Matthew 16:27-28 - Don Preston Review #36

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.

This video comes in at like 13 minutes. So buckle down. 

@2:00: This is an important discussion of language here. "The Day of the LORD" is a crucial term in Old Testament literature. A full and faithful study of this term would help the church understand how Christ's judgment on Israel is a continuation of this idea. I also think it will help the church understand that there is still one remaining for the church.

@4:45: This is another very interesting passage from Isaiah. The language used here is very vivid and direct in its application of God's presence against Assyria. Isaiah 31:4 is another great passage to defend the practicality of this simple language. It isn't hard to know and recognize the meaning of these texts.

@10:10: This is one of my father's favorite Bible stories. In hindsight, it is funny how much of an eschatological impact it has. So next time you teach this story to your kids remember that it teaches preterism! :-)
