Jesus Foretells Destruction of the Temple
13 yAnd as he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!”
2 And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? zThere will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”
Signs of the End of the Age
3 And as he sat on athe Mount of Olives opposite the temple, bPeter and James and John and cAndrew asked him dprivately, 4 “Tell us, ewhen will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?” 5 And Jesus began to say to them, f“See that no one leads you astray. 6 gMany will come in my name, saying, h‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. 7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, ido not be alarmed. This jmust take place, but the end is not yet. 8 For knation will rise against nation, and lkingdom against kingdom. There will be mearthquakes in various places; there will be nfamines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.
