Bible Commentary for Luke 21:23

Wesley's Notes for Luke 21:23


21:21 Let them that are in the midst of it - Where Jerusalem stands (that is, they that are in Jerusalem) depart out of it, before their retreat is cut off by the uniting of the forces near the city, and let not them that are in the adjacent countries by any means enter into it.

21:22 And things which are written - Particularly in Daniel.

21:24 They shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive - Eleven hundred thousand perished in the siege of Jerusalem, and above ninety thousand were sold for slaves. So terribly was this prophecy fulfilled! And Jerusalem shall be trodden by the Gentiles - That is, inhabited. So it was indeed. The land was sold, and no Jew suffered even to come within sight of Jerusalem. The very foundations of the city were ploughed up, and a heathen temple built where the temple of God had stood. The times of the Gentiles - That is, the times limited for their treading the city; which shall terminate in the full conversion of the Gentiles.

21:25 And there shall be - Before the great day, which was typified by the destruction of Jerusalem: signs - Different from those mentioned #Lu 21:11|, &c. #Mt 24:29|; Mr 13:24.
