If it is right that the universe is expanding, in time and space, from an explosive moment to which it will one day return, then it is clear that that moment does not lie at the earliest chronological moment. Rather, the earliest chronological moment is simply the furthest point from the epicentre in a direction opposite to where we find ourselves.
I would suggest that the moment at the centre of the universe is the event of God stepping into his creation as part of creation: the incarnation. Everything ripples out from this moment, from our limited perspective ‘before’ and ‘since’...but also outward in every direction, in every dimension, as Christ fills all in all in him, to whom all will one day return...
