Bible Passage: Mark 13:14-37

Part 37 of Jesus in Action: The Gospel Message of Mark – In 1 Chronicles 12:32 we read of the men of Issachar “who understood the times and knew what Israel should do.”  In his “Olivet Discourse, ” Jesus wants to make his disciples, and us, like those men of Issachar.  We are to understand the times and so remain faithful to our Lord.  Our passage this morning highlights three aspects of the “times” facing Jesus’ hearers.
