The Lord Jesus' Olivet Discourse

170A The Lord Jesus' Olivet Discourse

The Lord’s Olivet Discourse, found in Matthew 24–25, Mark 13, and Luke 21, is unquestionably one of the most important prophecies contained in God’s Word.  The Lord gave this teaching in response to the disciples’ desire to understand the future about the Jewish temple, and the events associated with its destruction.  The Lord aimed to save the disciples from confusion and deception that might occur before His return to earth.  If only for this reason, we too need to understand the future program of God concerning these events, including the tribulation, advent of the Lord, and the millennial kingdom to follow.  This course aims to provide a consistently literal, clear, and chronologically understandable exposition of this indispensible prophecy.
