Nufayl reads a letter from the Jews of Bayt al-Muqaddas (the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem) about Muhammad to his followers, who include five women.

Christ's Entry into Jerusalem

4 BCE: Disciples of certain sages of Jerusalem tear down the image of a golden eagle, which Herod, in violation of Jewish law, had erected on the gate of the Temple.

70 CE: The parties of both John of Giscala and Simon son of Gioras set fire to buildings stocked with provisions, exacerbating the famine that besets Jerusalem.

165 BCE: Judah Maccabee leads an insurgency against Antiochus IV and expels his troops from the temple precincts and citadel of Jerusalem.

70 CE: The famine in Jerusalem drives the Jews to abominable acts: a woman named Mary kills her infant son, then roasts the corpse and devours half of it.

55 CE: An Egyptian false prophet, having set himself up as tyrant, leads his 30,000 followers into a battle with the Romans in Jerusalem. Most of his men are killed or taken prisoner.

68 CE: The priest Ananus calls upon the citizens of Jerusalem to resist the Zealots, who have made the Temple their fortress.

68 CE: The Zealots, incited by John of Giscala, ask the Idumaeans to join the battle in Jerusalem. Jesus, the priest next in seniority to Ananus, addresses the Idumaeans from the tower of Jerusalem, in an attempt to dissuade them from joining the Zealots.

67 CE: The intriguer John son of Levi (John of Giscala) incites a rebellion in the town of Giscala in the Upper Galilee. After persuading Titus not to attack the town on the Sabbath, John flees at nightfall from Giscala to Jerusalem with some of his followers.

70 CE: Feuding breaks out again in Jerusalem amongst three factions: followers of Eleazar son of Simon (the Zealots); John of Giscala; and Simon son of Gioras.

68 CE: The Idumaeans decide to overthrow John of Giscala and invite Simon son of Gioras into Jerusalem to oppose him and the Zealots.
