  • Kaulbach's "Zerstoerung Jerusalems durch Titus" - One of the 100 Greatest Paintings of all time (2011) "Kaulbach's interpretation of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romams as a heavenly punishment brought upon the sinful people of Israel by Divine wrath, and as a fulfillment of the Old and New Testament prophecies, follows a long tradition already apparent in the teachings of early Christian writers such as Tertullian."

  • Thomas Dekker - Canaan's Calamitie, Jerusalem's Misery ; The dolefull destruction of faire Ierusalem by Tytus, the Sonne of Vaspasian Emperour of Rome, in the yeare of Christ's Incarnation 74  (1598) Wherein is shewed the woonderfull miseries which God brought upon that Citty for sinne, being utterly over-throwne and destroyed, by Sword, pestilence and famine.

  • Time Magazine, Mar. 10, 1923 "The most valuable modern painting offered for sale for a long time will be on view in New York next week.  It is a big picture (12 by 18 feet) and is expected to bring about $100,000. It is called Judaea Capta, or the Triumph of Titus. The painter, Iszo Koves, Hungarian, worked on it for 20 years, and spent 35 years gathering historical data. Then he died during the war, penni- less, leaving a destitute widow and children.  The Judaea Capta is a picture of Titus coming back to Rome with the spoils of conquered Jerusalem—including the captive daughters of Israel. Some nude Bacchantes are included for purposes of contrast.  One of Koves' earlier pictures, Spinoza Before His Judges, was twice rejected for exhibition in Buda Pesth. So the angry artist hid it. in his studio, until his wife and a pupil smuggled it out and submitted it again. It was accepted and delighted the Emperor."

  • Handel's Messiah & The Destruction of Jerusalem “Messiah” lovers may be surprised to learn that the work was meant not for Christmas but for Lent, and that the “Hallelujah” chorus was designed not to honor the birth or resurrection of Jesus but to celebrate the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple in A.D. 70. For most Christians in Handel’s day, this horrible event was construed as divine retribution on Judaism for its failure to accept Jesus as God’s promised Messiah. // The resurrected Jesus, sitting at the right hand of God, unleashed his anger on the Jews by having the Roman armies lay waste to Jerusalem and its temple in A.D. 70. // Central to Kidder and his like-minded readers is a mode of interpretation called “typology,” which means that events in the Old Testament point to events in Christian history not only through explicit prophecy and fulfillment but also through the more mysterious implied spiritual anticipation of Christian “antitypes” in Old Testament “types.”" --  At Scene 6 in Part 2 the oratorio features passages from Psalm 2 of the Old Testament set as a series of antagonistic movements that precede excerpts from the New Testament’s Book of Revelation set as the triumphant “Hallelujah” chorus: type and antitype, prophecy and fulfillment."
