For the life of me I can not come to terms with old timers in the "truth" who could swallow this interpretation of scripture about an overlapping generation .
When Jesus spoke about "this generation"
Are their any real Bible students among younger ones any more ?
Here are 3 Bible Scriptures that confirm a generation is approximately 40- 50 years long give or take a few years .
1. Matt:1 :17 Abraham born 2016-18 BC Jesus born 2 BC Approx.
Therefore 2016 -18 years divided by 42 generations is approx. 48 years .
2.Luke 3:23 -38 ,again approximately 50 years .
3. Matt.24:34 , Jesus was about 30 years old when he made that prophecy ,his prophecy was fullfilled in AD 70 that means about 40 years .
Their is no indication or even a suggestion of any overlapping generation in any scripture in the Bible ,it is purely an invention of the WTB&TS to cover up their failed prophecy once again.
