I note that Jesus talks about the Apocolypse after having a bit of a rant at the Pharisees. Is it possible that:
a) he only thought of it as an extension of that rant
b) having thought of it, he decided it was a good idea...and thus backed it up with Revelations to Paul later on
c) he knew all along (are there earlier references to the Apocolypse than where Jesus talks about it in the NT gospels?) but that seemed an appropriate time to mention it
Whatever the origin and motivation, may I ask who here is feeling the End Times close to hand?
