you know aboout a.d and b.c.? well the scientists have one defintion for them but they are really time periods talking about Jesus...b.c means Before Christ and a.d. means After Death. He wasn't actually born right at the turn of b.c. to a in between period though. the people were a little off who studied it and came up with the times. He was actually born about 5 b.c. or at least that is what i have heard from people who study such things avidly

AD means Anno Domini. Which translated from the latin means "Year of our Lord". It does not mean "after death".

The current estimated date is about 4 B.C.

Jesus Christ was born around 1 B.C., but He actually appeared in the early books of the Gospel. Prophets have been telling of His coming for a long time. That is why the Muslims consider Him (Jesus) a prophet, because they don't believe He is the son of God, but He has been talked about for thousands of years. We know though that He is the Son of God because of His resurrection on Easter Sunday. (about 33 B.C.)

thank you jimbo b fro pointing out about the a.d bit. anno domini is right, and the other fella didnt have a clue.
nice one
p.s by yy u r, yy u b i c u r yy 4 me!, the gospel is the accounts of mathhew mark luke and john, and appear after jesus birth (in the bible), so this doesnt mean anything, because its not a prophet speaking its a disciple, who have been with jesus and not lived before jesus. also, the ressurection was not 33 b.c, because b.c means BEFORE CHIRST hence b.c, the two letters that before christ starts with. since christ was born, the years are a.d anno domini, year of our lord, as in how many years since jesus was born. get yur facts straight

Does it really matter when Jesus appeared? All that matters is the Jesus DID appear. from the grave. He was born miraculously, died for our sins on the cross and conquered death by rising from the grave. Maybe, we should ask ourselves "when did Jesus appear in our lives?" Because essentially that was the time that Jesus became "alive" as it were in our lives.

Christ's birth was not in the "0" year between B.C. and A.D. dates as one might assume. Christ was born in 4 B.C.! This seems a contradiction. How can Christ be born "before Christ"? Jesus could be born "before Christ" because the designations "B.C." ("before Christ") and "A.D." (Latin anno domini, "in the year of our Lord") and the calendar that goes with them did not come into existence until many centuries after Jesus was born. When the calendar was put together centuries later its originators "missed" on the true date of Christ's birth. This was discovered after the calendar had been instituted. Almost all scholars on the subject acknowledge this today.6 If Christ was born in 4 B.C. and that was the 4000th year from Adam's creation, then it should be a simple matter to calculate what year, from Adam, 1994 is. It must be remembered that when you go from "B.C." to "A.D." in calculating such dates that there is no "0" year, as the diagram shows:

Thus, for instance, there are five years between 4 B.C. and 2 A.D., not six. Therefore 1994 is 1997 years after Christ's birth and 5997 years after Adam's creation. Thus the end of of the Twentieth Century is about 6000 years from the creation of Adam. While I believe the chronology elaborated here is largely correct, part of the inspiration that God has handed to man, I cannot be dogmatic about the year of the Lord's return. The student must remember that the Lord said "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." {MAT 24:36 KJV} But notice, the Lord did not say the YEAR could not be known, just the day or the hour. Thus it is not unthinkable or unBiblical to think that the Lord might reveal the year of His return. The Lord Jesus also said that "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect'ssake those days shall be shortened." {MAT 24:22 KJV} This "shortening" seems to be a reference to the idea that there was an intended time-length for earth's history, but this originally intended ending-point will have to be "shortened"--brought nearer in time to the present--from what otherwise would have been an ending later on.  

A further element to consider here is this, in light of the fact that we are PAST year 6000 by the above calculations...There will be 4000 years to Jesus' DEATH, not His birth, and thus 2000 years from His death would make year 2000 be somewhere around the year 2030 AD

The fact that we are near the end of the Biblically-derived 6000 year chronology is simply one more evidence among many (see especially the signs Jesus mentions inn Matthew 24...) that His return is near...Hallelujah!
