consummation of age's dispensation

"whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things pertain to love, whatsoever things are of honest report, if there be any virtuous thing, if there be any laudable thing, (of learning) those same have ye in your mind, Php. 4:8

consummation of age's dispensation

Matthew 24:3
And as he sat upon the mount Olivet, his disciples came unto him secretly saying: Tell us, when this shall be? and what sign shall be of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
- Tyndale and friends Bible

the end of the world was translated from the Greek soontelia aion:
Word: ?????????
Pronounc: soon-tel'-i-ah
Strong: #G4930
Orig: from 4931; entire completion, i.e. consummation (of a dispensation):--end. #G4931
Use: TDNT-8:64,1161 Noun Feminine
Code: Select all
Word: ????
Pronounc: ahee-ohn'
Strong:  #G165
Orig: from the same as 104; properly, an age; by extension, perpetuity (also  past); by implication, the world; specially (Jewish) a Messianic  period (present or future):--age, course, eternal, (for) ever(-more),  (n-)ever, (beginning of the , while the) world (began, without end).  Compare 5550.   #G104  #G5550
Use:  TDNT-1:197,31 Noun Masculine

So it could be translated more accurately as consumation of the age which was fulfilled when that Jewish Temple period came to an end as the Lord phrophecied:
Matthew 24:1-2
1And Jesus went out and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him, for to shew him the building of the temple.  2Jesus said unto them: see ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you: There shall not be here left one stone upon another, that shall not be destroyed.  
- Tyndale and friends Bible

It was not the romans in 70AD, but God himself that destroyed it, as according to the history records the roman Centurian himself admited it was way too easy to overthrow such a fortified city unless a divine hand was at work. Moreover the Lord corrected me to rightly perceive that what really ended that age was when the veil was supernaturally rent:
Luke 23:44-45
44And it was about the sixth hour. And there came a darkness over all the land, until the ninth hour,  45and the sun was darkened. And the veil of the temple rent even thorow the midst.  
- Tyndale and friends Bible
Provably the veil being supernaturally rent was symbolic of the protection of God being taken away from old Jerusalem.

Afterwards, in the heavenly father's right timing, the following would and will of course eventually all be fulfilled:
Luke 21:24-27
24And they shall fall on the edge of the sword. And they shall be led captive into all nations. And Jerusalem shall be trodden underfoot of the gentiles, until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled.  25And there shall be signs, in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars: and in the earth the people shall be in such perplexity, that they shall not tell which way to turn themselves. The sea and the waves shall roar,  26and men's hearts shall fail them for fear, and for looking after those things which shall come on the earth. For the powers of heaven shall move.  27And then shall they see the son of man come in a cloud with power and great glory.  
- Tyndale and friends Bible

John illustrates a great significance in that the Lord died on the cross symbolizing that old temple representing sin.. and after resurrecting bodily on the third day, rebuilt a new temple:
John 2:13-25
13And the jews' ester was even at hand; And Jesus went up to Jerusalem,  14and found sitting in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep, and doves, and changers of money sitting.  15And he made a scourge of small cords, and drave them all out of the temple, both sheep and oxen, and poured down the changers' money, and overthrew their tables.  16And said unto them that sold doves: Have these things hence, and make not my father's house, an house of merchandise.  17 His disciples remembered, how that it was written: The zeal of thine house, hath even eaten me.  18Then answered the jews and said unto him: what token shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou dost these things?  19Jesus answered, and said unto them: destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.  20Then said the jews: In forty six years this temple was built: and wilt thou raise it up in three days?  21But he spake of the temple of his body.  22As soon therefore as he was risen from death again, his disciples remembered that he thus said unto them. And they believed the scripture, and the words which Jesus had said.  23When he was at Jerusalem, at ester in the feast, many believed on his name: when they saw the signs which he did:  24but Jesus put not himself in their hands, because he knew all men,  25and needed not, that any man should testify of man. For he knew what was in man.

