Matthew 10:5,6 - "These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel." Matthew 11:1 - "After Jesus had finished instructing the twelve disciples,...". Based on the two above verses, the scriptures between those verses are instructions to the disciples before sending them out two by two. Matthew 10:23 -".....I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. It would appear that the Son of Man should come before the desciples return. In Matthew 12, the desciples had returned. Had the son of Man come? Since the Son of Man was already there, doesn't this mean the second coming of Christ? Can anyone shed some light on this?
