The video was very well produced, but it's very tedious because it takes too long to get to the point and repeats a lot of stuff that is common knowledge. The first substantive statement came at 17:30 minutes when he asserted that Paul was asserting that the Jews knew that Christ was Messiah because "the stars told them." He based this on this passage:

Romans 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law [God's Word] for righteousness to every one that believeth. 5 ¶ For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law [God's Word], That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. 6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise [in God's Word], Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it [in God's Word]? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture [God's Word] saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 ¶ How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher [of God's Word]? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written [in God's Word], How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias [in God's Word] saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. 19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses [in God's Word] saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. 20 But Esaias [in God's Word] is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. 21 ¶ But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people. So the IMMEDIATE CONTEXT of Paul's quote is "the word of God." This is what he was talking about when he said "faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world."
Is there any evidence Paul thought that the "stars" informed the Jews that Christ had come? No. There is not a single verse in the entire corpus of Paul's writings that confirm his interpretation of that verse. And worse, it brings up the fact that Paul appears to have been ignorant of the Gospel story about the star of Bethlehem, just as he shows no knowledge of the virgin birth, the empty tomb, or any of the facts of the life of Christ reported in the Gospels.
I listened to the whole video. I can see why you might think it is significant since you are inclined to believe, but I don't see anything objectively verifiable that would convince a rational skeptic. From everything I know, AD 33 was too late for the crucifixion. Numerology and astrology cannot trump solid historical facts.
All the best,
