While Jesus and a few of His disciples were on the Mount of Olives, they began discussing the grandeur of the temple. In response, Jesus foretold of the destruction of the temple. The disciples asked three questions and Jesus answered in what has become known as the Olivet Discourse. How would they (and we) know when the end times would begin? What does this have to do with the budding of the fig tree? What will be the signs of Jesus’ return?
