Before Jesus death he had talked to his disciples several times about him going away and coming back again. At the time they did not understand what he meant, but later on they would remember what he had told them. Read what he said to them on one occasion in Luke 12:35-48.

Jesus told them that even he didn't know the day or hour when he would return, only God did (Matthew 24:36). He did tell them though some of the signs that his return was near. We can read some of these in Matthew 24:37-39.

In the Old Testament there are many more prophecies that tell us what to look for. Quite often these have been written using poetic or symbolic language. We will look at these in greater detail in our Home Study.
