It now is December 12, 2014. Later this month, many other Christians and I will be celebrating the birthday of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. But was the Lord born on December 25? And if so, in what year? The Bible does not answer those questions specifically, but it does tell us many other facts related to the Lord’s birth and infancy, and even some facts about what happened when he was yet very young. If you want to read the infallible accounts of these events, read the first and second chapters of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. These chapters are very interesting, informative, and inspiring. Then, if you want to read the rest of the facts about the Lord’s earthly life, read all four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, from start to finish. My preferred Bible translations are the King James Version, which is in old English, and the New King James Version, which is in modern English.
Now, back to the questions concerning the month, day, and year of the Lord’s birth. For good and concise answers to these questions, click on the following link. You will find the information helpful. Here is the link: http://www.gotquestions.org/questweek.html.
If you are not a Christian and want to learn how to become one, click on the following link. It will tell you what you need know to become a Christian at once. You can become a Christian in the privacy of your own home, at work, in a jail cell, or elsewhere. No one else needs to be there. It is between you and the Lord.
