What happen to the Jerusalem Church after 70AD


For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

Romans 11:25

I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!’


Romans 11:11-12



The Question: What Happen to the Jerusalem Church “Assembly” or ekklēsia after 70 AD?


Let’s Qualify “the Jerusalem Church or ekklēsia”; Members of the Jerusalem or Jewish Church were those Jews that believed Jesus was the Christ (the Messiah) the Son of God and kept the Mosaic Law. Best example is Peter himself who gave his profession of faith in Matthew 16:16.

When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 16:13-17



After Titus’ army’s destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple, the Jews were killed off, dispersed, or enslaved. The famous Jewish historian Josephus wrote and estimated that 1.1 million Jews died in the war. After 70 AD, the Jewish believers in Judea just faded off the scene.

Jewish believers outside the nation more than likely carried on for a while but eventually died out. The nation of Isreal is being judicially blinded by God (Romans 11.25). Jews that do find salvation do so through Paul’s gospel (1 Corinthians 15:4)  There is no longer Jew and Gentiles (Romans 3:21-23) we are all equal and all members of one Church, which is His Body, the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 10.32).
