Luke 21

1 Now he looked up and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. 2 But he also saw a certain poor widow casting two bronze, coins in there. 3 And he said, Truly I say to you*, This poor widow cast in more, than they all. 4 For* all these cast into the gifts of God out of what is abounding to them, but she cast in out of her lacking, all the livelihood that she had.

{Lk 21: 5-24 & Mt 24: 1-28 & Mk 13: 1-23 Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. See also: Lk 19: 41-44 & Lk 23: 28-31. }

5 And while* some are speaking about the temple, how it has been adorned with beautiful stones and votive, offerings, he said, 6 As for these things which you* are viewing, the days will be coming in which one stone will not be left here upon another stone, that will not be torn, down.

7 Now they asked him, saying, Therefore teacher, when will these things be? And what will be the sign whenever these things are about to happen?

8 And he said, Beware, that you* should not be misled; for* many will be coming in my name, saying, I am he, and, The time has drawn near. You* therefore, do not travel after them. 9 But whenever you* hear of wars and unrest, do not be terrified; for* it is necessary for these things to happen first, but the end is not immediately here.

10 Then he said to them, Nation will arise against nation and kingdom against kingdom; 11 and there will be great earthquakes in different places and famines and plagues. There will be both terrors and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all these things, they will be putting their hands upon you* and will be persecuting you*, giving you* up to the synagogues and prisons, leading you * in front of kings and governors because of my name. 13 But it will be transpiring into a testimony for you*. 14 Therefore place it into your, your* hearts, not to meditate beforehand how to make a defense. 15 For* I will be giving you* a mouth and wisdom, which all who lay in opposition to you* will not be able to stand against, nor to speak against. 16 But you* will be given up even by parents and relatives and friends, and brethren, and they will be slaying some out of you*. 17 And you* will be hated by all men because of my name. 18 And a hair out of your, your* head may never* perish. 19 You * will procure your, your* souls in your, your* endurance.

20 But whenever you* behold Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that her desolation has drawn near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of her vacate, and do not let those who are in the region enter in it. 22 Because these are days of vengeance, that all things which have been written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing in those days! For* a great calamity will be upon the land, and wrath among this people. 24 And they will be falling by the edge of the sword and will be captured into all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles should be fulfilled.

{Lk 21: 25-28 & Mt 24: 29-51 & Mk 13: 24-37 & 2Th 1: 7-9 Second Coming. }

25 And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and dismay of nations upon the earth, in perplexity from the noisy sea and the noisy billows; 26 men passing, out from fear and expectation of the things which are coming upon the inhabited, earth; for* the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will be seeing the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and much glory. 28 But when* these things are beginning to happen, stand, erect and lift up your, your* heads, because your, your* redemption is drawing near .

{Lk 21: 29-33 & Mt 24: 32-35 & Mk 13: 28-31 Destruction of Jerusalem AD 70. }

29 And he spoke to them a parable: Behold the fig tree and all the trees. 30 Whenever they already cast forth leaves, you* know from looking at them yourselves that the summer is already near. 31 So also you*, whenever you* behold these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Assuredly I am saying to you*, This generation may never* pass away, until all things should happen. 33 The heaven and the earth will pass away, but my words may never* pass away.

{Lk 21: 34-36 & Mt 24: 36-44 & Mk 13: 32-37 Second Coming. }

34 But take, heed to yourselves, lest your, your* hearts might be burdened in a hangover and drunkenness, and anxieties of everyday life, and that day might suddenly stand upon you*; 35 for* it will be coming like a snare upon all those sitting upon the face of all the earth. 36 Therefore, watch in every season, beseeching, in order that you* might be deemed worthy to flee away from all the things which are about to happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.

{Mk 11: 19-26 & Mt 21: 20-22 & Lk 21: 37-38 Road from Bethany to Jerusalem Tues. }

37 Now every day, he was teaching in the temple, and every night he went out and was camping in the mountain, being called Olives.

{Mt 24: 45-51 & Lk 21: 37. }

38 And all the people were coming at daybreak to hear him in the temple.

{Mk 14: 1-2 & Mt 26: 1-5 & Lk 22: 1-2 mountain Olives, Bethany, Jerusalem, Tues. Evening, Wed. for the Jews. }
