If you earned $180,000 every day from the day Jesus Christ was born, you would still not be as rich as Jeff Bezos.

As of 2020, it would take about 76 more years if one was to earn $180,000 each day since Jesus was born to add up to Jeff Bezos' current net worth.

According to the Forbes article dated 2 May 2020, the world's richest person is Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos whose net worth is estimated to be around $138.2 billion.

As of 5 March 2020, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, his net worth is estimated to be $140 billion.

There is consensus among New Testament scholars of the Biblical Archaeology Society, that Jesus was born in the 4th Century BC or before because King Herod the Great died in the 4th Century BC and he played a major role in the narrative of Jesus' birth as per the gospel of Matthew 2 in the Bible. However, there is no officially established year of birth of Jesus Christ.

Considering the 4 Century BC to be the birth year of Jesus Christ, the calculation is as follows:

The number of total years to earn as much as Jeff Bezos' net worth:

$138,000,000,000 ÷ 180,000 = 766,666 days (about 2,100 years)

The remaining years from the current year (2020):

2100 - (4 + 2020) = 76 years.

It can be proved that if one were to earn $180,000 a day since Jesus was born, one would still be 76 years shy of earning as much as Jeff Bezos' net worth in early May 2020.
