e. The Disciples' Redemption and
the Overcomers' Rapture
28 And when these things begin to happen, stand erect and lift up your heads, because your aredemption is drawing near.
29 1And He told them a parable: Look at the afig tree and all the trees.
30 As soon as they sprout leaves, you see it and know of yourselves that the summer is already near.
31 So also you, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.
32 Truly I tell you that athis generation shall by no means pass away until all things happen.
33 Heaven and earth shall apass away, but My bwords shall by no means pass away.
34 But atake heed to yourselves lest perhaps your hearts be weighed down with 1debauchery and bdrunkenness and the canxieties of life, and that day come upon you 2suddenly as a dsnare.
35 For it will come in upon all those 1adwelling on the face of all the earth.
36 But be awatchful at every time, bbeseeching that you would 1prevail to 2escape 3all these things which are about to happen and 4cstand before the Son of Man.
