Olivet Discourse Comparison Chart = The synoptic gospels have a similar topical flow to answering the question, ""Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?" How many questions do you read in that sentence? Is this the outline for Jesus' answer? The first section is the set up: No stones left upon each other. The second section is a description of the intervening years between Christ's Ascension and the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD; a period manifesting: False Messiahs, Global 'birth pains,' Jewish persecution of Christians, Global advance of the gospel, The abomination that causes desolation (read Luke's 'surrounding armies') [Note chiastic elements of Mat. 24:3-28] The third section is Apocalyptic language reminiscent of Old Testament prophets announcing God's judgment and signals the end for, "this generation." (read rebellious, unbelieving Israel, circa 70AD) The final section concerns, "that day;" "THE 'Day" of Jesus' return and consummation of all things.
