Woe, vv. 19-22

19 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a sabbath. 21 For at that time there will be great suffering, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.

Jesus warns his listeners that as folks flee from this desolation, things will be really difficult.

Verse 22 is especially puzzling. I wonder what Jesus means when speaking of “the elect.”
