The Olivet Discourse and the Destruction of Jerusalem in Prophecy

     It grieved the Saviour that the Scribes and Pharisees were not entering into His Kingdom.   But it grieved Him probably still more that they were also  hindering others too from entering.    

     "Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!" — said Jesus.   "For you encompass sea and land to make one convert; and, when he has been made, you make him twofold more the child of Hell than yourselves!"3042 

     It grieved the Saviour that those Judaistic Scribes and Pharisees were  children of the Devil,3043 on the road to Hell.   But it grieved Him still more that the Gentile3044 converts whom those Scribes and Pharisees had seduced unto Judaism, were twice as bad as they themselves and –through their own heathen depravity plus the influence of the Scribes and Pharisees upon them — thus doubly damned.3045
