Talmud – 2 Timothy 3:2-5

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power” (2 Timothy 3:2-5).

From Abraham Cohen’s Everyman’s Talmud, page 349, Bab. Talmud Peshaim 98a, this is what the Jewish scholars believed about the last days.

“In the generation in which the Son of David (Yeshua) will come, youths will insult their elders, the old will have to stand up before the young, a daughter will revolt against her mother … and a son will feel no shame in the presence of his father …. Meeting places for study will be turned into brothels, the learning of the scribes will decay and sin-fearing men will be condemned.”
