Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

Abraham and the Three Angels, James Jacques Joseph Tissot, Jewish Museum, New York.

When Abram prostrated himself, God spoke to him:

"My covenant with you is this:
you are to become the father of a host of nations.
No longer shall you be called Abram;
your name shall be Abraham,
for I am making you the father of a host of nations.

Genesis 17:3-4

The Pharisees Question Jesus, James Jacques Joseph Tissot, Brooklyn Museum.

So the Jews said to him,

"You are not yet fifty years old and you have seen Abraham?"
Jesus said to them, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
before Abraham came to be, I AM."
So they picked up stones to throw at him;
but Jesus hid and went out of the temple area.

John 8:57-59
