Titus Destroyed Jerusalem

 Unrest for the Jewish People and Rome
The empire of Rome did not want to be bothered with Judea because they believed it was a worthless province that was only good for creating problems. Judea did offer some benefits since it connected the various parts of the Middle East and Asia together but they still did not think much of the territory. The Jewish people had a strange religion which only worshiped one god and they produced many religious teachers who caused disturbances among the people. A religious teacher named Jesus Christ was executed in Judea by the Roman governor Pilate and the Jewish people.

Jerusalem,Destroyed_by_Titus_70_AD
Jerusalem, Destroyed

After his death a new sect of Judaism known as Christianity emerged shortly after his death. Jesus prophesied that the Temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed and his words came true about forty years after his death. Since the time of Jesus’ death many Zealots were becoming bold with their attacks against Rome. In 66 A.D. they managed to stir up the people and lead them into revolt against Rome.

The Roman emperor of the time of this revolt was Nero and he had encountered the Christians since the time that Paul had arrived in Rome to plead his case before Caligula or Claudius. Nero did not like the Christians and he liked the Jews even less so he sent Nero sent Titus’ father Vespasian to quell the revolt. Nero died at the time the Romans were retaking Judea. Vespasian became embroiled in the intrigues of who was to be emperor – known as “The Year of the Four Emperors.” He would entrust the continuation of the Judean campaign to his son Titus.

Titus Starts to Gain Control

Titus arrived in Judea with his father Vespasian who was a leading general in the Roman Empire. Once he arrived in Jerusalem he began to make his way toward Jerusalem. He conquered many rebellious Jewish sects along the way. He managed to capture the northern half of Judea and forced many Jewish people to surrender without a fight. Vespasian had to return home to Rome after Nero committed suicide and left his son Titus in control.

Many Jewish people fled to Jerusalem and when they did they had started to fight among themselves. The Zealots and other notorious Jewish factions began to kill any Jewish person who wanted to surrender. They managed to take over the city and they fortified the area. They fought a Civil War against themselves. Titus waited for the outcome of this situation before he acted. Titus then moved his forces against Jerusalem and the defenders who were fighting a desperate battle. The rebel Jewish factions were forcing many people to fight even when it would have made more sense to surrender.

They ended up burning the city’s food supplies to force the people to fight on and they cut off all trade and commerce into the city. Many Jewish people were starving during the siege and many were also being killed from the Roman legions. Titus lay siege for  years until the city finally collapsed in 70 A.D. which is when this event is found on the Biblical Timeline Chart with World History. The temple at Jerusalem was destroyed during the siege and those who were able to escape fled to a Jewish fortress called Masada or they escaped the country.

Masada fell some time later in 73 A.D. and with its fall the Jewish rebellion came to an end. The remaining Jewish people were allowed to live in Judea but many of them were scattered across the world. Some were forced into slavery and others were forced to live in other parts of the Roman Empire. Titus had returned to Rome in 70 A.D. after he conquered Jerusalem. He was given a triumph or military celebration for his victory and was considered a great Roman general. Titus eventually became an emperor of Rome.

  1. I am interested in this topic of world history at the time of the bible

  2. I want to learn more about this biblical history

  3. The Romans destroyed the city of Jerusalem as well as the 2nd Temple. Neither of these, however, can be considered ultimate. Jerusalem could be and in fact was rebuilt; and as the Temple was the result of human construction then in theory it could also be rebuilt.
    What cannot be duplicated, however, is the Jewish priesthood. From the time of Moses, by the command of God, all priests had to trace their lineage back to Aaron, the brother of Moses and by the Word of God the first priest.
    The records of that lineage were destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. Thus, the obligatory mandatory lineage for consecration as a priest with Temple privileges is lost forever. Unless God re-establishes a new line of succession then there is no legitimate candidate for consecration as a Temple priest.
    To do so without that express permission from God would be to create a nation of fraudulent priests.
    THIS THE DILEMMA FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A 3RD TEMPLE!

    1. They may not be able to determine who can be priest, but the Bible does prophecy that the temple will be rebuilt.

      1. wrong, it’s not written in the bible. John the baptist was the last high priest. preaching that all should repent. making a way for Jesus Christ.. with him dieing on the cross this gave us acces to a new temple. your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.

