While leaving the Temple, Yeshua’s disciples pointed out the beauty and elegance of the Temple. In His response to them, Yeshua said, "...See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down” When they arrived at the Mount of Olives, while sitting alone with Yeshua, His disciples asked Him three questions in response to the teachings He had taught while in Jerusalem and pertaining to what He had said concerning the Temple and its destruction. The disciples asked Yeshua, “Tell us, when shall these things be? What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Yeshua did not answer their questions directly or give dates or timelines. Instead, Yeshua began by warning them of being deceived by men that would deceive many and gave them signs to look for. In this parabolic teaching about virgins, Yeshua pressed upon His disciples the importance of watching and staying prepared so that when He returned to redeem His people, we would all be watching for Him, prepared, and ready for His return.
