When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, Jesus said, â€œAs for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down.â€
Â They asked him, â€œTeacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign that this is about to take place?â€ And he said, â€œBeware that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name and say, â€˜I am he!â€™ and, â€˜The time is near!â€™ Do not go after them.
Â â€œWhen you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end will not follow immediately.â€ Then he said to them, â€œNation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and plagues; and there will be dreadful portents and great signs from heaven.
