The Fulness of Time

The “stoicheion” (a Greek term) are the elements from which all things derive. That would include the Higgs Boson, the so-called God particle which the wise men are so close to discovering over at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). When finally discovered and more fully understood, that little boson will go a long way toward helping us understand where we all came from.

Unless, of course, Paul knew what he was talking about.

While we were children, we were enslaved to creation’s stoicheion. But when the fulness of time had come, God sent his Son … (Gal. 4:3f)

Let me humbly rephrase the wise men who are busy breaking things and blowing stuff up over at the LHC. When we finally discover and more fully understand this Son (in contrast to that little boson), it will go a long way toward helping us understand where we all came from.

Have a blessed Nativity.
