Curiously enough, The Bible doesn't mention the precise age. Luke's gospel says that Jesus was baptized at the age of 30, and various historical documents indicate that He was crucified about 3 years later, giving the traditionally known age of 33.

To calculate the age of Jesus when He died we firstly need to clarify as much as possible about the time of his birth. The census mentioned in Luke 2 fixes Jesus' birth as an obvious starting point prior to the death in 4 BC of Herod the Great. The information in the link below helps resolve an apparent discrepancy between Luke mentioning that Cyrenius was Governor of Syria at this time and Josephus' mentioning this as being 6 AD. We now know that this was his second term and so there is no discrepancy. This would make a difference of around ten years in calculating Jesus' age at death.

The traditional age of around 33 years, as mentioned above, would therefore require a date of death in 29 AD.

The year that Jesus died is known. He died in the year 33. In fact, not only is the year known, the exact date of Nisan 14, 33 is when he died. Nisan was a month on the Jewish Lunar calender that corresponds to late March and early April on our calender. This would also correspond with his death on the cross at what we now commemorate as Easter.

Here we must remember that even though Jesus lived 33-odd years on earth, He is ageless.
Some scholars believe he was in his early 30's. There is no true answer, only speculation because the bible does not talk about him growing up as much as it describes his ministry.

The Bible never says exactly how old Jesus was when he died. However, if you study Jewish culture at the time, you will find that men could only be a rabbi (or teacher) if they were thirty years old. Add that to the number of Passover feasts he observed (they happened once a year every year) and you will find that Jesus died when he was about thirty-three years old.
