Matthew 24:1-14

ESV 1 Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. MSG 1 Jesus then left the Temple. As he walked away, his disciples pointed out how very impressive the Temple architecture was. ESV 2 But he answered them, "You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down." MSG 2 Jesus said, "You're not impressed by all this sheer size, are you? The truth of the matter is that there's not a stone in that building that is not going to end up in a pile of rubble." ESV 3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?" MSG 3 Later as he was sitting on Mount Olives, his disciples approached and asked him, "Tell us, when are these things going to happen? What will be the sign of your coming, that the time's up?" ESV 4 And Jesus answered them, "See that no one leads you astray. MSG 4 Jesus said, "Watch out for doomsday deceivers. ESV 5 For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray. MSG 5 Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, 'I am Christ, the Messiah.' They will deceive a lot of people. ESV 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. MSG 6 When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don't panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. ESV 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. MSG 7 Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places. ESV 8 All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. MSG 8 This is nothing compared to what is coming. ESV 9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. MSG 9 "They are going to throw you to the wolves and kill you, everyone hating you because you carry my name. ESV 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. MSG 10 And then, going from bad to worse, it will be dog-eat-dog, everyone at each other's throat, everyone hating each other. ESV 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. MSG 11 "In the confusion, lying preachers will come forward and deceive a lot of people. ESV 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. MSG 12 For many others, the overwhelming spread of evil will do them in - nothing left of their love but a mound of ashes. ESV 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. MSG 13 "Staying with it - that's what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won't be sorry, and you'll be saved. ESV 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. MSG 14 All during this time, the good news - the Message of the kingdom - will be preached all over the world, a witness staked out in every country. And then the end will come.
