In Mt 24: 18  Jesus warned that his disciples would not return from the field to get something he left indoors.  This is supposed to happen at the second coming of Christ, according to many interpreters. But if that were so, how silly the warning would be. Why? Because here would be people with glorified bodies, able to rise into the air to meet the Lord as He comes.  Who would care about any such things? He would be so transformed that his interest would be in the Lord, his new body, resurrected people, etc.  Obviously, then, the passage doesn’t speak of the second coming, but of the destruction of Jerusalem.
