The Feast of Tabernacles relates to a harvest. IE: suntelia seems to be the word one uses to speak of a harvest.

How do you understand the sunteleia at Mt 24:3 and Mt 13:40, as a period of time or as an end (a point in time)?

As to Matthew 24:3 I just checked NASB and they have "end" but they have footnote of "Or, consummation". So they seem to leave either reading as a possibility in terms of the semantic domain and syntax. So 24:3 seems un-compelling either way. But since Matthew 13:40 seems to be an open and shut case of referring to the consummation (the denouement), I think and refers there to the consummation/denouement (IE: the "period of the end" or "finale").

Note: Not of the "end of the world (planet)" but rather "the end of the age [of earthly Jerusalem, the temple and the old covenant]".
