander, 1 year before the crucifixion of our Lord the Christ ….”
“… in the year 342 of Alexander, Our Lord Christ was crucified ….”There are candidates for the Star of Bethlehem between 17 bc and 9 ad including:
17 bce comet?
12/11/9 bc Halley’s comet Aug 25th 56/63 days China (Dio Cassius RH 54:29)?
9 bc conjunction Uranus & Saturn?
7/6 bc/bce conjunction of (Mars &) Jupiter & Saturn (3 x in Pisces) 5 months in (20th/end Feb, 12th Apr), 20/21/29th May, sep / (2)3rd Oct, 4th Dec, (end Jan)? *

6 bc conjunction Uranus & Venus?
5 bc object/tailed-comet/nova (70 days, China/Korea)?

2 bc Venus rose to mark sceptre in Leo 18/20/24 Aug? *
2 bc Jupiter stationary 25 Dec.

9 ad comets (Dio Cassius).
11 ad ban on astrology,
14-37 Tiberius interested in astrology and nativities.
19 Jewish astrologers expelled from Rome.
23 ad Chinese astronomer.
36 ad Egyptian astronomer.
39 ad comet.Jesus was born near the end of Herod the Great’s reign 47/44/41/40/38/37-4/1 bc or 3 ad (ASC).
Jesus born “in the 32nd year of Herod” & Cyrinus sent year before.
Herod’s regnal years in Josephus and Oxford are 13 + = 14 + = 17 + = 36 yrs. (Temple built in 15th/17th/18th yr Herod ca 21/20/19/early 17 bc.)
“Then Herod died, having lived in his city 70 years, he reigned 34, in the year 44 of Caesar.”
There was an eclipse at/before Herod’s death: eclipse 9 bc? 6 bc double occultation of Jupiter by Moon close to sun in Aries 17 April? 4 bc lunar eclipse 13/15 Mar? eclipse 1 bc? Eclipse 10 ad? eclipse 26 ad? eclipse 29 ad?
(Eclipse cycle is 56 (19, 19, 18) or 65 (19, 19, 27) yrs.)Jesus was born in the reign of Augustus Caesar 44/43/42-31/30/28/27/19 bc – 14 ad. (Census Augustus & Tiberius 13/14 ad. Josephus has Augustus with 57 yrs (14 yrs with Antony) and died at 77 yrs old. Or “Augustus lived 75 years and died after having reigned for 56 years”.)
Cyrenius is the 37th yr of Augustus in Josephus.
“Jesus born 42nd Augustus 1 ad” (ASC, Exiguus) or “the 44th year of Augustus” & Cyrinus sent year before.
“Archelaus succeeded him in the year 45 of Augustus Caesar”.Jesus was born in the time of Cyrenius/Quirinus (or Kyrios “lord”?) whose dates are 14 bc (Cyrene), 12 bc (consul), 12/11-2/1 bc or 10-7 bc or 5-3 bc or 4-1 bc, 6/7-11/12 ad. Cyrenius is the 37th yr of Augustus in Josephus.
“prior to that year (32nd of Herod, 309th Alexander, 1st of Jesus, 44th of Augustus), the Romans had sent the judge Cyrinus to count the population subject to tax.”
Or it might be Quin(c)tilius whose dates are 13 bc consul, 7/6-4/3 bc Syria, Varus 6-3 bc?, 8 ad consul.There was a census when Jesus was born. The period of censuses in different sources is either 21/20 yrs, 14/15 yrs, 11 yrs, 7 yrs, or 5 yrs. There were censuses in 30 bc (Egypt), 28 bc (Suetonius, RGDA), 27 bc (Gaul), 12 bc (Gaul), census of Herod 12 bc? 12/11 bc (Dio Cassius)? 9 bc (Egypt), 9/8/7 bc (of Roman empire/citizens, Res Gestae Divi Augusti, Censorinus, Josephus 16:6:1-8, Tertullian, Ancyra, Suetonius), 7/6 bc (maybe, not recorded)? 7 bc (Cyrene), 3 bc (mass oath, Josephus 17:41-45, pater patriae 2 bc), 6/7 ad (Quirinus), 13/14 (RGDA, Suetonius), 20, 33/34.
It is also said that there was a census in time of Saturninus according to Tertullian. Saturninus’ dates are consul 19 bc, consul 11 bc, 9-7/6 bc (Tertullian), consul 4 bc, “3/2 bc”? 4-6 ad (Tertullian), 19-21 ad (Tertullian).
“prior to that year (32nd of Herod, 309th Alexander, 1st of Jesus, 44th of Augustus), the Romans had sent the judge Cyrinus to count the population subject to tax.”In Luke Simeon and Anna were at the temple when the baby/child Jesus was presented there. Anna’s age is given as 7 yrs married + 84 yrs widow, but this doesn’t seem much help unless there is more information on Anna’s dates.Herod Archelaus was ruling when Joseph & Mary & Jesus came back from Egypt. His dates are 4 bc or 3 ad – 6 ad (Matthew, ASC).
“Archelaus succeeded him in the year 45 of Augustus Caesar in the year 312 of Alexander; and Archelaus ruled for 9 years”.
Jesus “was then aged 4”.Jesus was 12 yrs old when they went up to Jerusalem at passover.Jesus was (between 12 and) “about 30” years old in the 15th regnal year of Tiberius whose dates are (13 bc, 7 bc,) heir 4, emperor 12/13/14/15/16-37/39 (census Augustus & Tiberius 13/14, 18, 21, 31). (“Tiberius Caesar reigned for 23 years and lived 78 years.” Quake in his 1st year. “In the year 7 of his reign, Herod built … Tiberias. In the year 14 the procurator Pilate was sent to the Jews.”)
