But there is just... nothing. Nobody cared, in other words, not pro or con. How consistent is that reaction to the descriptions Jesus provided? How likely an outcome? That isn't something that can be answered with a wan "nobody was writing down much of anything" as though it were just another neighborhood barbecue that could be forgotten in the shuffle.
I'm sorry, no help, basically nothing. People like yourself are simply left to ponder why Jesus didn't come back when he said he would. This has led to the preposterous Postponement Theory.
So, I like where I am better than where you are. You have to explain why no explanation has been given for why Jesus said he would return *within the lifetime of certain of his hearers* and here we are, 2,000 years and waiting.
