Birth and Conception of King David ( A Chronology Study)
by Murrell G. Selden

Previously I had found that Jesus was conceived in 3 B.C.E. on Tishri 1
(Feast of Trumpets), and his conception was marked by the in the skies by the conjunction of
Jupiter with Regulus. Here is the birth of John & Jesus scheme
as dertermined from my interpretation of Luke 1 below. I had previously determined the date of the Exodus as 1510 B.C.E. (by
several different ways). I knew King David was 30 when he began
to rule, though he was probably 30 in the year before too, because he
said to be born near Sivan 6 (according to tradition). But I
found this almost true by the "Bethlehem Star Theory" and believe he
was born 6/10 of 1105 B.C.E. . See the Stellarium (astronomy
program) birth picture below with my determinations added.
Now, the conception of
Yeshua in the chart below was on Tishri 1 in 3 B.C.E., and it was
marked by the conjunction of Regulus and Jupiter. So, I figured
back near Tishri 1 via Stellarium (astronomy program) and see if
anything similar for King David.
That picture is below too.
Here is the rulership picture of the sky for King David in 1074
B.C.E. which began in Nisan 1. But he was 30 in 1075
B.C.E., so his birth was 30 years earlier in 1105 B.C. E. And
this is what the sky pictures show.

If these pictures are
correct ( I have confidence in the one for the birth of Jesus), then
King David was conceived on a conjunction of Regulus with Jupiter, the
same as for Yeshua, but not on Tishri 1. When Jesus was born, the
sign was a conjunction of Venus with Jupiter. But for King David
it was a conjunction of Venus with Regulus. The birth period for
King David appears to be 43 weeks, which happens sometimes now.
birthdate appears to be Sivan 14 instead of Sivan 6, which was
expected. For reference the Julian Day numbers are as follows:
Birth of King David conjunction (1317983).
Conception of King David (1317687).
tradition suggests that King David both was born and died on
Shavuot, which seems close., if the above analysis is correct.
