Did you know the the dating system in use around the world is based on the Birth of Christ? BC to AD. Did you know the effort Emperor Constantine placed on calculating the date to celebrate Christ’s resurrection? In 325 AD, the Council of Nicea changed it from Passover in the Jewish lunar calendar to a date on the Roman solar calendar – the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. By the Middle Ages, calendar inaccuracies caused the date of Easter to migrate too early in the year and the calendar was changed again.
