13:9 But take heed to yourselves [the early Church, which was 100% Jewish]: for
 they shall deliver you up
[a.] to councils [the Sanhedrin, as well as the council in each synagogue]; and
 in the synagogues
[a.] ye shall be beaten: and
 ye shall be brought before
[a.] rulers and
[11.] for my sake,
[12.] for a testimony
[aa.] against them [this was completely fulfilled in the ministry of the Apostle Paul, but shall have a second fulfillment during the Antichrist Covenant week...the last 7 years of this: the age of grace].
The publishing of the gospel among all nations fixes the fulfillment of this prophecy to the end times
13:10 And the gospel must first be published
 among all nations [before His second coming to the earth].
13:11 But when they [Jews and Gentiles bringing the persecution against Jewish Christians] shall
 lead [you], and
 deliver you up,
[a.] take no thought beforehand
[11.] what ye shall speak,
[b.] neither do ye premeditate: but
[c.] whatsoever shall be given you
[11.] in that hour,
[aa.] that speak ye:
[ab.] for it is not ye that speak,
[111.] but the Holy Ghost.
 the brother shall betray [c/p. Matt. 10:21]
[a.] the brother to death, and
 the father [shall betray]
[a.] the son [to death]; and
 children shall rise up
[a.] against [their] parents,
[11.] and shall cause them
[aa.] to be put to death.
 ye shall be hated of all [men] [Jewish Christians hated by all after the Rapture of the Church]
[a.] for my name's sake [hated for the name of Jesus]: but
[b.] the same shall be saved.
 when ye [Jewish disciples (c/p. Mark 13:3)] shall see
[a.] the abomination of desolation [the Antichrist (Dan. 9:27)],
[11.] spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
[12.] standing where it ought not [in the temple in Jerusalem],
[aa.] (let him that readeth [this prophesy is for a time when the gospel would be published in printed form] understand,) then
 let them that be in Judæa [the remnant of Israel]
 let him that is on the housetop
[a.] not go down into the house,
[b.] neither enter [therein],
[11.] to take any thing out of his house:
 let him that is in the field
[a.] not turn back again
[11.] for to take up his garment.
 woe to them
[a.] that are with child, and to them
[b.] that give suck in those days!
 pray ye that your flight
[a.] be not in the winter.
