"Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." This charge could be summarized by saying, "If Jesus is coming back, what’s taking Him so long?"


This is a question that has been asked not only by skeptics, but by believers who have assumed that Jesus would return very quickly. It seems that some of Jesus’ contemporaries thought He would return within their lifetimes.


That idea has been with us throughout history, it seems. Christopher Columbus thought that his discoveries were part of God’s plan for the end times, since he followed Augustine in thinking that the world would come to an end 7,000 years after its beginning, which by the reckoning in Columbus’ time meant that there were only 155 years left!
