By Don Ruhl

God sent many prophets and apostles to Jerusalem, but the people rejected them all. Finally, He sent His Son to the city, but they treated Him worse than they treated the prophets and apostles. Therefore, He had to destroy the city and it happened in the year 70 by the hands of the Romans. Jesus described the horrors of the siege with these words,

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24.21).

Jerusalem had the greatest opportunity to be a holy city, but it committed some of the worse acts ever on earth, and the city paid for those crimes.
