Understanding the Olivet Discourse
“Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3
Jesus’ disciples were as anxious as we are today to know the timing of His return as King. In Matthew 24—25 Jesus delivered the well-known, but often misunderstood, Olivet Discourse to help ease the fear that this world will never know peace. In this verse–by–verse study Dr. Showers explains what Christ told His disciples regarding the future and why the world is moving in the direction that it is today.
