YearEvents and Comments
1 BC1 BC: Birth of Jesus Christ, Emmanuel (meaning God is with us) is born In Bethlehem of the line of David.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten (raised from the dead) son that whosoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life, but he who does not believe is condemned already.”

(Jesus is ~30 yrs of age when he is baptized in 29 AD, the 15th yr of Tiberius’ reign which dates his birth to 1 BC)

The festival of Sukkot is called “The Festival of EMMANUEL”, or “The Festival of God With Us”.

NOTE! If Mary was impregnated by the Holy Spirit on the same day the foundation stone was laid years prior (since prophecy calls Jesus a foundation stone), then Jesus would be born during Sukkot (between late September to late October). The Jewish feast of Sukkot represents the marriage between God and the Jews under a chuppah (wedding tent). It also represents God dwelling and reigning in Jerusalem when He sets up His earthly kingdom.

Prophecies concerning the birth of the Messiah: He will be born in Bethlehem. (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1). He will be a descendant of King David (Isaiah 11:1-5; Matthew 1:1, 6). He will be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14).

Micah 5:2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.

4 BC

4 BC: Herod (the Great not to be confused with his sons all named Herods) named Malthrace’s elder son Archelaus to be his successor as king, with his sons Antipas and Philip as tetrarchs. However; after Herod’s death, Augustus divided Herod’s kingdom between these three sons, but did not recognize Archelaus as king. (Herod had earlier suspected that Archelaus would betray him due to Antipater’s influence.)

4 BC: Herod’s son, Antipater is executed.

Martin Luther wrote: “Herod even killed his own son born of a Jewish mother. He was worried that through this son (his own son) the scepter might revert to the Jews (through the Jewish mother), and that this son might gain the Jews’ loyalty, since, as Philo records, the rumor of the birth of (the) Christ had been spread abroad.” Martin Luther

Quipping about how Herod the Great of Judea treated his offspring, the Roman Emperor Augustus remarked: “I would rather be a pig in Herod’s court than one of his sons”. Caesar Augustus

Note: Herod, abiding by Jewish laws would never eat pork. Therefore; pigs would be safe, unlike his sons whom he feared would betray and kill him
