Crucifixion Date: A Scientific Proof

One of the key events of Christianity that was widely debated for centuries was the Crucifixion because of contradictions in the Bible as well as lack of evidence in historical texts. Fortunately, with modern science and astronomy, the debate is now finally concluded!

Earlier this year just before Good Friday, I attended a most illuminating talk by Professor Colin J. Humphreys of Cambridge University on pinpointing the date of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Professor Humphreys was eloquent, engaging and most importantly, thorough and scientific in his approach:

I was deeply inspired because I now know the exact date of Christ's sacrifice for humanity: Friday, 3 April AD 33!

Though I have no access to his articles in Nature on this topic, I've found an online article that covered all his major findings here, which I believe, would greatly strengthen the historicity of Christianity. Prof Humphreys has also recently published a book on this: "The Mystery of the Last Supper: Reconstructing the Final Days of Jesus"
