Do you know the origin of Christmas?

17 December 2015

The Christian Christmas

images (1)Friar Betto tells us that by the 3rd  century, the birth of Jesus was celebrated on January 6th. The commemoration on December 25th was  originated between the 2nd and 3rd centuries when theologians sought to determine the exact date of Jesus’  birth.

According to Lucas1,26 Jesus was conceived at the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere – March 25th and thus was born on December 25th when in the East the sun returns to its upward movement when once there were celebrations in honor of the resurrection of  solar deities.

Another probable  possibility makes Christmas, the Christian version of the pagan festival of the ‘invincible sun god “” – natale Solis Invictus – introduced in the year 274 by the Emperor Aurelian and fixed in the European winter solstice, December 25th.

As Christ is the light of the world, the Christian faith rescued the  pagan commemoration to strengthen the conviction that they were celebrating  the true sun  festivity.

The Christian Christmas inherits the spirit of justice and reconciliation of the sabbatical system and the Jewish jubilee year, in which debts were forgiven, the slaves were freed  and the land distributed.

The concept of gift-giving is associated to the wise kings that led to the infant Jesus, gold – gift given to kings, incense – for the priests, and myrrh – to the prophets.download (2)

It is believed that the kings were magicians or astrologers due to the offered gifts and because they followed the star. In the 9th century was given names and provenance to those kings: Melchior, king of Persia; Gaspar, king of India and Balthasar, king of Arabia.

Today we know that Jesus of Nazareth was born in Nazareth and not in Bethlehem. Judea as it was believed that the Messiah would be born in the city of David.

Interesting isn’t it?
