    With Saul in particular, we have typology of the Antichrist and Christ side-by-side. Scripture says, “The women sang as they played, and said, ‘Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands.’” (1 Sam. 8:7) David here is a type of Christ who would later have His own triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey.

He then took a pig and slaughtered it on the idol. Christ linked the Antichrist to this very wicked person when he spoke of him; referencing Daniel the prophet (Mark 13:14). Antichrist, like Antiochus before him will also set up an idol in the future temple in Jerusalem and sacrifice to it. The Bible calls this act the Abomination of Desolation. The Bible also associates the Antichrist to another person — General Titus. In 70 A.D., he led an army against Jerusalem in a series of campaigns that led to the final complete destruction of Jerusalem in 130 A.D. Daniel says that the future Antichrist will be linked to the very people that destroyed Jerusalem (Daniel 9:26). The Arch of Titus in Rome celebrates General Titus victory. Wikipedia states,…

  • Essay On Ancient Hebrew God

    I wonder if this is because they viewed the scriptures and the Ten commandments the only representation needed to express their sacred religion or because when the Hebrews wandered for forty years looking for the Promised Land of “milk and honey” creating arts of those years seemed unimportant. The only religious art depicted in the book is the Menorahs and Ark of the Covenant which is a wall painting in a Jewish catacomb.
