From the Paper:"When the prophet Malachi surrendered his pen, the curtain closed on the Old Testament, and it would be four hundred years before the Messianic ascension would be recorded in the annals of the apostolic books. In the four silent centuries preceding the New Testament, the historical fabric was considerably altered. By the first century B.C., Rome governed the world, Greek influence was prevalent in language and culture, and Jewish tradition dominated the religious assembly in Israel. To understand and appreciate the impact of Christ's miraculous advent in these times, one must first reflect on the political, social, cultural, and religious tones that reverberate throughout the books of the New Testament."
