Not 1 single solitary stone?Lk 21
And while some were talking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and votive gifts, He said,
6 "As for these things which you are looking at, the days will come in which there will not be left one stone upon another which will not be torn down."
7 They questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, when therefore will these things happen? And what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?"
---Im thinking of the wailing wall that is still standing, that Jewish people see as Holy...and part of the temple area.
Does it just refer to the temple?
---If it does, then why did Jesus say----"do you see these things" ?
Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him.
2 And He said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down."
What are these other structures/buildings , other than the temple itself?
No doubt that this began in AD 70, but im seeing another fulfillment, because of this scripture, that refers to the whole city.;
41 When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it,
42 saying, "If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
43 "For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side,
44 and they will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation."
It seems that the whole city of Jerusalem is not going to have one stone upon another-----------which raises the question, -why would an army , like Rome ,come in and totally demolish ever single structure---sounds like hard work, which is why the Roman legions didnt fulfill it....................(.no gold in that wailing wall.)
Modern day technology can make easy work of this destruction.
