Siege of Jerusalem 70 AD – Great Jewish Revolt DOCUMENTARY

Siege of Jerusalem 70 AD – Great Jewish Revolt DOCUMENTARY

Rome’s polytheistic religious practices
were remarkably tolerant for the time, and throughout the centuries even incorporated
many deities of their former enemies. However, the Romans always experienced problems with
Monotheism. The most prominent monotheistic group in the early Roman Empire were the Jews.
This enduring people, motivated by their religion, would be a consistent thorn in the side of
Roman leaders for centuries. One of the most infamous episodes of violence between Rome
and Judaism would be the Jewish Revolt of 66-74 AD, culminating in the capture of Jerusalem
and the destruction of the Second Temple. After a rebellion against the declining Seleucid
Empire, the Hasmonean dynasty [hasma’nian] came to power in Judea during 146 BC. In 67
BC two brothers, Hyrcanus and Aristobulus drove the realm into civil war. To the north,
Roman general Pompey had been finishing up the Mithridatic Wars, and in 63 BC thrust
south along the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. Upon his arrival in Damascus, he intervened
in the civil war on behalf of Hyrcanus, captured Jerusalem and eventually made Judea a client
kingdom. After a brief Parthian occupation, Rome captured
the city again in 37 BC, and installed their client Herod as king. In 4 BC he perished,
and Judea became a Roman province. Imperial authority in the region leaned heavily on
the local elites, but they often lacked the confidence of the wider Jewish population,
resulting in near perpetual strife. Throughout the early first century, Jewish frustration
grew, and they chafed under the Roman boot. This resulted in increasingly violent actions,
perpetrated by sects such as the infamous Jewish Sicarii.
Judea was a powder keg – a tangle of class, ethnic and religious divisions. In 66 BC a
Greek mob profaned the Caesarea synagogue, and that led to riots among the infuriated
Jewish population. Meanwhile in Jerusalem, Roman procurator Gessius Florus chose this
inopportune moment to collect overdue taxes. In an unwise move, he did this by plundering
17 talents of silver and gold from the treasury of the Second Temple. Reacting to this, some
young and bold Jews mocked Florus by begging for spare change in the name of the apparently
‘poverty stricken’ procurator. Infuriated, Florus executed thousands.
When he moved to bring in reinforcements, the Jews began to resist. Overwhelmed by the
local population, the Roman soldiers retreated to the citadel and the Great Jewish revolt
began. The members of the radical Jewish sect Sicarii then marched to the fortress of Masada,
where they proceeded to overwhelm and massacre the 700 strong garrison.
Meanwhile in Jerusalem, the soldiers who had withdrawn to the palace sued for terms, but
were massacred when they tried to surrender their weapons. The rival Jewish factions united,
brutally capturing the fortress of Kypros and securing the surrender of Machaerus. Tensions
among the disparate populations erupted as well. Greek mobs would massacre Jews in cities
such as Ascalon, Caesarea and Tyre, while Jewish prowled the region and
retaliated. The Roman Empire could not allow such defiance,
and the proconsul of Syria, Cestius Gallus, marched south with 30 thousand troops. Gallus
sought to seize of Jerusalem in order to restore order, but the siege failed, and the legions
were subsequently ambushed at the Beth Horon pass as they retreated to the coast. Lightly
armed Jewish rebels, wielding javelins, slings and bows, encircled them and inflicted huge
losses. Legio XII Fulminata was annihilated, the army’s siege weapons were captured,
and the legionary aquila eagle standard was lost. Gallus’ punitive campaign had been
a complete catastrophe, and emboldened the rebels.
To the west, Roman Emperor Nero received word of the revolt in Judea whilst on a concert
tour of Greece. Requiring a competent general to take charge and crush the insurrection,
Nero appointed a veteran of the British campaign: Titus Flavius Vespasianus, otherwise known
as Vespasian, to command the Army of Judea. Vespasian immediately set off for Judea, taking
the overland route over the Hellespont and through the great Cilician gates. After reaching
the city of Antioch, two legions and their associated auxiliary units joined him. Vespasian
marched south to Ptolemais, while his son, Titus, was sent to Alexandria in order to
take command of another legion and march it north to join the main army Meanwhile reinforcements
also arrived from the various local allies and clients. In total, the Empire mustered
around 60,000 troops to crush the revolt. No prisoners were taken, and entire opposition
villages were reduced to ash. This proved to be effective, as the 10,000-strong Jewish
field army quickly scattered in all directions, seeking haven in the fortified strong points.
In the subsequent campaign into Galilee during 67 AD, Vespasian systematically moved through
the region, brutalising any defiant settlement and often allowing his rapacious legionaries
free reign to loot, burn, murder and pillage as they pleased. Critical settlements defending
the region were captured. Jotapata fell to Vespasian first, followed by Joppa, Tiberias,
Tarichaea and Gamala before his army was finally billeted in its winter quarters, leaving a
subdued region in its wake. The fall of Galilee to Vespasian’s legionaries
prompted more internal strife among the Jewish factions. As the campaigning season of 68
AD began, Vespasian was in no hurry to intervene, stating that ‘Since our enemies are busy
dying by their own hands’ the best course of action would be to ‘stay as spectators
instead of taking on fanatics who welcome death and are already busy murdering each
other.’ Content to leave Jerusalem to its internal
squabbling, the Roman general marched across the mountainous province of Perea and Judea
proper, taking almost every settlement of note one by one, laying waste to the countryside
and slaughtering tens of thousands of civilians. The campaigning season of 69AD began similarly.
