Jesus Predicts the Fall of Jerusalem


The walls remind us that the city of Jerusalem has been surrounded by walls for its defence since ancient times.  But the walls haven’t always been able to protect the city. During its long history Jerusalem has been attacked 52 times, captured and recaptured 44 times, besieged 23 times, and destroyed twice.

The first time, Jerusalem was destroyed was by a great warrior king, Nebuchadnezzar, and his Babylonian army in 586 BC, just over 2,600 years ago. The Babylonians besieged and destroyed the city, plundered the temple and carried off many of its sacred golden vessels.

The second and last time, Jerusalem was destroyed was in 70 AD, when the Roman general Titus besieged and attacked the city with 4 legions. The Romans totally destroyed the city and the Jewish temple.  It was one of the most brutal, catastrophic, and devastating attacks in history.  Over a million people perished. 

Rome’s destruction of Jerusalem and its temple is one of the darkest chapters in history.  Not only is it a testament of the cruelty and efficiency of the Roman military machine, but also a story of lost opportunities and forgotten warnings.  You see, the Bible clearly predicted the catastrophic leveling of the city.    

In fact, just before his death, Jesus made seven specific and chilling predictions about the destruction of both Jerusalem and its temple. And those predictions carry a special and relevant message for us today.
