    Jeremiah10:2 tells me not to follow the way of the heathen, sound doctrine, how could this verse harden my heart, Lorin?Luke 2:34 is God telling Mary and Joseph that Jesus will be a "sign that will be spoken against." You accuse me wrongly, I speak against the holiday that is based on pagan not bliblical truth, I do not speak against His Son our Lord. I don't see any math in Luke 1 and 2.

    lu2677,
    The entire book of Leviticus relates to Jesus Christ. THEREFORE Leviticus 23 the Laws of the Lord are all pertaining to the Messiah. Jesus Christ is the Messiah.Do not let Jermiah 10:2 harden your heart. Nor let Luke 2:34 take hold and we speak against the sign.The gentiles have a hard time accepting that Jesus Christ is for both ,but clearly in this verse and 35 show that their hearts

    lu2767, To understand anything of the Birth of Christ . You need to know this: The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar, meaning that months are based on lunar months, but years are based on solar years.[11] The calendar year features twelve lunar months of twenty-nine or thirty days, with an intercalary lunar month added periodically to synchronize the twelve lunar cycles with the longer sola
