As to the season of the year in which Christ was born, there is among the learned as great a diversity of opinion as that relating to the year itself. It is claimed by many Biblical scholars that December 25th, the day celebrated in Christendom as Christmas, cannot be the correct date. We believe April 6th to be the birthday of Jesus Christ as indicated in a revelation of the present dispensation already cited in which that day is made without qualification the completion of the one thousand eight hundred and thirtieth year since the coming of the Lord in the Flesh. This acceptance is admittedly based on faith in modern revelation, and in no wise is set forth as the result of chronological research or analysis. We believe that Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea, April 6, 1 B.C.James Talmage, Jesus the Christ, p.104
Even more problematic is the “revealed” year of 1 B.C. Since the Bible tells us that Herod sought to kill the baby Jesus, and Herod died in 4 B.C., Jesus would have to have been born prior to that time. And, since Herod was looking for a child of two years and under, Jesus could have been born as early as 6 B.C.
