Determining the Year of the Crucifixion of Jesus



Regarding  the following Time Tables

We must keep in mind that, considering the limited scientific means at the time of the birth of Jesus, the exact moment of the Equinox could not be ascertained with hour and minutes precision. That is why we have considered an "alternative" 1st of Aviv which is reflected in Table 2 for some of the years. This gives credibility to the possibility of an alternative Crucifixion date of 29 D.C.
