how old was Jesus when he died? –Jesus was about 30 years old when he began his three-and-a-half-year preaching work. Jesus died on the Passover on Neesan 14, in the spring of 33 CE. If we count backward from this date, we can guess when he would have been born. Therefore, he must have been born at the beginning of the autumn season on 2 BCE.
Why is Christmas celebrated on December 25?
There is no evidence that Jesus Christ was born on 25 December, so why is Christmas celebrated on this date? The Britannica states that church leaders probably chose this date “so that it would match the date when non-Christian Romans celebrated the ‘age of the invincible sun’ at the end of winter.” According to The Encyclopedia Americana, many scholars believe that it was done so that “non-Christians who adopt Christianity may find Christianity more attractive.”
