The Great Tribulation

Everybody wants to know when the end will be and what it will be like. The disciples asked those questions of Jesus. In this 4-part series of messages first preached in 1988, Brian Watts takes us verse-by-verse through Mark 13. Our starting point for thinking about the end times should be right here in the teaching of Jesus. All the other more complicated passages must fit with the outline Jesus gives us.

But what Jesus said took the disciples by surprise. Perhaps it will surprise us too!

Part 1 Preparation: The End is not yet (Mark 13:1-13)
The key question, and Jesus’ initial answer

Part 2 Fulfillment: The Great Tribulation (Mark 13:14-23)
Abomination, desolation and the fate of Jerusalem

Part 3 Fulfillment: The Sign of his Coming (Mark 13:24-31)
Coming or Going? Coming where?

Part 4 The End (Mark 13:32-37)
The transition from past to future; living in the light of the second coming.
