September 11, what year?[edit]

In The Star that Astonished the World Dr. Martin claimed Jesus was born Sep 11, which is plausible considering the current fat gnome worshipped on X-mas, but what year? ... said: Rursus (mbork³) 17:07, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

3 BCE http://www.askelm.com/star/star008.htm

Julian not Gregorian[edit]

"Dr. Martin claimed that the birth of Jesus happened on the evening of September 11, 3 BCE on the Gregorian calendar, or the first of Tishri on the Jewish calendar which marks Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.[3]" The current version of the article wrongly cites Martin as calculating the birth of Christ on Sep 11 of 3 BC on the Gregorian Calendar. The source cited makes no reference to the Gregorian calendar, and all astronomy software uses Julian days. Historians and chronologers use the Julian Calendar for events around the first century, and use the Julian Day to calculate days prior to the Roman Era. Therefore, I am changing the text of the article to say the Julian Calendar. Cadwallader (talk) 18:07, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
