The fascinating history of events surrounding Jesus' birth. On Feb. 5, 2 B.C. the Roman Senate passed a bill making Augustus Caesar the "father of the country." They decreed that the whole Roman world should ratify this document, and Cyrenius was sent to Syria and Palestine to conduct this "census" (enrollment). See Luke 2:1. This and many other historical events prove conclusively that Jesus was born in 2 B.C.
