But this is also information that is useful in calculating Jesus' birth since St.
Luke provided the information from the Angel Gabriel that St.
Most scholars agree that the first six books cannot be written later than the 300s and some scholars argue that it may have been written in the 200's or even earlier.
The Constitution of the Holy Apostles is not as old as the Church document The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, known simple as the Didache, meaning "The Teaching," that was written between 50-100 AD.
The Didache is acknowledged as the first catechism of the early Church.
Scholars agree that the Didache is the predecessor of the Constitution and the content of that ancient first catechism is, in fact, included within the eight books of the Constitution.There is no doubt, however, that the Constitution of the Holy Apostles is an extremely ancient document written by the Fathers of the Church.Testimony supporting the year of Jesus' birth as 3/2 BC is also found in the writings of the early Church Fathers. Clement of Alexandria (150-215 AD), head of the Christian school of Catechesis and Theology in Alexandria, Egypt, recorded that Jesus of Nazareth was born in the twenty-eighth year of the reign of the Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus. Clement was calculating the beginning of Augustus' reign from the year 727 AUC (a dating system from the foundation of the city of Rome), or in our time, 27 BC when the Roman Senate conferred upon him the title "Augustus." St. Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea Maritima in the Holy Land, and was recorded in Bishop Eusebius' Church History written in the 4 century AD (Church History, V). Clement reported that diverse opinions existed on the identification of both the month and day of the Savior's birth.Clement's calculation gives the date 3 BC for Jesus' birth (Christianity and the Roman Empire: Background Texts, Ralph Novak, page 282). Some Biblical chronologists dated Jesus' birth to April 19, and this date became the official celebration of the Nativity of the Savior in the Roman Catholic Church.
John the Baptist was six months older than Jesus (as the ancients counted): And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month (Luke -37). John the Baptist's ministry and the information concerning the difference in months between John and Jesus' conceptions, it can be calculated that both St.John and Jesus' births were probably in year 3/2 BC.
