Friday, April 3, 33 AD at 3 PM is considered to be the most likely time of death for Jesus. While we don’t mark the day as a special feast day in the liturgy, how can we help but notice, and give our thanks? For more information on how the date was set, visit

Also Google eclipses (lunar and solar) on April 3, 33 AD (14th of Nissan).

    Is the date of death based on the Julian calendar which was in effect at that time, or the Gregorian calendar introduced by Pope Gregory XIII in October 1582?

    Good question, Christian, but I don’t know any more than what Jimmy Akin published in the National Catholic Register. Apparently it is part of a more detailed article, to which I don’t have access. But I came across his article when others quoted him.
