What is the true birthplace of the man known to us as Jesus, and how far off is history in terms of accuracy as to his year of birth?
MICHAEL: The birthplace of the man Jesus was in a village that no longer exists. In order to maintain the fiction of the prophecies, Bethlehem was promoted, with its tale of inns and shepherds. The man Jesus was born in the reign of Augustus in what is now known as the year 4 BC. It has been said that the year 6 BC is the date, but this is off by two years. We also say that there is no truth to the story of a midwinter birth. It was an ordinary spring night. No angels, no kings, no danger.
