Messianic Time

Some possible evidence for messianic time from “The Classical Tradition” by Gilbert Highet—

The pictures on [the Franks Casket] show six different heroic scenes from at least three very distant ages:

  • Romulus, Remus and two wolves (c. 800  B.C.?);
  • the adoration of the Wise Men (A.D. 1);
  • the capture of Jerusalem by the Romans (c. A.D. 70);
  • the story of Weland and Beadogild (c. A.D. 400?);
  • and an unknown myth, as well as an inscription about the whale itself
