Did you ever think about how important the timing of Christ’s first coming was? Why did He come so long ago, like 2,000 years or even 3,000?
I think it’s because of the new communications technology that was around at the time. The Roman Empire was at the peak of its time, and they had taken over most of the world.
They built roads to make it easier to send messages, trade, and move people around quickly. This new technology combined with a common language made it possible for a small nation to communicate with an entire empire.
For centuries, the Roman Empire thrived thanks to its superhighways. So, Jesus’ first advent was a perfect time to use this new technology to spread the Gospel.
