The End Times

The account of Jesus being wrong about his prophecies was actually misinterpreted to mean what it literally meant but he actually meant the Destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. By the Romans.

Jesus and the end times by Dr. Brant Pitre

In the Bible Jesus says:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days… they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heavenwith power and  great glory… Amen I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things take place.(Matthew 24:30, 34)

Many believed  Jesus to be wrong in saying that and because of that they thought that Jesus in the words of Albert Schweitzer “A false Apocalyptic prophet”. Also C.S. Lewis believed it to be “the most embarrassing verse in the Bible”. They believed this because of the way David describe a false prophet (see Deut 18:19-22)

Earlier Jesus says to the disciples after they point out the temple,

“You see all these, do you not? Amen, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone uponanother, that will not be thrown down.”  As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying,“Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” (Matthew 24:1-3) The account of Jesus being wrong about his prophecies was actually misinterpreted to mean what it literally meant but he actually meant the Destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. By the Romans.
