Returning to this familiar passage, we continue to explore what Jesus meant in His answers to the disciples. We see from their question and by looking at the first part of His answer that He had very much in mind the forthcoming destruction of the temple in 70 AD. All the events that He predicted in the early part of Matthew 24 did indeed take place in the time between Christ’s prophecy and this fulfillment.

We see, however, that the 70 AD events foreshadow the final destruction and coming judgment on the world and we are called upon to be ready individually for that Day, which is surely coming.
