The Date of Jesus’ Crucifixion


In the comments to the Holy Week passages/chronology I’ve posted, some have questioned the day of the week Jesus was crucified.

For those who have an ESV Study Bible and/or online access, here is Andreas Köstenberger’s helpful essay on “The Date of Jesus’ Crucifixion.”

Köstenberger shows that Jesus was crucified on Friday, Nisan 14 (the Day of Preparation), in A.D. 30 or 33.

He also argues that the evidence strongly favors the year of 33.
