Scripture Reading

Dear Friends,
Attached is the gospel passage for today.  It is one that had me looking into commentaries as to its meaning.  We see the thirteenth chapter of the gospel having Jesus speak and teach of the final days and signs, false signs and warnings.  Below is an explanation of the pasage from the Matthew Henry Commentary.
Be well
der tateos
The Jews in rebelling against the Romans, and in persecuting the Christians, hastened their own ruin apace. Here we have a prediction of that ruin which came upon them within less than forty years after this. Such destruction and desolation, that the like cannot be found in any history. Promises of power to persevere, and cautions against falling away, well agree with each other. But the more we consider these things, the more we shall see abundant cause to flee without delay for refuge to Christ, and to renounce every earthly object, for the salvation of our souls.
