Matthew 16:27-28 - Don Preston Review #33

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

Note: Don Preston is a full preterist and therefore his teaching cannot receive full or blind acceptance. His many videos on YouTube are worthy of listening and interacting with in a timeline manner.

@2:06: I can understand "the same glory" that is a basic literal rendering of the text. Mr Preston is truly only adding the concept of "the same manner". I have a serious problem with the "meaning" of Christ's words being a reflection to the manner in which He will return. We'll see what Mr Preston presents before jumping to any conclusions.

@3:28: This is really his point. And with this being his only point, I'm going to have to reject it. I don't deny that Christ came that way in A.D. 70 but I can't fathom that the language "in the glory of his Father" is solely meant to illustrate this simple concept.

@7:05: I am not fully swayed by the inclusion of 2 Peter. There are plenty of Orthodox preterist who include 2 Peter 3 as being fulfilled in A.D. 70. Still, I'll need to be shown some strong arguments to accept it. Otherwise this all fits within a consistent preterist postmillennial perspective.
