A Sermon from Luke 2:1-20 By the way, there is a math error in the opening of the sermon. Common scholarship tends to hold that Jesus was born sometime between 6BC and 4BC as Herod the Great died in 4 BC. If we assume 6BC we would say 2020 years ago. I said 2010 years ago. What I was hoping to say was somewhere between 2018 and 2020 years ago. Oops.