The Jews had the very Scriptures that itself testified of the Lord, unfortunately they misrepresented God, so it was time to replace them with those that would truly aknowledge HIM:
Matthew 21:33-44
33Hearken another similitude. There was a certain householder, which set a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and made a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a strange country.  34And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, to receive the fruits of it,  35and the husbandmen caught his servants, and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.  36Again he sent other servants more than the first, and they served them likewise.  37But last of all, he sent unto them his own son, saying: they will fear my son.  38 When the husbandmen saw his son, they said among them selves: This is the heir, come on let us kill him, and let us take his inheritance, to our selves.  39And they caught him and thrust him out of the vineyard, and slew him.  40When the lord of the vineyard cometh: what will he do with those husbandmen?  41They said unto him: he will evil destroy those evil persons, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall deliver him his fruit at times convenient.  42Jesus said unto them: did ye never read in the scriptures? The same stone which the builders refused, is set in the principal part of the corner: this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.  43Therefore say I unto you, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and shall be given to the Gentiles which shall bring forth the fruits of it.  44And whosoever shall fall on this stone, shall be alto broken. And whosoever this stone shall fall upon, he shall grind him to powder.

The Mosaic age coming to an end began a new age with the Holy New Testament being written:
Hebrews 9:26 for then must he have often suffered since the world (Greek: COSMOS) began: But now in the end of the world,(Greek: AEON) hath he appeared once for all, to put sin to flight, by the offering up of himself.

Then during the church age the gentiles were given a great responsibility to preach the good news to everybody according to the New Testament. Albeit the Lord God promised to keep a remnant with Israel, even one hundred forty four thousand of the twelve tribes of Israel, that afterwards according to Revelation will also follow a great multitude (which no man could number)
Revelation 7:9-10
9After this I beheld, and lo a great multitude (which no man could number) of all nations, and people, and tongues, stood before the seat, and before the lamb, clothed with long white garments, and palms in their hands,  10and cried with a loud voice, saying: Health be to him that sitteth upon the seat of our God, and unto the lamb.

There are many people from the tribes of Israel throughout the world, and now many even in the land of Israel, ironically a land that was deserted for a long time, with the tribe of Judah returning there in mass, it started to come back to life...
Romans 11:15-32
15For if the casting away of them, be the reconciling of the world: what shall the receiving of them be, but life again from death?  16For if one piece be holy, the whole heap is holy. And if the root be holy, the branches are holy also.  17Though some of the branches be broken off, and thou being a wild olive tree art graft in among them, and made partaker of the root, and fatness of the olive tree,  18boast not thyself against the branches. For if thou boast thyself, remember that thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.  19Thou wilt say then: the branches are broken off, that I might be graft in.  20Thou sayest well: because of unbelief they are broken off, and thou standest steadfast in faith. Be not high minded, but fear:  21seeing that God spared not the natural branches, lest haply he also spare not thee.  22Behold the kindness and rigorousness of God: on them which fell, rigorousness: but towards thee kindness, if thou continue in his kindness. Or else thou shalt be hewn off,  23and they if they bide not still in unbelief shall be grafted in again. For God is of power to graft them in again.  24For if thou wast cut out of a natural wild olive tree, and wast graffed contrary to nature in a true olive tree: how much more shall the natural branches be graffed in their own olive tree again.  25I would not that this secret should be hid from you my brethren (lest ye should be wise in your own conceits) that partly blindness is happened in Israel, until the fullness of the gentiles be come in.  26And so all Israel shall be saved. As it is written: There shall come out of Sion he that doth deliver, and shall turn away the ungodliness of Jacob.  27And this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.  28As concerning the gospel; They are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are loved for the fathers' sakes.  29For verily the gifts and calling of God are such, that it cannot repent him of them,  30for look, as ye in time passed have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy thorow their unbelief:  31even so now have they not believed the mercy which is happened unto you; That they also may obtain mercy.  32God hath wrapped all nations in unbelief, that he might have mercy on all.

Revelation 3:12
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out. And I will write upon him, the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God and I will write upon him my new name.
- Tyndale and friends Bible

Revelation 21:1-8
1And I saw a new heaven, and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth, were vanished away, and there was no more sea.  2And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband.  3And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God.  4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone.  5And he that sat upon the seat, said: Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.  6And he said unto me: it is done I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning, and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life free.  7He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  8But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
