Yeshua spoke of a coming event, the Desolating Sacrilege (Abomination of Desolation is another common translation). What was he referring to? Caligula’s intent to put a statue in the Temple in 40 CE? The coming Jewish war with Rome in 66-70 CE? Or the end of the age and anti-Christ?
Supposedly, Yeshua was a mistaken prophet. He thought his death would bring about the apocalypse and the soon end of the age. So a common reading of Mark 13 is that Yeshua was thinking of the Jewish war with Rome and was simply wrong. But have these views properly taken into account Yeshua’s (and Mark’s) theme of the delay of the End?
COMING: The children’s book is still being developed and will be beautiful. An audio-commentary on Mark should be available by early June. Yeshua for Small Groups is coming soon.
