What was the date of Jesus's resurrection?

Recent astronomical research uses the contrast between the synoptic date of Jesus' last Passover, on the one hand, and John's date of the subsequent "Jewish Passover," on the other, to propose that Jesus' Last Supper occurred on Wednesday, 1 April AD 33, and the crucifixion occurred on Friday, 3 April AD 33, and the Resurrection occurred on Saturday, 4 April AD 33..

When did Jesus die in CE?

AD 33, April 3rd Humphreys and Waddington propose a scenario in which Jesus was crucified and died at 3 p.m. on April 3, AD 33, followed by a red partial lunar eclipse at moonrise at 6.20 p.m., which the Jewish populace witnessed, and Peter recalls this occurrence when proclaiming the resurrection to the Jews (Acts of the Apostles 2:14-21). The date is based on an analysis of the lunar eclipses that occurred between AD 30 and 36.

April 3rd is also the day that most historians agree that Nero killed himself in order to avoid being murdered by his own people. The year is AD 68.

These events took place more than 1,900 years ago. I'm not sure how this information impacts Jesus' death, but it's interesting none the less.

Here are some other dates that have been proposed for Jesus' crucifixion: March 25th, AD 30; April 5th, 31C; April 19th, 29C; April 23rd, 27C; May 10th, 34C; May 20th, 32C; June 4th, 30C; July 2nd, 6C; August 15th, 6C; October 16th, 24C; November 11th, 14C; December 21st, 22C; January 1st, 0C.

The reason these dates get proposed so often is because they fall on days of the month or week when there were no major holidays in the Roman calendar.

What was the date of the crucifixion of Jesus?

We know from that day (April 12) that Jesus was brought before the Roman governor, Pilate, and subsequently before Herod the king, and then returned to Pilate, who issued the order to crucify Jesus (Matthew 27:26). The Jews were supposed to commemorate the Passover Paschal on the day of Christ's crucifixion... but they missed it by a day.

The trial of Jesus before Pontius Pilate is described in detail in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. The precise location of this trial is not known with certainty, but it probably took place in one of the courts of the Fortress of Caesar in Jerusalem. This would have been within sight of the temple area and the site where Jesus was crucified.

It is estimated that Jesus spent about three hours in the court of Pilate waiting for him to decide what to do with his case. During this time, he was flogged and then handed over to be crucified. He died at approximately 3 p.m., which was during the Jewish Sabbath, so he was buried on the evening of the same day. The women who had cared for him after his arrest went to the tomb early on the morning of the following day (see John 20:1-18).

The New Testament does not give a specific date for the passover meal, but estimates range from April 15 to April 30.
