In Conclusion . . .
Under the topic of “When Was Jesus Born?” I have evaluated biblical, historical, and astronomical evidence to confirm the actual birth date of Jesus from four specific sources, as detailed below. These four sources represent four of the eight pieces of the puzzle for this topic and effectively disprove the traditional date of December 25, 1 BC as the birth date of the Messiah. When assembled, the pieces of the puzzle conclude that Jesus was born on Wednesday, Tishri 1 (September 11) of 3 BC – on the Feast of Trumpets (Hebrew: Yom Teruah; also called Rosh HaShanah).
I believe that the case presented is strong and that the birth date presented is, in fact, the actual birth date of Jesus.
