Not to beat this into the ground, but "A.D." means anno domini, Latin for
"in the year of our Lord," not "after death".

A.D. stands for "after death" when He was (speculatively) 33 years old.  The
B.C. stands for "before Christ" meaning before his birth.  In this context,
time stood still during his life on earth.
