The Truth Behind B.C. and A.D.    



  By: Dr. Jake Jacobs
   Published : December 28, 2017


In my classroom when I write down a year, I purposely put A.D. at the end. Most of my students throughout my 30 years of teaching have mistakenly believed that A.D. means "After Death" or after the death of Jesus Christ. Actually A.D. stands for anno Domini, which is Medieval Latin meaning "in the year of the Lord."  Anno Domini is the shortened form of the phrase "anno Domini nostri Jesu Christi,” which translates to "in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This dating system was developed in 525 A.D. by Christian monk Dionysius and was used to number the years of both the Gregorian and the Christianized Julian calendars. A.D. is essentially a declaration by Western-Christian civilization to the world that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is Lord or God of creation and time-space reality.

The American Revolution was predicated upon the exact opposite of the bloody-militant-atheistic French, Russian, Chinese, Cuban, Korean Socialist revolutions. Our Revolution of 1776 declared that our life and our liberty derives from our Creator, the Supreme Judge of the World. While our wise Founders did not deny the importance of reason, rational thinking, and using our minds well, our Founders always acknowledged that man's mind, man's reason was a gift from God Almighty, Jesus Christ and should be used to advance life, liberty, equality and justice for all.
