Date in the late 50s CE

The precise time when this letter was written is not mentioned in the epistle, but it was obviously written when the collection for Jerusalem had been assembled and Paul was about to go to Jerusalem to minister to the saints there.  This would have been at the close of his second visit to Greece, during the winter.  The majority of scholars writing on Romans propose that this letter was written in late 55 CE, 56 CE, or early 57 CE. Thus, the date range was between years 55 CE and 58 CE, about twenty-five years after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Can you remember what happened a little over twenty-five years ago?
