Abomination of desolationOlivet Discourseand Second Coming In Matthew 10, when Jesus sent forth the twelve disciples, he told them: I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. Moffatt puts it "before the Son of man arrives" as if Jesus referred to this special tour of Galilee.
Jesus could overtake them. Possibly so, but it is by no means clear. Some refer it to the Transfigurationothers to the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecostothers to the Second Coming. Some hold that Matthew has put the saying in the wrong context.
Others bluntly say that Jesus was mistaken, a very serious charge to make in his instructions to these preachers. They reject to refer Matthew Such a view completely divorces the passage from its immediate and localized context, such as the fact that this was an admonition to the apostles — and not directed to a generation several millennia removed from the first century.
In the similar context of Mt Hence, the "coming of the Son of man" is probably eschatological here also. This would have been more readily understood by the disciples, who would hardly have thought to equate this "coming" with the destruction of Jerusalem in A. It is customary for eastern nations to count part of a day as a whole hour day.

Does Jesus refer to the transfiguration, the resurrection of Jesus, the great day of Pentecost, the destruction of Jerusalem, the second coming and judgment?
We do not know, only that Jesus was certain of his final victory which would be typified and symbolized in various ways. In this view, this was accomplished by the destruction of the Jerusalem temple in 70 AD when some of the Apostles were still living and thus fulfilling the word of Jesus that only some will not have died.
This coming of the Son of Man in his kingdom is explained by some as the destruction of Jerusalem and by others as the beginning of the Church. But referring it to the Transfiguration meets the requirements of the context all Synoptists follow this statement with the Transfiguration, Mk 9: Furthermore, Peter, who was one of those standing here, referred to the Transfiguration in the same words II Pet 1: Chafer calls the Transfiguration a "preview of the coming kingdom on earth" L.
