Growing In God with Gary Hargrave

Jul 14, 2021

Just ahead is the fast of Tisha B’Av, which is considered the saddest day of the Hebrew year because several disastrous events happened in Jewish history—the worst of which were the destruction of Solomon’s Temple by the Babylonians in 423 BCE, and the destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans in 70 CE. Other events include the defeat of the Bar Kokhba revolt, the expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290, and from Spain in 1492. Christians today participate in Tisha B’Av because we recognize that God brings consequences into our lives that He uses to speak to us.
