Mark 13:1-8: The Gospel Lectionary Passage for Sunday, November 15, 2009

This is my own translation of the lectionary gospel lesson for Sunday. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let's discuss the Word of God:

**********

1And as he was going out from the Temple, one of his disciples said to [Jesus], “Teacher, see what sort of stones and what sort of buildings.” 2And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? Absolutely not one stone which shall be absolutely pulled down shall be left upon a stone.”

3And when he was sitting upon the Mount of Olives opposite the Temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him a question among themselves, 4“Tell us when these things will be and what signs when all these things shall be accomplished” 5And Jesus began to say to them, “Watch out that you might be led into something that’s wrong. 6Many will come in my name saying, “I am,” and many will be led into something that’s wrong. 7And when you might hear of war and reports of war, don’t be troubled. This must happen. But it’s not yet the end. 8For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places. There will be famines. These things are the beginning of birth pangs.”
