The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – The Temple's Destruction (24:1-3)
The Temple's Destruction (24:1-3)

In much of Matthew 24, Jesus is warning followers who, like Peter, want an optimistic promise of the future (16:21-23) that realism is more important. His followers must prepare themselves to die for his honor before the coming of the end (compare 16:24-28). The introduction to this part of the discourse makes some crucial points.
