As reported by Discovery News, Williams had intended to investigate if dust storm deposits coincide with the early first century Jerusalem region earthquake.
In an email to Huff Post, he indicated those plans were being re-evaluated.
The International Geology Review investigated an earthquake that was said to have occurred the same date as Jesus' crucifixion.
Biblical citations combined with geological research suggest the date may have been Friday April 3, 33 A. Taken alone, geological research has identified a window from 26 to 36 A. In Gospel of of Matthew, Chapter 27 says: “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
When she finally sits down to watch television and sighs: ‘this chastity sucks…’, you almost feel sorry for her…
A new study suggests that the Biblical date of Jesus' crucifixion is, in fact, possible to confirm.
Williams, Schwab, and Brauer point out that the earthquake implied in the gospel could be allegorical, referring to the earthquake that occurred sometime before or after the crucifixion.
This earthquake would have been powerful enough to break apart the sediments of Ein Gedi but not enough to have warranted "a still extant and extra-biblical historical record." “If the last possibility is true, this would mean that the report of an earthquake in the Gospel of Matthew is a type of allegory,” they write in the International Geology Review.
The guy will probably think she is crazy (however, I would be my dream to meet a girl like this, so not everyone would react the same way). Actually, I made it a new Challenge for her: public footage with double plugs too or I would consider this Deal a failure.
The Year John the Baptist’s Ministry Began Luke implies that John the Baptist began his public ministry shortly before Jesus did, and he gives us a historical reference point for when the Baptist’s ministry began: “In . “The fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar” sounds like a straightforward date, but there are some ambiguities, beginning with when one starts the calculation.
Most likely, Tiberius’s reign was counted either from the day he took office in .
We conclude that Jesus was most likely crucified on April 3, 33.
While other dates are possible, believers can take great assurance from the fact that the most important historical events in Jesus’s life, such as the crucifixion, are firmly anchored in human history.
