How many years did Jesus live on earth?

How old was Jesus when he died?

Thanks for your question.


There are some conflicting views about the exact age of Jesus at his death.  However, I think that the answer is fairly straightforward.  Luke 3:23 tells us that Jesus was about 30 years old at the start of his ministry. The Gospel records show us that the length of his ministry was about 3 years.  Therefore, the Lord Jesus Christ would have been between 33 and 34 years old at the time of his death.
