days/year = 476.06 years. That is 476 years and 22 days added

to 445 B.C. brings us to 31 A.D. We subtract 1 year when we

cross from B.C. to A.D. This brings us into the first week of

April, 30 A.D., which is the appointed day for Messiah to ride

into Jerusalem.

It is during this week that Jesus said,

“If you, even you, had

only known on this day what would bring you peace —but

now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you

when your enemies will build an embankment against you and

to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They

will not leave one stone on another, because you did not rec-

(Luke 19:42-44).

From history, we know that the above days, of which

Christ spoke, were fulfilled when Titus destroyed the temple in

70 A.D. We see in this passage that the 70 A.D. event had

been prophesied, and now understand that the prophecy was

spoken in 30 A.D. This passage shows a relationship between

30 A.D. and 70 A.D., when prophecy was fulfilled only 40

years after it was spoken—a quick fulfillment of Biblical proph-

ecy. When Messiah was asked by His disciples in Matthew 24,

“…when will this happen…”

(the stones not being left upon

another), the Lord gave them several prophecies.

The destruction of the temple was the prophecy that was

only 40 years away. He also spoke of several end time events.

God gave us one prophecy that happened quickly. This way,

we of so little faith can believe that the distant prophecies will

occur as well. The reality is that virtually all of the different end

time events revealed in scripture have been shown to be sepa-
