Gary discusses the Gospel of Matthew and compares it to the book of Revelation. The Olivet Discourse (Mt. 24-25) is a continuation of what Jesus began teaching in Matthew chapter 10. The events revealed in John's Revelation are the same events, fulfilled in the first century. Audience relevance, time texts, and many other context indicators make it clear that the Bible is not speaking about events thousands of years in the future, but about the same time frame as when they were orginally given, leading up to the destruction of the temple and the city (Jerusalem) in AD 70.
