Through a brief investigation of the parable of the Nobleman in Luke 19, we demonstrate once again the reality of a first century second coming of Christ in fulfillment of Mathew 16:27-28. The coming of the Son of Man in Mathew 16:27-28 (and Daniel 7) takes place when “the saints take possession of the kingdom”. But in Luke 19, the saints take possession of the kingdom at the second coming of Christ – the return of the Nobleman from the far country to judge and destroy his enemies. Therefore, the coming of the Son of Man when the saints take possession of the kingdom in Mathew 16:27-28 was the second coming of Christ, which must have been fulfilled in the lifetime of Jesus’ first disciples…. “there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom”.
