  • In A.D. 70, the Roman Tenth Legion unleashed a deadly hailstorm of boulders against the Jewish metropolis (Rev. 16:21). This Legion was located east of Jerusalem, across the Cedron Valley, in the direction of the Mount of Olives. Jesus Christ had prophesied, "For as the lightning cometh forth from the east, and is seen even unto the west; so shall be the coming of the Son of man" (Matt. 24:27). 
  • Living in Indiana, hail storms are natural weather phenomena which one has to periodically endure. 
  • The activities of Jesus Christ recorded in Matthew 21:18-26:2 transpired within the course of a single day. "And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these words, he said unto his disciples, Ye know that after two days the passover cometh, and the Son of man is delivered up to be crucified." 
  • "The Great Tribulation" anticipated by Jesus Christ was an unprecedented "time of trouble" accomplished within his apostles' own generation (Matt. 24:1-34). According to Daniel, this period consumed a period of 1290 days, or 43 months (Dan. 12:1-13). 
  • Two days prior to his crucifixion, as he sat on the Mount of Olives, Jesus Christ foretold the coming destruction of Jerusalem. 
  • We have come to view the Scriptures as a great pyramid of revealed information. The Old Testament forms the broad base of this pyramid of knowledge. 
  • Bible prophecies center around three desolating sieges of Jerusalem: the Babylonian, the Roman, and the Russian. Only the Russian siege of Jerusalem is still pending. This post-millennial siege of the Jewish metropolis is prophesied by John. 
  • Bible prophecy focuses upon three desolating sieges of Jerusalem: the Babylonian, the Roman, and the Russian. 
  • "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Gen. 1:1). This is the critical and fundamental affirmation with which the Bible opens. Our physical senses tell us the heavens and the earth presently exist. To deny the present existence of the heavens and the earth would be tantamount to denying our own rationality and dwelling place. But were the heavens and earth actually designed and created by God? Or did they somehow come into existence over vast eons of time through purely natural processes? Obviously, questions relating to the formation of our physical universe are the source of a great deal of dispute and controversy.