Dispatching his subordinates to the peripheral regions, Vespasian marched on Jerusalem itself.
He established garrisons in the towns that anchored his supply lines to the coast, while
the Roman horsemen rode down and destroyed any remaining hostile units in the vicinity
of Jerusalem. It seemed like only a miracle could save the rebels from Vespasian’s wrath.
They would get one very soon. Discontent with Emperor Nero’s infamous
excesses had been building throughout the 60s AD, and now finally it came to a head.
Back in March of 68AD, the provincial governor of Gallia Lugdunensis, Vindex, rebelled against
Nero. His revolt was quickly crushed, but it set the tone for the Year of the Four Emperors,
as another pretender named Galba was declared Emperor and marched on Rome. Deserted by his
praetorian guard, Nero was forced to commit suicide. Galba did not last long, and a few
months later he was usurped by Otho, who subsequently was dethroned by Vitellius.
Spiralling defiance of imperial authority also resulted in a Batavian revolt on the
Rhine river and grain supplies to Rome from Africa being cut off. With the Empire suddenly
in the process of eating itself alive, the campaign into Judea came to a halt as Vespasian
paused to consider his options. Finally, on July 1st 69AD, Vespasian was proclaimed Caesar
by the prefect of Egypt in the presence of his legions. The Flavian faction – Vespasian,
his family and supporters – then held a war council where their strategy was decided.
Vespasian would establish his headquarters in Egypt, while Titus, assisted by Tiberius
Alexander, would conclude the campaign of subduing the Jews.
Titus began the Jerusalem campaign in spring of 70AD, departing Alexandria and marching
up the Mediterranean coast towards Caesarea. The army assembled there was even larger than
that commanded by Vespasian in the previous years. At its core were four Roman legions:
Legio XV Apollinaris, Legio V Macedonica, Legio X Fretensis and Legio XII Fulminata.
In addition, 20 cohorts of auxiliary infantry, 8 alae of cavalry and many thousands of native
troops were present, commanded by the Roman client kings in the region. This was a massive
force totalling around 70,000 troops. Using the network of garrisoned strong points
his father had established, Titus marched straight at the city of Jerusalem by the main
road, whilst sending some other legions on alternative routes to alleviate supply problems.
Upon nearing the city, Titus rode ahead with 600 handpicked horsemen to perform reconnaissance
on the city. However, as this force approached the Psephenus Tower, a large force of Jews
charged out of the city and cut down many of Titus’ men. The commander himself was
almost captured, but narrowly managed to escape. Advanced Roman units from legions 15 and 12
appeared on the hills to the north of the city on April 23rd. During that night, Legio
V arrived, followed by Titus himself the next morning. The Jews had been preparing for such
a siege since the times of Herod, and they had managed to fortify the city considerably.
Manning their stations behind Jerusalem’s three formidable walls, the garrison of the
city probably amounted to over 20,000 well-armed troops, and who still possessed the siege
artillery captured at Beth Horon. Many of the Jews defending the city had lost their
families in the previous Roman campaigns and wanted revenge.
Despite its population being swollen by refugees, water was not a problem, as Jerusalem had
many cisterns and pools that could be filled with rainwater. However, food stores had been
burned in the inter-Judaic strife months before and the situation was therefore tenuous. This
strife was still ongoing even with the Romans so close, and the defending forces were split
into three sub-factions. Realizing his newly arrived legions must be
exhausted from the night march, Titus gave orders to construct two camps to the west
of the city: one joint camp for the twelfth and fifteenth legions at a stop ¾ of a mile
west of the city walls, and another camp 600 yards further back for the fifth legion. Shortly
after this, the tenth legion arrived and was ordered to encamp to the east of the city,
on the Mount of Olives. The looming Roman siege temporarily united
the squabbling Jewish factions, and they agreed on an immediate attack against the soldiers
of the tenth legion, who were busy constructing their hilltop camp. Sallying out of the city,
a detachment of rebels rushed up the slope and cut down droves of legionnaires. Encouraged
by this initial success, reinforcements were sent to press the attack, and they managed
to drive the men of the tenth legion from their uncompleted camp.
Hearing of their plight, Titus arrived with his cavalry bodyguard and struck the Jews
from the flank, driving them back into the ravine between their camp and the city walls.
However, they then attacked again instead of retreating. Under this renewed assault,
the Romans broke and fled to the heights, leaving their general. Ashamed, and realizing
Titus had not fled, the legion regrouped, charged and prompted the Jews to flee back
to the city. The camp on the hill was subsequently finished, though now it was clear that the
Jews would not meekly submit to them. Aiming to prevent this happening again, Titus
posted strong contingents of horse and footmen to the east of the city to deter further sorties,
and ordered that the ground between the Roman camps and the city was to be levelled. This
would both deny the guerilla fighters a favourable hiding place and allow siege engines to advance.
With this done, Titus decided on concentrating his assault on the western flank of the Third
Wall, between Psephinus Tower and the Western Gate.
The three legions facing this section of the wall were each ordered to construct an earth
and timber ramp. The construction efforts were initially disrupted by sorties out of
the city, but the concentration of Roman artillery, including large stone-throwing devices and
quick-firing iron bolt-throwing scorpions, pinned the Jews down long enough for the works
to be completed. Retaining a steady rain of missiles on the
walls, Titus then ordered three battering rams to smash the western wall, which were
