How old was Jesus when he started his ministry?

Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry…Luke 3:23

            Luke said he was thirty years old which made sense because it was a Jewish custom that thirty years old was the approximate age of rabbis, and Jesus was called a rabbi.  If that’s the case, then Jesus was crucified at thirty-three years old since three Passovers happened during Jesus’ ministry and those occurred yearly.
