When was Jesus born?

'TIS THE SEASON: When Was Jesus Born—B.C. or A.D.? How the divide between B.C. and A.D. was calculated (Megan Sauter, Bible History Daily). This essay was first published in 2017, but I missed it then.

The current chief editor of BAR, Robert Cargill, published a related essay some years ago. See here. And remember, as per my comments there, that we really have very little idea when Jesus was born.
