.mike, you err, truly:

4 . Tammuz= July
5 . Ab= August
6 . Elul= September
7 . Ethanim= October
8 . Bul= November
9 . Chisleu= December
10. Tebeth= January
11. Shebat= February
12. Adar= March

mike, you cannot use the jewish civil calendar to measure the old hebrew months, they are not the samething. The orthodox Jews have deviated greatly from the original times and seasons recorded in the holy scripture, and especially the secular Jews will have no right instruction. And the o.t. passover was in April, April 14. What people call Easter, this time marks our Lord's Passover and Resurrection Day.
---Eloy on 3/23/08

Eloy I think the 24th day of the ninth month is between the 28th and jan 2nd. Dont have a jewish calander handy but that's just a quick calculation.The 24th of the ninth month(Jewish) will not be the 24th of our 12th month. The Passover is the 14th of the 1st month (Jewish) and that is the 20th of our 4th month.

pt.1: Jesus is the cornerstone. "And now set now your heart from this day and upward, before the stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of YHWH: from this day and upward, from the 24th day of the ninth, (from December 24) from the day that the foundation of YHWHs Temple was laid, from this day will I bless you. And in that day will you all say, Thank YHWH, proclaim his name. Sing praise YHWH, for majestically he has done: this known in all the earth." Hag.2:15,18,19+ Is.12:4,5.
---Eloy on 3/22/08

Christmas pt.2 of 2: And the Hebrew ninth month is Chisleu, which is December. "Before she labor-pained she gave birth, before came pain to her, then she delivered a man child. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all who love her, rejoice with her a rejoicing." Isaiah 66:7,10.
---Eloy on 3/22/08

More Christmas scriptures- Matthew 1:18-25+ 2:1-12+ Luke 1:24-38+ 2:1-38.
---Eloy on 3/22/08

The ground was parched, and the weather cold enough for Jesus to be swaddled, which can only be in December and January. Christ was born during the tax season commanded by Caesar Augustus( Luke 2:1-7). "For he springs up as a suckling in his presence, and as a root out of parched ground...And she birthed the son of her, the first-born, and wrapped him in swaddled clothes..." Isaiah 53:2, Luke 2:7.
---Eloy on 3/22/08

Dueteronomy 12:32 - What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

That pretty much says DO NOT add to what the Bible tells you to do.

Mark 7:6 - He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

Pretty much says that only Christian hypocrites associate Pagan holidays with the Bible's teachings.

To decorate a xmas tree on xmas reminds me of when the roman soldiers crowned/decorated our Lord with the crown of thorns..then they put the blue coat on Him then add insult by ordering Him 2drag His own cross..Dont we decorate xmas trees n say the day is our Lords birthday? How Insulting to our Lord..It is Tammus's birthday..a pagan celebration
---jana on 11/14/07


While the Bible includes several chapters talking about the birth of Jesus
1) it never mentions a specific date (or even season)
2) nothwhere are Christians shown celebrating the birth of Christ (nor are they ever commanded to do so).
---StrongAxe on 11/14/07

Christmas came from the same place as the Easter bunny and tooth fairy From man Jesus wasn't born on that day but we set a side that day as his birthday i have heard that he was born in Oct according to the jewish callender but i don't know if that is true or not
---Betty on 11/14/07

Christ is Christmas.
Since He was born and He is the Lord..It is only fitting to honor that event.
---Lisa on 11/13/07

I beleived celebrating christmas isn't bad at all. Although there's no scripture in the bible that will support that we should celebrate this day. But one thing I sure that Christ was born for us and died for us because of our sins. And these are the things we should celebrate of, and He to be praised of. We should worship God not only on christmas day but in every day of our lives. We should give our life to God for exchange of the life that He has given to us.

noone knows of His/Christ's birthday and to use just any date is an insult to the God Almighty we worship and fear/respect. To celebrate it on someone elses birthday is also an insult..
---jana on 5/7/07

If I say I am worshiping Christ on Christmas I am not worshiping someone else. And as a Christian I can freely do whatever I want on Christmas to worship him and give Glory to him,
I am positive that billions have been born on that day but I don't celibrate Christmas for them nor do I listen to fear mongers and critical spirits that want to destroy Gods glory.

There is nothing biblical about christmas being Christ's birthday but there is of Tammus son of Semaranis born on this date and quietly slipped into Christianity during the 2nd century when the pagans joined church..and slowly introduced their false doctrines was here when the 7th day Sabbath was changed...go 2any catholic church n they will tell u the truth.
---jana on 5/4/07

Moderator, so you are saying that the Bible says nothing about the birth of Jesus Christ? Come on, Christmas is what we associate Christ's birth with!

Moderator - Please show the Christmas scriptures, I am not familiar with them.
---Melissa on 5/4/07

The Bible doesn't address the matter of Christmas. Last Sunday, in Sunday School, the teacher gave us a 20 question quiz about Christmas. His intentions were to show how much influence tradition has had over us. Even though I graduated from a Christian College, went to a seminary for graduate work and did my Ph.D. work at a Christain college, I only got 40% on the quiz. The teacher only got 50%. For example: even the date of Christ's birth is not known for sure.

True, many Christmas traditions are steeped in paganism. However, the Christmas season affords an excellent opportunity for the Christian to witness to the non-believer - especially family members - as most are in a more receptive state of mind at this time of year. You know, peace on earth, goodwill to men and all.

Can we exchange gifts then?

Moderator - When it is your birthday, do other people exchange gifts yet you receive none? How would that make you feel? People decorate trees, put out decorations, give gifts to friends and family, spend time with others and yet these people are stating they are doing it to celebrate your birthday? How would you respond? That is what the majority of Christians are doing to Jesus Christ every year. I like the suggestion that if you are going to give a gift, give a gift to a ministry that will win people to the Kingdom of God. I believe Christ would be pleased to have more people come into the Kingdom.

