New American Bible (Revised Edition)
26 What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life? 27 [a](A)For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory, and then he will repay everyone according to his conduct. 28 [b]Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”Read full chapter
- 16:27 The parousia and final judgment are described in Mt 25:31 in terms almost identical with these.
- 16:28 Coming in his kingdom: since the kingdom of the Son of Man has been described as “the world” and Jesus’ sovereignty precedes his final coming in glory (Mt 13:38, 41), the coming in this verse is not the parousia as in the preceding but the manifestation of Jesus’ rule after his resurrection; see notes on Mt 13:38, 41.
