Jesus wraps up his teaching on the end times with two thunderous admonishes. The first is the nail in coffin of any who try to predict or calculate Christ’s return. The second is a parable reminding us of the purpose for which the Olivet Discourse was given. There is no accidental misinterpretation of Christ’s commands here. Anything that teaches contrary ignores our Lord and is false teaching.