Part 5- Leviticus 23:40, "And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days."

Moderator - Therefore, you are recommending that Christians seek out pagan practices and copy them? That type of logic would be a gross misunderstanding of the Bible.
---a_friend on 11/16/05

Part 4- So putting up a Christmas tree is not evil or good in itself. If we decorate a tree and celebrate in honor of our Lord Jesus then, to us it is good. To those with improper motives, it is evil. There is a Biblical reference for bringing boughs into the house for celebration. The Lord commanded Israel during the feast of tabernacles to do just that.

Part 3- Here the heathen of that day where cutting down trees and decorating them and worshipping them. But the word of the Lord was for his people not to fear this practice as He pointed out to them that the tree itself had no power to do good or evil. Evil is in the heart of man.
---a_friend on 11/16/05

Part 2- 5. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good."

Part 1-Jeremiah 10:1, "Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

2. Everyone gives from choice and, in our cases, it is to remember that God GAVE His Son. More recently, however we have started giving to charity instead of each other and I see this as a growing trend amongst many families. The reason behind it though is still the same, giving because HE GAVE.

Moderator you ask several people if they exchange gifts. What is this worry about the gifts issue and Christmas? In the past I have bought Christmas gifts for many people and have also received gifts. I've never thought of it as 'exchanging' gifts. I've given, others have given, but I've never given to receive in return, nor do I think have they.

Moderator - When it is your birthday, do other people get gifts or do you get the gifts. Of course you get the gifts for your birthday not Susy down the street. So why does everyone get gifts other than Jesus, yet it is suppose to be His birthday. The reason? The gift giving is from the pagan ritual of the sun god which is where this holiday comes from - not Christianity.
---M.P. on 11/15/05

Alan; How about Jer.10.2 "Learn not the ways of the heathen" KJV?
---1st_cliff on 11/15/05

Mod .. there is no permission given in the Bible for me to copy angels and fly in the sky. Neither is there a prohibition against flying in an aeroplane. So I do it.
There is no permission given to celebrate Jesus birth ... nor any prohibition. So I do it.

Moderator - I see nothing wrong with celebrating Christmas provided that ONLY Christ is celebrated and the pagan pieces are left out. For example do you exchange gifts?
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/15/05

Moderator ... you KNOW what the "Christmas" scriptures are. They are those that tell the "Christmas story" of the birth of Jesus. OK, they do not use the word, and the time of year when we celebrate is inaccurate, and there is no command to celebrate Jesus birth, but please can you quote a single scripture to say we should not celebrate that great gift. Unless you can find that prohibition, we are free to celebrate.

Moderator - Why? By your own words, it isn't in the Bible.

It says nothing about Christmas season itself in there. It does speak of Jesus'birth, but he was born in Sept or around there, not Dec. the only writing about ANY celebration in dec is what the Jewish celebrate called the feast of dedication or feast of lights (jn10:22).
---candice on 11/15/05

Edward, In Jeremiah, it says not go cut down a tree, fashion graven images out of it, and decorate the images as symbols of worship. It says nothing about bringing a tree into the house & decorating it.

Moderator - What's the difference Ann? Do you exchange gifts at Christmas?
---Ann5758 on 11/15/05

I've been told by one source that Christmas originated from pagan festivals. I also read an article that said Dec. 25, came from a festival celebrating the birthday of an ancient sun god Mithras. Plz read Luke 2:7-8. Late December is Judea's cold and rainy season. Would shepherds actually keep their flocks out in the open fields on a cold December night? Another question of mine is what does santa clause, reindeer, decorated trees, holly, mistletoe and the like--have to do with the birth of Jesus?

Moderator - You are correct Joshua they have nothing to do with the birth of Christ. Those are some of the pagan traditions mixed in with some of the Christian traditions giving us a combo package of practices for Christmas which is anything, but Christian. Add the gift giving part in also. When it's your birthday, does someone else get the gifts?
---Joshua on 11/15/05

Moderator, no disrespect, but I don't know what world you live in. Most EVERY Christian I know (and I know a lot) celebrates Christmas. It's a time of love and giving, why must you insist that it is 'evil' JUST because it doesn't talk about it in the Bible- Computers aren't in the Bible, but you use one constantly. You act as if one has to have a SCRIPTURE reference for every move they make, or the thing is EVIL! What's up with that?

Moderator - Show scriptures to back up your comments.

in genesis it tells us not to go into the woods and cut down a tree and decorate it with gold and silver. so be careful, remember its to celebrate the birth of our lord and saviour.

Absolutely nothing! You can read various stories of how Christmas came about on the Internet.

A thing is wrong if you take it that way.John Tesh's music,eg,is considered "New Age".But he thanks Jesus for sitting at the piano with him.He's a devoted Christian.I don't consider his music New Age,so I enjoy his talent.I don't celebrate the paganism of the holiday,I celebrate Christ.To me,it's not wrong,it's glorious.

Moderator - Ann do you exchange gifts? Yes or no.
---Ann5758 on 11/14/05

Moderator:) Matthew Chapter 2, Luke Chapter 2. These chapters speak of the birth of Jesus. Therefore the reason we celebrate Christmas. As I said before, I'm not debating the word "Christmas", nor am I debating Christianity vs. pagonism. True, the Bible doesn't specifically say the word "Christmas", but Jesus' birth is the reason we celebrate.

Moderator - I know very very few Christians that celebrate Jesus's birthday on Christmas. Do you exchange gifts?
