Matthew 24:29 - 24:31 (Part 2)

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this talk, Steve Gregg discusses Matthew 24:29-31 and its relation to other Biblical passages. He notes that the language used in this passage is similar to that used in Jeremiah 4:27-28, where the Lord is seen as acting through armies. The phrase "this generation will not pass" is repeated twice, possibly referring to the armies of Rome. Gregg also explores the definition of the word "angels" and how it is used in the Bible, suggesting that in some instances, it may refer to human messengers. Overall, Gregg's talk provides a thoughtful analysis of the symbolism and meaning behind this often-debated passage in the Bible.
