    Very interesting. I look for Biblical Archaeology Review to print something on this soon, and I expect it will turn up on the History Channel or Discovery Channel or some such.

    Notice the death date given -- 4 BC. A reminder of the problems of the chronology surrounding the birth of Jesus.

    It's actually not a problem to date the chronology if you look to the Scriptures, and remember that our modern dates don't quite line up with ancient dates. Encyclopedia Britannica has a handy-dandy calendar converter, but I can no longer access it since I no longer own the software.

    On the same note, I have lots of Russian kids on my bus, and their holidays are different than ours because they still go by the old calendar. But the old-not-new calendar, not the old-old calendar.
