The account in Luke 2:2 mentions a tax made when Cyrenius became governor of Syria in 6-7 CE. If Jesus started preaching at age thirty and preached for three years, then he must have died around CE 40 or later. This is problematic.

The difficulties once associated with the issue of Cyrenius (whose full name was Publius Silpicius Quirinus) have been resolved by the assumption that he was twice governor of Syria. The first census mentioned by Luke occurred during this first period in office from 4BC to AD 1. As it is possible to fix the death of Herod fairly accurately due to a lunar eclipse which occurred then plus the passover date that year of March 13, it is also possible to assert that Jesus was born at least several months prior to that. This all has a bearing on the suggested date of his death.

Phlegon, as quoted by Origen referred to the darkness that occurred at the time of Jesus' death as having taken place in the 19th year of Tiberius and the fourth year of the 202nd Olympiad. This is 33 AD.

Another Answer Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

According to Wikipedia, Herod died 4BC. And if Jesus was born 4BC (hypothesis) and started preaching at age thirty and preached for three years, then Jesus must have died on 29AD or 28AD if there's no 0 (zero) AD. Or maybe Jesus was born earlier than 4BC when Herod died. However, we can narrow down the year Jesus was born by investigating the Romans historical data on when Herod ordered the "Massacre of the Innocents" or by studying the works of Josephus who abhorred Herod.

Another Answer The year that Jesus died is known. He died in the year 33. In fact, not only is 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 calendar.

Another Answer No one knows for sure. But if Jesus was thirty three years old when he was executed, then maybe we can infer if we know when he was born according to Bible narration. Herod died 4 BCE, so Jesus must have been born on or before 4 BCE. and Luke 2:2-5 says Jesus was born during the time of Cyrenius (Quirinius) was Governor of Syria. Cyrenius became governor of Syria 6CE. So Jesus must have been born 6BCE or later. So Jesus died between 29BCE and 39+CE. Or a gap span of 10+ yrs. Another Answer It is generally believed that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified in Jerusalem circa 30 A.D., but accounts vary. Most Biblical scholars would agree that Jesus was thirty three years old when he was sentenced to death by the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate, but his actual birthdate (and hence his date of execution) remain in debate. Some have listed his birth year as early as 5 B.C., others as late as 5 A.D. It may be helpful to remember that B.C. stands for "Before Christ" and A.D. stands for "Anno Dominae" in Latin, or "In the year of our lord" in English. Therefore, if Jesus was crucified at the age of thirty three, it stands to reason that the year he died would actually be 33 A.D. according to our present calendar. Changes in the calendar since that time, however, cause the ambiguity regarding the year of His birth.

Jesus died at the age of thirty three in the year 29 AD.

Another Answer The Anno Domini system was developed by a monk named Dionysius Exiguus (born in Scythia Minor) in Rome in 525, as an outcome of his work on calculating the date of Easter. 33 AD is a commonly accepted date. In this year it was Friday April 3rd.

Another Answer 33AD give or take four years. AD in English means in the year of our Lord

In the month of Nisan, (Last half of March, First half of April) on the Jewish calendar.

Another Answer The time of Christ's Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem (ie when He presented Himself King) can be known exactly: it was Saturday, April 6th, 32AD, and He was crucified on Wednesday, April 10th, 32AD. [See related links to Chuck Missler ]

Another Answer From Luke 3:1:

1 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar-when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Traconitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene- 2 during the high-priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. 3 He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 4

According to most experts, the above verses help us date the beginning of Jesus' ministry to 25-26 A.D. I lean towards 26, giving John the Baptist a 6-10 months head-start.

Add three years of Jesus' ministry and we end up at around 29 A.D. for his crucifixion. I also come to the conclusion that His baptism would have happened during Passover, with His death on the Friday of Passover three years later.

The gospels say that Jesus was crucified during the governorship of Pontius Pilate, which places it within the range 26 to 36 CE. Based on the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke), which suggest that the entire mission of Jesus lasted no more than one year, a popular estimate is that he was probably crucified in 30 CE. However, John's Gospel clearly says that the mission of Jesus lasted three years, leading to another popular estimate that places the crucifixion in 33 CE. Other less well-known estimates include 28 CE.

A difficulty with all current estimates is that the gospels speak of John the Baptist being executed early in the mission of Jesus. Since the Jewish historian, Josephus indicates that John was executed in 35 CE, it would seem that the gospel references to John the Baptist mean that Jesus could not have been crucified before 36 CE, presumably after Pontius Pilate had returned to Rome.

Many biblical students and scholars have come to the conclusion that the only year that fits best would be 31 A.D..
