Biblical Ages


There are different ages (section of time during which a person, thing, or state exist) in the bible.

Age Of The Gentiles:

This is the same age as the Church Age. Right now most of the understanding of who Jesus is and what Jesus accomplished on the cross is going to the Gentile (Non Jew). This is in part to help accomplish the blessings God promised to Abraham. "Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him" (Gen:18-18). There are however an ever increasing amount of Jewish people being granted biblical wisdom to understand their Jewish Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Since this time frame is the same as the Church Age it will also end when believers in Jesus are Raptured off of earth. However the trying times for the Jewish nation will continue to experience "The Time Of Jacob's Trouble."

Also known as the Times of the Gentiles, this biblical age consists of that long period of time extending from the destruction of Solomon's temple by the Babylonians in 586 BC until the return of the Messiah at the conclusion of the Tribulation Period. The period of time is marked by Gentile domination of Jerusalem and the Jewish people. This "trampling under foot does not preclude temporary times of Jewish sovereignty and self-government, as experienced during the times of the Hasmoneans (168-63 BC), and as we are experiencing today with the institution of the modern State of Israel.(1)

Age To Come:

This age can be a reference to the Millennial Kingdom that will start with the second coming of Christ and continue for 1000 years (Revelation 20:3).

Church Age:

There are different ages (section of time during which a person, thing, or state exist) in the bible. The Church Age referred to here began around the time of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came (See Acts Chapter 2). It will end when believers in Jesus will be raptured off of the earth and a new age will be ushered in. The Church Age is also referred to as "the present age" and is actually a continuation of the "present age" referred to sometimes in scripture.

Messianic Age:

Sometimes viewed as the period between Christ's first and second coming. Not to be confused with the Millennial Kingdom. Although it may span close to 2000 years it is also sometimes referred to as the Last Days (of human history). Some of the New Testament people thought that they may be living in the Last Days.


There are many different "ages" or set time frames in the Bible.
