it is a tree of life."

"This being so, then the words relating to a personal return of Jesus

 

are to be taken as pointing to the Destruction of Jerusalem

Then shall they see the sign of the Son of man, &c.  Not any visible appearance of Christ, or of the cross in the clouds [as some have imagined,] but whereas the Jews would not own Christ before for the Son of man, or for the Messias, then by the vengeance that he should execute upon them, they and all the world should see an evident sign, that he was so.  This therefore is called his coming, and his coming in his kingdom, Matth. 17.28.

Bishop Lightfoot Works - Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica (1658)

"..one of the finest intellects of the Westminster Assembly.. a strong preterist."
Kenneth Gentry

 

John Lightfoot 

 

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;

Kenneth Gentry "In fact, one of the finest intellects of the Westminster Assembly was a strong preterist: John Lightfoot."  

 

 


 

C S Lewis

“Say what you like,” we shall be told, “the apocalyptic beliefs of the first Christians have been proved to be false. It is clear from the New Testament that they all expected the Second Coming in their own lifetime. And, worse still, they had a reason, and one which you will find very embarrassing. Their Master had told them so. He shared, and indeed created, their delusion. He said in so many words, ‘this generation shall not pass till all these things be done.’ And he was wrong. He clearly knew no more about the end of the world than anyone else.”

 

It is certainly the most embarrassing verse in the Bible.
