A new study is believed to have pinpointed the exact date on which Jesus was thought to have died.

The date of Friday, April 3, 33AD was reached by examining earthquake activity around the Dead Sea and cross-referencing it with the Gospel of Matthew which tells of how the land was shook by an earthquake as Jesus lay dying on the cross.

Using a combination of scientific data and other clues described in the Bible the team were able to pinpoint this particular date as the best possible match.

"Jesus died on Friday, April 3, 33AD, according to an investigation which matches his death to an earthquake."

The first time I read that in this thread I thought it was a joke. But after the second time I start to worry... Please don't PM (= Post Mortem) me, lol. I don't want private messages from the 'beyond'.

what about considering the possibility that Jesus never even existed? that would be the more scientific way to do things. They cant use the sedimentary record to pinpoint an exact day, that is BS anyway, they are just assuming it was on a Friday of the week in question as told in the "ures" *Snip* ...

Phenomena that can't be reproduced in a lab are not necessarily BS. We have all kinds of unquantifiable happenings right here on our little blue planet. In fact, I would wager most of you posting on this thread are aware that there is more going on in the world than we can really measure or observe. That being said, the Bible is a book, written by mortal men to control the population en masse, not a book written by some ruthless deity and his son's friends. I think you all are correct that this "breakthrough" is a real reach.

Bottom line is, is this person trying to pin down date of death, based on this? Seriously?

where is the scientific data that Jesus "Christ" even existed in the first place? I'm sorry but a ton of conjecture about an earthquake is, to put it simply; DUMB. So because the "ure" said the earth shook, the nearest earthquake (temporally speaking) in the geological record just HAS to mark the day Jesus died? They do realize the Jesus story is total bologna right?

You're the reason why people think all Christians are morons... Jesus is just another fairy-tale to keep all the little boys and girls in their place. Duh... not to mention if you actually read the Old Testament, you'll find that only a sacrifice made on an ALTAR will the Lord accept. If Jesus wanted to make it count he would have convinced the Priests that he was in fact the son of G-d and had them sacrifice him on an ALTAR. If he had done that, ALL Jews would be CHRISTIANS and I'd be hard pressed to imagine any other religion in the near-east or western world with such a willin... [More]

That didn't stop him from killing lots of people during his time in office.

I am of the belief that Jesus had someone else die on the cross for him, since his family was rich while the laws at that time said you could buy someone to pay for your sins if the price was right. I think Jesus went on to live in a complex in Rome, with his followers and extended family, including his wife and children.
