“Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Matt 24:3The apostles were so shocked at the thought of the destruction of the temple, they assumed that it must herald the 2nd coming of Christ and the end of all things. They asked 3 questions, thinking they all refured to one event.
1) When will these things happen?
2) What will be the signs of your coming?
3) (What will the signs) the end of the age?
Jesus, in His answer pointed out that all these things would not happen at one time.
Next time we will look at how the Lord describes the destruction of city of Jerusalem and the temple and see the signs and the times He refured to.
