Your quote. I always look to present day events to shape my view of times past.
My reply. The past has shaped the present, the present shapes the future.
All the quotes etc you have posted of news is if little relevance in a short space of time. If the situation still holds in 10-20 years it will then perhaps have some relevance.

You are shaping your view of the past on present events. The way of 'Second Coming' theorists who claim current events are proof of 'vague' prophecies coming true.
However, as you say I am free to believe as I will, and so are you. Good Luck.
No LUCK needed when one deals with the TRUE HISTORICAL facts of the past, that have shaped the times we live in today. This is what I mean by I let the present help shape my views of the past, regardless of if you choose to believe it or not Trevor, I am dead on the money with my historical timeline of my man JC.

In the end, there are only two hard historical facts about Jesus of Nazareth upon which we can confidently rely: the first is that Jesus was a Jew who led a popular Jewish movement in Palestine at the beginning of the first century C.E.; the second is that Rome crucified him for doing so.
Just a matter of time now before the timeline truly comes to light.
