Signs of the return of-- nevermind
So Jesus did expect his second coming to be in the lifetimes of his disciples, as far as I know. I've read many excuses about the verses in question, some more confusing than others, but one particular comment I saw was interesting.

Essentially this person said that when Jesus said "there are some here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom," he was talking about his first arrival into heaven and not his return, his ascension, which means that his prediction was still correct because his disciples were still alive to see that.

Facepalm I... no...

There are some rather reputable scientists who think the first human to live to 1000 years has already been born. I only hope I'm alive to see the coming of this son of man.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

Ah, but you forget about the Wandering Jew, who is still alive today, and thus the prophesy may still be fulfilled.

RE: Signs of the return of-- nevermind
Really, though, that's the first time I've seen someone say that Jesus was actually predicting his ascension into heaven instead of his return, so it was accurate. Blink

I get the feeling there's a reason the more scholarly stuff I'm reading doesn't back that assertion. Laugh out load

I hope Jesus at least cleans up after he's done coming. Are there tissues in heaven?

Haha! I was looking for that reference, amazing these excuses that they'll come up with.

It's hard to return to a place you've never been.
