Jesus Speaks about the Future
1As Jesus was leaving the Temple grounds, his disciples pointed out to him the various Temple buildings.
3Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?*24:3 Or the age?”
4Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you,
9“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.*24:9 Greek on account of my name.
15“The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about—the sacrilegious object that causes desecration*24:15 Greek the abomination of desolation. See Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11. standing in the Holy Place.” (Reader, pay attention!)
23“Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it.
26“So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it!
