Was there a reason Jesus came at the time he did? The short answer is "yes" – there is nothing accidental about how the key events in the Bible timeline unfold. This is evident in Acts 41 for example: 27for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the ...

There are a few angles to answer your question from. First the Eternal Son of God, who existed before being incarnated into a baby child through a virgin can never be said to not have the Spirit for the Trinity if One God, Father, Son and Spirit. This is the basic view of God within Christianity. Second, when the Eternal Son was incarnated the human ...

Not being familiar with the term "meridian of time" I clicked on your hyperlink and read the definition given there. While there are many terms Christians use today which are not in the Bible, including "the meridian of time," I can only suggest there is a term in the Bible which tells us why Jesus came when He did. It comes from Galatians: ὅτε δὲ ἦλθεν ...

Yes the duration of Christ’s ministry was prophesied under the Old Testament to be 3.5 years 25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, g the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. ...

Galatians 3 and 4 explains how God sought to lay a foundation for the coming of the Messiah, through the Jewish Law. The Law was to make people understand the depth of their sinfulness (in that they were incapable of keeping the Law) so that they might more readily accept the cure for that sin through Jesus the Messiah (Galatians 3:22-23; Romans 3:19-20). ...

My answer on a related question covers much the same ground. I like this question better, because it is more generic, but the specifics of that answer still hold true here. Key points: God desires 1 sacrifice, and 1 sacrifice only, for all time (Heb 10) God chose to come "at the right time to die for the ungodly" (Gal 4) Too early, and people wouldn't ...

We do not know. We only know that He came at the appropriate time. Galatians 4:4-5: 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to ransom those under the law, so that we might receive adoption. From this we know the well-known facts that at the time of His coming: His mother, Mary, born of Saint ...

Why did He come when He did? Jesus came at the time when God said He would come. He was alive during the year that God said He would be. So, Jesus’ coming at the time was fulfillment of God’s promise. This prophecy is given in Daniel 9:25-26, in which 69 weeks of years (483 years) of time span from “the going forth of the command to restore and build ...

I've read through the linked definition of "Meridian of Time" several times, and I think the answer is quite simple. The question is looking at it from the wrong angle. It's like asking "why are all the sided of a square the same length?" or "why does a triangle have three sides. Looking at this portion of the article you linked to: The meridian of ...

Though this answer is based primarily on the Bible itself, it comes from a perspective outlined in the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). Human spiritual ages start pristine, then fall, and finally end in corruption and destruction In the Bible, various time periods or ages of human spiritual history are described in narrative fashion. ...

Jesus came during the time of the Romana Pax, which is a time when Rome was at peace. If he came during there was a lot of war, when people beg him to help with defense, what would he say?, because if he kills one man, even if he is evil, he will not be perfect anymore and dieing wouldn't do anything. If he didn't defend, either he wouldn't have died on the ...

As you have rightly mentioned in the comments, Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit and so was John the baptist. They were filled with the Holy Spirit from their mothers' womb Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy ...

It would be awesome, but there is no global Catholic Mass timetable. for the united states, MassTimes.org is the usual best bet, with going to a particular diocese' website and hoping that they have links parishes you want. Lots of parishes post their bulletins to SeekAndFind.com so you can build a list of mass times from that. But that's way, way, way to ...
