"(John 8.57) and"It has taken 46 years to build this Temple, and you can rebuild it in three days?

But when Jesus said "this temple," he meant his own body"(John 2.20-21).

Following the rules of the game, we will first piece together the New Testament framework and then we'll put the individual pieces hidden in the Old Testament in their correct places in order to obtain the image that the authors of the Bible wanted us to play with.

D., a simple calculation gives us the year in which Jesus was killed - 35 A. Irenaeus - 40-50 years - which gives us a date somewhere between 15 and 5 B. A little known astronomical fact comes to our aid here, the established date that Halley's comet passed over Bethlehem, 12 B. So let's take our chronological table and see whether it effectively corresponds to this important and exact chronological data.

C., and the fact that this was probably the star that guided the Magi. as we would have, in any case, calculated by subtracting 50 years from the year of his death which, as we have seen, could have been 35 B. 50 has not been chosen arbitrarily but on the basis of the limits imposed by Irenaeus and in the verses from John 2.20-21 and 8.57 quoted above. In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites came out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the Lord.

However, despite the fact that it is confirmed by the Gospels, the year the comet passed over Bethlehem cannot be the year Jesus was born. Personally, on the basis of what comes next, I'm certain that 15 B. is the correct date because this dating, together with the more precise meaning I’ve given to the term 'generation', gives us the additional confirmation of a more coherent and complex timeline, that of the kings of Judah and Israel. An analysis ofour chronological table shows us that this was 945 B. Let's identify now the year reconstruction began after the period of exile.

And the reason for this is clear from Matthew 2.16 in which we read that: “When Herod saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he was infuriated, and he sent and killed all the children in and around Bethlehem who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had learned from the wise men”. Our second step involves a calculation based on Matthew 1.17 which refers to fourteen generations passing between Christ and Babylon. To do this we need to bear in mind the information reported in Ezra 7.7-10 in which we read of Ezra’s return: “There went up some of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinim, to Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.

Whatever shall seem good to you and to your brothers to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, do that after the will of your God.
