Mat 24:30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky; and all the peoples of the land will weep as they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

I must have missed the newspaper accounts of this event.

Even the rock art edition was a low print run.

I didn't know they had dailies back then. Maybe CNN caught it.

The correct rendering is "tribes of the land will wail." The land was Israel, the tribes were the tribes of Israel. Why would anyone weep who hadn't seen Jesus face to face and didn't know who he was? Only those in Israel saw Jesus. He was sent only to them (Mat 15:24). They would weep because then they would know that they actually did Kill their messiah, prince, and prophesied king and they would recognize his face. No one else in the world would know who he was by physical feature. 0_o

If we had it on video, people wouldn't believe it. Even Josephus said there was a sword in the sky and a comet over Jerusalem for a year. He said there were chariots in the sky too. Tacitus said the same thing, and much more regarding miracles and portents. If it's unbelievable, then, it was obviously made up. At least if it doesn't fit people's definition of what they think happened.
