People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:6


Mt 24:6 Ye shall hear of wars. The Jewish war began in A.D. 66, and ended five years after. During this period all the Roman empire was filled with commotion. Nero, the emperor, was overthrown by Galba; six months after, Galba was overthrown by Otho; a few months after, Otho was overthrown by Vitelius; a little later, he was overthrown by Vespasian. All of these but the last, who ascended the throne shortly before Jerusalem was destroyed, died violent deaths.

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    See these, O man? The proud, being many, deceive the proud. For pride forsakes the benefits of my Holy Father. Can the Gospel of Christ be preached by any but Christ, and still be of Christ? These of many opinions confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh yet they fear and tremble, for my blood is a witness. It is written, For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. Repent:
