Note: Calvin interprets Mt 24:15, 21ff as fulfilled in 70AD - literal reading of the passage strongly argues against his interpretation. Be a Berean especially with older commentators such as Calvin, Henry, Jamieson (JFB is one of the best older works), Gill.

Miscellaneous Resources
By Chapter and Verse

Note: Be a Berean especially with older commentators like John Calvin, Adam Clarke, Matthew Henry, Jamieson & Fausset & Brown [actually one of the best "old" commentaries!], John Gill. They often do not interpret the prophetic passages such as Matthew 13, 24, 25 from a literal, futuristic perspective. I would recommend notes by John MacArthur, Dave Guzik, Ray Stedman and John Walvoord (to name just a few) for an alternative interpretation which sees these prophetic passages in Matthew 13, 24,25 as yet future.
