Episode Summary

Lost Years of Jesus
For thousands of years Christians have celebrated the birth of their saviour on December 25th. But is this the real date of Jesus' birthday? Some scholars feel he may have been born in June. There is also debate as to what year Christ was born. Different dates for his birth are reported in Matthew and Luke. Who were the Wise Men that journeyed to worship the newborn king? Could they possibly have been led by a brightly shining star? And if so, is there a natural explanation? Are they simply allegory? What historical record exists other than the Bible? But most important to the top Jesus scholars is the mystery of whether Jesus was really born in Bethlehem, as the Bible reports, or in his parents' home town of Nazareth. Why is this question being raised? If Jesus was born in Nazareth, what implications might this have on the traditional telling of the Christmas story?moreless
