Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this presentation, Steve Gregg discusses the terminology used in Matthew 24, particularly the phrase "this generation will not pass away until things are fulfilled." He explains that this type of language is common in Semitic Hebrew expressions and cites Daniel 9:26-27 as an example of dual fulfillment expected in prophecy. Gregg also references Eusebius' warning to Christians in Jerusalem before the Roman armies destroyed the city and discusses the significance of the reference to "land" as Israel in Luke's version. Overall, Gregg provides a thought-provoking analysis of apocalyptic language and its contextual meanings.
