Could The Date Jesus Was Born Be Linked To 9/11
With Christmas fast approaching I was interested to read on Dixie's blog that some 'experts' believe that Jesus was actually born on September 11th, 3BC.
There has always been much debate as to when Jesus was actually born, but it was the September 11th bit that caught my eye more than the year.
September 11th is now remembered because of 9/11 when two hijacked aircraft crashed into the World Trade Center and a third smashed into The Pentagon. Nearly 3,000 people were killed.
Surely there can't be any significance between Jesus being born and 9/11, can there? Probably not but, for those into mystical style numbers, there are 111 days left to the year on September 11th.
Also the Ethiopian calendar usually starts on the September 11th.
But going back to Jesus being born on this date, according to the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge (ASK) this was the Jewish Day of Trumpets.
What is the significance of this Day of Trumpets in 3BC? According to ASK it was all in the stars. To quote them:
"Look at the celestial events that occurred around that Rosh ha-Shanah date of September 11th in 3 B.C.E. Exactly one month before (on August 12) the world would have witnessed the close conjunction of Jupiter (reckoned astrologically as the Father) and Venus (the Mother) when they were only .07 degrees from one another when they appeared as morning stars on the eastern horizon. This was a very close union. But then, nineteen days later (August 31), Venus came to within .36 degrees of Mercury in a very similar astronomical display.
Then, on September 11th, the New Moon occurred which represented the Jewish New Year. This happened when Jupiter (the King planet) was then approaching Regulus (the King star). And, on September 14, Jupiter and Regulus came to their first of three conjunctions in this extraordinary year. Then, over an eight month period, Jupiter made its 'crowning effect' over the King star Regulus."
Seemingly, quoting again, there could not have been a 'better astronomical testimony to the birth of the new messianic king from the Jewish point of view'
It is also said by some that the world, as per Genesis in the Bible, all started on, yes you've guessed, September 11th. Okay, on dodgy ground here as there are a myriad of theories as to when the world was formed. Some even say the Earth was formed 4.5 billion years ago ... now if that was on a September 11th I've no idea!
Moving on, Mahatma Gandhi coined the term 'Satyagraha' on September 11th, 1906. In his own worlds this means:
"I began to call the Indian movement Satyagraha, that is to say, the Force which is born of Truth and Love or non-violence ..."
It's strange where you can end up once you start writing but, whatever our opinion of dates and Jesus, the one thing that I retain in my mind is that He taught love and forgiveness. Add to that Gandhi's truth and non violence and we have a pretty good ideal to follow - whatever our beliefs.
