The Second Coming (sometimes called the Second Advent or the Parousia) is a concept in Christianity regarding a future return of Jesus to Earth after his "first coming" and ascension to heaven about two thousand years ago. The coming will be sudden and unexpected ( Matt 25:13 ; Luke 12:40 ), but when it happens it will be like lightning, obvious to all ( Matt 24:27 ; Luke 17:24 ). Jesus makes it clear that his coming will take place at a time when people will not be expecting it ( Matthew 24:36 Matthew 24:44 ). His call for watchfulness is important ( Matt 24:42-51 ), for it indicates that the coming of the Son of Man has decisive importance. Earlier there had been a request that the places of honor in the kingdom should be given to the sons of Zebedee. Jesus did not deny that there would be such places, but said they were for those for whom the Father had prepared them ( Matt 20:20-23.
