A Week in the Fall of Jerusalem by: Ben Witherington III

A Week in the Fall of JerusalemA Week in the Fall of Jerusalem by Ben Witherington III
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Within a generation not one stone would be left on another of Herod’s temple according to the prophecies of Jesus.

This short account of the fall of Jerusalem has two different narratives – the first being of what it was like in the last week of three women who were followers of Christ. Joanna, Mary and Martha. The 2nd narrative was more commentary with pictures of the actual sight and the significance. As always, history of what happened gives us a better appreciation of God’s redemptive plan and the church that is the vessel of that plan. That being said, I appreciated that part of the text. The novel type account of the followers of Christ was very one dimensional so it was difficult for me to be engaged in that part.

For the informative part, I would recommend this text as it gave new light to the early church and how the prophecies of Christ proved trustworthy.

A Special Thank You to Intervarsity Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