  4. I’m sure many will not believe me I and this is not the whole truth this is only it as I have managed to uncover thus far but they say the prophet Muhammad said submit and Jesus said decide I have studied History Science religion every facet of human understanding and consciousness and quantum physics and quantum entanglement nuclear physics and everything from Tesla Oppenheimer and any and everyone I could ever find any information on I know a great deal about the Romans at least as far as what people are willing to print in history books but by understanding Psychology it is very possible to read between the lines of the history we have and see what most likely would have really happened after all they were all people human history is the history of people we haven’t changed much so with a great deal of certainty it is possible to read between the lines of history and see the truth if your eyes are unclouded by hate and preconceptions brought on by those who were able to record history The Victors and the government’s they were under the Bible was written in Greek the Roman religion at the time the same family Constantine was a member of who truly started Christianity in the form we understand now mainly Roman Catholic Church the fact that the name of the people who killed Jesus is in the name of the church that all Christianity stems from says a lot Julius Caesar it’s going to have a child with Cleopatra they did have a child it would have been the pharaoh of Egypt and the emperor of Rome the equivalent of the superpowers at the time it is understandable Octavian what happened seen his power threatened and would not have been the legitimate ruler of rome and the most common reoccurring theme you will ever find in history is those in power wish to stay in power and will use all that they have available to make this happen he ordered every male child of a certain age from newborn to two possibly 5 years of age to be killed in order to protect his Rule and kill Caesar and Cleopatra’s son Jesus Christ in the language Bible was originally written in Greek translates to the Savior Messiah no one would have named their child such a name in all likelihood no person by this name ever existed and not in that time a good teachings and points from Christianity as all religions should not be disregarded however people always misuse things that hold power do onto others as you would have done onto yourself and many other things it is said Jesus said is the real message and the importance of this cannot be overstated but the second coming there’s so many people think will Herald the end of the world that’s already happened it was talking about Caesar flavius Titus and his military campaign if you research his military history you will find at least 48 parallels between the Bible and the events in his life the Jews are the most persecuted group of humans in all of history he had the Bible written in the form we know and understand it as the Old Testament to Force the Jewish people to no longer fight and rebelled against his rule I have been fighting and involved in war my whole life I have come to see the lengths politicians will go to to bring an end to the violence so that they can then enslave and use people whether Jesus existed or not or if the Bible is relevant to your time or not is not the point is no man can or will know the true creator and God or the nature of such a thing anyone who says they do is lying do you think if someone really knew the truth about God they would tell you without wanting something in return like the Bible says Satan became jealous of mankind because we have a soul one thing I am sure of science cannot explain why people care and why their heart leads them in the direction it does I have asked God many times to prove to me that he she as if such words could even apply to such a Being is real my name translates into proof of God in this world I’ve come to find it a befitting name my whole life it seems like the Creator sends me where I am needed I have taken care of stroke victims the poor fought against oppression protected animals and all of God’s creations and come to see myself as no greater but equal to every form of life that exists I do not believe because I am a human or because I think I’m smarter does that means I have greater importance did any other creature from a ant to a blue whale the truth will set you free freedom the ideals that the nation of America my home country was founded on not the country it is today but the country it should be and what the Declaration States for every man and woman to be in control of Their Own Destiny and free to make their own decisions that is what is important until all peoples of all countries stop engaging in violent meaningless struggles that pulled the innocent children animals in all of God’s creations into completely unjust turmoil and pain is brought to an end God’s dream for mankind and the real point of our existence can never be realized I have was raised by a Marine and he taught me what the true definition of a warrior is it is a person who takes up violence to end violence not someone who is used or uses violence the further an objective that always ends in money one way or another that is why the saying money is the root of all evil is true but you must understand a great deal about the world to see what that really means the truth is love those who love you be kind make the world a better place than it was when you got to it and you will live a life that was not wasted equality and peace between humans cannot exist if we do not treat each other equally it does not matter if Jesus was real or not the idea is more important than the man just like the hot deals of my country or more important than the country itself there have been many men in history who tried to make the world better and unite everyone I think we can all agree Martin Luther King was a very kind intelligent and understanding man I am still waiting on his dream to be realized and I will do everything I can before I die to see that it is but I will not force my opinions or ideas upon anyone a person’s beliefs are theirs and theirs alone anyone who tries to change what you believe is only trying to control you do not let others take a things such as history religion and fear and use it to control you speak the truth no matter what it leads to as far as punishment from others be brave and just an upright that God may love you defend the innocent protect the weak and help those who are less fortunate than yourself and there is no reason to fear anything including death I have far more friends in the next world than this one I do not fear death but I do not rush towards it either until my work is done here I’m just chilling waiting on my next directive from the Creator I understand if anyone finds it’s hard to believe things that I’m saying but I do not mean them out of hatred or to question or confront anyone’s beliefs I only wish the peaceful world at the Creator meant for all of us and all life to be realized if I had to guess what the meaning of human life and existence is we are the only creatures on this Earth capable doctoring and healing all other creatures I believe the meaning of life is to help all of God’s creations not destroy them I hope for Anyone who reads this that it in some way May help you or makes some sense of the world we find ourselves in together may you all find some measure of peace and happiness on this Earth God bless all people on this Earth and may you bless with the gifts the good Lord has bestowed on you a whole life that you can
