Harmony of Matthew Mark Luke Prophecy of Christ’s Return

 

Only primary fulfillment indicated in left column. No attempt was made to identify the similar events in both time periods. Almost every event exists to some degree in both times.
It is not smart to distort the data forcing it fit the theory “similar phrases” = same entity. Human memory precludes that, similar events at different times will be described similarly.
Elegance, correct assembly of the Jigsaw does not force pieces fit. It’s not smart Commentators rearrange these verses to produce an incomprehensible picture.
Sherlock Holmes would forensically deduce from the eyewitness testimony as given, to arrive at an undistoted view of what is pictured. Just as anyone with common sense will not
force pieces fit when assembling a Jigsaw puzzle.  Not if they want the picture intended by the author which in this case is God.

More More Satire than Prophecy:
Satire 20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when
than the kingdom of God would come, He answered them
prophecy and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with
observation;
21 “nor will they say,`See here!’ or`See there!’
For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Paraphrase: As illustrated by your not seeing the King
of the Kingdom now in your midst, the kingdom did not
