Matthew 24: Two Keys to Understanding

“Matthew 24 is knocking at the door.” This expression was made popular by Billy Graham during the 1950s and 60s. So well received was this saying that Johnny Cash released a song by that same title in 1973. Matthew 24 is one of the most wrongly interpreted chapters in the Bible. The signs of Matthew 24 point to the destruction of Jerusalem and not to the second coming of Jesus and the end of the world. In fact, the entirety…

Matthew 23: Don’t Be That Guy
