Title: "When Will These Things Be?" Understanding Biblical Eschatology in the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24-25
Author: Prairie, David
Advisor: Pennington, Jonathan T. Vickers, Brian J.
Abstract: This project is a biblical-theological treatment of Matthew's record of the Olivet Discourse, the most extensive teaching from Jesus regarding his own second coming. Jesus answers his disciples' questions about the destruction of the temple, the signs associated with his coming, and the close of the age. They assume that the temple's demise accompanies the end of all things, that Jesus' coming will be anticipated by signs, and that these events are imminent.

Jesus' discourse emphasizes that only the Father knows when these things will be, therefore his followers must be alert, ready, and faithful in stewarding the earth until he comes. An extended age will make it seem like Christ's coming is delayed. The signs throughout the age often link back to previous OT signs while also previewing the only sure sign, which is the glorious appearing of the Son of Man.
