Can you tell me how B.C. works?
Does it have to do with Jesus birth or His death?
Does it correspond exactly with Bible times?
While we are at it, what can you tell me about A.D?
Thank you and God Bless,
Bible Answer: As we all know, B.C. means before Christ, for example the book of ISAIAH it was mentioned there the reign of the King and uzzia's death which is
(B.C. 762) meaning uzzia died 762 year before Christ was born it is an opposit how we count years in our time for example we are now in 2004, two thousand and four years after Jesus Christ born.
A.D. means anno domini in english Year of Our Lord.
I hope it would helps.
Isaiah, The Book of
consists of prophecies delivered (ISA 1) in the reign of Uzziah (1-5), (2) of Jotham (6), (3) Ahaz (7-14:28), (4) the first half of Hezekiah's reign (14:28-35), (5) the second half of Hezekiah's reign (36-66). Thus, counting from the fourth year before Uzziah's death (B.C. 762) to the last year of Hezekiah (B.C. 698), Isaiah's ministry extended over a period of sixty-four years. He may, however, have survived Hezekiah, and may have perished in the way indicated above.