initially unsuccessful until three siege towers were brought up to reinforce them. After a
long period of pressure, on the 15th day of the siege, Roman siege engines punched a hole
through the wall. With their entire force now at risk, the defenders quickly withdrew
to the Second Wall, leaving Titus to occupy the New City.
Unwilling to surrender their momentum, the legions immediately moved their rams up to
the Second Wall, where they began to batter the Tower Gate. After just four days of attacks,
one of the Rams brought it down and made a breach. Legionaries flooded through it into
the eerily silent Second City. However, as they advanced, rebels sprung from ambush positions
and bombarded the Romans with missile fire. Quickly forming into their tight shielded-squares,
the legions fought their way back to the narrow breach, where many died struggling to push
through. Eventually, auxiliary archers arrived and drove the Jews away, allowing the bewildered
legionaries to escape. After the Jews resisted in this area for four
more days, the Romans finally broke through. This time, Titus ordered the entire northern
section of the Second Wall torn down. The defensive front now narrowed [widened?], and
the Jews were able to bring more forces to bear on their enemy.
After advancing into the Second City, Titus now split his legions into two army groups,
which each constructed two siege ramps. The tenth and fifteenth legions attacked the First
Wall opposite the Tomb of John Hyrcanus, while the fifth and twelfth legions besieged the
Antonia fortress – named by Herod the Great in honour of Mark Antony. The ramps were finally
completed on May 29th, followed by an all-out assault, during which Titus brought up additional
battering rams and siege engines to assault the Antonia fortress. They did this under
constant artillery fire from bolt-shooters and stone-throwers which the Jews had taken
from Gallus in 66. As the assault began, Jewish sappers dug under
the Roman siege lines, undermined the ramps and set fire to the tunnel. This caused the
ground to collapse in on itself in a clattering roar, swallowing the Roman ramps and siege
towers, which demoralised the legions, as they had spent weeks constructing these engines.
To improve security, tighten the blockade and restore morale, Titus ordered that an
8 kilometre long wall of circumvallation was to be constructed, cutting the besieged sections
of Jerusalem off from the outside world. This massive undertaking was, typically, finished
in only 3 days by the Romans, and had 13 fortresses along its circumference to strengthen it.
Before it was made, the Jewish rebels were able to quite easily venture out of the city
to forage for food and supplies, but this was now made impossible. Famine quickly descended
on the city and its inhabitants slowly began to starve and die.
This done, Titus now focused all his efforts on conquering the Antonia Fortress again.
A day of assaults initially yielded no results, however the Romans had accomplished more than
they had realised. The foundations of the Antonia fortress, undermined by heavy rain
and the Jewish saboteurs’ tunnel which had destroyed the Roman siege engines, collapsed
during the night. The first Romans who exploited this gap discovered to their horror that the
Jews had built up a secondary wall behind the first, which was eventually overcome when
a contingent of brave legionaries attacked it during a night assault. The first of several
battles for the Temple Mount occurred after this, during which the Romans failed to break
out onto the forecourt. In its aftermath, Titus ordered the Antonia fortress destroyed.
On July 17th, the Romans attempted to seize the Temple’s courtyard again, but were again
repulsed in close quarters fighting, during which Jews were often wearing captured Roman
equipment. This confused the combatants and made ‘friendly fire’ incidents common.
Neither side was able to gain an advantage under these conditions.
After the second failure, Titus ordered that four siege ramps were to be constructed and
used against the northwest corner of the Temple Mount. At the same time, the Jews proved they
were not beaten when a major sortie was launched against the siege wall protecting the Mount
of Olives, but was repelled. The Jews also abandoned the area of wall where the Roman
siege ramps were mounted. However, they had rigged the area with a fire trap, and this
killed many soldiers as they advanced, seemingly unhindered.
By August 9th, withering artillery fire and Roman offensives had made the Jewish defence
of the courtyard untenable, and they pulled back to the inner defences at the Temple itself.
On August 10th, during the heavy fighting, a fire began in apartments near the Outer
Court, which spread and famously set the Second Temple alight, being spread due to the arid
conditions and the flammable materials all around. With Jewish attention divided between
fighting the fires which blazed through their most holy place, and defending against the
Romans, they were finally broken, and the entire temple mount was seized in an orgy
of butchery and looting. With their bloodlust finally sated, the Roman
soldiers proclaimed Titus ‘imperator’ – victorious general. With this done, the
legions were unleashed on the lower city, burning houses, government buildings, archives
and anything else the legions could get their hands on. Clearing this area of rebels took
two days and, after another short assault, Herod’s Palace was taken by September 7th.
The slaughter during the Fall of Jerusalem supposedly resulted in the death of at least
hundreds of thousands of civilians, pilgrims and soldiers. Titus returned to Rome, where
his father Vespasian, now the Roman Emperor after his victory in 70 AD, granted him a
triumph. The Arch of Titus was also dedicated to him, which remains to this day. While a
few isolated rebel strongholds remained, notably the Sicarii fortress of Masada, the Jewish
Revolt had been essentially crushed at Jerusalem. But this was not the end of Jewish resistance
and more wars would be fought between them and the Empire. New videos on the Roman history are on the

