Skip to comments.Why Sukkot Is Yeshua’s Real Birthday [Today!]
Posted on 09/22/2013 5:26:16 PM PDT by Errant
Sandie Zimmerman, wife of Jewish Voices Messianic Rabbi Jack Zimmerman, shares fascinating revelations about the true time period of Yeshuas (Jesus) birth in this YouTube video.
You will be surprised to learn it wasnt December 25! By looking at the biblical account and the timing of the Jewish festivals, you will be astounded at the fulfillment of both prophecy and the historical elements that clearly point to Yeshua being born at the time of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles or Feast of Booths), not in December on Christmas.

That’s because the new year didn’t begin in January back then, but in early spring. There have been various systems, and the calendar has been adjusted several times. Our current system, the Gregorian calendar, came into use in 1582.
I don't believe in Zeus either, But I believe in the real God. Just keep in mind, if you are right, and there is no God, well then we all end up as worm food. If Christians are right, then you might want to read the bible and talk to someone. It will give purpose and meaning to your life. Call it fire insurance. :)
You will definitely not be an atheist when you stand before the throne of Yeshua.
I don't believe in Zeus either.
But considering what you say here, you expend the energy to reply on a thread that you think has no bearing for your life. Interesting choice of time management on your part.
Oh, and you DO have this posted on your profile page. So what's really going on in your life?
No doubt Mary and Joseph should have made reservations via the internet.
Love the image....speaks volumes to those who can hear. HE who has this on his page is closer to the the thruth then those who claim so but have lost their way.
>> “Actually, depending on when Zacharius, John the Baptists father served in the Temple, gives a possible date of...NOW OR, around Dec. 25th.” <<
Using the courses of service would deliver dates roughly 6 months apart, so December 25 is completely impossible.
Since Zeremiah served in the course of Abia, as stated in the scriptures, Sukkot is shown to be the date. But that should be no surprise, since the purpose of Sukkot was to prophecy the coming of the Messiach.
SkyDancer’s posting history would appear to be that of a believer.
I think that she pulleth our leg.
SkyDancer, the reality, once you start examining it, leaves little doubt that a higher power exists - I promise you will be blown away by the enormity of it all. PM me if you need a few suggestions of where to start looking. ;)
....and you sure have some swell pictures there....must be awesome flying like that..in Australia no less! I am truly jealous!
Exactly - a shadow picture, just as was Passover for the sacrifice. It's why the Almighty instructed us to always observe these dates!
They are also shadows of events to yet to come.
The problem with that date is that April would be when an agricultural society, like most of Roman subjects would have been, starts planting their crops. After a long winter, their wealth would be at a low point and there would be very little to collect, which was the reason why Mary and Joseph were going to Bethlehem.
I got the impression from looking at SkyDancer's page, that she is a she...
The image on her page tends to contradict the reply above..
Well do correct my utter failure to call her a her or she.....I suspect the point was lost amid all the trouble of doing so.
Christ fulfilled all “the shadows” of things to come. I don’t think he at all minds when we celebrate His birth, rather that we understand why HE came and His purposes.
Rather like people attempting to put a date on His second coming....we see the signs...which as at his birth were significant and with much meaning....but HE’s chosen not to tell us exactly when.
So too His birth...we can get a general idea but to get caught up in when exactly He was born is to miss the message of the “Good News”....and it is that Good news we celebrate...”A Savior is Born”....and generally when Christians do celebrate the Savior’s arrival.
>> “which was the reason why Mary and Joseph were going to Bethlehem” <<
The real reason was because it was the commandment to go to Jerusalem for the Feast of Sukkot. Joseph also was required to vote in a Roman plebecite, from his home village, which was Bethlehem.
The conjunctions of the particular heavenly bodies that the Jewish astronomers from Babylon observed were also verified to have occured then by NASA computation.
>> “Christ fulfilled all the shadows of things to come.” <<
Actually, no, he only completed some interim fulfillments.
The final fulfillments of Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, The Last Great Day, and Purim are yet to come.
And Yehova is definitely incensed when men celebrate on pagan feast dates. He gave us the days to celebrate, and we are to do no others.
Indeed! I recall scriptures concerning a lecture to the Israelites, "not to learn the ways of the heathens (pagans)"! I'm pretty sure those rules apply to the branch as well!
the Apostle says,... “let no one act as your judge in regard to . . .”
He is saying don’t let anyone tell you these things are ‘requirements’ for fellowship with God.... They were only shadows of the person and work of Christ,.... He has not only come and fulfilled those shadows, but He is ‘totally sufficient’.
Colossians 2:16 and 17.... in no way forbids believers from commemorating something such as the birth of Christ if it is done out of love, devotion, and the joy the season gives when used as a way of focusing on the Savior and not as a religious duty...... The issue is not the observance date or time, but the reason, the attitudes and the spirit in which it is done.
I personally believe The Messiah was born in the 1st day of God’s calendar 6th month. Exactly 40 days before the Day of Atonement - where on the day of Atonement He was dedicated At the temple after the circumcision and the day purification of Miriam. They would still be in the area or Tabernacles for him to dwell as John put it...
