How To Interpret The Bible Correctly – Jerusalem’s History Displays 7 Elements Of God’s Unfolding Plan Of Redemption

Geography is very important to Bible study and interpretation. Everything happened somewhere; and if God repeatedly uses a special place, we should take note.

That brings us to the “most mentioned” place in God’s Word: Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is BIG in God’s Word 

The most mentioned place in the Bible is a city called Jerusalem.

The center of the world and the prophetic universe is the same city.

Jerusalem is the city that God has chosen for Himself. 1 Kings 11:13 (NKJV)   

Ancient maps put Jerusalem In the center of the world, and I think they were right.

How To Interpret The Bible Correctly – Jerusalem, God, and History

When Jesus told His disciples and us about the future he built every word of it around one spot on earth (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21). Jesus framed His words about the rest of the history of this planet by the sight of Jerusalem in all its earthly glory spread in front of Him. 

Look again at Christ’s very first words in Matthew 24:2. All that He says about His second coming is introduced by those words.  He said keep your eye on Jerusalem. I am ascending from the Mount of Olives (the center of Jerusalem then and now) and I am returning to the Mount of Olives.

When Jesus told His disciples and us about the future he built every word of it around one city on earth named Jerusalem (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21). Jesus framed His words about the rest of the history of this planet by the sight of Jerusalem in all its earthly glory spread out in front of Him. Jerusalem is the trigger that will set off the grand finale for planet earth. 

Jerusalem is the Trigger

Twenty-six hundred years ago God foretold that the fate of the entire planet earth would hinge upon one city. 

The Coming Invasion Of Israel

Jesus explained world events would be tied to Jerusalem in Matthew 24, where Jesus also saw a Jewish Temple rebuilt and part of the Tribulation events.

So for this to Temple to be built (that Paul, John, and Daniel also saw prophetically, with Christ), something must happen during the “times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24). That may be what we are seeing happening all around us in the world events touching upon the Nation of Israel. 

New Testament Gospel History

New Testament Gospel History. Our faith is so tied to the events of the NT. God picked a spot for the Drama of Redemption, and that history is so tied to the Land and the Book. Again, the history of the New Testament is written is a flow that ties each of the 27 pieces together. The books are each in themselves a map that traces the history so dear to us. Come and see how our New Testaments are 27 books but one amazing event: Christ! Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, & Acts all are filled with real historical sites you can see, feel, and almost hear the sounds of what really happened there just as your Bible records.
