Funny Bible Quote #71

At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

~ Matthew 24:30-34, NIV


  1. Hmmm, could it be that that generation is the generation of the "fig tree", the generation that saw the rebirth of Israel in 1948? Yeah, that's it! It all comes together when you put on your Dispensationalist prophetic glasses.

  2. That is the second time the truth has been invoked. How many other time does the writer have to say "I tell you the truth"? We if that phrase is not used? Is it not the truth?

  3. @SE: My scholarly Bible says that the word for generation may also mean race, so maybe it just has to happen before the Jews disappear. Isn't it amazing how much Christian theology just makes stuff up when it comes to analyzing the Bible? Apparently the Bible is not taken as literally as fundamentalists claim.

    @Punch: Don't you know, liars always remind you they're telling the truth.
