Right, but nowhere does it say in his lifetime. Teachers have used the written and oral word of the Prophets, including the 5 books of Moses throughout history up until John. And, we use them today as well. Never said while he was alive. Many OT prophets spoke of the "last days" so obviously not in their time periods on earth. And, it will happen. Even the ones who crucified Christ will see him coming from spirit prison or paradise if they have repented. Jesus did forgive the Roman soldiers as he said "forgive them for they know not what they do." I'm sure every Christian since the resurrection have hoped of his 2nd coming. But, Christ even said he didn't know when that was. Only the Father knows. Pointing out that the two are not the same personage. Both members of the Godhead and are Gods but separate and distinct personages of glorified resurrected flesh and bones.
