Excerpt from How to Search the Scriptures for Eternal Life; Prophecy, or Characteristics of a True Prophet, and Prophetic Symbols; The Kingdom of God Under the Mosaic and Abrahamic Covenants of Constitution
The commonwealth of Israel continued in vassalage to Babylon, Persia, and Greece, till before Christ 165, being 430 years from the desolation of the city, B. C. 595. It then became independent under the Asmonean dynasty during 129 'years, when it became subject to the Romans, who set up the Idumean or Herodian race of Kings. Under these the Shiloh was born. Afterwards J udea was converted into a procuratorship. The sceptre had depart ed from Judah and been transferred to the Romans. The Levitical authorities arrainged the Christ before Pi late, for confessing'that he was the King of the Jews, and extorted the sentence of death against him. He was cru cified through the voice of the Jewish rulers and people, and died according to the Scriptures, and in about 87 years afterwards the Romans took away the daily sacri fice, cast down the place of its sanctuary, destroyed the city, cast down the truth to the ground, destroyed the mighty and the holy people, and carried them away cap tive into all nations, where they still remain, waiting for the restitution of all things 7' belonging to their nation. - Daniel viii. 11-22-24, and ix. 26 Luke xxi. 24.
