The Olivet prophecy focuses on one of the most important events of divine history, the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70. This was a judgment event that fulfilled Old Testament messianic prophecy, particularly prophecies found in Daniel, Zechariah, Joel, and Malachi. With the destruction of the Temple, the practice of the Old Testament sacrificial system was brought to an end, never to reestablish. As twenty-first century Christians we live with the expectation of Christ’s second coming, an event defined by resurrection and the end of history. This is the blessed hope and the final event of the present age.
