How was Jesus, who some say was just an ordinary man, able to make such an accurate prediction? What made him think that his message would really reach that far. It would be different if he said the message would spread throughout their land, but Jesus made the claim that the message would be heard world wide and to all nations. That's a pretty bold prediction for those days.
As we can see today with our own eyes the message of Jesus is still being spread all over the world, he has the most followers and believers the world has ever seen. Regardless of what your thoughts are about Jesus I don't think anyone can over look this prophecy, the mere fact that this prophecy is being played out right before our eyes says alot about Jesus and the message he was spreading at the time.
IMO this is The Greatest Prophecy of All Time.edit on 15-8-2011 by RealTruthSeeker because: (no reason given)

This verse in particular can mean a number of different things. It could mean the world at the time of the writing or just the leaders of nations or every single individual. It is far too cryptic to try and get specifics out of it.

I find it hard to believe that the message of the gospel can be told to the whole world. For example, how do you tell someone in an African tribe about Jesus? With just popping and clicking sounds? How about all the tribes hidden in the Amazon?
Should we find them, learn their language, cloth them, teach them the gospel or just classify them savages and kill them off in the name of God like in old times?
