Well actually according to the bible there were prophets that predicted the conning of Christ, but they simply called him the messiah. And Jesus was actually supposed to have born in 4 B.C. (Not trying to start any religious debates, just telling what I learned in religious studies)
@I am Levi, I can verify since I go to a Catholic school
@Ape847, BRUH I was homeschooled and that is the only thing I studied.
@I am Levi, I am a Christian, and I completely agree
@I am Levi, I'm working on my masters in theological studies, I can tell you without a doubt that there is nothing in the bible about a prefixed date regarding when the messiah would come. Just saying, the roman calendar was completely different then. That changed when the Roman Catholic Church came into power.
@I am Levi, I'm not even religious and this is pretty interesting
@I am Levi, oh yeah. That's why Herod was throwing out all the babies, right?
@I am Levi, Christ was born 4 years before Christ!? Hahahahahaha love it
@I am Levi, wow what a waste
"What the hell is hell?"
"What year were you born" "oh i was born in 400 B.C" "oh how old are you" "im 30" "so the what year is it" "370 wait dafaq as im getting older the world is getting younger?!"
Jesus never had a last name. Christ was merely a name given to him. Derived from Christos, the Roman word got savior or messiah.
@aGuyWithAnAxe, while not really a last name as we know it, his surname would have bar-Joseph (son of). That or he would have been know by his hometown "of Nazareth"
@Finndogs, but he wasn't the son of Joseph. Joseph was his stepdad
@Finndogs, *yosef cos they didn't have the letter j back then
@A girl called Riley, I know that he isn't his dad, however in order to save Mary from shame he would have claimed Jesus as his son. Thus society at the time would have known him as Joseph's son if not his adoptive son.
@420 Guilty Spark, Joseph for the lay men, Yosef for you and me.
@Finndogs, well jesus told everyone he was the son of god tho so
@A girl called Riley, during his ministry. I have doubts he told people as a young man working as a carpenter.
*quietly uses b.c.e. and c.e.
I actually thought that because it was the only thing I was taught thanks to church class when I was younger and so I said it in my middle school class and just looked like an idiot
I don't think they said b.c., but... Haha
But B.C. Doesn't stand for before Christ
@That Dinosaur, yes it does. B.C. is "Before Christ" and B.C.E. is "Before Common Era," which is becoming more widely used in textbooks and stuff
@That Dinosaur, However AD does not mean after death like some claim AD means anno domini (“in the year of the Lord”
@Jack Meoff, AD is for non religious crazed people. Get that through your skull.
@TheWolfShark, your thinking of CE (common era).
Jesus, these people a dumbbb
I hate that I’m in random and this comment will never be seen but how about the time Christ was alive being called DC, During Christ
Acually, Romans based their years off of the founding of Rome
If we start counting back down , it'll be the same year as it was two years ago
@The forest, mind=blown
