John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 24:3

As he sat on the mount of Olives — Whence they had a full view of the temple. When shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? — The disciples inquire confusedly, Concerning the time of the destruction of the temple; Concerning the signs of Christ's coming, and of the end of the world, as if they imagined these two were the same thing. Our Lord answers distinctly concerning, The destruction of the temple and city, with the signs preceding, Matthew 24:4, &c, Matthew 24:15, &c. His own coming, and the end of the world, with the signs thereof, Matthew 24:29-31. The time of the destruction of the temple, Matthew 24:32, &c.. The time of the end of the world, Matthew 24:36.
