Jesus, as described in the New Testament, was most likely crucified on Friday April 3, 33 A.D.
The latest investigation, reported in the journal International Geology Review, focused on earthquake activity at the Dead Sea, located 13 miles from Jerusalem. The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27, mentions that an earthquake coincided with the crucifixion:
“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open.”
Along with other evidence that narrows down the time frame, a handful of possible dates result, with Friday April 3, 33 A.D. being the best match, according to the researchers.
Tip: Strange Times
Uhmmm… The primary problem with this whole scenario is that they rely on a literal interpretation of the Bible. The whole thing is a bit of “house of cards” after that. I’m not buying this at all.
