Jesus teaches a very simple lesson in this passage: Be ready! What exactly are we to be ready for? Drawing on an understanding of the Jewish idiom for a wedding, Dr. Bramson explains what we are to be ready for. In addition, Dr. Bramson contrasts the Biblical descriptions of the rapture versus the second coming. How can we tell the difference? Finally, Dr. Bramson explains what the rapture is and outlines the beliefs of many denominations, where most do not believe in the rapture.
