Ah, how did you get that he made a false promise? He said himself right here:
31 “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your
fathers’ guilt. 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? 34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and
scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you
may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered
between the temple and the altar. 36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
He predicted the manner Peter would glorify him, being led to his own crucifiction.
17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love
And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. 18 Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when
you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.” 19 This He spoke, signifying by what
death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me.”
The ones he sent to fill up the measure of God's wrath against the pharisees for, were the first century jewish christians and their gentile
brothers. Apostle Stephen was the first to die, stoned illegally 6 months after the crucifiction of Christ, Saul of Tarsus (later Apostle Paul) bore
witness to that event.
