Did the Church Begin in AD 30 or 33?


Did the Church really begin in the year 30 AD rather than 33 AD and is the Gregorian Calender off by 3-4 years?


By examining various historical evidence, we can confidently conclude that Jesus was born between 3 and 2 B.C. and died in April AD 33, meaning the Church began in AD 33 as well.
