Jerusalem, Rome, Revelation – John’s Apocalypse Written Before 70 A.D.

The fulfilment of these predictions in the Bible, are clearly chronicled by the famous Non-Christian Judaistic Ancient Historian Josephus (A.D. 37-100f), in his work The Jewish War (II:13:2 to VI:9:4).   Writing between A.D. 75 and 79, this Pro-Roman Judaistic Scholar dramatically described the last terrible years of the old Jerusalem (64-70 A.D.).

First.   Jesus and Josephus both depicted the advent of false-prophets during the first century A.D.    Matthew 24:5,11,24 cf. Acts 5:36-39 & Second Peter 1:1 & 2:2,14,20 cf. Josephus’s Wars II:13:5.

Second.   Jesus seems to have predicted the bloody Jerusalem massacres, by the tyrannical Roman Gessius Florus who was Procurator there from A.D. 64 to 66.   And Josephus certainly describes the fulfilment of those events.   Wars II:14:2-9 & II:18:1-7 cf. Matthew 24:9-13 & Mark 13:12 & Luke 21:12-16.
