That is what Luke said. And the ONLY thing Luke said on the matter as well. What comes after the pertinent verses, which I posted, have nothing to do with Cyrenius being alive (or dead) for the second census.
The first census (for taxes) was previously done during the governorship of Cyrenius over Syria and then ANOTHER DIFFERENT census (for taxes) was done right before Jesus was born. Luke does NOT make the assertion that Cyrenius was the governor when Jesus was born, in fact, Luke does just the opposite by relating the two SEPERATE censuses for the purposes of taxation.
We are through with this supposed contradiction. Anything else?
