Our home group was discussing Mark 13, and specifically where Jesus speaks of the terrible times that will follow the appearance of the "Abomination of Desolation."

His statement was clearly prophetic, and yet, what was he referring to? There had been such an event over a century before. And yet, he is clearly speaking of something else, something future.

So as we look down the road from his viewpoint, the next obvious event is in AD 70, at the destruction of the Temple. That seems to fit fairly well.

But is there more? Is there an additional meaning, more pertinent to our times today? That's a more difficult question.
