Historical context is always inescapable, but it seems to me clear that the Biblical Scriptures operate on a platform of general applicability. Yes the walls of Jerusalem would fall, but so will the walls of, say, China or, say, the US. The great struggle of Christ versus antichrist, or autonomous individual versus empire rings today as loudly as it did in the first century. Now as much as then are the poor in spirit blessed, as are the peace makers and the meek.
