33AThe context of today's Gospel Lk 21:5-19 appears near the end of Jesus' teaching in Jerusalem, just prior to the events that will lead to his crucifixion.

Luke says people are marveling about the Temple Mount adorned with costly stones and votive offerings. Jesus said, “All that you see here--the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down.” By the time of Luke's Gospel that event, the destruction of the Temple by the Romans, had already happened. The destruction of such a magnificent structure as the Temple Mount would have been enough to make Luke's followers think at the end of all things was just near.

But the message we hear from Jesus today is not to be quick to believe those predicting the end of the world.

Nor should his followers be terrified, but he does want them to be prepared. For indeed difficult times are ahead. The persecution that Jesus goes on to predict has been a part of the Christian experience since the beginning of the church in the first century. Our day is no exception. Whether we are directly facing physical persecution or merely defending our faith in ordinary daily life, we can take comfort in Jesus's words today, “I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.”

Here Jesus is assuring us that God is present to all believers, even in times of trouble. Jesus will see to this with his own death. As disciples of Jesus, we try to follow his example, trusting in God's mercy and protection, even when we are facing difficulties.
