Last part: The woman who gave everything

Mark chapter 13

Jesus describes future troubles

Verses 1-2

The temple (*Godís Great House) was a large and beautiful building. King Herod began to build it about 50 years before. He chose marble, which is a white rock. And he used plenty of gold.

There were yards, rooms and other buildings round the temple. These were all big and beautiful. The whole place was at the top of a hill.

But Jesus said that those buildings would not always be there. He was right. Forty (40) years later, the enemies of the *Jews destroyed all those buildings. Even the best things in this world will have an end.

Next part: Events before Jesusí return
