Question

What is the third verse indicating Jesus’ date of birth? When did Mary get pregnant?

Answer

Luke 1: 36.

And, behold, your cousin Elizabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. (Luke 1: 36)

At the end of the conversation with Mary, Gabriel reportedly said that Elizabeth current pregnancy was at 6 months of gestationElizabeth conceived John the Baptist on 17th of Tishri 3756. 

The chronology is as follow:

Mary got pregnant at the time of 6 months of Elizabeth's gestation.
Mary got pregnant at the time of 6 months of Elizabeth’s gestation.

That Mary got pregnant on 17th of Nisan 3756 is also be known from Gabriel visit to Mary, informing that Elizabeth had also conceived.

Given Gabriel visited Mary on 17th of Nisan 3756, Mary got pregnant with Jesus Christ on 17th of Nisan 3756 as well.

17th of Nisan 3756 Hebrew Calendar falls on March 25th, 5 AD Julian Calendar.

In conclusion, Mary got pregnant on 17th of Nisan 3756 Hebrew Calendar or March 25th, 5 AD Julian Calendar, at the time of Gabriel visit to her. “Mary and the angel” story is always an important part of any Christmas story. Without it we would never have Christmas on December 25.
