“And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.”
King James Version (KJV)
24:1 #Mark 13:1|; Luke 21:5.
Mt 24:1 The Judgments on the Jewish Nation SUMMARY OF MATTHEW 24: The Temple to Be Utterly Destroyed. The Questions Asked on the Mount of Olives. Wars and Rumors of Wars Predicted. False Prophets and Christs. The Sign for Flight from Jerusalem. The Great Tribulation. How the Son of Man Shall Come. The Sun Darkened. The Coming of the Son of Man. This Generation. The Time of Christ's Coming Unknown. Injunction to Be Always in Readiness. And Jesus . . . departed from the temple. Immediately after the discourse in which he pronounced the woes upon the scribes and Pharisees, upon the temple and Jerusalem. This remarkable chapter is not one upon which commentators are agreed, and the conclusions that I have reached on the points of difference will not be found identical with those of any other writer. I believe, however, that they will be found harmonious with the Scripture. Compare Mr 13:1-37 Lu 21:5-36. His disciples came to [him] to shew him the buildings of the temple. He had just foreshadowed its destruction. With this in mind they point out its splendor, especially the amazing stones used in its construction. Compare Mr 13:1 Lu 21:5. The temple had been rebuilt in great splendor by Herod, and was not fully completed until about thirty years after the Savior's crucifixion.
