What is the meaning of Mark 1:15 in light of Matthew 6:10?
...time is fulfilled... Mark 1:15
In Daniel's '70 Weeks' prophecy and in particular Dan 9:25, the 7 weeks and 62 weeks, amounting to 69 weeks (483 years), was to end with the 'death' of Christ. See the following extract from a previous answer of mine:-
......."So you are to KNOW and DISCERN that from the issuing of a decree to RESTORE and REBUILD Jerusalem (NOT the Temple, that was the earlier decree of Cyrus, the Persian) until MESSIAH the Prince (RULER), there will be SEVEN weeks and SIXTY-TWO weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress."
.....these were to be weeks of (360 day) years...483 years (69 x 7 years, 1 x 7 years shy of the full 490 years), 173,880 days, to be more precise. If this number was to be divided by regular days in a year i.e. 365.2422 one would arrive (after rounding) to 476 years only, whereas 483 is to be the all important (prophetic) number. Let me explain: The angel Gabriel, appearing to Daniel as if a "man", informs Daniel that he is to KNOW and DISCERN the relevant decree, to RESTORE and REBUILD Jerusalem, leading to the MESSIAH. The question should be: "Are we talking, birth; beginning of ministry; death; or even ascension??? Let me give you a clue and it's to do with that number 483.
The most popular consensus, among many a theologian, as to which decree (involving Israel) starts the countdown to the MESSIAH, is the first decree of ARTAXERXES I of Persia, in 458/7 BC (7th regnal year), which involved the Jewish priest Ezra. BUT, they use the modern 365.2422 year and base their calculations on an erroneous 27 AD baptism and 31 AD death of Jesus, instead of the 29 AD and 33 AD truth. See: "7 clues tell us precisely when Jesus died..." https://www.ncregister.com/blog/jimmy-akin/when-precisely-did-jesus-die-the-year-month-day-and-hour-revealed
If on the other hand, we take the second decree of ARTAXERXES I, the less popular consensus, which was in 445/4 BC (20th regnal year), which involved the Jewish leader, Nehemiah, rather than Ezra, this is the ONLY decree, especially when taken from the Spring of 444 BC - when using the, more relevant to the time, (360 day) year - that can survive the math. Artaxerxes' first regnal year started in the Spring of 464 BC (20 years before 444 BC), even though his father XERXES died in August of 465 BC. This was due to the murderer of Xerxes, i.e. Artabanus (one of the king's ministers) usurping the throne, for apparently 7 months, before Artaxerxes killed him.
NOW, if we count down 483 (360 day) years (remember the "0" year), or 173,880 days, from the Spring of 444 BC, we come to the Spring of 33 AD, the proven season and year of Christ's "DEATH", not baptism.......
When Jesus was talking here in Mark 1:15, he was at the beginning of his ministry, half way through the 69th week. At the end of the 69th week, Jesus was to be crucified, and after 3 days and 3 nights be resurrected, then after several ethereal appearances to his disciples, and others, ascend to sit at the right hand of God, to begin his Kingdom rule....albeit in heaven only, NOT yet on earth. Compare the following verses from the NASB:-
...But when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth His son, born of a woman, born under the Law...
...with a view to administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth...
1 Tim 2:6
...who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time...
...but at the proper time manifested, even His word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God...
In contrast to Mark, Jesus is talking again, later on in his ministry, giving advice on how one should pray.
When Jesus tells his disciples to pray for God's kingdom to come, they are also to request that God's 'will' be done on earth. In other words, they were to ask for God's kingdom to come on earth.... AS IT SOON WILL BE (at hand) IN HEAVEN.
