“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
King James Version (KJV)
24:21 Then shall be great tribulation - Have not many things spoken in the chapter, as well as in #Mark 13:14 |&c., Luke 21:21 &c. a farther and much more extensive meaning than has been yet fulfilled?
Mt 24:21 Great tribulation. The account given by Josephus, the Jewish historian who witnessed and recorded the war, is almost an echo of the predictions of Christ. Women ate their own children from starvation; the Jews within the city fought each other as well as the Roman army; on August 10, A.D. 70, the city was stormed and there was a universal massacre; 1,100,00 persons perished, and 100,000 survivors were sold into slavery.
