The Destruction of the Jewish Temple
In Fulfilment of Jesus’ Prophecy
Matthew 24:1-2 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
s Jesus prophesied, the temple was thrown down, actually torn apart stone by stone.
The event is recorded in secular history. In 70 A.D., the armies of Roman Emperor Vespasian marched into Judea under General Titus and crushed the rebellion of the Jews, destroyed Jerusalem, and burned the temple.
The fire caused the gold leaf on the temple ceiling to melt. The melting gold flowed down the walls, settling into crevices. The Romans then pried apart the stones to remove the gold, until literally "not one stone was left standing upon another"!
