Can it be determined month that Jesus was born by recalculating the position of when the Star of Bethlehem?

INRI represents the Latin inscription IESVS NAZARENVS REX IVDÆORVM meaning Jesus the Nazarene King of the Jews
IRS = IESVS REX SVPREMO means JESUS THE SUPREME KING
He was born April 15. Isn't that when IRS taxes are due?

The Bible says that Jesus was born while Mary and Joseph were in Bethlehem to pay their yearly taxes. In the Roman empire, that happened in the springtime or the Summer. *That* is when Jesus was born.
Christmas was moved to midwinter by the Catholic Church during the dark ages, because the Church didn't want newly converted Pagans to participate in the pagan mid-winter festivals.
It's all political.

So it is thought, there was a Supernova about that time
It was so bright it could be seen in Daylight for about 30 days
Its remnants are now left over as the Orion Nebula lit from behind by a white Dwarf
Betelgeuse is a Red Giant on Orion's left Shoulder
And it is very unstable
it could go Supernova at any time
Two Nebulae in the same Constellation is not bad goingSource(s): BETELGUESE

No. It's been tried many times, but it would help if someone could actually identify what the star even was.

The Star was a supernatural occurence. When the wise man say, we see the star in the east, this also translates to “at its rising” meaning the star rose from the opposite direction in the sky as the other stars. The wisemen would have noticed this while the rest of the land would not recognize it.
We unfortunately cannot say when it rose. However, we cannot dismiss this occurrence as “fiction”. This is a historically written and accurate event.
(Others dismiss Jesus as “fiction” just because they did not see it with their eyes yet still believe evolution.) it takes more faith to believe in evolution (no evidence) than in Jesus (documented by many as REAL).Source(s): New Answers Book 2

The star of bethlehem is fiction. Nobody recorded its existence or any phenomena that could have been it. Not the Romans, Greeks, Indians, Chinese, Aztecs, Incas or Mayans made note of it. Your jesus is fiction kiddo

Theologist have narrowed it down to within a couple weeks and that star was one of our planets. Don't recall which. Old scrolls locked away in a vault that are basis for several different religious bibles are written in an ancient Hebrew language that even yet today has not been well interpreted and details many things such as Joseph and Marys trek and exile,the birth of Jesus.
Some estimate June, and consider, calendars were different 2000 years ago.
Late June, (our calendar) there was a modeled conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn and the season in Jerusalem then was warm.

His birth month was probably March or April. The Star of Bethlehem may have been a conjunction of Jupiter and Venus. However that being said in order to get an approximation of the month we would have to know the year Jesus was born. Astronomers have computer programmes that allow them to "see" what the sky looked like thousands of years ago from any location on earth.

No, but the fact that the shepherds were out watching their flocks at night indicates that the weather was warm enough for them, placing it roughly in September.

It could, if A, the year of his birth was agreed upon, B, if the star in question could be identified, and C, if he had been a real person at all. He wasn't.
