THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM

An Absolute and Irresistible

PROOF OF THE DIVINE ORIGIN OF CHRISTIANITY

Including a narrative of the calamities which befel the Jews so far
as they tend to verify our Lord’s predictions relative to that event.

By George Peter Holford
(Written in 1805)

“I consider the Prophecy relative to the destruction of the Jewish nation, if there were nothing else to support Christianity, as absolutely irresistible.” –Mr. Erskine’s Speech, at the Trial of Williams, for publishing Paine’s Age of Reason

IN THE AUGUST 2003 edition of Pre-Trib Perspectives, edited by Dr. Thomas Ice and Dr. Tim LaHaye, there are two or three statements that to me seem rather odd.

Most Futurists Are Unrealized Preterists

Most Futurists Are Unrealized Preterists

THE SYRIAC VERSION OF THE APOCALYPSE

Dissertation and Translation by John Gwynn

Murdock Syriac (5th Century)

“The Revelation, which was made by God to John the Evangelist, in the island of Patmos, to which he was banished by Nero the Emperor.”

THE REVELATION WHICH WAS MADE UNTO JUHANON THE EVANGELIST, FROM ALOHA, IN PATHAMON THE ISLAND, WHITHER HE HAD BEEN CAST BY NERO CAESAR.
