    Ok so this has had Me thinking for the last few days...............
    We all know that the years before Christ is known as BC and AD is know as the years after Christ, right. So what would the years be called during the time of His life? If they existed at all:eek: :ignore: Flame on..............

    Anno Domini... In the year of our lord. So it pretty much covers the years from his birth until, well, pretty much forever after that....
