Study 27 From the Book of Mark is: Mark 13:1-23

1.      Verses 1-13.  Notice how Christ translates the abstract enquiry of His disciples into the personal and moral realm. How can we prepare ourselves to meet similar dangers?
2.     Verses 14-23. What is here foretold? How are Christ’s followers to act when it happens? To whom are they to look for deliverance? Of what are they to beware? What may we learn from such a passage concerning God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility?
1.      Verse 14. ‘The desolating sacrilege’: this is the sign of the impending destruction of the Temple for which the disciples had asked (verse 1-4).   It refers to the desecration of the holy place by Roman invaders. Cf. Dn. 11:31.
2.   Verses 15. ‘Him who is on the housetop’: the flat roofs of houses in Palestine were used for places of rest and social intercourse.  Cf. Acts 10:9.
