Toward the end of his earthly ministry, Jesus predicted the destruction of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. His shocked disciples asked when it would happen. Jesus’ response, a lengthy monologue about coming chaos and tribulation, forms the Olivet Discourse, an important and controversial text that has drawn intense interest from Christians through the centuries.
In this booklet from the Crucial Questions series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines the discourse to glean from it truths regarding who Jesus was, what He really meant, and what His words mean for us today.
