O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which that Sun was born...Christ should be born."
"O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which that Sun was born...Christ should be born."In other words,the Savior's birth was bei ng observed at the winter solstice. What is seldom known, however, is that prior to that time, Christ's birth was placed on a variety of days, indicating its non-historicity:
January 5th, January 6th, March 25th, March 28th, April 19th, April 20th, May 20th, August 21st, November 17th and November 19th.
"But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings."
"In the sacred site at Newgrange is a 5,000-year-old 'cross of light' representing the resurrection to life and rebirth on 'December 25th.'"
"'Christmas' is thus an extremely ancient celebration, predating the Christian era by many millennia."
