Tisha B'Av

Right now, as I post this, we are in the final hours of Tisha B'Av, which is a day to commemorate the destruction of both the first and the second Temples.

Given the current unrest in Israel with Hezbollah, it is well worth to take the time to reflect. It's always worth the time to reflect and mourn what should be mourned. But it becomes more poignant.

It is customary to read the book of Lamentations, so here is a link to the book.

It is also worth noting that Y'shua prophecied the destruction of the Second Temple.

Remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

it's worth nothing that the destruction was stated going all the way back to Moses...

Please give the reference. Since Moses was a prophet, it wouldn't surprise me.

It's also worth noting that Y'shua's prophecy comes with a timeframe element.

Doesn't Jesus also have a time frame element about the end of days. I hardly consider that worth noting. Propably Jesus made some educated guesses about the current sloth of the Jews and given Tenakh precendents; the Jews would be punished once again.

I'm firmly convinced that the timeframe element refers to the destruction of Jerusalem which occured in 70 CE. In other words the "end of the age" not the "end of the world" which it may be mistranslated in some older translations.

If anyone's interested, RC Sproul's "the Last Days According to Jesus" covers that information.
