Jesus taught in the temple. The second temple.
Jesus told his disciples when they asked him, “Lord when shall these things be?” (concerning the endtime)
He spoke to the disciples about future events about the time of ‘the end’.
His answer to the disciples is found in Matthew 24. One of the things he said was to happen refers to the gospel of the kingdom being preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
This is just now happening in our time.
The 10/40 window has gotten much smaller…
Jesus referred to Daniel whom had been given the vision of the endtimes.
Daniel was troubled by what he saw and was told the vision was for an appointed time of the end..Dan.12:4 But thou, Oh Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even unto the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Dan. 12:6 …How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
12:7 …that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
12:8 And I heard and understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
12:9 …go thy way Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed unto the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried: but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand: but the wise shall understand.
12:11And from the time that the daily sacrafice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred hundred and five and thirty days.
Then comes a study of the 70 weeks Prophecy. Daniel 9:21
(It is quite involved with math and accounting for days, weeks and years…and their actual interpretations. I will give a link for this…)
In this chapter it states in verse 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks , and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks, the messiah shall be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come and destroy the city and the sanctuary: and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
9:27 And he (anti-christ) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrafice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Complex, but, This refers to a Messiah, the Orthodox Jews
Messiah. Since we already know Jesus was/is the Messiah, we know they will think they have finally found the true Messiah…but they will be deceived…by the anti-christ. Temple will be rebuilt. They will resume sacraficing in the temple for 3.5 yrs. Then it will become apparant they are wrong about him and have been deceived.
Right now they are looking for the Messiah. This red heifer, like I stated earlier is a sign they have lonnnng been looking for to mark the time of his arrival.
Google: Search red heifer
Anyway, this is my understanding of the matter.
