“For Christ died for sins once and for all, a good man on behalf of sinners, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death physically, but made alive spiritually.” (1 Peter 3:18)
On what day was Jesus crucified?
Several clues from scripture lead us to the precise date (year, month, day, and hour) when Jesus died. Let’s see…
Clue #1: The High Priesthood of Caiaphas
The gospels indicate that Jesus was crucified at the instigation of the first century high priest named Caiaphas (Matthew 26:3-4, John 11:49-53). We know from other sources that he served as high priest from A.D. 18 to 36, so that puts Jesus’ death in that time frame.
