    AD is Anno Domini or Year of our Lord referring to the year of Christ’s birth. The meaning of BC is Before Christ.
    BC is BEFOE CHRIST AD IS FROM LATIN ANNO DOMMINI YEAR OF OUR LORD
    The Jewish people use this BCE BEFORE THE COMMON ERA insted of BC
    they use AFTER THE COMMON ERA instead AD
    Before Christ BC
    After Christ AD
    Google it.
