Jesus Time
In Response To: Re: Torah Time ()

If you're looking for the Jesus who was (supposedly) crucified in the 30's A.D., then Aristobulus III is your man. However it is also true that "Jesus" like "Moses" was a role that was played by more than one person. And in the case of Aristobulus, he had authorized Herodian doubles in that role, as well as rivals. It's really not possible to understand the character of Jesus without understanding the dynamics of royal politics in the ancient world, but fortunately that is now within reach.

I haven't seen a source that indicates Aristobulus died circa 35 A.D. Please share that with us. I have seen confusion between Aristobulus III and his son Aristobulus IV who was king in Armenia after him.
