CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR:
DESOLATION, OPPRESSION, AND THE PAROUSIA

[“Prove Yourselves Ready!”]
(Key word: Oppression)

[Often called “the Little Apocalypse” we have here combined the parallels in Mark chapter 13 and Luke chapter 21.]

Matthew 24:1-2 – The Setting

|| Mark 13:1, 2; Luke 21:5, 6

MT24:1 And having gone out from the Temple[1] Jesus was going his way and his disciples came toward him to show him the buildings of the Temple. {MK13:1 and one of his disciples asked him: “Teacher, see what kind of stones (LK21:5 it is adorned with fine stones and dedicated things) and what kind of buildings!”} MT24:2 But Jesus responded: “Do you see all these great buildings? Listen to this truth: Everything you see will be thrown down[2] and not a stone left upon a stone!”

*

[1] Temple: Here the Greek word is HIERON meaning the entire Temple complex (see Thayer’s and Vine’s) and not NAOS which is always the innermost shrine itself. One must understand how dear the Temple was to the heart of these Jewish disciples.

[2] Thrown down: These words are very similar to Daniel 8:13 and may be the source of the Nazarene’s prophecy.

Note about

  1. Naos: shrine where a god resides (Matthew 12:4; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Corinthians 6:16)
  2. Hieron: God’s House a House of prayer; term for the Tabernacle of Moses: House, Sanctuary, and Temple (Isaiah 56:7; Matthew 12:4; 21:3) ; Temple [courtyard] – temple compound (Luke 2:27)
