"A.D." does not stand for "after death", but for "anno Domini", which is
Latin for "in the year of our Lord.

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.
