Season 1: Episode 20
What Day was Jesus Crucified?
Date Aired: 04/07/2023
For centuries, historians have been trying to pinpoint the exact date of the Crucifixion, but biblical math is tricky! As Helen and Dave explain in today’s third Easter episode, the gospels aren’t in agreement on when Jesus died. Did different traditions about Jesus’s death and resurrection exist in the ancient world? Or do the different dates reflect different theological messages that the gospel authors were trying to send? As usual, we get to the bottom of it (or at least come to some moderately satisfying conclusions).
