Apologetics

Was Jesus Mistaken about an Early Second Coming?

did jesus teach he would return soon
Did Jesus Teach He would return soon?
  • Matthew 10:23
  • Matthew 16:28
  • Mark 8:38
  • Mark 14:61-62
  • 2 Peter 3:4

Skeptics claim that Jesus did teach his soon return, and that Christians like Peter scrambled to explain why it hadn’t yet occurred

did jesus get it wrong
Did Jesus Get it Wrong?
  • Peter isn’t making a hasty attempt to cover for Jesus’ error
    • There is a tension between imminence and delay in all apocalyptic literature
  • Why did Jesus speak of a great tribulation in Matthew 24:21?
  • The dual position: Jesus comes to God’s throne for enthronement, vindication and judgment in this generation, and comes to Earth at an unknown time in the future.

Did Jesus Get it Wrong?
  • NT writers distinguished between the Lord’s coming being near, and that delay is inevitable: 1 Corinthians 10:11 and 15:22-24
  • NT writers corrected misperceptions that the end had already come: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2, 1 Corinthians 15:12-20, 2 Peter 3:8-10
  • Jesus was speaking of two distinct events in Matthew 24
two distinct questions two distinct events
Two distinct questions, two distinct events
  • Matthew 24:1-4
    • When will “these things” be?
    • What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?
  • Jesus knew the answer to the first: 24:34
  • Jesus did not know the answer to the second: 24:36
  • Two different Greek words used
    • comes to God’s throne (erchomenon)
    • comes to Earth (parousia)
