In this video we demonstrate a powerful hermeneutic for interpreting “this generation” in Mathew 24:34. Jesus used the phrase “this generation” 13 times in the gospels outside the Olivet Discourses, and each and every time, that phrase referred to his first century contemporary generation. Based on this consistent biblical application of “this generation” established by Jesus himself, we must apply “this generation” in Mathew 24:34 (and it’s parallel texts) in exactly the same way. According to Jesus, “this generation” in Mathew 24:34 could only apply to his own contemporary generation, and no other. This is a powerful hermeneutic that the millennialists must begin to honour !
