Maybe I´m wrong, but… Why is this source not discussed in preterist circles?
About 73-100 AD Stoic Mara talks about 3 wise ancient men, that will live forever in their teachings: Plato, Pythagoras,the murdered wise King of the Jews (Jesus!?). He is sure: Jerusalem was destroyed AD 70 because God punished the Jews for rejecting the new laws he had given-
This is an early proof that even pagan philosophers thought, that the Fall of Jerusalem and the Jews “driven from their kingdom” was a consequence of rejecting their messiah, who had brought a “new law” for them!?
