Στο κείμενο αυτό αποδεικνύεται, βάσει του α΄ κεφαλαίου του Κατά Λουκάν Ευαγγγελίου και της νομικής λατρείας της Παλαιάς Διαθήκης, ότι η Γέννηση του Θεανθρώπου έγινε πράγματι στα τέλη Δεκεμβρίου και δεν υπήρξε η ρύθμιση της ημερομηνίας αυτής προσπάθεια εναρμονίσεως με εορτή ηλιακού θεού ή με το χειμερινό ηλιοστάσιο, όπως δέχονται συγκρητιστές θρησκειολόγοι και πλανηθέντες Ορθόδοξοι.
 «A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple. The Daily Sacrifice Cannot Begin Until the Gates are Open» (http://www.templeinstitute.org/day_in_life/gates_open.htm): «The act of opening the Sanctuary gates has great significance, for the morning tamid sacrifice cannot be slaughtered and prepared for offering upon the altar until the gates have been opened. In fact, the priest who has been assigned to this task will not commence until he actually hears the sound of the great gates opening. For with regard to the peace offerings, the verse indicates (Lev. 3:2) "... and he shall slaughter it opposite the door of the Tent of Meeting," and the sages have derived that the same applies to every sacrifice: it must take place while the door are open, and not while they are closed, in order to fulfill the requirement of "opposite the door"».

The Shovel» (http://www.templeinstitute.org/day_in_life/shovel.htm): «It is also the turn of he who received the task of "the shovel" to now bring the shovel of coals to the inner altar within the Sanctuary for the burning of the incense. First he must take up a silver shovel and ascend to the top of the outer altar, where he will stir the coals to and fro, and take some of the burning coals into the shovel».

 «A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple. Throwing the Magrepha» (http://www.templeinstitute.org/day_in_life/magrepha.htm): «At this point, these two priests now continue up the twelve steps that lead to the Sanctuary building. They are preceded by two other priests - those who received the tasks of removing the residue ashes from both the inner (incense) altar, and the menorah. He whose job was the altar's ashes enters first. Using the edges of the shovel, he arranges the coals upon the altar evenly, so that the incense will burn well. He then takes up the basket which he left there earlier, prostrates himself and exits, having concluded his task».
