What do you suppose was happening 2012 years ago?

Why is the date 2012 now? Because of the significance of Jesus Christ.

Or do you think 2012 years marks the date of the first role of toilet paper ever invented?

Happy new year Mondo

2.13.2. Was Jesus born in the year 0?

No.

There are two reasons for this:
- There is no year 0.
- Jesus was born before 4 BC.

The concept of a year "zero" is a modern myth (but a very popular one).
Roman numerals do not have a figure designating zero, and treating zero
as a number on an equal footing with other numbers was not common in
the 6th century when our present year reckoning was established by
Dionysius Exiguus (see section 2.13). Dionysius let the year AD 1
start one week after what he believed to be Jesus' birthday.

Therefore, AD 1 follows immediately after 1 BC with no intervening
year zero. So a person who was born in 10 BC and died in AD 10,
would have died at the age of 19, not 20.

Furthermore, Dionysius' calculations were wrong. The Gospel of
Matthew tells us that Jesus was born under the reign of king Herod the
Great, who died in 4 BC. It is likely that Jesus was actually born
around 7 BC. The date of his birth is unknown; it may or may not be 25
December.

I agree Mondo

2012 AD simply approximates when Jesus Christ lived as a mortal among our ancestors.

He was incarnated or incarcerated as a mortal man 2012 years ago for 33 years.
