"Are the last on earth, first in heaven? In what way will that last be first and the first last, as Jesus said in Matthew 19:30? In this video, Pastor Nelson with Bible Munch answers the question, “What did Jesus mean when He said the first will be last and the last will be first?” from video introduction.
"Jesus made the statement “many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first” (Matthew 19:30) in the context of His encounter with the rich young ruler (Matthew 19:16–30). After the young man turned away from Jesus, unable to give up his great wealth (verse 22), Jesus’ disciples asked the Lord what reward they would have in heaven, since they had given up everything to follow Him (verses 27–30). Jesus promised them “a hundred times as much,” plus eternal life (verse 29). Then He said, “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first” (verse 30).." from the article: What Did Jesus Mean When He said the First Will Be Last and the Last Will be First?
