THIS GENERATION WILL NOT PASS AWAY
The Lord Jesus taught that His second coming will be sudden and unexpected. But although it will be sudden and unexpected, there will be signs pointing to His coming. All sorts of events will take place leading up to His coming. We saw what these events will be in previous lessons. Then Jesus goes on to say this puzzling sentence in Matthew 24:34.
Matthew 24:34. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.
‘This generation will not pass away until all these things have happened.’ This has been a very difficult verse for Christians to interpret. When you read commentaries, you see that the main difficulty lies in this word ‘generation.’ What does this ‘generation’ mean? This generation will not pass away until all these things take place. This will be the subject of our study.
