What does "This Generation" mean?

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 9

Luke 21:32  (ID: 2319)

What did Jesus mean when He said that “this generation” would not “pass away” before the prophecies about the end of the age were fulfilled? As Alistair Begg guides us through various views on this difficult passage, he encourages us not to lose sight of Christ when facing complex theological issues. Doctrinal peculiarities can sometimes be distracting; our growth in Christ and in holiness, though, should never be far from our hearts and minds.


32Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place.
