And in 70 A. We have a clear statement from Messiah that the temple would be destroyed in that generation, and we have historical proof that indeed it was desolated in that generation.
Please put aside any preconceived notions of what Pastors have told you, and just look at what Scripture is proclaiming. Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. He was saying that they will kill some of the Apostles and that they would pay for it, their generation, not some future generation, as that would not make sense. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
For as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon IS HERE.
The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah IS HERE. Assuredly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation. Messiah told the High Priest who condemned Him, that he would see Messiah come in power and glory.
But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. During Pentecost, Peter admonished the Jews who witnessed the Apostles being who were filled with the Spirit and speaking the Gospel in different languages, once again pointing to the current generation:. This generation, etc. This age; this race of men.
A generation is about thirty or forty years. The destruction of Jerusalem took place about forty years after this was spoken. Till all these things, etc. Till these things shall receive a full accomplishment. Till events shall take place that shall be a complete fulfillment, if there were nothing farther intended. He does not mean to exclude here the reference to the judgment, but to say that the destruction of Jerusalem would be such as to make appropriate the words of the prediction, were there nothing beyond.
So when death was threatened to Adam, the propriety of the threatening would have been seen, and the threatening would have been fulfilled, had men suffered only temporal death. At the same time, the threatening had a fulness of meaning, that would cover also, and justify, eternal death in hell. Thus the words of Christ, describing the destruction of Jerusalem, had a fulness of signification that would meet also the events of the judgment, and whose meaning would not be filled up till the world was closed.
John probably lived to see these things come to pass; compare Matthew , with John ; and there were some rabbins alive at the time when Christ spoke these words who lived till the city was destroyed, viz. Rabban Simeon, who perished with the city; R. Jochanan ben Zaccai, who outlived it; R. Zadoch, R. Ismael, and others. See Lightfoot. Jesus was a true Prophet; everything that he foretold was literally fulfilled. For within fifty years the city was destroyed and the temple was raised, the whole country was reduced to a hideous desert, and the obstinacy of the world rose up against God.
Nay more, their rage was inflamed to exterminate the doctrine of salvation, false teachers arose to corrupt the pure gospel by their impostures, religion sustained amazing shocks, and the whole company of the godly was miserably distressed. Now though the same evils were perpetrated in uninterrupted succession for many ages afterwards, yet what Christ said was true, that, before the close of a single generation, believers would feel in reality, and by undoubted experience, the truth of his prediction; for the apostles endured the same things which we see in the present day.
And yet it was not the design of Christ to promise to his followers that their calamities would be terminated within a short time, for then he would have contradicted himself, having previously warned them that the end was not yet; but, in order to encourage them to perseverance, he expressly foretold that those things related to their own age.

William Pringle, Eerdmans, , pp. Not the generation of men in general; as if these sense was, that mankind should not cease, until the accomplishment of these things; nor the generation, or people of the Jews, who should continue to be a people, until all were fulfilled; nor the generation of Christians; as if the meaning was, that there would always be a set of Christians, or believers of Christ in the world, till all these events came to pass; but it respects that present age, or generation of men then living in it; and the sense is, that all the men of that age should not die, but some should live till all things were fulfilled; see Matt.
Lightfoot observes, many of the Jewish doctors now living, when Christ spoke these words, lived until the city was destoryed; as Rabbi Simeon, who perished with it, R. Jochanan be Zaccai, who outlived it, R. Ishmael, and others: this is a full and clear proof, that not any thing that is said before, related to the second coming of Christ, the day of judgment, and the end of the world; but that all belong to the coming of the Son of man, in the destruction of Jerusalem, and to the end of the Jewish state.
Just so it was; for the city and temple were destroyed thirty-nine or forty years after. Good job. Exodus Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison , he departed into Galilee; Matthew In Matthew 5, the Lord Jesus warns of being physically and bodily cast into hell. The only valid explanation of Matthew 5 is that Jesus is describing an actual event.

Any other reading completely destroys the text. Scores of scriptures confirm hell is a real place. There remains no other conclusion. To read otherwise, demands either willful misinterpretation or the deliberate distortion of the scriptures. Hell is a major topic in the Word of God. And it should be. Jesus preached about hell more than any other subject. The Old Testament does not overlook the place of hell. The Old Testament contains over 67 direct references to hell. The Old Testament includes some of the clearest and most horrifying pictures of hell. Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
Psalm But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell. Proverbs Hell is just as real as heaven or the sea. In Psalms , David compares hell with heaven and the sea. Isaiah 14 describes the fall of Lucifer.

Isaiah reveals "the pit" is hell, ". As we can see, the scriptures teach a real place called hell. But the Bible does not stop there. The Lord gives careful details about the place called hell. The precise information the Lord provides dumbfounds many. They refuse to believe the simple Word of God.
Many recklessly dig through Greek and Hebrew words searching for a morsel of bread. And like Esau, they sell their birthright, the Word of God 1 Peter , for one morsel of meat. Note: Our study on the location of hell deals with the present location of hell. The Lake of Fire described in Revelation will replace the current place of hell. The Bible does not describe an unknown, mystic place of hell. The Word of God gives specific and careful details concerning hell. The Bible even provides the geographical location of hell. As the Lord reveals the location of hell, He challenges us to examine the evidence.
Not one. Every discovery of true science, history, and archeology, agree with the Word of God. The place of hell is no different. In our next chapter, we shall examine the place of hell under the skeptical microscope of verifiable science. As we study the following scriptures, I strongly encourage the reader to carefully read along in the King James Bible.
Look up the verses. Read them. They may be the most important words you will ever read. If you have a different Bible version, you will see a deliberate attack on hell.

We will examine the perversion of Hell in a later chapter. In verse 31 he says, ".
When Jesus Christ died on the cross, His soul descended into hell. To deny this fact, as many do , is to deny the scriptures.ignamant.cl/wp-includes/34/4229-localizador-de-telefonos.php
What Jesus did in hell may be open for discussion, but the fact He went there is not. In Matthew , Jesus Christ tells the apostles the geographical location where He will be after His death. Some Christians teach "the heart of the earth" signifies the grave. But Jesus is not referring to the grave.
