"I can guarantee this truth: This generation will not disappear until all these things take place.
Truly I tell you, this generation (the whole multitude of people living at the same time, in a definite, given period) will not pass away till all these things taken together take place.
Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these things happen.
30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. All the people on earth will cry in agony when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds in the sky with power and great glory. 31 He will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and from every direction under the sky, they will gather those whom God has chosen.
"You cannot do this, it is a basic error that many make.
The word 'Generation' does not and never has been in the Bible.
The bible is written in ancient Hebrew."

The majority of linguistic experts, academics, researchers, and scholars agree that the New Testament was written in Koine Greek.

I remember being told by Jehovah's Witnesses a few decades back that it meant "within a generation of 1914".
That would make it exactly 100 years this year. Does that get them excited? Is that the longest it could go?
At what point does "within a generation of 1914" get abandoned as an interpretation?
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

"I have to ask, what do the minority say. Considering that the 'Majority' may have axes to grind or be in the pay of the Roman church, I have to ask for your source and pics."
oldest known existent Gospels of Matthew are composed of Greek.
Matthew was not Greek and it is unlikely he wrote in the Greek Language
