If Christ was born on December 25, then He had to die in June. June is not the month of Passover.?
3/12 year ministry, Daniel 9:26 & Luke 3:23
If you observe a day, your reason doesn't change the fact that it's pagan. Do you really think those Roman's thought that their observance brought in Spring? There's only one purpose for the 4th of July. It doesn't matter if you're Slovak, Chinese or anything else. Christ was cut off in the midst of a week (Wednesday), as the Passover Lamb, it was in March or April. 6 months before would be the Fall (September/October). It is not a Christian Day

Zechariah served on the course of abia which is a date. To make a long story short, that puts Jesus's birthday in late September.

The actual date ion His birth is not recorded, and is therefore not known.

Well, I don't believe that Jesus was born on the 25th of December, but I don't follow your logic, either. What are you claiming the 62 times seven of Daniel represents? Luke only says 'about 30'. That is vague enough to leave months, if not a few years, of variation.

Jesus never existed, the whole story is BS.

Nobody seriously thinks December 25 was His birth-date. It's simply the 'official birthday' much as Queen Elizabeth II has an official birthday that is different to her actual birthday. Clues about the birth of John the Baptist (in the Bible) indicated that he was six months older than his relative, Jesus, and that John was born in spring. That would make Jesus' birthdate autumn, perhaps late September or early October. But that would mean Mary conceived late December! And the Jewish festival of lights then would be amazingly appropriate for the Light of the World to start His arrival on Earth, in the virgin's womb! And that would also fit in with Jesus having a 3 and a half year ministry, ending at Passover (early spring).

He wasn't born on December 25th. He would have been born in the spring or early summer based upon the position in the sky of the stars that the wisemen followed. Emperor Constantine is the one who decided Christ's birthday should be celebrated on December 25.

No one know what is the date of Jesus' birth. In fact, first century Jews did not celebrate birthdays. So not even Jesus' mother could tell you what his birthday is.
December 25 was originally the Roman feast of Saturnalia - a celebration of the winter solstice also known for when the days were no longer getting shorter. It was a time for feasting, goodwill, generosity to the poor, and the exchange of gifts.
When Christianity overwhelmed the Roman paganism they used the existing feasts to celebrate Christian themes. This was a common practice in ancient times. It representing a conquering of paganism and replacing the celebrations with Christian ideals.
Passover (and Easter) are based on the lunar calendar.

i know of no tradition or church that claims that Dec. 25 is anything other than a day on which Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, not Jesus's actual date of birth.
It is simply a feast day on which to celebrate, and yes, it was chosen to Christianize popular pagan celebrations such as Yule.

Most Christians know that December 25th isn't the real date of Jesus' supposed birth.
