Worth repeating

"The Bible does not begin with John 3:16 but Genesis 1:1. What occurs between is the patience of God as He lays the foundation and an edifice of understanding that corresponds to what is there – a worldview. And when the prep is complete – at the right time – God sent his son to die under the Law."
- and -
"God's preparation was a long time; Jesus came at the right time. Why can we not do what God did, and prepare people as he did, and establish his categories, and show men what they do not know. What we would get would be disciples and not merely converts."

David Wells, "Preaching the Cross in the Modern World," Founder's Conference 2007, as reported by Frank Turk of Pyromaniacs
