Yesterday we looked at when Jesus was born… about AD8. Not everyone agrees on that, but I’m fairly certain about that date myself.
In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. And he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Luke does a beautiful job of adding all kinds of detail. This is one of the most convincing reasons as to why the Gospels are NOT myth, legend, or any kind of fiction.
