    Somewhat useful. But will not consider a serious source to quote.
    Would be greatly improved if you factored in.
    Death of James the brother of Jesus, in 62 ad.
    Death of Apostle Paul, 64 ad.
    Destruction of th Temple and Jerusalem in 70 ad.

    Hi Phileepin
    Check out Mark 13, which is attested by conservative Christians as the prediction of Jesus, for myself, the verses of Mark 13 are the work of a copyist writing after the fact, and not by any inspired hand.

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Revelation after 70 AD, yet no mention of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem!
