The common calendar we all use is the "Common Era" (CE) calendar, known earlier as A.D. (for "Anno Domini") was instituted in about the year 527 A.D. by the Roman abbot Dionysius Exiguus, However, the New Year starts on 1 January, a whole week after the presumed day of birth of Jesus Christ (Christmas, 25 Dec.). So, when exactly was Jesus born (year) ? What date of birth (25 Dec. ????) would his passport show ? A report will follow in my next blog entry. In the meantime, if you have any inputs, please let me know.
