"The NWT translation of EN TE PAROUSIA AUTOU at 1 Cor 15:23 is very unique and I have never been able to find any other version rendering the Greek EN as "during" here. The Greek EN literally means "in" but may also be rendered "at" and even "during". If you will come the exact same Greek phrase at 1 John 2:28 -- EN TE PAROUSIA AUTOU -- and note how the NWT/KIT handle it there =3D "in the presence of him" [KIT] and "at his presence" [NWT]. A similar phrase occurs at 1 Th 3:13 -- EN TE PAROUSIA TOU KYRIOU. [Also 1 Th 2:19.] I believe the Society wanted to support the position that the Parousia was something a generation long so they used "during." I wrote the Society about this without a response. I also asked a group of JW Greek linguists if they could support this use of "during" and they admitted they could not."
