Birth of the Lamb of God, the Messiah

Rosh Codesh Nisan / ראש חודש ניסן

Beginning of new Hebrew month of Nisan. Nisan is the 1st month of the Hebrew year, and responds to March or April on the Gregorian calendar.

Rosh Chodesh Nisan begins at sundown today Friday, 08 April 2016.

What's the significance of this day for Christians? The Birth of the Lamb of God, Agnus Dei.

LAMB OF GOD, born at midnight, Nisan 1
which responds to April 9 for this year 2016

"Only in the lambing season do shepherds watch their flocks by night," Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn says. In late March and and early April the shepherds would watch for lambs being born in the fields, he explains. "So here they are, out looking for lambs to be born and who do they find? The Lamb of God."

Jewish observances coincide with key moments in the life of Christ:
-- Passover lines up with Jesus' death.
-- He rose on the Feast of First Fruits, and created the Church with the sending of his Holy Spirit on Shavuot or Pentecost.
-- The Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah foretells the Messiah's second coming.

So looking for a Jewish holiday in the spring that would fit with the Messiah's birth, Cahn settles on Nisan 1, because it symbolizes a new beginning.

Most scholars agree that the present tradition of celebrating Jesus' birth in December dates back to Emperor Constantine and his desire to coopt the Roman holiday of Saturnalia, a pagan celebration that includes a sacrifice to Saturn, a public banquet, gifts and a carnival-like atmosphere.
