When Was Jesus Crucified Simply Look At The Earth

Researchers are claiming to have discovered the exact date Jesus was crucified, according to a new geological study released this week. The study, published in "International Geology Review", suggests Christ was crucified Friday, April 3rd, in the year 33. Geologist Jefferson Williams says the day and date of the crucifixion are known with a fair degree of precision because of Roman records, but the year has always been in question because of a change in the calendar. To uncover the year, they studied seismic activity in the Dead Sea, 13 miles from Jerusalem, because the Bible says in Matthew Chapter 27 that an earthquake coincided with the death of Christ. They found evidence of a large quake in A.D. 33.
