I’ve been meditating on Mark 9:1
And Jesus was saying to them, “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” – NASB
I’ve been thinking on it amongst the context of the entire Word, because Scripture must agree with Scripture. Still, it makes me wonder if one of the Disciples are still alive. Wouldn’t that make for a fascinating story?
If so… then would the returned kingdom be indicated here:
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. – Revelation 19:11 NASB
Imagine his story…living in the somewhere near 2000 years, witnessing the war between God and satan, the powers and principalities, play out over such a long period of time. Would his book be similar in tone to Ecclesiastes? Will the person have had children? Sorrow? Joy?
I’ve thought of writing a novel within the Baqash framework (once I finish all of the Baqash books), but where it doesn’t directly effect the characters within.
And which disciple would the person be? One of the twelve? One of the many who followed Him?
