know his voice

Today's Know His Voice readings are: Luke 21:12-24, Mark 13:9-20 and Matthew 24:9-22.

Some of this apocalyptic section of the Gospels describes events connected with life up to and during First Jewish Revolt against Roman rule (66-70 A.D.). This revolt culminated in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. New insights into the preparations undertaken for this revolt have been gleaned from recent archaeological discoveries in Galilee, specifically near Nazareth.
