The Roman Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
In the year 70 A.D., the Roman army, led by Titus, attacked, conquered, and utterly destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the Second Temple. This was the decisive battle of the First Jewish-Roman War. The attack culminated with the complete destruction of the Jewish Temple, which made it the second time a Jewish Temple was laid waste by a foreign army. The Holy Scriptures offer very little insight as to the events surrounding the Roman seige upon Jerusalem, although Jesus prophesized of its destruction before His death and resurrection. Even so, Josephus, acting as a mediator for the Romans, gives an eyewitness account of the events surrounding Jerusalem's destruction in his book The Wars of the Jews or History of the Destruction of Jerusalem.
