People's Bible Notes for Matthew 16:28


Mt 16:28 Shall not taste death, till they see the Son of man. The reference is not to his final coming to judge the world, but to his spiritual coming to establish his kingdom. This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. Mark shows the meaning by substituting, "Till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power" (Mr 9:1). The "coming of the Son of man in his kingdom" means, therefore, the same as "the kingdom of God come with power". Compare Ac 1:8 Lu 24:49. The kingdom came with power on the day of Pentecost (Ac 2:1).

Discussion for Matthew 16:28

  • Well wisher on Matthew 16:28
    "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom." I think it refers: - Matthew 16:23- ..."Get away from me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my way, because these thoughts of yours don't come from God, but from man." - From above verse it is clear that Satan also were there. -Hence "Some here" refers not Man, it refers "Satan" and who will not die until they have seen the Son of Man as King.
  • John S on Matthew 16:28
    Yahshua promised His disciples that He would return for them within their lifetimes. The apostles fully expected this, and it can be seen by Matt 10:23, Matt 24:29-31, 2 Thess 2, 1 John 2:18, Rev 22:20 and many many other places. He did return in 79 AD at the eruption of Mt Vesuvius to receive the elect. It is not well recorded in history, but it did happen, otherwise Lease is right and He was a liar.
  • Gene on Matthew 16:28
    the honest and true interpretation brothers is just like jacob and david are dead to us...they are alive in christ...hear on..in revelation it clearly shows 1. the resurrected saints and the ones "changed " will live and reign with Christ 1000 years rev 20 4 2. the rest of the "dead " are raised after the 1000 years and they see God AMEN. they see The Lord and justice is done. they recieve the second death. REV 20 12 AT THIS TIME they see his kingdom. how it has come in power and in glory and in all truth. bless you all
  • Simeon de Castro, Jr. I on Matthew 16:28
    ...they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom is also related to Mathew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. It is not the second coming of Jesus in the judgement day but it refers to the Church of God build upon the rock,in Mathew 16:18. This is the Kingdom of God mentioned in a prayer that ....thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.(Daniuel 5:21 & Daniel 2:44) It is a true church found in the Bible by which the gates of hell shall not prevail. 2nd Cor. 1:1; 1 Cor. 1:1-2
  • Isha on Matthew 16:28
    Luke 9: 27-36 and Mark 9:1-9 answers Matt. 16:28 in that this was fulfilled six days afterwards where Peter, James, and John ("some standing here") got to witness Jesus coming (Strongs G2064 verb used for BOTH arriving and returning ALSO metaphor for SHOWING ITSELF)i.e Jesus SHOWING HIMSELF/REVEALED IN TRANSFIGURATION with Moses and Elijah on the Mountain.
    ALSO, biblically, the meaning of 'the kingdom of G-d' FAR MORE THAN the elementary idea of a physical gov't.
  • Lease on Matthew 16:28
    I think you're making a tortured explanation of a straightforward prophecy that turned out to be wrong.
    ...Unless there's a 2,000-year-old guy walking around.
    "Kingdom" means "kingdom." Don't get metaphorical all of a sudden, if you take the rest of the Bible literally.
  • Karl on Matthew 16:28
    This at the end of chapter 16. You continue to read into chapter 17 where Christ explains to the desciples that John the baptist was the re-incarnation of Eli'as "But I say unto you, That Eli'as is come already and they knew him not," Verse 13 "Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist." I believe there are Christians still here from the time of Christ. yinsh
