In this verse, Jesus tells those who are present that some of them will live to see the coming of the Kingdom of god. This seems to imply that the second coming of Christ, which many Christians are still waiting for, was to happen while some of them are still alive.
If you are a Christian who believes the return of Christ will happen in the future, what do you understand this verse to mean?
