A look at possible layout of Jerusalem during Jesus’ time, 40 years before its destruction by Titus Flavius and the Roman Army in 70 AD.
Jerusalem was leveled after a months long siege, but even before the Romans arrived, multiple Jewish factions inside Jerusalem had turned on one another for control of the city.
The Temple Mount had become a fierce battleground among three different gangs, in what could be described as an “Abomination of Desolation.”
Flavius Josephus, the former Jewish general turned client of the Flavian dynasty, recorded the cruelty and horror inside Jerusalem’s walls, stating “neither did any other city ever suffer such miseries, nor did any age ever breed a generation more fruitful in wickedness than this was, from the beginning of the world” (The Jewish War, Book 5)
According to Preterists, these events fulfilled Jesus’ prophecy that “there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Considering how multiple nations threatened each other with nuclear weapons this week, from Russia to Pakistan to North Korea, let’s hope the Preterists are wrong, because we might need Jesus’ help very soon.
This is the hot new video in Russia right now…
