Jesus said every stone of the temple would be thrown down.  How can Jews still pray at the wailing wall?

by Robert Brow  (www.brow.on.ca)

What people call the wailing wall consists the huge stones that were used as a revetment for the foundations of the Jewish temple site built on the site of Mount Moriah.  When we hear a building is razed to the ground we do not assume that the foundations have been dug up and removed.  So Jesus' prediction of the destruction of the temple was indeed fulfilled in AD 70 by Titus the General of  the Roman legions that took the city.
