Historical Date of the Incarnation

According to Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, and as supported by my research and writing in Biblical chronology, February 25th about midnight (at the start of that day) is the historical date of the Annunciation and Incarnation.

See my book: Important Dates in the Lives of Jesus and Mary

In my chronology (controversially), Jesus was conceived and born in the year 15 B.C. and crucified in A.D. 19. Then A.D. 15 is the year of the start of His ministry (October 4th).

The Beginning of the Ministry of John the Baptist was in the spring of A.D. 15.

I expect momentous events to occur in the Church during the 2000th anniversary of the Ministry of Jesus, which would be October 2015 to April of 2019.

And since this spring is the 2000th anniversary of the start of John the Baptist’s preaching — Repent. For the kingdom of heaven has drawn near. — I also expect some significant event to coincide with that anniversary. Therefore, sometime this spring (2015), in March or April, Pope Francis will issue some type of controversial teaching. I don’t know if it will be the encyclical on climate change, scheduled for release in March or April, or some other teaching document.

But his teachings and decisions on discipline in October of 2015, coinciding with the 2000th anniversary of the start of Jesus’ ministry, will be much more extensive and controversial.

    Good evening Ron,
    Why do you consider 15b.c. as Jesus birth? It’s a quite different value in respect to historician research, because even considering the ipothesis of Quirinius as an extraordinary official of Augustus Census in Palestine under the government of Sentius Saturninus, whe should assume about 8 b.c. as earliest birth date. It’s for sure ad you wrote controversial, but the dates of the second Census of emperor Augustus, as wrote in Gospel, leave narrow margins.
