E. The Prophecy of the Kingdom
1. Concerning Israel
a. From Christ's Ascension to the Consummation of the Age
1 aAnd Jesus came out 1from the 2temple and was going away, and His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the 2temple.
2 But He answered and said to them, Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, There shall by ano means be left here a stone upon a stone, which shall not be 1thrown down.
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?
4 And Jesus 1answered and said to them, 2See that no one aleads you astray.
5 For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ, and they will lead many astray.
6 And you will be hearing of 1wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for it must happen; but the 2aend is not yet.
7 For 1nation will rise up aagainst nation, and 1kingdom against kingdom; and there will be 2bfamines and 3earthquakes in various places.
8 All these things are the beginning of 1birth pangs.
9 Then they will deliver 1you up to atribulation and will bkill you, and you will be chated by all the nations because of My name.
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.
13 But he who has aendured to the end, this one shall be 1saved.
14 And this 1agospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a 2testimony to all the nations, and then the 3bend will come.
