When Christians were Jews

  1. Okay, maybe I'm nitpicking, but the article states: "The third blow struck when Caligula’s desecration of the temple, interpreted as the “abomination of desolation,” didn’t initiate Daniel’s apocalyptic vision (AD 39–40)." I'm a history buff & Roman history is one major area of interest for me. If I remember correctly, Caligula *never* desecrated the Temple. He was intending to put up his statue but was convinced to withdraw the order & the statue was never placed.
