charles walter doughty's comment on 2013-02-02 12:00:34:

The word in the Hebrew is "old men" or elders, It is hard to believe that it is so ambiguously translated as to be "ancients". There is another Hebrew word for ancient, it is used of God and Jesus "ancient of days". The reign of Christ is accompanied by the agreement of the sun and moon who shine the more in recognition of this fact and will cease also in the same recognition. Evangelists ordain elders (Titus 1:5), and elders oversee the congregations in the Kingdom of Christ. It is a great loss that this passage has not been accurately translated.
