The Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the Tenth Legion of the Roman Army. Under the command of Titus the son of Vespasian about 2nd September AD70. All the Christians had fled to Pella so none were killed in the onslaught and destruction of Jerusalem.
In the process of capturing Jerusalem over one and a half million Jewish people died – men women and children. Because the temple caught fire and the gold ran into the stonework. Titus ordered the stonework pulled apart so the gold could be recovered.
When Vespasian (AD69- AD79) was the Caesar or Emperor in Rome.
The Romans later captured Masada in AD73.
Romans were now in control again.
Jerusalem was attacked by Rome because Israel as conquered state rebelled.
This happened after most of the New Testament had been written.
Read Luke 21:5-38 – daytime in the Temple to many disciples and “beforehand” and refers to the first generation of disciples. While Matthew 24:1-51 is at night to his own select team of disciples. And is about the last generation of believers.
The Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the Tenth Legion of the Roman Army under the command of Titus, the son of Vespasian, about 2 September AD70. Vespasian was the Caesar or Emperor in Rome from AD69-AD79.
The Romans captured Masada in AD73.
Romans were now in control again.
Jerusalem was attacked and destroyed by Rome because Israel as a conquered state had rebelled.
This happened after most of the New Testament had been written but was foretold both by Daniel (9:26) and by Jesus.
The Christians had fled Jerusalem from AD62 to Pella, one of the ten towns in the Decapolis, and doing so were not killed by the Roman army. The book of Hebrews may have helped in getting the Jews who believed in the Messiah to leave Jerusalem so missed being killed by the Romans when the sacked the city of Jerusalem in AD70.
