Jesus spoke about the destruction of the temple and the signs of the end times. He ended with, "Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened." (Matthew 24:32)

He said this around 30-33 AD.

Now, the temple was destroyed in 70 AD. 

With this, I can approximate a generation as 37 to 40 years. A thousand generations is approximately 37,000 to 40,000 years.
