Did Jesus die on Friday, April 3, 33AD ?

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 Bible is hardly science fact. It's like getting someone to pick a story book and trying to prove that the fiction is fact. It is impossible!! Forget the Bible it is a bunch of puzzle stories written by men, not the word from God... Which it should be but.. oh yeah he don't exist

bible is a collection of stories written by men to explain things when science had not come around and common sense was to the level of a 6 year old. science = evidence. example: humans evolved from apes cuz we have dna testing and we look and act lik them. religion = faith. doomsday will happen at 2012 cuz howard camping heard the word of GOD! whoops just a april fools prank x) no offense

I have no idea where this AD="After Death" assumption started, but it's endlessly obnoxious. It comes from Primary School Religious Education lessons misremembered by people who should have been either paying more attention or less, either way the confusion wouldn't have happened.

How could Jesus have dies in the year 33AD when AD stands for after death. So they are now tring to say Jesus died 33 years after he died? And the whole notion of using AD (after death) is redundant unto itself because all believers say that he 'died' on the cross but was resurected and thus Jesus is not dead. 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'.

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?

x #68. AD= Anno Domini(from Latin). Liberal Translation: AD= From the day He dyed.

In any case, Mr. Pilatus was a very little and not quite bright light who hardly finds a mention in the Roman annals of the time 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.
