1-) Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days;
for there will be great distress upon the land and wrath to this people;
24 and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations;
and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
1-) Those days , being the temples destruction.
24- Jewish exile and Gentile control over Jerusalem until ?
I am interested in reading everyones thoughts on the above.
What will bring an end to the times of the Gentiles over Jerusalem?
Why would that be important regarding the end?
Exile led to Gentiles trampling Jerusalem, so will Jewish return to Jerusalem put an end to the times of the Gentiles? What else could?
The Gospel is to be preached to all Gentiles, and then the end will come. ( The times of the Gentiles wouldnt be fulfilled without this )
This end would then have something to do with Jewish control of Jerusalem.
Luke also mentions that these days of vengeance ( events begining in AD70) were foretold by the Prophets.
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near. 21 Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter the city;
22 because these are days of vengeance, so that all things which are written will be fulfilled.
What Scriptures refer to this ?--latter verses of Deut 28 perhaps.
Please share your thoughts.
