The 3 1/2 year siege of Jerusalem (Documentary) 66 – 70 A.D. The first Jewish-Roman War

Photo credit The first Jewish-Roman war

In 66 A.D.  General Vespasian of Rome, under orders from Nero Caesar, invaded Judea. After the death of Nero, Vespasian went on to become emperor of Rome in 68 A.D. and his son, Titus, took over the Judean campaign against the rebelling Jews. Titus sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D. and then went through the rest of Judea killing all Jewish rebels until finally ariving Masada in 73 A.D. where he destroyed the last rebel stronghold. Titus then returned to Rome and became emperor himself on June 24th, 79 A.D. upon the death of his father Vespasian.

The destruction of Jerusalem, and of the Jewish temple was, of course, all prdicted by both the Prophet Daniel and by Jesus Christ.

Here are just a couple of Jesus Christ’s prophecies concerning these things:

„Then, as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and donations, [Jesus] said, „These things which you see—the days will come in which not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be thrown down.”” -Luke 21:5-6

„”But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”” -Luke 21:20-24

Quo vadis?

Quo Vadis?

O poveste cutremuratoare despre puterea care este invinsa de credinta, despre credinta care aduce dragostea si despre dragostea care a schimbat Roma din timpul lui Nero.
Ofiterul roman Marcus Vinicius, care tocmai se intorsese dintr-un razboi din Asia Minor, ajunge acasa la unchiul sau Petronius, prieten al imparatului Nero, un estet si iubitor de arta. Vinicius ii destainuie lui Petronius ca s-a indragostit de o fata frumoasa si misterioasa, pe nume Ligia, pe care a intâlnit-o in casa generalului Aulus Plaucius. Dorind sa-l ajute pe tânar, Petronius ii propune sa-i faca o vizita lui Plaucius. Acolo, Petronius realizeaza ca Vinicius are dreptate; el decide sa-l ajute pe nepotul sau. Vinicius si Ligia se intâlnesc in gradina, unde fata deseneaza un peste pe nisip.

Ben Hur – Online Book

Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is a novel by Lew Wallace published on

First edition, first state of Ben-Hur: A Tale ...

Image via Wikipedia

November 12, 1880 by Harper & Brothers.

The novel was a phenomenal best-seller, surpassing Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852) as the best-selling American novel and retained this distinction until the 1936 publication of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind. Book sales then surpassed Gone with the Wind, following the release of the highly successful 1959 MGM film adaptation; the film winning eleven Academy Awards.[1] The book was the first work of fiction to be blessed by a Pope, receiving benediction from Pope Leo XIII.[2]

The story tells of the adventures of Judah Ben-Hur, Jewish prince and merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 1st century. Ben-Hur’s childhood friend Messala arrives back home as an ambitious commanding officer of the Roman legions. They come to realize how much they have changed and now hold very different views and aspirations. During a military parade a brick falls from the roof of Judah’s house and barely misses the Roman governor. Although Messala knows that they are not guilty, he condemns the Ben-Hur family. Without trial, Judah is sent to work until death as a Roman galley slave, his mother and sister are thrown into prison and all the family property is confiscated. Through fate and good fortune, Judah survives and manages to return to Jerusalem, to seek revenge against his one-time friend and redeem his family. Running in parallel with Ben-Hur’s narrative is the unfolding story of Jesus,[3] who comes from the same region and is a similar age, mirroring themes of betrayal, conviction and redemption. Ben-Hur witnesses and is inspired by the rise of the Christ figure and his following who challenge Roman tyranny and talk of keys to a greater kingdom.

The name „Ben Hur” derives from the Hebrew for „Son of white linen”.
