Besides the application of this term to any time of distress, and its special reference to this dispensation, respecting which it is said, "In the world ye shall have tribulation," John 16:33 — the Lord spoke of a distinct period of distress, such as never had been, or should be again. Matthew 24:21-29 . These verses refer to a great tribulation that shall fall upon the Jews in a future day: cf. Jeremiah 30:7 and Daniel 12:1 . In Revelation 7:14 a great multitude is referred to that have come out of the great tribulation, but these are from the nations, hence this tribulation is not the same as that which will fall specially on the Jews, though both may take place at the same time. In Revelation 2:22 a 'great tribulation' is spoken of, but it is doubtless general, and not the same as the above.
