What Jesus predicts here is actually what happened: the Temple in Jerusalem–a stunning architectural and engineering achievement–was pulled down, stone by stone, by the Romans in AD 70.
When we were in Israel earlier this year, we visited Jerusalem and stood on the ruins of the Temple. It is amazing to walk on those ancient stones and know that you are walking on the exact same stones on which Jesus himself walked. And it’s even more amazing to consider that Jesus is actually the true Temple, the place where Heaven and Earth came together.
