Matthew 10 has a very interesting evangelistic story. You most likely know that story. Jesus tells His disciples to preach to the lost sheep of Israel. They are pointedly sent to them, not to the Gentiles, preaching that the kingdom is "at hand" (That sounds pretty immediate, don't you think?). Authenticating miracles accompany their efforts. But here is the interesting part- vs.23: "When they persecute you in this city, I say to you, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes." Note: The ones being persecuted are the ones who are to flee to another city. These ones fleeing will not run out of cities of Israel to go through. The reason is that the Son of Man will come before they are able to exhaust all the cities to go to. When did this happen? Or are they still running? Are these persecuting cities of Israel still in existence? Where is there room for a gap so as to still salvage this prophecy for the futurist view? Or is it a different coming we are looking at here?
