Implications of Christ’s Second Coming

In the final week of Jesus’ ministry on earth, he had many vigorous debates at the Temple. As Matthew 24 opened up, He and his disciples crossed the Kidron Valley and went up to the Mount of Olives. The Temple would have been strikingly visible to them as they looked westward from the Mount of Olives. It was there that Jesus predicted the utter destruction of the Temple to which the disciples undoubtedly felt very troubled by. They asked Jesus about it and Jesus addressed their questions. Matthew summarized the teaching on the Mount of Olives in Matthew 24-25. This video touches on some of the highlights of this teaching that is still timely today.
