‘Bible Unboxed’ on Why Scholars Use Common Era

Over at the YouTube channel Bible Unboxed, the channel’s host Lachlan (I don’t know his last name) goes over the history of the BC/AD system of dating and why scholars today tend to use the BCE/CE system. (This was all in light of an eye-popping tweet from historian Tom Holland who declared that would rather boil his head than use the BCE/CE system.) There’s a ton here I did not know and it’s for that reason I’m commending it to both of my readers.

If you haven’t subscribed to Bible Unboxed, go ahead and do it. I thought I had since I’ve seen their videos pop up regularly but when I checked it was clear I had not. I fixed that!
