How old was Jesus when He died on the cross?

Though the exact age is unknown, tradition holds that Jesus was 33 years old when he died. Given historical contexts and data, it seems that he would have been around 33 when he was crucified and he died. The current way of noting the year (2019 AD) begins from the year of his birth (Anno Domini is Latin for “Year of the Lord”). The years prior to the Birth of Jesus are referred to as BC – Before Christ.
