If Jesus Christ was born between 6 BC and 4 BC he would have been a young child in 1 AD. He is said to have lived for 33 years. Usually 31 AD is the date given, but his death could have taken place between 30 AD and 34 AD. It was a very long time ago, but from Biblical evidence, none of the answers given would be correct. The closest answer would be 20 AD (although Jesus would only have been a teenager of 14 - 16 years old.)

Jesus Christ was born in 4BC. And lived for 33years. Hence his crucifixion was in 29AD.

It can't be BC because BC means before christ. So it will be counted as 1AD of his crucification.

I'm afraid you're somewhat incorrect in your interpretation, @Rajesh.

The AD label was devised for use with the Julian calendar in what we would now call 525 AD. It was intended to start at the date of the incarnation of Jesus Christ, which depending on who you ask was either His conception or birth; most modern Christians would state that this would be at the date of conception. More recently, historians have determined that 1 AD is not the most accurate date and that somewhere between 4 BC and 6 BC would more accurate, but the numbering system wasn't changed as this would lead to massive confusion.

In any case, it's not the date of crucifixion. The suggestion that the crucifixion occurred in 1 AD is absolutely incorrect.

It may be the result of some linguistic confusion - AD does not stand for After Death, because it's not an English acronym. It stands for "anno domini", which is Latin for "the year of Our Lord". (As you may or may not know, the English language did not exist in 525 AD; an important point in the genesis of what would become modern English was in 1066 AD, with the Norman conquest of England).

Jesus Christ was crucified in 30 AD. This is the most widely accepted year of his death.

Remember, Christmas (his birthday) is celebrated on December 25th.

But if Jesus was born in 4 BC AND lived for 33 years then why answer is 20 AD not 29 AD?

Salil said: (Jul 28, 2016)  
The answer may be 29AD.

Good explanation, Thanks. @John.

Niludeb said: (Jan 17, 2019)  
I think it may be 33AD.

BC - is Before Christ.
AD - is Christ Born (Anno Domini) means, year of our Lord.
BC x year to AD : 1 year.
say at the age of 33 years crucified; So AD 33 is Jesus crucified.
