Parallels of the Lord's Great Prophecy (NIV)

MATTHEW 24 MARK 13 LUKE 17 & 21
1 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 1 As he was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!" Luke 21:5 Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said,
2 "Do you see all these things?" he asked. "I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down." 2 "Do you see all these great buildings?" replied Jesus. "Not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down." Luke 21:6 "As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down."
3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming 1,2, and of the end of the age?" 3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John and Andrew asked him privately,

4 "Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are all about to be fulfilled?

Luke 21:7 "Teacher," they asked, "when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?"
4 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you.

5 For many will come in my name, claiming, `I am the Christ,' and will deceive many

5 Jesus said to them: "Watch out that no one deceives you.

6 Many will come in my name, claiming, `I am he,' and will deceive many.

Luke 21:8 He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, `I am he,' and, `The time is near.' Do not follow them.
7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Luke 21:9 When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away."
7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. Luke 21:10 Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

8 All these are the beginning of birth pains
9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 9 "You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them. Luke 21:12 "But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.
11 Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit. Luke 21:13 This will result in your being witnesses to them.

Luke 21:14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.

Luke 21:15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.


10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,

12 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.

13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Luke 21:16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death.

Luke 21:17 All men will hate you because of me.

Luke 21:18 But not a hair of your head will perish.

Luke 21:19 By standing firm you will gain life.

Luke 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near

11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.

12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,

13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

 

 

 

.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations
15 "So when you see standing in the holy place `the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel--let the reader understand-- 14 "When you see `the abomination that causes desolation' standing where it does not belong--let the reader understand--then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  

Luke 21:21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.

Luke 21:22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written
 

 

18 Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak.

15 Let no one on the roof of his house go down or enter the house to take anything out.

16 Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak

17 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!

LUKE 17:31 On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything.

Luke 21:23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.

20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 18 Pray that this will not take place in winter,
Luke 21:24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
19 because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now--and never to be equaled again.
22 If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 20 If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them
23 At that time if anyone says to you, `Look, here is the Christ!' or, `There he is!' do not believe it. 21 At that time if anyone says to you, `Look, here is the Christ!' or, `Look, there he is!' do not believe it.
24 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible 22 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect--if that were possible.
25 See, I have told you ahead of time 23 So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
LUKE 17:22 Then he said to his disciples, "The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it
26 "So if anyone tells you, `There he is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, `Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. Luke 17:23 Men will tell you, `There he is!' or `Here he is!' Do not go running off after them.
27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Luke 17:24 For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other
LUKE 17:25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation
28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather. Luke 17:37 "Where, Lord?" they asked. He replied, "Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.
29 "Immediately after the distress of those days "`the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.' 24 "But in those days, following that distress, "`the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

25 the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'

Luke 21:25 "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

Luke 21:26 Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

30 "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. 26 "At that time men will see the Son of Man coming3 in clouds with great power and glory. Luke 21:27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming3 in a cloud with power and great glory.
Luke 21:28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
27 And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
32 "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near 28 "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near Luke 21:29 He told them this parable: "Look at the fig tree and all the trees.

Luke 21:30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near.

33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door 29 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door Luke 21:31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
34 I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened 30 I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Luke 21:32 "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away
LUKE 21:34 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap

LUKE 21:35 For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

LUKE 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

36 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 32 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. LUKE 17:26 "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; LUKE 17:27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
LUKE 17:28 "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building.

LUKE 17:29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. LUKE 17:30 "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.

 

LUKE 17:32 Remember Lot's wife!

LUKE 17:33 Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.

LUKE 17:34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left
40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. LUKE 17:36 Two [men] shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left LUKE 17:35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.
42 "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come 34 It's like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch
35 "Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back--whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.

36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping.

37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: `Watch!'"

43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.
44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

45 "Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?

46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns.

47 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.

48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, `My master is staying away a long time,'

49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.

50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of.

51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

1 Vine's, page 200: "PAROUSIA ... lit., "a presence," para, "with," and ousia, "being" (from eimi, "to be"), denotes both an "arrival" and a consequent "presence with." For instance, in a papyrus letter a lady speaks of the necessity of her parousia in a place in order to attend to matters relating to her property there. Paul speaks of his parousia in Philippi, Phil. 2:12 (in contrast to his apousia, "his absence;" see ABSENCE). Other words denote "the arrival" (see eisodos and eleusis, above). Parousia is used to describe the presence of Christ with His disciples on the Mount of Transfiguration, 2 Pet. 1:16. When used of the return of Christ, at the Rapture of the Chruch, it signifies, not merely His momentary "coming" for His saints, but His presence with them from that moment until His revelation and manifestation to the world. In some passages the word gives prominence to the beginning of that period, the course of the period being implied, 1 Cor. 15:23; 1 Thess. 4:15; 5:23; 2 Thess. 2:1; Jas. 5:7,8; 2 Pet. 3:4. In some, the course is prominent, Matt. 24:3,37; 1 Thess. 3:13; 1 John 2:28; in others the conclusion of the period, Matt. 24:27; 2 Thess. 2:8.
