Book: The Birth of Jesus, A New Christian Holiday by Walter Parkscategories: Book, Jesus Baby, Star of Bethlehem, Magi, Christ, God, Jesus Birth
Walter Parksabout this book: I have become concerned that Christmas, which is supposed to be the birthday of Jesus has become basically a commercial holiday. This is becoming more and more of a problem for Christians. Many feel that Jesus is being left out of this very important holiday.
I therefore wrote this book as a suggestion for creating a new Christian holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
I suggest that the date be set to correspond to the actual birthday of Jesus. He was not born December 25, 0 AD. This date was selected by a Monk in the 6th century AD. We believe that we have learned the more precise date of His birth.
First we searched for the scientific evidence to show when the Star of Bethlehem actually appeared and the scientific manner that God used to create and display it. We learned that the Star of Bethlehem was the conjunction of the planets Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
Studying the details of his birth in the Bible gave additional evidence for the date of His birth.
It is time for us to set a pure Christian holiday to celebrate His birth. Let's work towards it.
