Jesus Answers the Pharisees
Interwoven Gospels

Now being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God cometh, Jesus answered them and said, "The kingdom of God cometh not with an outward appearance, nor shall they say, 'Lo, here!' or 'There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is now in your midst."

Then He said to His disciples, "There will come days when ye shall long to see one of the days of the Son of man, and shall not see it. And they shall say to you, 'Lo, here,' or 'Lo, there;' go not forth, nor follow them. For as the lightning flashing from the one side under heaven shineth to the other under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in His day. But first it is necessary that He suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They ate, they drank, they married, they gave in marriage, until the day Noah entered into the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise even as it came to pass in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but on the day that Lot went forth from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed them all.

In the same manner shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he who shall be on the housetop. and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away. And likewise he that is in the field, let him not return back. Remember Lot's wife. Whosoever shall seek to gain his life, shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose it, shall preserve it. I say to you, in that night, two will be upon one bed; one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; one shall be Taken and the other left." And answering, they say to Him, "Where, Lord?" And He said to them, "Where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together."
