Is the Christian calendar we all use historically accurate? Was 1 A.D. really the first “year of the Lord”? Does the Christian era start from the true date of Our Lord’s birth?
Was Christ in fact crucified under Pontius Pilate in 33 A.D. as Christian tradition tells us? Is there any way of knowing for sure?
Most scholars answer, No. They claim that our calendar is wrong and that Christ was born at the latest in 4 B.C. They rely on the first century Jewish historian’s date for the death of Herod to reject the traditional date assigned by Dionysius the Little which the civilised world has followed ever since. But General Hugues de Nanteuil has re-examined the evidence and demonstrates overwhelmingly that it was Josephus who got his dates wrong, not the Church.
While vindicating the Christian calendar he also provides a mass of fascinating testimony to the historical truth of the Christian faith.
