Just wondering if you can comment on these two verses. One says Jesus is coming in His kingdom, and the other the kingdom coming with power (Matthew 16:28 and Mark 9:1).
Also parallel is Luke 9:28. Each is a reference to Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). His coming was not literal but representative, through the Holy Spirit, whom He sent to take His place (John 15:26; 16:13-15). He promised His apostles, “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:18). He did come to them (Acts 3:26), through the person of the Holy Spirit, whom He sent to take His place with them (John 14:16-17, 26; 16:7).
