Ed Babinski writes the blog Edward T. Babinski.
In his essay, Ed correctly demonstrates how Jesus and the New Testament writers believed and taught that the Second Coming would occur within the generation in which they lived. In other words, Christ did not predict that the coming of the kingdom of God could occur in our lifetime today – or in any other lifetime except the lifetime of the disciples about whom we read in the New Testament.
Ed only goes astray when, at the end, he concludes from this that Jesus must have been wrong. On the contrary, Jesus was right. We have simply misunderstood what He was teaching us to expect. Alas, it isn’t the only case we have misunderstood something Jesus was teaching.
Regarding the nature of the Second Coming (that is, what we were taught to expect), I explain in a page at Jesus Christ Has Already Come Again, and in a book at Whatever Became of Jesus Christ? For an explanation of intermediate length, see my review of the eighth chapter of Thom Stark’s The Human Faces of God.