It will blow your mind,, wars of the Jews Flavius josephus…. your welcome,,the glory of Rome still rules today in America. notice the Fasci Symbols in the Senate House in D.C.

  3. After taking a DNA test, i found out im a small percentage genetically of the Jews expelled from Jerusalem due to this war, yet im mostly Italian. Probably explains alot of my personal struggles? Lol!

  4. Sucks for the Jews, but none of this would have happened if they had listened to the Judean Popular People's Front. 🙄

  5. When white supremacy rule the world. Rome-Britain -America . America will be the end of the gentle's rule. And then the true Jews will go home,… the negros.

  6. You failed to include jew troops that killed other jews inside the walls by the thousands. That should be shown when color coding your troops.

  7. “The Jews & Moors in Spain By Rabbi Krauskopf 1887 Page 84

    Rome enacted a carnage within the Holy City, the like in which her inhumane legions, with all their multitudinous & murderous experience, had never seen before. What the famine had left the sword consumed, and what escaped the sword fell a prey to the flames, and what remained, after streams of human blood had quenched the flames, dropped dead beneath the pestilence, and they, that had defied all these grim allies of cruel death, were driven into an open space, the tallest and most handsome were reserved to grace the triumphal march of Titus. To be dragged along the streets of Rome with a halter around their neck, and to be executed after the eyes and the ear of the Romans had had their fill of conquered sufferings; of the rest, all above seventeen years of age were sold to distant countries, to the most cruel servitude, or they were distributed among the provinces to give sport to the people by their gladiatorial combats, fighting for their lives against hungry and ferocious beasts. One million one hundred and ten thousand Jews perished during this siege; ninety-seven thousand Israelites were driven in chains as slaves to distant lands. “

  8. nobody jews comments here. they were silent. they have no temple now. meaning …their god rejected them ,unlike king hezekiah and king josiah were had gods protection

  10. This is only partially true, the conflict is the same as it is today, real Israel being a people of color came up against Roman and much more Caucasian people, people of Japheth, not Israel of today (Azkanazi, Kharzrian Jews adopted in by Israel) The Kharzrians don't come into play until the wars with the Arabs a few centuries later.
    1 Maccabees 3:48 Context

    45Now Jerusalem lay void as a wilderness, there was none of her children that went in or out: the sanctuary also was trodden down, and aliens kept the stronghold; the heathen had their habitation in that place, and joy was taken from Jacob, and the pipe with the harp ceased. 46Wherefore the Israelites assembled themselves together, and came to Maspha, over against Jerusalem; for in Maspha was the place where they prayed aforetime in Israel. 47Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, 48And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images. 49They brought also the priests' garments, and the firstfruits, and the tithes: and the Nazarites they stirred up, who had accomplished their days. 50Then cried they with a loud voice toward heaven, saying, What shall we do with these, and whither shall we carry them away? 51For thy sanctuary is trodden down and profaned, and thy priests are in heaviness and brought low. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/37788084358093158/?lp=true

  11. Jew*ISH fakes……. propaganda by THESE EDOMITE Amelek decendents of ESAU 😅. People know this BS is Lies

  12. Two things: 1) The temple destroyed by the Romans was the third temple, not the second. The first was built during the 40 years wandering at the direction of Moses, as he was directed by God. This first temple lasted more than 400 years, until the second temple was built during the reign of Solomon. This second temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar when he sacked Jerusalem in 586 BC. The third temple was built by the Hebrews from the debris left from the second temple and added to by the Persians, who wanted the temple rebuilt, and later by Herod the Great. 2) The main reason for the complete destruction of the third temple by the Roman forces was the fact that all the gold and silver found in the temple literally melted due to the intense heat of the fire that destroyed it. These liquid precious metals flowed onto the floor and adjacent areas surrounding the temple, and after things had cooled down, the Romans tore out every stone they could to get at the gold and silver that had accumulated between and under the stones of the walls and floor. Otherwise, a very good descripti0n of an event that changed history. Thank you for your hard work and research.

  13. What strikes me in this video is just how awful a soldiers life is. War is nothing but ruin and death. I feel sorry for mankind. Such a long dark history of endless wars and destruction.

  14. I like this video cause Titus and Vespasian are closely related with the birth of christianity along with Josephus and the video gives a lot of perspective on the situation as at that time.

