56 Did Christ promise to return before long

Here’s where Matthew vs Matthew

In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 10, Jesus says that there’s only enough time to preach in Israel before his return

Matthew 10:23 I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. 

Matthew 16:27 The Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. 28 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.

But in the Gospel Matthew chapter 24, Jesus says to preach in all the world until his return!

Matthew 24:14 This Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Recap: First he says that there’s only time to preach locally before the second coming of Christ. But then he commands the disciples to go preach in all the world until the second coming. Thus, to me, the Gospel of Matthew smacks of multi-authorship. Further, I say those co-authors failed to work in close concert.
