The wailing wall
Satan At The Wailing Wall
Below are 3 diagrams of the temple site next to
Fort Antonia as they appeared in the time of Jesus. The top 2 diagrams are
views looking to the northwest. The bottom diagram is a birds eye view.
The wailing wall that many Jews visit is not the western wall from the ancient Jewish temple, but in fact is the western wall of the Roman Fort Antonia. Fort Antonia was a permanent Roman fort at the time of Jesus. Fort Antonia was 800 feet north of the temple and the southern wall of the fort was connected to the northern wall of the temple by double colonnades.
Jesus made it clear that the temple would be destroyed so thoroughly that "[t]here shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." Matthew 24:1,2; Mark 13:1,2; Luke 19:43,44; 21:5,6. The Jews are all too happy to deceive the world into believing that Jesus was wrong. In fact, the prophecy of Jesus was fulfilled perfectly. The temple was completely destroyed down to the last stone, the remains that are left standing today are the remains of Fort Antonia, not the temple.
The Dome of the Rock is not as it is supposed the place where Mohamad ascended into heaven. The Dome of the Rock is a pagan Islamic shrine built over the Roman Praetorium, which was where Pilate sentenced Jesus. The Praetorium and was inside Fort Antonia, not the Jewish temple. http://antichristconspiracy.com/pictures.htm
