Endurance (Mk 13:13-13:13)

“You will be hated

By all,

Because of my name.

But the one

Who endures

To the end

Will be saved.”

 

καὶ ἔσεσθε μισούμενοι ὑπὸ πάντων διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου· ὁ δὲ ὑπομείνας εἰς τέλος, οὗτος σωθήσεται.

 

There is something similar in Matthew, chapter 10:22, and in Luke, chapter 21:19, but in a more succinct way.  Mark indicated that endurance was important.  Jesus said that they would be hated (καὶ ἔσεσθε μισούμενοι) by all people (ὑπὸ πάντων) because of his name (διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου).  Then he said that the one who endured or stayed firm to the end would be saved (ὁ δὲ ὑπομείνας εἰς τέλος, οὗτος σωθήσεται).
