I love how you said, “seeds of Christ hidden in divinely inspired Greek philosophical thought,” because that’s how it goes, isn’t it? God is everywhere, present, and fillest all things; he is in everything. He scatters His seeds all over the world, and sometimes people pick them up, hang onto them for many years, and then finally one day realize what they had growing in their pocket all along from that seed!! <3
Truly this was the fullness of time since God knows when and how things must come together to work for our own good; if everyone wasn’t united under Roman law, the people likely wouldn’t have been able to unite through Christ. “Mystically written in the stars” is also beautiful. Even creation itself was prepared for the Son of man to come <3 Beautiful!
