Originally posted by divegeesterThe gospel of Luke says that at the time he became twelve his family went up to Jerusalem for the Passover. Anyone that is capable of logic should realize that when a person became twelve, then that was on the twelfth birthday.
Btw the arguments you present here don't make sense. How the heck has Jesus attendance at Passover got anything to do with what's in the video? There is one Passover per year and Jesus could have had his birthday at any time in it. I don't know why I'm even bothering to discuss this with you actually.
Some translations attempt to obscure this meaning by translating what should be he became as he was because of the Christmas tradition. Notice that it does not say after he became twelve, but when he became twelve. When means at the time.
