Discussion for Mark 13:2

  • Peg Fava for verse 2
    I may be reading too much into this text, Mark 13:2, but there are stones still left from the Temple, today in Israel there are tours of the remains.

    So I guess it could be the translation of "not one stone..." and focus on the bigger message that Christ is the new temple resurrected? But it bugged me which is why I'm searching for commentary.
