Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

In Matthew, the equivalent passage has three questions, whereas the account of Luke has but two. When the disciples ask of what sign there will be that these things are all come to pass (completed, fulfilled). Jesus answers the "when?" question with the overthrow and destruction of the city and temple by Titus in AD70.

Verse 24, covers or seperates a huge length of time from the destruction and necessary flight, through to the very end of the world, and Jesus' second coming and the day of reckoning. This latter period and the description of signs you may recognise also from Revelation. These latter signs do not represent the same period when Titus destroyed the city. However, the physical temple of stone is still being torn down even today (continually) whilst Christ reigns but is physically absent. As the physical dwelling place for God on earth, the "time of the gentiles" will be completed when the next temple (The very person of God dwelling among us) arrives.
