by Alex Carmichaeledited by Matt Slick AD does not mean “After Death.” It is an abbreviation for “Anno Domini,” which is a Latin phrase meaning “in the year of our Lord,” referring to the year of Christ’s birth. So at the time of this writing, 2011 AD is intended to signify that it has been 2,011 years since Christ was born.1 Second, if you think about it logically, as was discussed in class that day, 1 BC could not be directly followed by 1 AD if AD meant “After the Death of Christ.”2 That would mean that Christ was born then He immediately died, and we know that’s not the case.It is important to note that even though the BC/AD system of dating has Christ as its central focus, it is not found in the Bible.Many Christians do not like either of these changes, but they can, of course, interpret the letter “C” in the BCE and CE designations as referring to “Christian” or “Christ’s” without taking offense in what many see as an attempt to delegitimize or eliminate Christ from the calendar.Readers of works on European history (or, indeed, newspapers and pretty much anything else) may notice there are two competing dating systems, using short abbreviations: the A. For example, 400 BCE is the same as 400 BC, and 2011 CE is the same as 2011 AD.There is another less frequent meaning in use for the “C” in the new BCE and CE designations, in that the “C” stands for “Current,” the implication being that there is yet another era still to come.

C is an abbreviation for ' Before Christ', used in the Gregorian calendar (in turn used widely around the world, including in the US, Canada and Britain) to refer to the era before the birth of Jesus Christ, the central Christian figure. which means Common Era so that they intentionally avoid using the Christian way of dating years. His dating method was based upon the date of Jesus Christ’s birth as of A. 1, even though biblical scholars believe Jesus’ birth was actually closer to 6-4 B.
