However, their knowledge and ours is somewhat
similar, in so far as King Herod was on the
throne of Israel at the time the, MAGI, "came
from the east",
bringing gold, frankincense and myrrh; three of
the most expensive products in existence at that
time. Suggesting the MAGI were indeed

that had led them on their quest. (A
study of heavenly bodies having gone on for over
1000 or even 2000 years prior to the birth of
Jesus in places such as Babylon and Persia).
as an outsider supported by the Romans, the
presence of the MAGI on such a quest in Israel,
would, no-doubt, incense King Herod and when the
MAGI did not return to him with information as to
where this birth had occurred, he had all

this story has two definite and two uncertain
clues on offer. The first certainty is the
presence of Herod the Great; considered one of
the most ruthless men to ever exist. The second
certainty, is that, the baby Jesus, could have
reached the age of near enough two year when the
MAGI found him. But the uncertainties are,

we can now determine with some accuracy via
computer generated systems, that the planet,
Saturn, was obliterated by Jupiter in 7
B.C. but of special significance is that,
Jupiter, the planet associated with kings, was
obliterated by the Moon in 6 B.C. and the
significance of this is that it would only occur
on a special day about every 820 years.
Therefore, in 6 B.C., the chances are the real
birth day of Jesus could have been what is now,
April the 17th. and the year 2005 is really 2011.
