“Mathew 16:28.  Verily I say onto you, There are some standing
here, which shall not taste of death, till they see
the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

This has been variously interpreted, but if this were said to the
disciples, one could assume that it was accepted at face value and
that the trip to Jerusalem was made in the assurance that the Messianic
kingdom was about to be established.”

Isaac Asimov
Asimov’s Guide to the Bible

What are those interpretations?
Particularly, why are we still waiting?

You know what I Think of that?

There has been theorist who say that people throw them selves in to hell When they see the face of god and has seen all the good he has done and see all of what they done on earth and Are filled with regret they throw themselves in, not god.

I've asked this before, apparentely the Jews end of the bargain is done, but they have to wait for Christians to get their act together before they can reap the rewards. Least that's how it was explained in a roundabout way.
