So, assuming Joanine chronology, we must find a year whitin the reign of Tiberius, where Nisan 14 falls in a friday. And it happens that 33 AD is the best candidate, moreover, there was a lunar eclipse on that same day, which would explain some of the phenomena told in the gospel accounts.
This is obviously (as any chronology) disputed, But I find a rather ingenious calculation, and it was first proposed by no one more than Isaac Newton!
The lunar eclipse is the key in pinpointing the date of 4/3/33. John was at the foot of cross and witnessed all events in the sky that day. Peter stood afar, watching from a distance, but he too witnessed all events of the eclipse -- he covers in Acts 2:19-23, during his sermon at Pentecost.
Chinese astronomers recorded that a total lunar eclipse occurred on 4/3/33. This can be verified by running the sky backwards to 4/3/33 date ... and there we discover by computer imaging the Lunar Eclipse began shortly after noontime [Jerusalem timezone] and was TOTAL @ 3PM [the precise hour the Lord died].
At exactly 3PM ... if one were standing on the moon and looked back at earth, the Sun [representing the Son of God] was fully 'eclipsed' by the earth. Further proof of this date for death of Christ, is the Sun was centered in the Constellation Aries the Ram the Sheep] @ 3PM. It was exactly located in the center of that constellation ... precisely in the HEART of the Ram. The odds of this scientific phenomenon happening by chance are not lost upon astrononers/scientists/mathematicians [like Newton, Einstein, or any statistician].
Modern science has not only precisely identified the VERY HOUR in history of the Cross,but also has identified the dates of Annunciation and Birthdate of Jesus.
