Years ago I heard a tv astronomer tell of a star that could only be seen around Christmas time. Some people called it the Christmas star. He told how to find it in the sky and it's name, however I didn't have anything to write with and I could't remember where he said to look or it's name. I have never been able to find him online or get any information on him from the tv station. Could someone help me find this star? When I google it I only find information about the biblical Christmas Star. This isn't what I am looking for. Thanks

Christmas Star

The actual time of that star is not December 25. But August the month of the Lion Leo. (Lion of Judah) Which was the morningstar Jupiter which appeared out of Venus. This could be the beginning of the belief. then follow the stars progress... i found a site that fits where I am coming from without having to retype it. :)

The Christ was an Aries the Ram/Lamb


Wrong. See my post #4 and http://MichaelMolnar.com

Is it a 'coincidence' that Jesus was born on 4/17 and Matthew 4:17 is the first time that the 'chosen one' preaches, "Repent, for the governance of GOD is at hand".

Jesus son of Joseph born April 17, 6 BC

TgeorgeZ has it correct. Astronomer Michael Molnar back in the '90s discovered that Jesus son of Joseph was born on April 17, 6 BC / 17.4.748 AUC. This has been announced on the BBC, Discovery Channel, History Channel, CNN, FOX, CBS, and perhaps others. Jesus was born under the sign of Aries the Ram: a male sheep, baby sheep are lambs and Y'shua has often been referred to as the "Lamb of GOD".

The Messiah was on the Cross on the first day of Passover Good Friday April 7, 30 AD / 7.4.783 AUC. IESVS was crucified under Aries the Ram.

Note these numerical 'coincidences'...

Good Friday=74=G7+O+O+D4+F6+R18+I9+D4+A1+Y25

This alphanumeric code is known as 'Simple(6,74) English(7,74) Gematria(8,74)' - google that.

How's the best way to remember that Jesus was born on 4/17/6 BC? July 4, 1776! Was that a 'coincidence'? No, it was a Masonic(7 letters, =74=M13+A1+S19+O15+N14+I9+C3) Code(4). Benjamin Franklin died on April 17, 1790. George Washington died on 12/14/1799. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on 7/4/1826.
