Luke 21.8-24 list events that will take place up to the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the temple in AD 70. Luke 21.25-36 record signs of the second coming. By way of reflection and application John Ting looks at 1. Did the events of 21.8-36 take place in the New Testament era or do they refer to the future end time? 2. Persecution and response to persecution. 3. Living in the light of his return – watch and pray! 4. Do not be anxious about what the future may hold but trust that God has our future in his hands and that his grace will be sufficient.
