I’m wondering how we know that Jesus was about 33 years old when he was crucified. Thanks ahead of time for helping me with the answer to this question. :ani_help:
Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about** thirty years of age**, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,
From his ministry to his crucifixion was less than a year.
Sorry, Edwin, but there’s no definitive proof of Christ’s age.The number 33 would have signifcant symbolism since the number three denotes the Trinity and to have ‘33’ would be perfect symbolism of the Divinity of Christ.
Just a thought here, any crediable proof of this?
Actually, no. I’m not at my computer–and never have been.Wow Karl (I hope I can address you by your first name; never having been personally introduced)! I just registered a few minutes ago, posted the question that has been longest on my mind (since I was a pre-teen) and within minutes receive a reply from the founder of Catholic Answers.
As you really sitting at your computer browsing and replying at this moment?
That sounds like something I could use. Let me know when you want to sell it, Karl.Actually, no. I’m not at my computer–and never have been.