  15. These wars were not fought by Ashkenaz (See Genesis 10v3). This happened some 600 years +/- before the Khazar Kingdom converted to Judaism. The Roman's were fighting copper colored, red and brown skin people with woolly hair aka black Hebrews. The were fighting the remnant of the tribes of Yahuda (Judeans) Levites and Benjamin's. History has been taught as a grand lie. Messiah, all the prophets, even the messengers are copper, red-brick or so called black.In antiquity, "white" skin was a sign of sickness, death and disease. See Numbers 12:10, See Exodus 4v6-7, 2 Kings 5:27. However and whenever the acceptance of white skin as a beauty standard is not clearly understood. How the mutation from black to white skin happened is not a topic many discuss. It's impolite. However, Messiah cured the lepers. From Moses to Messiah, leprosy was a discoloration of skin and hair. Modern science includes swollen limbs and raised skin abrasions. However, modern interpretations of all histories of the Tribes of Shem, Ham, and Japheth are told only through the eyes and ink of other white skinned so called historians, scientist, theologians, etc. (See Jeremiah 16:19). The black Hebrew prophets wrote the end of this age in the sacred writings. Gentiles added to Yahuah's words, and took away from his words. Therefore, all gentile nations are under the curse because they have added too, and taken away from these sacred words (Revelations 22:18-19). We are all watching end time events prophetically reveal who real Israel is and who is not (Ashkenaz – see Genesis 10:3). See Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, see on YouTube Benjamin Freedman warning Americans about fake Jews. As I understand history, their lives were cut short – murdered for speaking out. Research The Khazar Kingdom conversion circa 747. You decide.

  16. Makes You Wonder About the Greek Population that lived in the Holy Land for centuries with the Jewish People.

    There is a strong case that the local Palestinians are Mixed-Greeks-Jews-Arabs.

    It Seems the Greeks didnt go know where.

    Probably went through Multiple Conversions , Greek Gods, to Christianity to Islam….

  17. If they could have only got them all back then. Just imagine a world without corporate greed and money grubbers and tax cheats and frauds and … yeah. You get the picture.

  18. As a veteran of recent wars I can't imagine what it must have been like for these soldiers, rebels & professionals alike. It's one thing to siege a city like Fallujah, Baqubah or Ramadi w/ modern weapons but it's another animal completely when you have to fight hand to hand & truly be dependent on the person on the left & right of you whereas today's you can be a bit more independent.

  19. Damn i feel bad for all those civilians who had nothing to do with it.Army=legalized team of murderers,bandits,raiders and rapists. Yet they are there and we sleep soundly at night because of them.
    Moral education is highly important for any one serving in military.Never supported genocide.no matter who,no matter what

  20. I wonder how many of the modern Jews living in Israel, for instance, are actually anything related to the Jews of Judea presented in this video. I'd imagine there is almost 0% genetic connection. And this is the claim these modern Jews use to completely steal the land of Israel.

  21. Polytheism has a rich history of embracing other cultures pantheon's, maybe it's easier to accept other gods when you have multiple. Either way other than rare cases of Zealots I don't know of any religious motivated massacres. Correct me if I'm wrong YT.

  22. This is end times. Not the future which christians keep saying.. End times for jerusalem.

    Luke 21:20-22  (KJV)

    20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

    21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

    22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.



  23. The Romans knew how to deal with the Jews ! You don't want the Pax Romana ? OK ! We will kick your ass out of Palestine and you will never come back when Rome is still Rome ! And will replace you by other people ! You don't discuss with Rome who doesn't give a fuck about your God and your Bible , you must bow and accept the Pax Romana or disappear ! The Jews choosed their fucking religion, the Romans exterminated them or forced them to leave ! This is how the Romans solved the Jewish problem ! Rapidly and efficiently !

  24. I am a simple man. After wataching this video I have no idea who the guys are in this story. Maybe the romans who were religious tolerant and adaptable but a greedy and cruel empire at the same time. Or the jewish peasants who fought for their autonomy but were alleged to a fanatic religion and even killed each other?
    I don't know. The real world is so much more complicated than history class and movies 🙁

  25. I would like to say few things about your video. First, it is not historically correct, showing, that Titus attacked and broke thru the Jerusalem walls between Jaffa and Damascus gate, as shown on your video. If you were there even today, you could see that he would never make such decision, because this section of the wall was very high, strong, and too difficult to conquer. Titus started his attack around the weakest part of Jerusalem walls – around Herod's gate, which anyone can see, that it is the best, and easiest place to break through.
    The second thing is, that the reason why anyone would be interested in the siege and destruction of Jerusalem and the God's Temple, which still has not been rebuild since then is, that this city is so extremely important to hundreds of millions of Christians of many various Christian churches. Therefore, I think, that you should mention some of those horrible and macabre prophecies, which foretold, that the starving Jews, during that long siege by Romans resorted to cannibalism!

    Many prophets were foretelling that terrible facts, which were accurately fulfilled, and other horrors of that long siege of Jerusalem by the Romans. You didn't, so I believe, that you do not know the Bible and what God has said in it through the prophets.
    Moses himself, was the first who foretold that the Jews will resort to cannibalism: —
    * "..You will be so desperate for food, that you will even eat the children that the LORD has givden you… (Deuteronomy, 28:53-57).
    Then centuries later, other prophets foretold the same: —
    * "..Their hunger is never satisfied. They will even eat their own children !" (Isaiah, 9:20).
    * "As a result, parents in Jerusalem will eat their children , and children will eat their parents." (Ezekiel, 5:16).
    — There more of those incredible and horrific prophecies, which were fulfilled and confirmed by the eyewitness, – Jewish writer Josephus son Matthias, who was a priest from Jerusalem, and one of the leaders of the rebellion against Romans. He even gives the name of the woman, who killed, roasted and has eaten her own baby.
    I just wonder how many of the fake "Christians" know those prophecies and that they were accurately fulfilled?

