27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
27 Verse 27. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and
shineth even unto the west] It is worthy of remark that our Lord,
in the most particular manner, points out the very march of the
Roman army: they entered into Judea on the EAST, and carried on
their conquest WESTWARD, as if not only the extensiveness of the
ruin, but the very route which the army would take, were intended
in the comparison of the lightning issuing from the east, and
shining to the west.
