How do you find Israel as the subject of Mathew 24? Jesus answered a three part question and it seems to me that the chapter covers the signs of the Lord's return which culminates into the "Consummation of the ages." You must believe the fig tree illustration represents Israel.

There are far too many things in Mathew 24 that just didn't happen in AD70.
