In this comprehensive exploration, we delve into the various theories, historical evidence, and astronomical calculations that seek to shed light on the elusive date of Jesus’ crucifixion.

We begin by setting the historical context of Jesus’ life and crucifixion, drawing from the accounts recorded in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. By examining the Passover festival and other religious events during that period, we gain insight into the potential timeframe of Jesus’ death.

The sky has played a significant role in shaping historical events, and the crucifixion of Jesus is no exception. We delve into astronomical theories that propose celestial events as possible markers for the date of the crucifixion. From eclipses to comets, these astronomical phenomena have been studied to pinpoint the momentous day in history.

Beyond the Gospels, we explore ancient writings and historical references from other cultures and civilizations that mention Jesus’ crucifixion. Jewish and Roman historical accounts, as well as writings from early Christian theologians, provide additional clues to corroborate the date of Jesus’ death.

One of the major debates among scholars is whether Jesus’ crucifixion took place according to the lunar or solar calendar. We examine the intricacies of both systems and how they relate to the events surrounding Jesus’ death, shedding light on the complexities of reconciling ancient calendars with modern dating methods.

The Passover festival has been closely linked to Jesus’ crucifixion, with many scholars believing that he was crucified during this sacred Jewish event. We explore the significance of Passover in the context of Jesus’ life and death, discussing the implications of this connection for determining the exact date.
