-From.What Happened In 70 A.D.?.by Edward E. Stevens:."Emmanuel had predicted all these things about 40 years before. All His predictions came true."

The Jewish nation and sacrificial system was so completely dismantled that the Jewish people have never been able to reestablish the temple and sacrifices in any permanent way since:.Daniel 12:7.

Since the Mosaic Law could not be kept after the destruction, the controversy over circumcision and law keeping immediately subsided. The Jewish nation was so completely destroyed that it would never again come into view in a meaningful way.

The old covenant which was a good thing at the time, but became severely corrupted, was 'done like dinner' and finished for all time! The spiritual new covenant based on so much better promises.(Hebrews 8:1-13).had begun and in a location where it couldn't be corrupted as was the previous one! What location was this?

Many rabbis refer to 70 A.D. as "The End of Biblical Judaism". This date was important for Christians as well. God was showing in all this that the way the Jewish leaders of the time handled His now defunct Old Testament law was a disgrace:.Isaiah 65:1-18. But some of them did not.

"Josephus talks about pools of blood and intense fires similar to the descriptions in.(Revelation 14:20).and other passages. Didn't Emmanuel predict that these kinds of things would happen?:.Luke 21:11,25-27. Josephus' history furnishes numerous other insights into the nature of the war and its significance for both Jews and Christians. But, not only Josephus records these things! The Roman historian Tacitus and the Christian historian Eusebius, both say these things happened! The Talmud records similar things as well.

"Christians had been looked upon as being just another sect of Judaism. Jews of other sects.(Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, etc.).had severely persecuted Christians in the attempt to stop them before they were firmly established. But A.D. 70 changed all that. After A.D. 70, Christians were no longer considered just another sect of the Jews. Jews of all the other sects had taken part in the revolt against Rome, but not the Christian Jews. Remembering Emmanuel's prediction of these things and His warning not to get caught-up in them, the Jewish Christians fled across the Jordan river to Pella. By not participating in the revolt they immediately distinguished themselves from the persecuting Jews. Christians were building a spiritual empire, not a physical one, a point we would do well to remember today in view of the Zionist appeals for support."
