How long was Jerusalem to be trodden down of the Gentiles?


"And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem
shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled." Luke 21: 24.
NOTE - Jerusalem stands for the people, the truth, and the true worship of God. It is first
mentioned in the Bible as Salem (Gen. 14:18); is spoken of figuratively as a mother bringing forth the
children of God (Gal. 4:26,27); and is a type of the holy city, New Jerusalem, which is to be the metropolis
of the new earth.
