Benedict’s claim, published in his third and final volume of Jesus’ biography, aligns with similar views of historians who have said Jesus could have been born anytime between 7BC and 2BC.
The Pope also argues that there were no oxen, donkeys or camels — common in nativity scenes — at the birth of Christ.
“There is no mention of animals in the Gospels,” he wrote.
The book, “Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives” released Wednesday and will be published in nine languages.
It was released under the Pope’s real name, Joseph Ratzinger. The first two volumes of the biography were published in 2007 and 2011.
