I find it interesting that the WT is boasting about the 100 year anniversary of the kingdom in 2014, but I have never seen an explanation on how they calculate it. I know how to get to 1914 using the Bible (Ezekiel, Revelation, Daniel, Jeremiah). In fact, I know all the messy stuff behind it, such as 606 BCE, 537 BCE, mishandling of no-zero year in the calendar, 536 BCE instead of 539 BCE, etc.

What I am wondering is when was the last time the WT wrote an article in the WT magazine to explain in the weekly meeting how to calculate 1914. If this year is so important, one would expect an explanation in a regular basis, but I have not seen it yet. I know a bunch of recently baptized dubs that have no idea how to calculate 1914. I suspect I could find the explanation in the Insight books, but I want to know the last explanation in an article for the WT study. I get the feeling that the WT stopped giving those messy explanations a long time ago.

Thanks for your help
