April Sixth

Today we are featuring a book review, April Sixth, by John C. Lefgren, which focuses on the significance of the date, April sixth. 

John C. Lefgren's April Sixth purports to be a scholarly work that attempts to show that both the birth and resurrection of Jesus fell on April sixth and that the Church was organized exactly 1830 years to the day after Jesus' birth. However, if one seeks a careful summary of the "latest evidence" (p. xv) promised in the "Foreword," he has come to the wrong place. The work literally abounds in unjustified assumptions, misinformation, and misunderstandings on a number of levels.
