In short, they're referred to as B.C.E. and C.E.The life of Christ still divides the epochs, but the change has stoked the ire of Christians and religious leaders who see it as an attack on a social and political order that has been in place for centuries.

I always thought B.C.E. meant "Before the Christian Era", and C.E. meant "Christian Era".
