Did anyone read the Gospel and get an impression that Jesus was telling us that, between the two, His second coming would be the more intimate and understated affair?
Law, good catch that the very people referenced in the quote Dreamliner hangs it all on (aside from ignoring plenty of others) don't bother to verify the event he believes they were promised to literally, bodily witness in their lifetimes. I was staring right through that.
