APPENDIX B

THE DATE OF OUR LORD’S PASSION.


His passion is placed in the year A.D. 29 "by many authors, by Lactantius, Augustine, Sulpicius, Idatius, Fast. and Noris, the Catalogue Pont. Rom. apud Bucherium, by Origen, Hieronymus, and Tertullian" (Clinton, "Epitome of Chron of Rome," p. 7).

Among modern chronologists this date is accepted by Benson, Browne, Mann, Ideler, Bianchini, Sanclemonti, etc. (see "Approaching End of the Age," p. 523). - "The consular date assigned almost with one consent by the Latin fathers is the year of the two Gemini, B.C. 782, A.D. 29" (Browne’s "Ordo Smeclorum, "p. 73).

1. Tertullian. " Qae passio perfecta est sub Tiberio Caesare, coss. Rubellio Gemino at Fufio Gemino" (Adv. Jud, c. 8).

2. Lactantius. "Dominus noster Jesus Christus a Judaeis cruciatus est, . . . duobus Geminis coss." (Dc Mort. Pers., c. 2).

3. Sulpicius Severus. "Dominus crucifixus est Fufio Gemino et Rubellio Gemino coss." (Hist. Sac., ii. 40).

4. S. Augustin. "Mortuus est Christus duobus Geminis coss." (Do Civ. Dei, xviii.).

The above and other confirmatory traditional testimonies cited in Browne’s "Ordo Saeclorum," pp. 73-80, and in Jarvis’ "Chronological Introduction to the History of the Christian Church," pp. 377-387.
