    Here is a chart to visually demonstrate Josephus’ dating. An explanation and analysis is given afterwards:

    We shall now turn to the ancient christian chronologies. They all demonstrate later dates on Herod the Great and the majority of his posterity. A comparison between these and Josephus attempts to answer the question, why are they different? Julius Africanus, Tertullian, Eusebius, Jerome, and later the Chronicon Paschale represent historical chronologies heavily influenced by the interpretation of an ancient Biblical prophecy found in the Book of Daniel. A notable exception is the Venerable Bede, the 8th-century chronographer. His portrait is covered later on in this article. Daniel was a Jewish prophet that lived around the 6th century BC. He had a dream about the future of Israel. God spoke to him and concluded the requirement of 70 weeks for the restoration of Israel to everlasting righteousness.15 The term 70 weeksis controversial, and a ubiquitous meaning in scholarly, orthodox, or fundamentalist camps has never occurred. This ambiguity never stopped ancients from using it as a...

    Herod died shortly after an eclipse of the moon, according to Josephus34and modern history has used this passage, along with Whiston’s commentary to define the death date of Herod. William Whiston, who translated Josephus into English and his edition is ubiquitous in the English world, boldly asserted: Whiston attempted to champion a point not intended by Josephus. Josephus did not write about the eclipse as a date identifier but as a solemn sign of a significant event. Josephus’ dating by Olympiads and the regnal system are sufficient, making a lunar eclipse unnecessary for dating. Whiston’s conclusion is questionable. His statement brings up a disputed topic. A previous iteration of this article stated that there were no known eclipses according to NASA’s 2008 or so website for the period surrounding Herod’s death.36 Now NASA has refined its website, and there are many possibilities—4 BC being one of them.37 There are several choices in this era for eclipses in and around Jerusale...

    The assumption throughout this essay has been that Josephus and his extensive use of Roman sources is the definitive guide to dating the year of the birth of Christ and that christian tradition has based much of its dating presuppositions on faulty logic with the Daniel prophecy. However, Jewish tradition surprisingly supports the historic christian position. Both the Talmud Babli and the much later Otzar Midrashim, which is a re-composition of Midrashim texts, succinctly confirm this. Abodah Zarah 9.1 (עבודה זרה ) reads: Most importantly, the writer stated that the house of Herod reigned 103 years. This timeframe was found not only in Abodah Zarah, but also Otzar Midrashim The Diaspora Chapter 5, and again in Chapter 25. It appears that the different chapters have different authors as the details of other events do not remain consistent, but the dates of the Herod dynasty are the same. It was clear from both Abodah Zarah and the Otzar Midrashim The Diasporathat the dates were relev...

    The research so far has succeeded in one of its two aims. The first goal was to establish what dates Josephus and the Church leaders selected in their chronologies. It, however, fails to resolve why the two parties differ. The Church leaders knew and well-respected Josephus’ works, but on the issue of historically mapping the dates around the 80 or so years surrounding the birth of Christ, differ considerably. None of the Church fathers make mention of the difference and try to resolve the disparity. While examining these calendars, along with others not listed here, many, if not most, ancient histories have a 4–10-year discrepancy in their accounts. A comparison between the accounts demonstrates the 4–10-year window never appears in the same place. It is difficult to find any pattern. One possibility is that the histories did not agree on how to convert older lunar-based accounts into their solar calendars. The exclusive lunar year was shorter by about 11 days a year. Over 165 year...
