27 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.  -  Matthew 16:27-28

@0:42: I will admit that some alarm bells are going off in my head. Let's allow Mr Preston some time to finish his talk...


@0:52: I would have to check to verify this. To me it seem a very simple thing to say and then not proceed to prove. I certainly believe that Christ enjoys wedding themes. But that doesn't mean it points forward to the one great wedding between Christ and the church (Eph 5:27).


@1:45-3:55: I agree that this parable is about the utter rejection of Israel. I'll even agree that its major fulfillment is found with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. 


I currently am in full agreement with Mr Preston. I will say I am concerned if the application will become that there isn't a future for the bride of Christ. But I can agree that a majority of Christ's speech refers to the rejection of Israel for unfaithfulness and the "acceptance" of the gospel church. But what I would say is that God's bride has not truly changed and there hasn't been a "new wedding"...instead it is language to describe Israel's inability to be faithful in marriage.
