Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Mark 13:13-23 (Focus: Abomination of Desolation)

In this lesson, we discussed the theological tensions that arise in verse 13 with the phrase “he who endures to the end will be saved.” Then, we take time to examine the historical context of Jesus’ prophecy regarding the “abomination of desolation.” We remember Daniel’s prophecy and its fulfillment in 167 B.C.; we remember Jesus’ prophecy and its fulfillment ca. 66-68 B.C.; and then we discuss how another “abomination of desolation” poses a VERY REAL THREAT in the life of every Christian—even today in the 21st century.
