Crucifying God’s Son was a grave and disastrous sin, a humiliating and agonizing death to God the Son. And it was the Jews, especially their leadership, that pressed the Romans to do it.
Thus, the great punishment of AD 70, and the end of the Jews as special, set-apart covenant people.
But we believers and churches must also be wary of spiritually re-crucifying and humiliating the Word of God, lest we face the same fate. Individually, and collectively.

I will not be highlighting all that could be said, but these few observations should help show why AD 70 is so significant for Christian theology and practice.
