Warnings about the end

1AS JESUS looked up and saw rich people dropping their gifts into the chest of the temple treasury,

2he noticed a poor widow putting in two tiny coins.

3“I tell you this,” he said: “this poor widow has given more than any of them;

4for those others who have given had more than enough, but she, with less than enough, has given all she had to live on.”

5SOME people were talking about the temple and the beauty of its fine stones and ornaments. He said,

6“These things you are gazing at -- the time will come when not one stone will be left upon another; they will all be thrown down.”

7“Teacher,” they asked, “when will that be? What will be the sign that these things are about to happen?”

8He said, “Take care that you are not misled. For many will come claiming my name and saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time has come.’ Do not follow them.

9And when you hear of wars and insurrections, do not panic. These things are bound to happen first; but the end does not follow at once.”

10Then he added, “Nation will go to war against nation, kingdom against kingdom;

11there will be severe earthquakes, famines and plagues in many places, and in the sky terrors and great portents.

12“But before all this happens they will seize you and persecute you. You will be handed over to synagogues and put in prison; you will be haled before kings and governors for your allegiance to me.

13This will be your opportunity to testify.

14So resolve not to prepare your defence beforehand,

15because I myself will give you such words and wisdom as no opponent can resist or refute.

16Even your parents and brothers, your relations and friends, will betray you. Some of you will be put to death;

17and everyone will hate you for your allegiance to me.

18But not a hair of your head will be lost.

19By standing firm you will win yourselves life.

20“But when you see Jerusalem encircled by armies, then you may be sure that her devastation is near.

21Then those who are in Judaea must take to the hills; those who are in the city itself must leave it, and those who are out in the country must not return;

22because this is the time of retribution, when all that stands written is to be fulfilled.

23Alas for women with child in those days, and for those who have children at the breast! There will be great distress in the land and a terrible judgement on this people.

24They will fall by the sword; they will be carried captive into all countries; and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by Gentiles until the day of the Gentiles has run its course.

25“Portents will appear in sun and moon and stars. On earth nations will stand helpless, not knowing which way to turn from the roar and surge of the sea.

26People will faint with terror at the thought of all that is coming upon the world; for the celestial powers will be shaken.

27Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28When all this begins to happen, stand upright and hold your heads high, because your liberation is near.”

29He told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, or at any other tree.

30As soon as it buds, you can see for yourselves that summer is near.

31In the same way, when you see all this happening, you may know that the kingdom of God is near.

32“Truly I tell you: the present generation will live to see it all.

33Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

34“Be on your guard; do not let your minds be dulled by dissipation and drunkenness and worldly cares so that the great day catches you suddenly

35like a trap; for that day will come on everyone, the whole world over.

36Be on the alert, praying at all times for strength to pass safely through all that is coming and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man.”

37His days were given to teaching in the temple; every evening he would leave the city and spend the night on the hill called Olivet.

38And in the early morning the people flocked to listen to him in the temple.
