I suppose Jesus could have been born at a different time and a different place. Let's try to imagine that and what, if anything would be different. Let's say he was born in Ponders End, Enfield, London and is now 30. He decides to stop making book shelves and begin his ministry. What car would he own? A BMW or a VW perhaps? No, because of what the Nazis did to his people in the 1930s and 1940s. How about a Fiat or a Toyota ? No, because the Italians and the Japanese supported the Nazis. And lacking a little donkey, I think he would stick to Eco transport. He starts walking around London with a sandwich board that says: "THE END IN NIGH" He decides that's not working, so he finds a few local homeless guys and shows them some street magic and they become convinced he has real magic powers. They decide to follow him around, picking up food where they can from food banks and sleeping in parks and under arches. By the light of a silvery moon or a street lamp, he tells them stories. He tells them there will be floods, earthquakes and Brexit. They gasp. He says a Dragon will harden the hearts and force through a Hard Brexit. He says from Heaven, a Golden Trump will cue the End Times. Jesus tells them that he will be put in an ice coffin for 3 days and survive. They are amazed. They continue walking around, spreading the word. He says that if they have enough faith, they will be able to say to a building, MOVE and it will move. Most believe him, although one did have doubts. Someone tells them that the local supermarket has a food donation bin. Jesus says he is hungry and asks his followers to go and get some food. A little while later, they come back and tell him the shop is closed. Why? asks Jesus. It's Sunday early closing ! He curses the shop and said.. That shop's sales will drop and cheaper EU rivals will take the business. A few weeks later, they pass the same shop again and see a sign... "We have MOVED" Here endeth the lesson.
