Jesus Stories


Jesus begins by telling his disciples what signs to look for. The first one is misleading messiahs, don't be misled, he says, there will be impostors come and claim to be messiah. Many people will believe them, then he says you'll hear of wars and rumors of wars. Don't panic, he says, this is just the beginning. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won't follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world, but all of this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.
