Mt 24:34 - big problem?
Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Jeshua to disciples: “Truly, I say to you, this genea will not pass away until all these things take place”
What is this generation?
If it is meant literally “generation of the disciples” - then we have a huge general problem with the time line. Except from if this had already happened when the temple came down. And we would be living in the kingdom already. And would just need to acknoledge that. Weird.
If it is meant the lineage of Disciples then we have the strange notion of “as long as we have Christians procreating Jeshuah won’t return” which would be very sad. Or is meant the lineage until we build up the 144k virgins who will die in the fight and ONLY then we will see him again?!
If it is meant “the jewish race” as some say we have two problems
- It is unlikely that Jeshua would count on the Pharisees, money-changers and the other enemies of organized jewry he despised so much for his return
- Also if it was needed to the jews to disappear BEFORE he can return… that would mean… see if you can follow my thought… you guessed it! The Austrian painter once again! We’d need to get rid of … to make Jeshua return!
