As mentioned in the last post, after Jesus completed His final public address with His lament for Jerusalem in 23:37-39, He and the disciples left the Temple area and walked to the Mount of Olives which overlooks the Temple Mount. Their conversation begins along the way as the disciples call His attention to the Temple:
Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?”he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” (24:1-2)
It is vital that we catch the timing of this: First the lament for Jerusalem, they leave and as they do, the disciples call His attention to the Temple, and He tells them it will be completely destroyed.
