What is the true birth date of Jesus Christ
Scholars have said that the day Jesus was actually born is September 11, 3 BC. The day that we celebrate Christmas, December 25, was adopted by Pope Julius I in 350 AD. He chose the day to counteract other festivals adopted by the Persians and the Romans because he thought they were hedonistic. "The Nativity" was meant to be a solemn celebration.
