Jesus’ Teaching on the Mount Olives
21 June, 2021
The Mount of Olives is one of Jerusalem’s seven hills.
Jesus knew of its history of suffering and glory.
In king David’s day the summit of the Mount of Olives held a place “Where God was worshiped” (2 Samuel 15:32) and it’s also the same place where the prophet Zechariah had predicted that the Messiah would stand when he came to establish his kingdom. (Zechariah 14:4)
It’s only fitting that Jesus would tell his disciples of parables of the end of the world. He pointed out that his disciples should be less concerned with knowing the date and more concerned with being prepared.
