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.

  • Brianna for verse 6
    Though many of the stories we hear on the television are troubling, we should not lose faith in God. He we are foretold what the end would be like. We are merely seeing this prophecy come to life. Let us take courage in knowing that God 's time to act is near, and use this time to make a relationship with Jehovah God.

  • Catherine Taylor for verse 6
    I believe that Matthew 24 is the revelation of the coming of Jesus Christ. It talks about wars, gays, parents against children and children against parents. All these things are coming to pass. I strongly believe that Matthew 24 is the revelation of the coming of Jesus Christ. In addition, mankind should repent before it's too late. God bless you.
