Two scientists have determined that Jesus Christ was crucified at 3PM on Friday, April 3 in 33 A.D.

The exact date of the crucifixion has been debated for centuries, but British scholars Colin Humphreys and W.G. Waddington believe they have solved the mystery after an exhaustive study of the Bible, ancient calendars and astronomical conditions.

The scientists said that previously the only certainty about the date of the crucifixion was that it occurred between 26 A.D. and 36 A.D., during the 10 years Pontius Pilate was the Roman procurator of Judea. In order to pin down the exact date the two scientists reconstructed the Jewish calendar that was used at the time.

The chart for this date has a few interesting factors, but not overwhelmingly so.   The Full Moon is in Libra, opposite an Aries Sun, signifying the conflict between individuality (Aries) and partnership (Libra).  Jupiter (King) is opposed exactly by Pluto (death and power).
Anyone who is interested in an alternative view of the crucifixion story might find it interesting to read The Passover Plot.
