24:10 offended, (a-6) Or 'be stumbled.' see ch. 13.57.
24:12 prevail, (b-5) Or 'has been multiplied.' most (c-10) 'The mass,' but here that would tend to give the idea of the mass of the people, not professors. see Daniel 9:27 , 'the many.'
24:15 desolation, (d-9) See Note b, Mark 13:14 . place, (e-24) 'Holy place' is without an article and characteristic. The Greek does not designate some particular place. I have inserted 'what is a' to generalize it. understand,) (f-30) Or 'consider [it].' see Mark 13:14 , and Note c.

24:43 coming, (a-19) Lit. 'is coming.'
