How Old Was Jesus When He Died?

How old was Jesus when he died? In Luke 3:23, we were told Jesus was 30 years old when he began his ministry. Scholars concluded Jesus was 33 years old when he died.

Jesus Christ began his ministry between the year 26 - 30 AD at the age of 30 years according to Luke 3:23 and he ministered for 3 years.

Jesus Ministry and Ascension

Following the scholars' conclusion of 33 years at death, Jesus's ministry lasted for 3 years and came to an end in the year 29 - 33 AD.

According to Acts 1:3; Jesus ascended to heaven on the 40th day after his resurrection from the dead. And the Pentecost day (50 days from the Sabbath after passover) was 9 days ahead.

Jesus said to the disciples to wait in Jerusalem so that they can receive powers in few days, (9 days ahead) - Acts 1:4-5. Also read: Acts 1:1-9.

Power Received Confirming Date

In Acts 2:1-47, we read about how the disciples received the powers on the day of Pentecost (9 days after Jesus ascension into heaven) in the year in which the church of Christ was established - 33AD.

This, to a greater extent, confirmed that Jesus Christ was 33 years old when he died in the same year of the pentecost - 33AD.

The Bible and Jesus Age

The age of Jesus Christ was not specifically stated in the Bible. Historians and scholars came to this conclusion from written manuscript of acient scholars.

However, the age of Jesus Christ does not have anything to do with your faith in Him. Believe in the work He and His disciples have done. Read your Bible, pray to God, continue in fellowship and in breaking of bread - Lord's Supper.

Maintain your christianity and heaven is your gaol.
