Blueprint for the End
MARK 13:1-37

There seems to have always been, on the part of man, a keen interest in the
future. Dwight D. Eisenhower said one time, "I am greatly interested in the

been in the temple and has been dealing with those who have determined they
are going to put Him to death. The temple represents the ultimate of the
failure of the Jews to really know God in a personal kind of way. The temple
