Thanks for you note to us here at TruthBook.com, a website dedicated
to Jesus in The Urantia Book. You asked: When did Jesus die? There are
a lot of opinions but is there a date?
The Urantia Book reveals the day, date, and time of Jesus' death as:
Friday April 7, 30 A.D, just before 3pm
For the most complete understanding of the tragic last day of
Jesus' life, please start at: (the morning of April 7, 30,
AD), the time of Jesus' trial before Pilate, and read through until
the end of Paper 187, where we read:
187:5.5 It was just before three o'clock when
Jesus, with a loud voice, cried out, "It is finished! Father, into your
hands I commend my spirit." And when he had thus spoken, he bowed his
head and gave up the life struggle. When the Roman centurion saw how
Jesus died, he smote his breast and said: "This was indeed a righteous
man; truly he must have been a Son of God." And from that hour he began
to believe in Jesus.
Through The Urantia Book, a revelation given to us from celestial
government, we can now appreciate fully the complete life and teachings
of Jesus. This account is taken from records that were faithfully
preserved for centuries by celestial eyewitnesses who were actually
present during those times, waiting for the day when the real life of
Jesus could be once again presented to the world, free from faulty
perceptions or incompleteness of fact.
How can we be so sure? Throughout The Urantia Book's account of
the Master's life, we are given not only dates, but corresponding days
of the week. The book was given to us complete in 1955, a time well
before the advent of computers. Even at that time, these days and dates
could not have been corroborated, but now they have been corroborated
and proven through computer science.
Please see this very interesting article, which
explains how this has been done, including more information on the date
of the crucifixion.
In the opinion of many, this sort of date/day analysis is further
proof that The Urantia Book is indeed, a true and accurate narration of
Thanks so much for writing, and I hope that this may inspire you to
look further into The Urantia Book, and the Life and Teachings of Jesus.
