While looking for some Greek pronunciation assistance, I came across this video.  Here Salman Khan gives us a good overview of the Golden Age of Greece.  I found the timeline very helpful.  Personally, I still use BC and AD, but most people insist on using BCE and CE these days.  That’s fine with me.  It all means the same thing.

  • BC = Before Christ.
  • AD = Anno Domini (In the year of our Lord).
  • BCE = Before Christ’s Empire.
  • CE = Christ’s Empire.

Don’t believe we live in Christ’s expanding empire?  Watch the video below Mr. Khan’s video.


Whine and protest if you like.  There is nothing you can do about it.  Christ wins.  The Gospel is spreading.  Might as well get used to it.
