On our Gregorian calendar, however, one leap day is added every 4 years—that is, 8 leap days in the 33-year period of Jesus’ life.

Hence, 33 years plus 3 days on a Mesoamerican calendar would represent the same elapsed time as 33 years minus 5 days on our Gregorian calendar.”[iv] Unassailable “Historical Facts” and Prophetic and Apostolic Statements Resulting in Contradictory Assertions BYU Archeologist Jeffrey Chadwick’s 2015 BYU Studies article entitled “Dating the Death of Jesus Christ” well illustrates why the birth and death dates of Jesus remain ambiguous and why Chadwick believes that an April 6, 1 BC birth date is impossible, even after postulating a 33 year value for the length of Jesus’ life supported by the Book of Mormon. It is a historical fact that the death of Herod the Great occurred in April of 4 BC, but the birth of Jesus occurred prior to Herod’s death (see Matt. And as demonstrated in the earlier study, Jesus’s birth cannot have occurred later than eight weeks prior to Herod’s death, meaning that the latest date Jesus can have been born was very early February of 4 BC (although I suggest it was even several weeks earlier, in December of 5 BC).”[v] The crucifixion and resurrection of Christ definitely occurred during the spring Passover celebration of the year.

These dates are dismissed by most scholars, both LDS and non-LDS, mainly because of the current historical records and data that Herod the Great died in April of 4 BC.[i] The length of Jesus’ life is one of the calculations that can lead to a conclusion that the secular, religious and calendar information on Jesus Christ’s birth and death dates were intentionally left ambiguous by the Lord and constitute a test of our faith.

I believe that recent discoveries of ancient calendars that strongly testify of Christ, His life and the religious events documented in the Holy Scriptures may help resolve this ambiguity.

2:8) and that he died on the fourth day of the thirty-fourth year (see 3 Ne. If Jesus was born on the first day of the first Nephite year (which may be implied), and if the years each had 365 days (consistent with the Egyptian and Mesoamerican calendars used before and after the Nephites), then Jesus lived 12,048 days.

If it is so certain that Herod died in April of 4 BC, and that the Savior lived 33 years, not 34 or more years, then one would conclude that there should not be any discussion anywhere about April 6 date would then have been specified by the Lord simply for the organization of the Church, nothing more, and that fact would be perfectly clear from statements from the general authorities.Bednar in his April 2014 conference address: “Today is April 6.We know by revelation that today is the actual and accurate date of the Savior’s birth.April 6 also is the day on which The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized.”[vi] Another recent example is Elder Russell M.Nelson in the December 2011 : “We commemorate the humble birth of the Savior at this time of year even though we know it did not occur in December. Both scriptural and historical evidence suggest a time in the spring of the year, near the Jewish Passover (see D&C 20:1).” Why So Bold a Declaration by Elder James E. The strongest, most unambiguous declaration by an apostle supporting April 6, 1 BC as Jesus’ birth date, which is coupled with the 33 AD death and resurrection dates, is contained in Elder James E.
