When was Jesus really born?


#1

In my Jornada de Fe Class we were told Jesus was not born on 12/25. From the time the Angel appeared to Mary to 9 months later, Jesus was born around September or October. Can this be true?

These links should be helpful in explaining the history of Christ’s birth being celebrated on December 25. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by these links, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
