The 1st century AD was the century that lasted from AD 1 to AD 100.

Events of the 1st centuryEdit

The following chronology uses traditional dates; 30 and 28 are also suggested as a date for these events, and are currently considered the likely dates.

  • Pontius Pilate is recalled to Rome after putting down a Samaritan uprising, 36 AD
  • Herod Antipas is remarried. This angers his first father-in-law, Aretas de Nabatene, who demolishes Herod militarily. Antipas calls for help from Tiberius. However, Tiberius ignores the request, as his governor of Syria, Vitellius, is reticent to support Herod. According to Josephus, Herod's defeat was popularly believed to be divine punishment for his execution of John the Baptist, 36 AD
  • Marcellus is put in charge of affairs in Iudaea Province. It is unclear whether or not he was ever officially a prefect or procurator. Herod Agrippa also had an ambition to rule Iudaea, although the Romans didn't officially recognize this until 41 AD. 36 AD
  • The Roman Senate annuls Tiberius' will and proclaims Caligula Roman Emperor, March 18, 37 AD
  • Saint Peter founds the Syrian Orthodox Church. (traditional date), 37 AD
  • Probable year of the conversion of the Pharisee Saul of Tarsus to Christianity after a vision. After 39 AD he is recognized as Saint Paul, 37 AD
  • Apion heads a deputation to Roman Emperor Caligula to complain about the Jews in Alexandria, 38 AD
  • Anti-Jewish riot breaks out in Alexandria during a visit by Herod Agrippa I: the mob wants to place statues of Caligula in every synagogue. The Jews consider this to be a form of idolatry, 38 AD
  • Stachys the Apostle (one of the 70) becomes the second patriarch of Constantinople, following the apostle Andrew (one of the 12), 38 AD
  • King Agrippa I of Iudaea, is recalled to Rome, 39 AD
  • Philo of Alexandria, a Hellenized Jewish philosopher who interpreted Jewish Scriptures through the lens of Stoic philosophy, leads a Jewish delegation to Rome to protest the anti-Jewish conditions in Alexandria, 39 AD
  • Roman emperor Caligula orders that a statue of himself be placed in the temple in Jerusalem. A similar order in Alexandria the previous year had led to riots. The governor of Syria, Publius Petronius, who is responsible for erecting the statue, faces mass demonstrations by Jews of the region and manages to delay construction of the statue until the death of Caligula on January 24, 41, 39 AD
The Roman Emperors were considered to be gods, and thus their statues served as idols. This, of course, was considered blasphemous to Judaism and Christianity alike. Emperors Augustus and his successor Tiberius tolerated Judaism and other ancient religions in the Eastern empire; however, Caligula was less respectful.
