“Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel’” (Mark 1:14-15). Jesus began His ministry with these words announcing the Kingdom of God. The time He had in mind to be “fulfilled” was probably a reference to the prophecy in Daniel 9:24-25, where it is said that the Messiah would come 483 years from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem. The year A.D. 27 was when the 483 years specified in the prophecy would end (see “The Bible Prophesied the Exact Year the Messiah Would Appear,” page 19). The year 27 is significant because that is the year Jesus began His ministry. He began preaching the message of the Kingdom of God in Galilee. As we saw in the last chapter, the people and even Christ’s own disciples had many misconceptions about the Messiah and His mission.
