70 AD – BY NNADIKE JEREMIAH NNADIKE
WRITTEN BY NNADIKE JEREMIAH NNADIKE
The destruction of the temple, the exiles of the ancient Jews from the land of Israel, and
the abomination of desolation which the prophet Daniel and the apostles spoke of in their books.
All these events can be summed up in the words of the year 70 AD, we know that the apostles and the disciples of Christianity were prosecuted and many were executed, but many do not know the events that transpired afterwards or all the things that happened or the prophecies written in the Hebrew scriptures concerning it.
So we begin in 45-50 AD the apostles and disciples were preaching the gospel of the Jewish messiah in the territories of the roman empire, going from city to city from the reign of Emperor Claudius 41-54 AD to the reign of Emperor Nero 54-68 AD, but the persecution actually began during the reign of Emperor Nero, after the events of 64 AD (the burning of Rome), which is believed to have been ordered by Nero himself seeing the growing influence of Christianity in Rome.
This led to a chain of events from 64-70 AD which involved mass persecution and execution of Christians and the apostles.
The rebellion of the Jews against the Romans in 66 AD (the first of the roman-jewish wars) and the eventual defeat, enslavement an destruction of Judea from 70-73 AD by roman general Vespasian and his son Titus.
The arc of Titus, created in commemoration of Rome’s triumph over Judea.
In all these events the most surprising/interesting or my main point would be that all these events were prophesied or predicted in the Hebrew scriptures by both the accounts of the disciples of the Jewish messiah, and the prophet Daniel.
“And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”
“And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
Yeah….. That’s it.
