PREFACE: History      records      few      events      more      generally      interesting      than      the      destruction      of     Jerusalem,   and      the      subversion      of      the      Jewish      state,      by      the      arms      of      the      Romans.     —      Their      intimate   connexion         with         the         dissolution         of         the         Levitical         economy,        and         the         establishment         of   Christianity      in      the      world;      the      striking      verification      which     they      afford      of      so      many      of      the   prophecies,      both      of      the      Old      and      New      Testament,     and      the      powerful      arguments      of      the   divine      authority      of      the      Scriptures      which      are     thence      derived;      the      solemn      warnings      and   admonitions      which      they      hold      out      to      all     nations,      but      especially      such      as      are      favoured      with   the      light      and      blessings      of     REVELATION;      together      with      the      impressive      and      terrific      grandeur   of      the      events     themselves–are      circumstances      which      must      always      insure      to      the      subject      of   the        following         pages         more         than         ordinary         degrees         of         interest         and         importance.        Many   eminent      and      learned      men      have      employed      their      pens      in      the      illustration      of      it;     but      the      fruits   of      their      labours      are,      for      the      most      part,      contained      in      large      and     expensive      works,      out      of   the      reach      of      numbers,      to      whom      the      discussion      might     prove      equally      interesting      and   improving.         For         the         use         and         gratification         of         such,        the         present         Treatise,         in         a         more   accessible      and      familiar      form,      is      diffidently     offered      to      the      public.      In      order      that      it      might      be   better      adapted      for      the      general     reader,      critical      inquiries      and      tedious      details      are      equally   avoided;      but      it      has      been     the      care      of      the      writer      not      to      omit      any      important      fact      or   argument      that,      in      his     opinion,      tended      to      elucidate      the      subject.      Countenanced      by      the   example      of      many     respectable      names,      he      has      ventured      to      introduce      the      extraordinary   prodigies,     which,      according      to      Josephus,      preceded      the      destruction      of      the      Holy      City.      He   has     also      added      a      few      sentences      in      their      defense,      but      he      does      not      intend      thereby      to express his unqualified admission of their genuineness. Upon      the      execution      of      the      tract,      generally,      the      public      will      determine.      Usefulness     is      the   writer’s      main      object;      and      if      a      perusal      of      it      shall      contribute,      under      the     DIVINE      BLESSING,   to      confirm      the      wavering      faith      of      only      one      Christian,      or      to      shake     the      vain      confidence      of      a   single      Unbeliever,      his      labour      will      be      abundantly     rewarded.  —G.H.,  LONDON,  1st.  month, 1805.

THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM

THE         goodness         of         God         stamps         all         his         proceedings.         It         has         pleased         Him         not        only         to   communicate      to      mankind      a      revelation,      which,      to      the      pious      mind,      bears      in     its      internal   texture      its      own      evidence      and      recommendation,      but      also      to      accompany     it      with      such   external         proofs         of         a         sacred         origin,         as         seem         calculated         to        strike,         with         irresistible   conviction,      even      those      who      are      least      disposed      to      admit     the      truth      of      the      Holy      Scriptures.   In      order      to      evidence      their      divine      authenticity,     God      has      done      as      much      as      man      could   possibly      have      required.      [1]      For,      supposing     that      it      had      been      referred      to      mankind      to      have   prescribed      for      their      own     satisfaction,      and      that      of      their      prosperity,      the      credentials      which   His      messengers     should      bring      with      them,      in      order      to      authenticate      the      divinity      of      their   mission,     could      the      wisest      and      most      skeptical      amongst      men      have      proposed,      for      this purpose, any thing more conclusive than, Read More: The Destruction of Jerusalem – By George Peter Holford (Written in 1805) The Destruction of Jerusalem – Full Textbook Online The Destruction of Jerusalem – Full Textbook Online at Biblical Fulfillment by Jessie Mills, Ph.D. The Destruction of Jerusalem – Full Textbook E-Sword The Destruction of Jerusalem - Full Textbook Facebook
