The Date for Christmas

 

Concerning the uncertainty as to the precise date of our Lord’s birth, in modern times, it is surprising to find the most precise data given for its determination in the year 170 AD. In the commentary of Hippolytus on Daniel 4:23, we read: “The first Advent of our Lord in the flesh, when he was born in Bethlehem, happened on the eighth day before the calends of January, on a Wednesday, in the forty-second year of Augustus, in the year 5500, reckoning from Adam. He suffered in His thirty-third year, on the eighth day before the calends of April (25th March), on a Friday, in the eighteenth year of Tiberius, when Rufus and Rubellius were consuls.
