This book was published in 2004 and belongs to the Coniectanea Biblica New Testament Series.
In a nutshell, the author of this book does a comprehensive study of the phrase “this generation” used in the New Testament. He traces the usage of the phrase through early Judaism then talks about each occurrence of the phrase in the New Testament.
He asserts that every occurence of the phrase refers to a group of people who experienced a direct act of God’s power but reacted with doubt and/or complete rejection. Thus he avoids the whole dispute of whether Jesus was referring to the Jew’s as a race, or if He was referring to the people alive in His own time when He said, “this generation will not pass away until all these things be fulfilled.”
