Signs Of The End Of The Age

5 Then Jesus began saying to them, "Pay attention so that no one leads you astray [i.e., from the truth]. 6 [For] many [false teachers] will come, claiming to be me, and saying, 'I am [the Christ] and they will lead many people astray. 7 And when you hear of wars [going on] and rumors of [other] wars [pending], do not worry, for such things must necessarily happen. But the end has not yet come. [Note: By "end" here Jesus probably alludes to the downfall of Jerusalem in AD 70, with its attending destruction of the Temple buildings].
