Questions about the Generation of 1914
1: What is the new understanding of the "Generation of 1914"?
2: What exactly has changed about the "Generation of 1914"?
3: Will some people who were born in 1914 still be alive when the Great Tribulation begins?
4: The 1995, 1997, and 1999 Watchtower Articles said that , when Jesus said "This generation shall by no means pass away until all these things occur", that Jesus did not use "generation" as referring to any period of time, instead Jesus meant anyone who hears about what happened in 1914, and then refuses to become a Jehovah's Witness. Is this correct?
5: All of the Watchtower Articles before 1995, said that it was Jehovah God's and Jesus Christ's PROMISE that some of the people who were alive in 1914 would be alive when the Great Tribulation begins. Is this no longer being taught by the Watchtower Society?
6: What are the Scriptural reasons for changing the "Generation of 1914"?
7: Why would Jesus have even mentioned "This Generation" if He was not referring to a certain period of time?
8: How long is a generation?
9: For decades, on Page 4 of each Issue of Awake! Magazine, it stated that it was the "Creator's Promise" for the end of this system to come before the Generation of 1914 passes away. Then starting in 1995, each Issue of Awake, on Page 4, no longer says anything about the Generation of 1914. Why is this? Why did that change?
10: Did "This Generation" mentioned by Jesus start in 1914?
11: In 1980, and before that, it was said that the people alive in 1914 who make up "This Generation" that will not pass away, had to have been old enough to understand what was happening in 1914 (at least 10 to 15 years old), and that some of these would live to see the start of the Great Tribulation. What are the Scriptural reasons for saying that the "Generation" could have been born in 1914 instead of being 10 to 15 years old?
12: None of that is even being taught now, right?
