Mary’s pregnancy: Nine months in 3759

The Star of Bethlehem DVD shows the sky on Jesus’ birth date, but doesn’t talk about it, so I froze the frame and blew it way up.  It looked to me like it said He was born on June 17, 2 BC.  When I checked this against the Hebrew calendar, I found that this day was Sivan 15, 3759.  On the Jewish calendar, Sivan is the THIRD month.

Check this out!

  • Sivan 15 = THREE for the Trinity, ONE for God’s only begotten Son with FIVE which is Mary’s number.
  • 3759 = THREE, SEVEN for completeness and creation, FIVE for Mary, and NINE for the end of pregnancy.

I got curious about Mary’s pregnancy.  It’s a girl thing.  There are two ways to calculate pregnancy and due dates.  One is the first day of the Last Menstrual Period (Day 1 LMP) + 40 weeks.  The other is Conception + 38 weeks.  (Most women ovulate 14 days after Day 1 LMP.)  I counted 40 and 38 weeks backwards on a calendar from June 17th, then plugged dates into a “When are you due?” calculator.  It gave me back June 17th due dates for both.

  • Day1 LMP: Sept 10, 3 BC + 40 weeks = Due date June 17, 2 BC
    • Tishri 1, 3759 + 40 weeks = Due date Sivan 15, 3759
  • Conception: Sept 24, 3 BC + 38 weeks = Due date June 17, 2 BC
    • Tishri 15, 3759 + 38 weeks = Due date Sivan 15, 3759

Something very cool happened here. Did you notice?  Day 1 LMP lands smack on Rosh Hashanah, New Year’s Day of 3759 and Conception lands smack on the first day of Sukkot, the Festival of Tabernacles!

Forgive me for getting goosebumps!  But … you gotta admit, it is just totally cool that Jesus’ very first week as a human being on Earth were spent inside his mommy’s womb during the most joyful festival in the Jewish calendar, the time referred to as “the Season of our Rejoicing” and during which Jews eat, sleep and pray outdoors in sukkahs (aka, booths, tabernacles) covered with the fruits of harvest.  Read about Sukkot @ http://www.jewfaq.org/holiday5.htm and think about the holiday in terms of Jesus’ coming to Earth.  It’s quite something!

Dating the Annunciation of Mary in 3 BC

According to the Star of Bethlehem sky charts, Jesus was born in June of 2 BC.  The Annunciation had to have occurred at least 9 months prior, which puts it into the previous year.  Luke 1:26 says the Annunciation happened “in the sixth month.”  This is Elul on the Jewish calendar.

Jewish calendar

I find it really compelling to put the events of Jesus’ life on to the Jewish and common calendars, because it helps me understand in a more immediate way that Jesus really was conceived and gestated and born in a real place and time to a real woman. He really grew up and taught and died and rose again on real dates, and in a place and time about which we know quite a lot.

Dating the Annunciation

It is customary to assume Mary conceived at the Annunciation, but my calculations suggest conception occurred the following month.  Luke 1:31 records the angel Gabriel using the future tense – “you will conceive in your womb” – which supports my conclusion.

PLEASE NOTE: On March 31, 2014, I posted a blog about Mary and Medjugorje in which I messed up and said Jesus was born in 1 BC. Sorry ’bout that! I put a note on the blog that it’s wrong. If I get to it, I’m going to redo the Medjugorje calculations and see if they amount to a hill of beans. https://polination.wordpress.com/2014/03/31/mary-has-been-appearing-at-medjugorje-for-33-years/
