What Has Come Before:
After Jesus had spoken
his last words to the people and their rulers, he walked out of the Temple with
his disciples. As they were passing through the great gates on the east of the
Temple the disciples said to Jesus, "Master, what a splendid building this is!
Look at these great stones in the foundation!"
Jesus answered the disciples, "Do you see these great walls? The time is coming
when these buildings shall be thrown down when not one stone that you are
looking upon shall be left in its place; when the very foundations of this house
and this city shall be torn up!"
These words filled the followers of Jesus with the deepest sorrow, for they
loved the Temple and the city of Jerusalem, as all Jews loved it, and to them
its fall seemed the ruin of he whole world. Yet they believed the words of their
Master, for they knew that he was a prophet, whose words were sure to come to
pass, and that he was more than a prophet, even the son of God.
They walked with Jesus down into the valley of the brook Kedron, and up the
slopes of the Mount of Olives...

THEY WERE ON TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN and they looked down upon the Temple and the city,
and then some of the disciples said to Jesus, "Master, tell us when shall these
dreadful things be? What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the
Then Jesus sat down with his disciples on the mountain and told them of many
things that were to come upon the city and the world; how wars should arise, and
earthquakes and diseases should break forth; how enemies were to come and fight
against Jerusalem, and destroy it and scatter its people: and how trouble should
arise upon all the earth.
And he told them
about the many things that would happen during the Tribulation spoken of
by the prophets, the horrible time when the anti-christ will stand in
Jerusalem, and the great distress that will be upon the world. He warned
to disbelieve anyone who said he was the christ; that when the
Son of Man appears on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory,
all the nations of the world will see. And he will send his angels with
a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of the heavens to the other. Then he gave the Parable of "The Ten Virgins." This was the story:
The Wise and Foolish Virgins, William Blake 1826

"There were ten young women who were going out one night with their lamps in
their hands to meet the bridegroom. Five of these young women were wise, and
five were foolish. Those that were foolish took with them their lighted lamps,
but had no more oil than that which was in their lamps; but each of the wise
young women carried also a bottle of oil. It was night, and while they were
waiting for the bridal party they all fell asleep. At midnight they were all
awaked by the sudden cry, 'The bridegroom is coming! Go out to meet him!'
"Then all the young women rose up, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish ones
said, 'Let us have some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the other
young women said, 'Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you too; go
to those who sell, and buy oil for yourselves.'
"The young women who had no oil went away to buy; and while they were away the
bridegroom came, and those that were ready went in with them to the feast; and
then the door was shut. And afterward the other young women came, knocking on
the door, and calling out, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!'
"But he said, 'I do not know you', and he would not open the door. Watch,
therefore, for you do not know the day nor the hour when your Lord will come."
Parable of the Sheep and the Goats
Jesus also gave to his disciples another parable or picture of what, shall come
to pass at the end of the world.
He said, "When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the angels of God
shall come with him, then he shall sit on his glorious throne as King. And
before him shall be brought together all the people of the world; and he shall
divide them, and make them stand apart, just as a shepherd divides the sheep
from the goats. And he shall put his sheep on his right hand, and the goats on
his left. Then the King shall say to those on his right hand, 'Come, ye whom my
Father has blessed; come, and take the kingdom which God has made ready for you.
For I was hungry, and you gave me food; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; I
was a stranger, and you took me into your home; I was naked, and you gave me
clothes; I was sick, and you visited me; I was in prison, and you came to me.'
"Then all those on the right of the King will say, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and feed thee?
or thirsty and gave thee
drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked and gave
thee clothes? And when did we see thee sick, or in prison, and come to thee?'
"And the King shall answer, and shall say to them, 'Inasmuch as you did it to one of these my brothers, even the very least of
them, you did it to me.' Then the King shall turn to those on his left hand, and shall say to them, 'Go away from me, ye cursed ones, into the everlasting fire which has been made
ready for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me no food; I
was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you did not open
your doors to me; I was naked, and you gave me no clothes; I was sick, and in
prison, and you did not visit me.'
"Then shall they answer him, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or
sick, or in prison, and did not help thee?' And the King shall say to them, 'Inasmuch as you did it not to one of these the least of my brothers, you did
it not to me.' And the wicked shall go away to be punished forever; but the righteous unto
After these words, Jesus went with his disciples again to Bethany.
