Bible Question:

I have been researching theological articles recently and keep coming across the abbreviations C.E. and B.C.E. I have the notion that they represent a time after the death of Jesus, but would like to know some more detail. Many thanks.

Bible Answer:

These two abbreviations are being used by secularists to replace B.C and A.D. The abbreviation B.C.E. means “Before the Common Era” and C.E. means “Common Era.” The expression B.C. is the abbreviation for “before Christ.” “A.D.” – “Anno Domini” – is Latin and means “in the year of Our Lord.”


There is a strong move in the United States and in our world to eliminate Christianity from pubic discourse and public life. But other religions are considered to be acceptable. The end times are coming. Come quickly Lord Jesus.
