The Pope attested to that error recently. Was purely a math error on the part of a scribe when they made the new calendar if I remember right.<quoted text>
Well done PM
Did you factor in this odd situation?
Todays scholars can only use the known, that is historical reigning Roman Emperors as a reference in determining dates.
So, since the Bible clearly and unambiguously claims that Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the King, then he, Jesus, had to have been born no later than 4 B.C.
Jesus could only have been born a minimum of 4 years before the birth of Jesus.
Damned math heads. They messed up religion. Then science.
