Time Spans: Another New Testament Lie



The New Testament claims that at the time Jesus was born,

    • Herod was king of Judea (Luke 1:5);
    • Quirinius was governor of Syria (Luke 2:2); and
    • Caesar Augustus ruled Rome (Luke 2:1).

There was never a time when these three spans overlapped.





Luke 1:5
"THERE was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea..."


Luke 2:2
"And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria."


Luke 2:1
"...there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed."