  26. If I had a time machine, I would purposefully go the the leaders of the rebellion, give them a stockpile of AK-74s and teach them how to use it. Then just watch as Roman cowards die by the thousands.

  27. History of European Israeli Camaraderie in brief .
    1. Captured and Massacred by Romans
    2. Humiliated by Visigoths in Spain
    3. Expelled by Spanish monarchs after reconquista
    4. Humiliated by Papal States (In the Papal States, which existed until 1870, Jews were required to live only in specified neighborhoods called ghettos)
    5. Humiliated by Czarist Russia
    6. Massacred by Germans ( Holocaust by Nazi Germany )
    7 . Humiliated by Soviet Russia
    and the list goes so on . This is how much Europe loves israelis .
    NB : Jews lived in peace only under Muslim rule(Ottoman , Persian ).

  28. Haven't watched yet…put it on pause… wondering if the whole truth of this situation will be told on your video… I doubt it… Seems to be put together nicely tho👍

  29. Lies lies lies! I wish dumb people would wake up and see the Truth! Zionism is Pure Satanism! Americans have been so brainwashed & propegandized by the Warmongering Zionist Jews & their full control of Media & Social Media that they are unable to grasp reality how they’re being led to the slaughter. America has become bankrupt to its fiscal & moral core. Zionist Jews have successfully maneuvered America into a dead end, it is a nation divided & will remain divided because Zionist control us & they want us to fall. America is ruined, it has fallen to Jewish predation & she shall be deposed when the Jews finished using it. Trump will not challenge the false Zionist inspired narrative, Trump will not re-investigate 911, Trump will not prosecute the Jew criminals that pulled 911. Trump will not stop the wars, nor will he balance the budget or restore our liberty. The truth is that Donald Trump is a baby killer, a mass murderer, a warmonger, a egomaniacal narcissistic killer, a Israel’s first Zionist stooge. Americans have no idea how badly they have been getting fu*ked by Israel. Read Talmud or Google Protocols of Elders of Zion and just read a few protocols! See for yourself what evil really means.

  30. I don't think it had anything to do with monotheism. The Romans were just violent psychopaths who didn't really believe in anything except money and power. Their list of crimes against humanity is a very long one.

  31. "Romani Ite Domum!! Because except from order, hospitals, roads, aqueducts, oenology, laws, stability and security Romans didn't gave us Jews something!

  32. As far as I understood, Vespasian occupied North Africa, thereby cutting off Rome’s grain supply, then loyal legions in Italy occupied Rome for him, and that’s how he became Emperor

  33. That time Judea/ Jerusalem/ Bethlehem was ruled by the Romans who appointed figurehead Jewish king of local ethnicity, named King Herod. Herod had a court jester , in the court hall, named John the Baptist. Prior to the birth and the life-time of Jesus, so many astrologers or star – gazers or crystal gazers , both educated astrologers and Gypsy type astrologers and uneducated fortune tellers, had roughly guessed the upcoming birth , and life , of a man who will start a new religion , and will have numerous followers, and this will be revered by lots of people everywhere for ages to come. So much so that the Roman Governor of Judea / Israel / Palestine , (Some Roman Governor prior to Pontius Pilate) decided to build a beautiful marble port which the Romans called Caesaria or something similar. This beautiful port was built with money from the emperor of Rome. This marble Roman port of Caesaria was destroyed during the holy wars of the middle ages, most likely. The astrologers all said that this man will start a new religion , which will have atleast a few thousand followers if not more, everywhere and to start the religion,. the religious pioneer (likely Jesus or Mohammad) will most likely have to kill King Herod. Some said the man starting this new religion may be a killer or mass murderer or someone who will start a rebellion. Other astrologers said this man may be a very meek or docile man. Others said this religious man Jesus will scale the walls of the fortress of the king of Arabia in Eden or some similar place and personally watch the pillage and rape of Eden – Garden or some other fort such as Mecca. Others said this Jesus may actually be a blood-thirsty warrior who will kill his own half brother and his own uncle in the pursuit of his slightly fanatical new religion in a few years. Some predictions were right, but most predictions by others were way off target. Other astrologers predicted the man of religion may kill King Herod and his family, and proclaim himself a head of a hew religion. Not a single astrologer stated or predicted that this man will be the son of God.

  34. Brilliant fiction like all Western classical Roman history. Unless they fought the Greeks who later became the Italian Romans. Anyone who has studied classics beyond high school quickly becomes aware of the backwritren fuckery.

