Jesus’ Death Date Is Almost Certain :- The Bible tells us exactly when Jesus died on the cross. Matthew 27 specifically says that Jesus died on a Friday during Passover. There are only two Friday Passover dates that fit into the given evidence, 30 AD and 33 AD. Nisan 14 in the Jewish calendar is our modern April 3, 33 AD. Other clues, the reigns of Tiberius Caesar and Pontius Pilate, make the 33 AD date more likely.