So the 15th yr would be 27/28/29/30 ad?
“In the year 17 of Tiberius Caesar… 1 year before the crucifixion of our Lord the Christ ….” “In the year 19 of Tiberius Caesar… Our Lord Christ was crucified ….”
The saying of ‘Tammuz’ that “great Pan is dead” in the reign of Tiberias might possibly connected with the death of Jesus according to some sources.Luke said Lysanias was reigning when Jesus was baptised. Lysanias’ dates are 14-29/42 ad?Luke also says there were also reigning/ruling at the time of Jesus baptism Herod Antipas (Galilee) and Herod Philip (Ituraea & Trachonitis).
Antipas was presumably reigning in Galilee when Joseph and Mary came back from Egypt. Somethink that Joseph was employed in the building of Sepphoris.
John the Baptist was rebuked Antipas for taking his brother Philip’s wife, and John was imprisoned and executed by Antipas. Later Antipas heard of Jesus and thought he was John resurrected, or he knew John was dead and wondered who this person was and wanted to see him. The Pharisees told Jesus that Antipas wanted to kill him and Jesus called him a fox. The wife of Antipas’ steward was among the women followers of Jesus. Jesus said to his disciples beware of the leaven of the pharisees and of Herod (Antipas).
Jesus was sent to Antipas by Pilate during his arrest and trial.
Herod Antipas’ dates are 4 bc – 17-27/31/35-defeat 36-deposed 38/39 ad. (“Herod as successor who reigned 28 years”. “In the year 7 of his (Tiberius’) reign, Herod built … Tiberias.”)
Herod Philip’s dates are 4 bc or 12 ad – 34 (or 33-36) ad.Luke said Annas and Caiaphas were in office when Jesus was baptised. Jesus also was tried before them. Their dates are:
Annas 6-15 (son 16-17, son in law 18-36, son 36-41, 43, 44, 63).
Caiaphas 18-36. (“There were between Hannan and Caiphas less than 4 years, according to Eusebius”.)Jews said the temple had been built for 46 yrs (John 2). Temple built in 15th/17th/18th yr Herod ca 21/20/19/early 17 bc, or 18 yrs from Antigonus to temple (Josephus). Temple quarry date 19 bc. (15 bc Agrippa visits Jerusalem and offers hecatomb in temple.)Matthew 16 occurs at Caesarea Philipi. Caesarea Philipi’s dates include: built 25-13 bc, 3 bc – ad 14 – 29/30 – 34 ad.Pilate was in office at time of Jesus baptism (Luke). Jesus was crucified during the rule of Pontius Pilate whose dates are 26 – 36/37 (ASC).
“In the year 14 (of Tiberius) the procurator Pilate was sent to the Jews.”There was a quake and a darkness/eclipse at the crucifixion.
Eclipse 10 ad?
Quake in 1st year of Tiberius.
17 earthquake Anatolia.
eclipse 26 ad?
eclipse 29 ad?
“Jewish tradition (Talmud & Josephus) makes mention of a mysterious spontaneous opening of the heavy iron temple-doors 40 years before the destruction of Jerusalem (70 ad)”.
32 ad darkness/eclipse (Thallus/Africanus).
33 ad Fri 3rd Apr “eclipse/blood-moon”?
Crucifixion 33 ad (ASC).
37 ad earthquake Antioch.
… ad Ban on stealing dead bodies.Jesus was (between 12 and) “about 30” when he was baptised, and is often supposed to of had a 1-3 yrs ministry (half week in Daniel?) but bible also says “his generation” and says “you are not yet 50”, so he might have lived anwhere from 31 to 49 yrs?
But his birth date is not so important as his death and resurrection date.
These people who let off fireworks on New Years Eve/Day make 13 mistakes.
It is illegal to let off fireworks except on Guy Fawkes day (and it causes hell problems including scaring birds etc).A day doesn’t begin at midnight (modern Western) or sunset (Jewish) but at sunrise.The winter solstice is on December 21st not the Dec 25th or Jan 1st.Jesus was not born in December.St Nicholas’ day is also December 6th not 25th.The southern hemisphere is the opposite to northern hemisphere (it is mid summer in southern when midwinter in northern).In the bible a year doesn’t begin at January 1st (western), but begins roughly at the start of spring (sacred year) or start of autumn (civil year).There is nothing to celebrate for victims of this world regime/system/order.Jesus death and resurrection is greater than his birth.Some don’t allow for daylight saving.Time zones are not exact.We loose upt 1 day every 4 years until leap year.The Sun is not the creator/God.A day beginning at sunrise might be confirmed by a year beginning at start of spring?