  35. Remember the Jewish nation ended in. 70AD , they lost the temple they lost their priesthood they lost the sacrifice all the men were killed the women were taking the slaves. The Catholic Church is the new Israel #Fact

  36. Part of the Jews ran into West Africa! ! And later became the people's of the slave trade! Black Americans Today! The book of Deuteronomy 28

  37. …not to mention the leader of the jewish revolt of ad70, was the son of King Agbar V, and his sons Thomas/Judas/Monobazus I and Manu/Monobazus II/Izas/Balaam/Jesus Christ. so this war IS the REAL gospel story.

  38. 123's of THE GOSPEL
    #1 “ANOTHER JESUS”: (2Cor 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus…)
    The strongest case for the divinity of Christ that one can make is the one God himself uses…..Thou fool, God speaking in the first person specifically in scriptures refers to the parts of a mans body (made in his own image) to describe father son and spirit and yet that is modalism by definition which trinitarians call heresy but God NOWHERE refers to himself as three in fact the worship of three different god-self’s with different amounts of knowledge, power and authority ordering each other around is nothing but a perverted pantheon and trying to lay claim to monotheism is like claiming your three different cars are the “one vehicle…….. …

    -The Trinitarian apologist pretend to have superior understand of more complex issues in statements where the purpose of God is NOT DEFINING how many persons he is while the simplest of statements by God FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE of defining how many persons God is eludes them. They also seem to “excel with glee” in giving their translations of oblique/obscure passages that have NO demand or intention of defining a specific number of persons of God to then cherry pick demands and assumptions of “great piety” into them.

    -This should have given you all a hint, harking back to Satan in The garden…God said you will die…Satan comes along and states no you will be more WISE……Today .God said He is one; but Satan’s children come along and say “no, God is "three in one" aka trinity is more WISE and humble in the face of God’s grandeur only “a mystery” that can be understood “in faith”. Thou FOOL!.. (Isaiah 66:44. I also will choose their delusions,; 2Thess 2:12..God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,) God uses head and right arm to explain the distinctions between father and son.. However, the Trinitarian heretics say to the effect: “NO, that is just a figure of speech, or that is not what God really means. What God is really saying is that God is three different persons”. Fools, hypocrites and blind guides, God said he was One and by your traditions have taken the words of God and made them of no effect, refashioning God into the image of your vain imaginations!

    #2 “ANOTHER GOSPEL”: (2Cor 11:4 “…or another gospel”… Do you even know what the Gospel is?!?)
    Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES. 2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    -Gal 1: 8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    The book of Revelation offers us an interesting Theological dilemma. It states Rev 22:16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. Revelation also states it is “the true sayings” of Jesus and that it is “the testimony of Christ”. If this is not “the gospel of Jesus Christ” then what is it and should we consider it accursed testimony of an angel? If it is not to be considered accursed, then it cannot be some other gospel message then what was already given previously. However, this is the conundrum, for if this is the gospel message, then why do so few understand it? There is a possibility which few consider but is the overall thesis of this apology. The reason people don’t understand revelation is because they never understood what the gospel message was in the first place! In that case, where does that put those who claim it is not essential for salvation? Do you not find it quite curious that the most "Personally" given NT book By Jesus himself, is the least understood and given the least importance for Salvation in Christendom?….There are numerous preachers and bible exegetes but as Paul said “… I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge ” . Most who profess the name of Christ are feeding on doctrines of devils and the ignorant.. There are, without question, many “qualified” teachers and scholars with many years of “dedication” and “solid education”. However, teachers, no matter how well lettered or numbered in degrees; if obtained from others; who are just as equally ignorant in such matters, are just “ blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”………..

    #3 God loves everyone??? Jesus Died for “you”?……

    Does God love you?….“Probably” NOT!….and NO Jesus did NOT die for everyone!?!…… “come as you are??” (Lk 3:8)

    Prov 8: 17. I LOVE THEM THAT LOVE ME …………Do you love God??

    1John 5:3. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:

    There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups Predestination….its true.. its all true… God does NOT love everyone:

    (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, …as contrasted …EPH 1: 4. According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

    (2) “MANY CALLED”= ONLY and ALL SAINTS (those who come to Christ) are written in the book of life … Philippians 4:3… ……Rev 21:27; (Only saints are Called and elect; Rom 1:6-7 et al) This is THE CHRUCH and ONLY these can have their names blotted out of the book of life ….….Heb 12:23 to the general assembly and CHURCH of the firstborn … WHICH ………are WRITTEN in heaven,

    (3) THE FEW CHOSEN: Those saints who were alive in group #2 who are now physically dead. They died “faithful” these are the FEW that were chosen faithful…….Rev 3:5. ……; and I
    will not BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, (Ps 69:28) …. These are the FEW that are CHOSEN and now that they have died and are saved then “once saved THEY CAN NEVER BE LOST”

    PS: “The world” that God so loved was not the Roman world nor the world of the Maya nor the world you imagined in your head that God specifically told them NOT TO LOVE!?! Heb 10:29 They are worse off because they did something the damned had not done which is to treat the blood, that was shed for them- that bought them, with spite !?!




  39. 37 years later after JesusChrist Crucifixion this happened. Jesus prophesise the siege and the destruction of the temple, the Jew leaders did not listen. He also said he is coming back a second time, everybody believe and be ready for his coming.

