CHAPTER 24 E. The Prophecy of the Kingdom
1. Concerning Israel
a. From Christ's Ascension to the Consummation of the Age
3 aAnd as He sat on the 1bMount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, 2When will these things be? And what will be the csign of Your 3dcoming and of the econsummation of the age?
5 For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ, and they will lead many astray.
8 All these things are the beginning of 1birth pangs.
10 And at that time many will be stumbled and will deliver up one another and will hate one another.
11 And many afalse prophets will arise and will lead many astray.
12 And because lawlessness will be multiplied, the alove of the many will grow cold.
b. At the Consummation of the Age
(1) The Transpiring of the Great Tribulation
16 Then let those in Judea flee to the mountains;
17 Let him who is on the ahousetop not come down to take the things out of his house;
18 And let him who is in the field not turn back to take his garment.
19 But woe to those who are 1pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days.
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.
(2) Christ's Coming to the Earth
29 aAnd immediately 1after the tribulation of those days, the 2sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 And at that time the 1asign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the 2btribes of the 2land will 3mourn, and they will see the cSon of Man coming 4don the clouds of heaven with 5power and great glory.
