3 - Dating the Crucifixion

by Jefferson Williams

New Testament Scholarship is in fairly good agreement on three important points surrounding the date of the crucifixion Armed with these facts, we can test the sediments. Current research is focused on refining the year estimate and determining the time of year that the seismite was formed (e.g Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall).

It should be noted that many New Testament Scholars consider the earthquake account in Matthew to be fictitious.
