How Old Was Jesus When He Died?

Of course, it is impossible to know for sure, how old Jesus Christ was when He died.

As the New Testament says, He was crucified and died on the cross, His body was taken to a tomb, but later on His body was not found there.

Shortly after He appeared to many people, thus it is believed that He resurrected from the dead.

Anyway, those who are asking how old was Jesus Christ when He died, should know that at the time of His death He was about 33 years old.

Christian scholars who studied the Bible and numerous other religious manuscripts tried to find out every possible info about the age of Christ.

They take reference from the times of baptizing of Jesus by John.

Christ was baptized to fulfill all righteousness, and it can be found out that such ceremony could be taken only for the men "from thirty years and upward, even to fifty years old, all who enter the service to do the work in the tent of meeting," (Num. 4:3).

It is estimated that the following events of Jesus Christ's life till He died on the cross lasted for about 3 years.

Thus, at the moment of His death, Jesus was approximately 33 years old.
