Dates for the New Testament – Part 2

Written by Dianna Wiebe on .

Today we are going to look at part 2 dates for the New Testament. I am opening my personal notes and sharing them with you. Unless noted, the dates I am using is coming from the book, Annals of World History by Bishop James Ussher.

BC or BCE – Before Christ or Before Common Era
AD – Latin translation “In the year of our Lord”

Part two covers the years of Jesus ministry. At Grapevine, we group Jesus’ major ministry events together so there are not many dates to pinpoint.
