43 “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. 44 Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”Then, in Matthew 23 Jesus clearly expresses the condemnation of that generation of Israelites. Not only did they have their own wicked practices and traditions, but they were the heirs to all sorts of wickedness from their ancestors. The time had come; the judgment promised since the time of Moses was going to fall on this very generation (23:36). They would seal their fate by rejecting Jesus.
45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus’ parables, they knew he was talking about them. 46 They looked for a way to arrest him, but they were afraid of the crowd because the people held that he was a prophet.
Romans 13:11 The hour to awaken... salvation nearer now than when we first believedWhen the Bible speaks of Jesus' “second coming” it is referring to his return to bring salvation/vindication to his followers and to bring judgment to Israel. This happened in 70 AD, when the Romans destroyed the city of Israel. The destruction was so complete, the temple literally had not a single stone on another according to one contemporary historian. What Jesus has predicted in Matthew 24 had literally taken place, even down to such a detail!
