The Proverbs speak of those with whom we should associate (i.e., the wise).
They also have much to say about those with whom we should not associate.
Also, Jesus’ parents came to Bethlehem to register in a Roman census (Luke 2:1-4).
The Romans would have known better than to have taken such a census in the dead of winter, when temperatures often dropped below freezing and roads were in poor condition for traveling.
Then in Luke we’re told the angel appeared to Mary telling her she would conceive her Son in Elizabeth’s sixth month.
So Jesus Christ was six months younger than John the Baptist—meaning He probably would have been born in late September when Jerusalem was crowded with people coming to observe the autumn feasts.
I think it is true that our young people date too young, and that many dating situations are unwise in that they create unnecessary temptations and, even if nothing wrong takes place, a couple’s actions may give the appearance of evil.
Many of the dating and personal relationship safeguards of years gone by seem to have been cast aside.A “week” in prophecy can stand for seven years, a day for a year (Numbers ).We therefore conclude that His ministry lasted 3 ½ years, with the other 3 ½ years to be completed at some other time.Assuming that dating is appropriate under certain conditions, the next question is, “Does the Bible forbid dating an unbeliever?” I think we can all agree that the Bible forbids the Christian from marrying an unbeliever.I suspect that this would be an inferential conclusion, and thus would have to be considered a matter of personal conviction, rather than as a clear biblical prohibition.
