When it comes to hermeneutics (principles and systems of interpretation) and eschatology (end time events), SI members reflect a number of viewpoints.

What is your understanding of Matthew 19:28 based upon your perspective?

The text, is ESV, reads:

Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
