Uncovering Mysteries in the New Testament
is a series designed to demonstrate how to uncover deeper meaning and bring the New Testament to life.
Hebraic Sense of Time
Our western sense of time views time as points on a line. The past is gone and the future has not yet occurred. The only reality is in the present. However, there is another sense of time, and both are present in the biblical narrative. God created time, so God is in all aspects of time. For example, in the creation account we read that everything was complete, which will not occur until the future. Most important, we can access the future when we are one with God.
