City of Jacob (Malay geography model)

City destroyed at the crucifixion

City of Jacob (Malay geography model)

Wicked city mentioned only in connection with its destruction at the time of Jesus’ death. The Lord caused the city and its inhabitants to be buried “in the depths of the earth,” and he “made hills and valleys in the places thereof” to hide their wickedness, so that the blood of the martyred prophets and Saints might cease to testify against them.
