Not One Stone

    Matthew 24:1-2 says, “Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. [2] But he answered them, “You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”

    The disciples were excited and proud to show Jesus the Jewish temple. Yet Jesus was not all that impressed. Jesus told them that there would not be one stone left upon another. The temple would be thrown down. Jesus made this statement in about 30 A.D.

    In 70 AD, Rome attacked Jerusalem with great force and destruction. They spent particular attention to the temple which they completely destroyed not leaving one stone upon another. Once again the prophecies of the Bible hold true.

    These prophecies give us confidence that the Bible is true. They give us confidence that what the Bible teaches about heaven and hell is true. We can rest assured that what God says will happen will actually happen.
