Clue #7: “The Ninth Hour”
Matthew, Mark, and Luke each record that Jesus died about “the ninth hour” (Matthew 27:45-50, Mark 15:34-37, Luke 23:44-46).
“The ninth hour” is what we, today, would refer to as 3:00 p.m.
This allows us to narrow down the time of Jesus’ death to a very specific point in history: around 3:00 p.m on Friday, April 3, A.D. 33.
