Matthew records the so-called Olivet discourse.  Olivet pertains to the mount of Olives and discourse means spoken communication: Hence, communication that took place on the mount of Olives.

Several things are communicated in chapter 24:

  1.  Jesus foretells the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (It happened in A.D. 70).
  2.  Jesus describes the course of this age.
  3.  Jesus announces the great tribulation.
  4.  Jesus details the events leading up to the return of the King in glory.

Read Matthew 24:1-51
