Christendom College president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell will illustrate the fall of Jerusalem in a special lecture for the Institute of Catholic Culture on Saturday, December 12 at 6:30 PM. Titled “Not One Stone: The Fall of Jerusalem (70 A.D.),” the talk will be delivered in St. Francis de Sales Church Hall in Purcellville, Va., with no reservation required.
The fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. is one of the most significant events in world history, with its fall prophesied by Jesus Christ Himself in Chapter 21 of the Gospel of Luke.
