YEARS OF AGE.

A.U.C. ROMAN RECKONING.
782

THE 18th
year of Tiberius.

  1. ZUMPT fixes Quirinus’ (Cyrenius’) First Govenorship
    as 4 B.C. to 1 B.C.  Justin Martyr thrice says that our Lord was born
    under Quirinus (Apol.1.XXXIV, p.37; XLVI, p. 46; Dial. LXXVIII, p. 195.
    Clark’s ed.).

  2. According to some, Augustus died August 19, A.D. 14. 
    Therefore if Tiberius’ co-regnancy was for two years before Augustus’ death
    his first year was 765 A.U.C. = 12 A.D.  His fifteenth year consequently
    was A.U.C. 779 = 26 A.D. = 4030 A.M. and A.C. 30.  for our Lord was
    thirty years of age when He begun His Ministry (Luke 3:23).  Clement
    of Alexandria gives the years of Augustus’ reign as being 43-46, according
    to different reckonings in his day.

  3. According to Clement of Alexandria (c. A.D. 190-220)
    "Our Lord was born in the twenty-eighth year when first the census was
    taken every fourteen years, then the next would fall in A.D. 10, and the
    succeeding one would have been due A.D.24.
