Under what striking symbol was all this foretold?

Answer

"Thus says the Lord, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle. . . . Then shall thou break the bottle in the sight of
the men that go with thee, and shall say unto them, Thus says the Lord of hosts; Even so will I break this
people and this city, as one breaks a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again." Jer. 19: 1-11.
NOTE - 'No city on the globe has suffered more from war and sieges than Jerusalem. . . .
Storming legions, battering-rams, and catapults have razed it again and again. And yet, the general outline
of the city has always been preserved. Zion and Mount Moriah remain in full view from Olivet, and there,
on those hills, stretching away toward the west, city after city has come and gone in the passing ages."Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia, Vol. II, article "Jerusalem," pages 928, 929.
