Do you have a coin? What does your coin say? It has a date!
Dates show our world history timeline. The method of our dating system is a chronological marker. The first and simplest method of absolute dating is using objects with dates inscribed on them. Coins are great examples because they are associated with historical events or documents! Coins are artifacts that give tangible evidence that something happened.
Our numbering system show our dates are based on the birth of Jesus Christ. (B.C) U.S. and Latin country coins are great examples of dates that everyone understands. If we use a dating system based on the birth of Jesus, don’t you want to know more about Him?
Who is Jesus? What did Jesus teach? I like to look at Nicodemus from John 3:
Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
