Matthew 24:1-2

Context
The Destruction of the Temple

24:1 Now 1  as Jesus was going out of the temple courts and walking away, his disciples came to show him the temple buildings. 2  24:2 And he said to them, 3  “Do you see all these things? I tell you the truth, 4  not one stone will be left on another. 5  All will be torn down!” 6 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the transition to a new topic.

2 sn The Jerusalem temple was widely admired around the world. See Josephus, Ant. 15.11 [15.380-425]; J. W. 5.5 [5.184-227] and Tacitus, History 5.8, who called it “immensely opulent.” Josephus compared it to a beautiful snowcapped mountain.

3 tn Grk “answering, he said to them.” The participle ἀποκριθείς (ajpokriqei") is redundant in English and has not been translated.

4 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

5 sn With the statement not one stone will be left on another Jesus predicted the total destruction of the temple, something that did occur in a.d. 70.

6 tn Grk “not one stone will be left here on another which will not be thrown down.”
