NEW MEANING OF B.C. AND A.D.©
ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO, Peace Crusader and Echo
In the Julian and Gregorian calendars, B.C. is the abbreviation of the English words Before Christ, and A.D. is the abbreviation of the Latin words anno Domini (or in the year of our Lord). There is no year 0. The year 1 B.C. is immediately followed by A.D. 1.
The Holy Spirit revealed that Jesus Christ was crucified and died on August 17, and the year is 1 B.C. This revelation was proven to be correct. The results of the study may be found in http://www.geocities.com/peacecrusader888/crucifyidx.htm. This crucifixion information is being applied to the Aristean calendar.
The year 1 B.C. in the Julian and proleptic Gregorian calendars is designated as year 0 in the Aristean calendar. This is the reference year. The year of reckoning is not the birth of Jesus Christ but His crucifixion and death.
The A.D. years in the Julian and Gregorian calendars are
numerically the same as in the Aristean calendar. To differentiate the latter from the former,
To differentiate the B.C. years in the Julian and proleptic Gregorian calendars from the Aristean calendar, the years in the latter are designated as B.C.A. or BCA to mean Before Crucifixion (of Jesus Christ) in the Aristean calendar. The difference between the two is 1.
