The year of the founding of this “it” spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24 is traced through both the books of Daniel and Revelation in Misquoting Logic. As Antiochus Epiphanes, Selucid King of Syria placed an altar atop the Jewish Temple altar and sacrificed a pig thereon, the abomination of desolation also intercedes to disallow furtherance of Jewish worship.
Upon it are the boastful words and abominable things prophesied by Jesus and Paul and again the book of Daniel is shown as authentic prophecy especially when it is confirmed by the words (also prophetic) in Revelation.
This evidence is given as mercy to skeptics who are entreated to the math of the Bible timelines rendering their objections moot, at the astronomical statistical impossibility (unless God is speaking through them) of two men in history one from 500 years in advance of Jesus and the other writing 90 years after his birth, both triangulating and zeroing in on the same point in actual history with specific detail in regard to that event.
The evidenced story here is a faith builder for those believing the Bible and absolute evidence destroying skepticism in it tracks.
