How had Moses spoken of another and greater dispersion?
"The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth. . . . And he shall besiege
thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trusted. . . . And the Lord
shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other." Deut. 28: 49-64.
NOTE - This calamity and dispersion occurred in AD. 70, under Titus, the Roman general. Says
the Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia, Vol. II, article "Jerusalem," page 932: "Jerusalem seems to
have been raised to this greatness as if to enhance the misery of its overthrow. So soon as the Jews had set
the seal to their formal rejection of Christ, by putting Him to death, and invoking the responsibility of His
blood upon the heads of themselves and of their children (Matt. 27: 25), the city's doom went forth. Titus, a
young, brave, and competent Roman general, with an army of sixty thousand trained, victorious warriors,
appeared before the city in April. AD. 70, and the most disastrous siege of all history began." See pages 11,
