Story of the World Volume 1 Chapter 38
The Destruction of the Temple 70 AD
Because the Romans were afraid that the people would follow Jesus, instead of listening to them, they had Him put to death. The Jews hated being under the rule of the Romans, they had been ruled for years by other countries. For years the Jews lived in Egypt and Canaan, finally after returning back to their home land, the Jews hoped to be free from ruling countries, but they were now ruled by Rome. The Jews grew tired of being ruled by the Romans so they rebelled and refused to follow Roman law.
