OTHER VERSIONS OF THIS TRADITION:

The Wandering Jew: or, The fulfillment of prophecy

Tarry thou till I come; or Salathiel, the wandering Jew


(On Jerusalem the Harlot)
"And because this city was the cause of the shedding of the innocent blood, she was suddenly visited with judgments -- as sudden as the coming of lightning. (The destruction of Jerusalem was sudden.  In a very short time, not less than eleven hundred thousand perished. 
See Josephus, de Bell, Ind. lib. 6, c. 9, 3. - trans." (p. 401)

"How could God be merciful towards such a city?  A city that would not reform, but accumulated sin upon sin until they had filled their cup of iniquity.  W.S. Thus I hear that all things conspired to the destruction of Jerusalem." (p. 410)

"In order that God might show that he was determined utterly to destroy Jerusalem; and to that end, he gave them several signs, to warn each one in the city of the coming destruction." (p. 411)

(On Chariots in the Clouds)
"Soon after the feast of the passover, in various parts of the country, before the setting sun, chariots and armed men were seen in the air, passing round about Jerusalem, which was very alarming to behold.  At the subsequent feast of Pentecost, while the priests were going, by night, into the inner temple to perform their customary ministrations, they first felt, as they said, a shaking, accompanied by an indistinct murmuring, and afterwards voices of a multitude, saying, in a distinct and earnest manner, "Let us go hence." (The Wandering Soul, p. 412-413)

(On Matthew 24:4-5)
"Josephus informs us, that there were many who pretended to be inspired, and deceived many people; leading out numbers into deserts, that they would there show them signs of liberty - meaning redemption from the Roman yoke, which things the Jews expected the Messiah would do for them.  Josephus, de Bell, lib. 2, c. xiii.,
4,5." (p. 409)

"Josephus informs us that an Egyptian false prophet led 30,000 into the desert, who were almost entirely cut off by Felix, the Roman procurator.  And that in the reign of Claudius, "the land was overrun with magicians, seducers, and imposters, who drew the people after them in multitudes into solitudes and deserts, to see the signs and miracles, which they promised to show by the power of God.  Josephus, Antiq. lib. 20, c. viii., 6 (p. 409)

Martyrdom of St.Simon Cleophas, the Apostle - 9th of Ab 109
On this day, St. Simon, the Apostle, was martyred. He was the son of Cleophas, brother of Joseph the Just, to whom the Virgin Mary was betrothed. He received the grace of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room of Zion, and was ordained bishop for Jerusalem succeeding St. James the Apostle. He converted many of the Jews to the faith in the Lord Christ. The Lord wrought many wonders in his hands, and he urged the people for chastity and purity. When Emperor Trajan heard about him, he brought him, tortured him much, and then cut off his head. He was one hundred twenty years old.
May His prayers be with us all. Amen.
