This weekend we picked up where we left off in our Luke series, with Brian Sumner unpacking Luke 21 and the signs of the end of the age. Although much is said in this passage, it is helpful to approach Jesus’ discussion of the temple with bifocal vision in which we can see what’s near and what’s distant. Noting that many of us can get caught up in the details and experience anxiety about the end of times, Brian echoes Jesus’ words that we should stand firm and be on watch so that we will not be deceived.
