I agree with you that it would be the generation that saw the great tribulation.
But he also said THIS generation. Was that not the generation of folks then living?
When Jesus read the riot act to the rebellious Jews in Mt. 23.36 and said, “All these things shall come upon this generation.” Do you think that was the generation that were listening?
What does the word “this” mean to you?
Thanks for your response.
“this” as in, “On this day in history” or “on this day in the future” or “this generation that suffers the Great Tribulation”.
“Generation” can also mean people group or race, and it’s possible that He was referring to the Jews as a people group.
Do you believe that the things described by Jesus as the Great Tribulation have come to pass already?
