When you put time into the equation, you are moving away from Plato, and toward Aristotle and ultimately to Hegel, and to a certain branch off of Hegel, to Marx; though Hegel really is the more modern foundational source. It can all be done with Hegel.
A short note: for the most part in the last century, a Catholic thinker, theologian, philosopher, etc. had to be on written record against Hegel. This was also the way to clearly draw the line against Spinoza. It was like a litany you had to write against Hegel in order to join the club. Now what these thinkers believed privately was a different matter. Also, drawing Hegel and Spinoza within pantheism was probably also unfair to their philosophies as written.
I am aware of one book that truly addresses your question and within the parameters of your question as asked, and that is "Marx and the Bible" by Jose P Miranda.
The title to this book is rather misleading. Miranda ( this is by memory and memory can be faulty) was a priest, and a philosopher, had gotten further education at one of the prestigious "Church affiliated schools" in Rome, he studied in Germany too, he had a very good education in German philosophers and theologians such as Rudolf Bultmann (and he discusses Bultmann in the book too).
You have to get to the last one or two chapters of this book to get to your question. Here he brings in Ernst Bloch to stand for Hegel. Not Hegel exactly as written (which was more associated with internal development) but Hegel's philosophy itself developed through time. Further development after Hegel's death.
Man is the first to reach consciousness and self-consciousness out of the material based world. It is still an open question scientifically and philosophically how this occurs. Man "has philosophy" in the large Hegelian sense of the word.
Now once man has consciousness and self- consciouness (a sort of miracle from this earth, probably) then the sky is the limit even as to man's own mortality. "Miracles" can occur left and right, but not without hard work and thinking.
We can think of sand to silicon chips to computers to AI (if one believes in such a thing as AI) as a kind of miracle.
Now once man plays this part , man himself can become the enemy to himself, and this must be considered, and we could probably say that such apparently different thinkers as Adorno and Heidegger converged on this point. So we have to continue to reflect with deep thinking about also the dangers of technology (not just the benefits) and so on.
A more official biography of Jose Porfirio Miranda, in Spanish, but maybe the computer can translate this. http://cefmiranda.org/esp/biografia/
