THE TWENTY- SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Mark 13: 1 - 8 The Day of the Lord
This passage must be read with one thing in mind. Again and again we have to return to this matter because there is so much of the New Testament which is not intelligible without it. The Jews never doubted that they were the chosen people, and they never doubted that one day they would occupy the place in the world which the chosen people, as they saw it, deserved and were bound to have in the end.
