    Did you know that from the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to
    the time of Jesus was approximately 2000yrs?
    Did you know that from the time of Jesus until present times,
    is approximately 2000yrs?

    What I will attempt to do is to compare the 2000yrs of the
    Jewish history (from the time of Jacob), with the 2000yrs of
    Christian history (from the time of Jesus), and see what
    emerges.


    Jacob - 12 sons - 70 members of his family.
    The Isrealites....
    Expressed their faith in God by....
    Observing the Sabbath,
    By the right of cicumcision,
    And by making offerings. (Animal Sacrifices).
    The Isrealites suffered for 400 yrs under Egyptians.
    At the end of this 400yrs, Moses gave 'laws' to the Isrealites,
    on which the Jewish foundation was based.
    Then began a period of approximately 400yrs, when the
    Isrealites were ruled by Judges. In this 400yr period of
    Judges, the social system was a system of feudalism, and the
    Judges played the role of, Prophet, Priest and King.
    At the end of the period of Judges, the people were crying out
    for a King. It was at this point that the Prophet Samuel
    anointed the first King of Isreal, Saul.
    Thus began a period of 'The United Kingdom of Isreal', which
    lasted for 120yrs.
    Due to Solomons failure, the Kingdom was divided into North
    (Isreal), and South (Judah), thus beginning a 400yr period of
    the divided Kingdoms of Isreal.
    At the end of this 400yr period, the Babylonians captured and
    exiled Jewish leaders within Babylon. This period of Jewish
    exile lasted for 210yrs, before their return to Jerusalem.
    From this point on, the Jewish people entered a final period of
    400yrs in preparation for the coming of the Messiah.
    Thus began the great reformation movement within Judeism. Of
    who the most noted reformer was the prophet Malachi, who urged
    the people to go back to the laws of Moses.

    ------------------------------

    Jesus - 12 Apostels - 70 Disciples
    The Christians....
    Expressed their faith in God by....
    Observing the Sabbath.
    By the right of Baptisim,
    And by their offerings. (not animal sacrifices, but Martyrs).
    The Christians suffered for 400 yrs under the Romans.
    At the end of the 400yrs, St Augustine gave the book 'The City
    of God' on which the Christian foundation was based.
    Then began a period of approximately 400yrs, when the
    Christians were ruled by Church Patriarchs. In this 400yr
    period of Church Patriarchs, the social system was a system of
    feudalism, and the Church Patriarchs played the role of,
    Prophet, Priest and to some extent King. It was at this point
    that the Pope, (Pope Leo III) anointed the first Emperor of
    Christianity, Charlemagne.
    Thus began a period of 'The United Kingdom of Christianity',
    which lasted for 120yrs.
    Due to Charlemagne's grandsons arguing among themselves, the
    Kingdom was divided into East and West. (East
    Franks; 'Germany', and West Franks; 'France'). Thus beginning
    a 400yr period of the divided Kingdom of Christianity.
    At the end of this 400yr period, the King of France captured
    and exiled The Pope (Clement V) to Avignon in Southern France.
    This period of Papel exile lasted for 210yrs, before the return
    of a single Pope to Rome.
    From this point on, the Christian people have entered a final
    period of 400yrs in preparation for the 2nd coming of the
    Messiah.
    Then began a great reformation movement within Christianity. Of
    who the most noted reformer was Martin Luther (1517), who urged
    the church to go back to the original ways of St Augustine and
    his 'City of God'.

    This sounds like it belongs in Eschatology, just MHO.
