ANSWER: Sorry

I only study the Bible and stick to the Bible. I don't allow distractions like history books which if you have been searching them have come to find they are little more than opinions. They rarely agree. One thing the Bible does say is:

Luke 2:1-5 KJV  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.  (2)  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)  (3)  And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.  (4)  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)  (5)  To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

It's not by accidents the Bible used tax records to record the date. There are parallels between Jesus' birth and return. Seeing any tax increases? Now notice the Bible says all the world was taxed. Stick to the basics and understand what is in the Bible before jumping around to collect a bunch of opinions.

Answer
I am answering this from memory. Most historians place Jesus' birth at about 3 BC to 4 AD. That places His birth in the 1st century give or take a few years. I know this can be confusing. I looked at a few websites and not one of them agree.

Matthew 1:17 KJV  So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

Matthew added some interesting notes on the subject but I never studied them in depth.

You can check out my web site which contains a number of articles explaining how the Bible works within patterns between prophecies and the fulfillments recorded in scripture. I've completed 144 studies following those patterns with perfect consistency.
