Jesus’ birth changed how we keep track of time

Have you ever wondered why we count the years as we do?

Why is this the 21st Century? How come our calendars number years in the 2000s?

Marking the date is something we all do. But seldom do we think about or even know that the reason our years are numbered as they are is because of Jesus' birth at Christmas.

In this short video, Scott gives a quick explanation on the reason behind our calendar, and how Jesus Christ is at the centre of time and history as we know it.