  40. This was interesting. My knowledge about this part was shallow before, thinking that the Jewish Revolt was crushed easily but instead it was pretty an intense one that they manage to wipe out a Roman Legionnaire.

    That explains why the Romans had a badblood when it comes to people worshiping single gods.

  41. One bit of history from this area and period that usually get's ignored is that in 66 CE when the Romans, for unknown reasons, suddenly abandoned Jerusalem after successfully breaching the wall of the temple and entering it, is that on the very day they left, All the Christians in the city left for the gentile cities far off to the north and east. It was on the very next day that the doors to the city were closed refusing exit to anyone after that. This was because the different factions within the city were beginning their exertion of control which led to the city wide civil war later. Anyone trying to leave the city were executed as traitors. When the civil war reached its height, out of jealousy of the factions, all the cities food stores were set on fire resulting the starvation and disease. When the Romans finally returned, they found a city devastated and almost dead. Taking the city was easy.

  42. 17:56 of the video, Luke 19:43 "Because the days will come upon you when your enemies will build around you a fortification of pointed stakes and will encircle you and besiege you from every side." The book of Luke was written between 56 and 58 CE and was quoting Jesus who made the statement in 33 CE.

  43. I absolutely love this channel, its meticulously accurate and so well produced. Kings and generals thank you for existing.

  44. Im from jerusalem but kinda happy the romans destroyed it with most inhabitants. Surely it was a punishment from the Lord almighty

  45. Palestine is just romanized word of Philistine. Ancient enemy of the Jews. Roman named that way just to pity the jews. Palestinians are Arabs

  46. So this is the great Roman western civilisation that you westerners are proud of. Humans have less value than animals in your eyes. How many nation was enslaved, humilated or annihilated under this evil empire. Yet because it represents the supremacy of the Aryan western civilisation it's a great work. Hilter was defeated because his enemies were stronger, not for his ideology.

  47. the jews werent monotheist which means believing in one god, they worshipped one god but believed many others existed (monolarity). Fact is nobody today is monotheist fo rthe same reasons… eg all christians believe in the stories about other gods in the bible, eg the egyptian gods who changed sticks into snakes, or balaam and his talking donkey etc.

  48. How exactly could armed or not civilians manage to defeat roman legions such as in the beginning when the armies arrived to surround jerusalem ?

    Shouldnt they be so outclassed that this should be impossibel ?

  49. Was this the biggest revolt Rome experience from a conquered people? Also, I'm curious as to where the Jews learned how to fight and where their weaponry came from. You'd think the Romans would restrict that while governing the territory. In the end, a very foolish rebellion. Israel was too much of a core Roman territory by that time. Let Israel go and they might as well let Egypt go to. Wasn't going to happen. You only want to rebel if you are the fringes of the empire, where the territory goes back and forth, and preferably when the empire is clearly weakening. I think the Jews 1st chance would have been in the 4th century, and even then it would have been rough- and that's talk over 200 years later. Once the Byzantines or East Romans got going by the 500s it was too late again. Possibly a window, but in reality their territory was too small and in a terrible location to resist. Oh and don't rely on God. If the Jewish ultra-orthodox ever take power you can expect a similar result from Lebanese/Syrian possibly Iranian attacks.

  50. All the wars all the suffering, yet
    Our specie of humanity, never learned, so sad, Let live as a specie not nations Let live as one.

  51. This is history as told by Flavian and Flavian affiliated sources, isn't it? Nero was a Julio-Claudian. Of course, because the suppression of the Jewish side of the story is ongoing, you're leaving out that Nero converted to Judaism and went into exile, as the Book of Revelation seems to suggest. This is what the Jerusalem Talmud reports, but I independently confirmed it in Flavius Josephus' Wars of the Jews, where he reports that Nero reigned for 13 years and 8 days. This is Jewish code-speak for Nero's circumcision. (Who cares about 8 days? Jews.) 13 years and 8 days occurs in Genesis 17 of the Torah. Then you have to factor in that Titus means "Dove" and that Titus was the beloved son of his dead father in heaven, Vespasian. Christianity was the replacement theology for Temple Judaism, created by the same Roman Dynasty that destroyed the Temple. Why would Nero convert to Judaism? Josephus tells us. It was because Poppea, his wife, was at first interested in the religion. Historians are now beginning to realize that Nero has been given a bit of a bad rap by succeeding historians interested in saving their own hides. Why was Nero called "the first anti-Christ"? What is an anti-Christ, according to John? He who denies that Jesus (Titus) is the Christ/Messiah come in the flesh. Nero certainly wasn't signing up for Titus' new religion, assuming he was even still alive at that point. James the Brother of Jesus and Caesars Messiah are good reads to get a bigger picture of the real issues of the 1st Century in the Fertile Crescent.

  52. Scouting expeditions are recorded in the Gospels in the person of Jesus (Titus). Supposed Jewish in-fighting was likely the result of Roman false flag leaders at the extremes, representing super-religiosity/zealotry and anomia (Torahlessness). The Pharisees are portrayed in Josephus as the religious moderates trying to maintain peace amongst the people and with Rome, unlike the New Testament picture of them. Today's Rabbis are descendants of the Pharisees and they still work for unity and moderation in the Jewish community.
