A Worse Fate Awaited Jerusalem

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 23:27-38.
As the Romans led Jesus to the place of crucifixion, many people followed and wailed, especially the women (Luke 23:27), to whom Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For indeed the days are coming in which they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore, and breasts which never nursed!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ For if they do these things in the green wood, what will be done in the dry?” (vv. 28-31). The women had seen crucifixions before and the thought of Jesus going through that, terrified them, but they did not know what awaited Jerusalem from the Romans in about forty years. The pain and suffering the Romans inflicted on the city of Jerusalem was much more drawn out than what He was about to suffer. Jesus suffer ed mightily, but those who fight against Him and do not obey Him have a far worse fate awaiting them.
Turn to Jesus now. Believe He is the Son of God. Repent of your sins. Be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins.
