Luke 21:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Destruction of Jerusalem

20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know for sure that its devastation is imminent.[a] 21 At that time all who are living in Judea must flee to the mountains. Those who live inside the city gates, go out and flee, and those who live outside the city must not enter it seeking refuge. 22 For these are the days of God’s vengeance to fulfill what has been written[b] against Jerusalem.


  1. Luke 21:20 This was fulfilled in AD 70 when Jerusalem was left desolate by Roman armies. Some historians estimate that more than one million Jews were slaughtered at that time and up to one hundred thousand were taken captive to other nations.
  2. Luke 21:22 See 1 Kings 9:6-9; Dan. 9:26; Hos. 9:7; Mic. 3:12.
