Měḥaššěbê ̉ittōts. This is a technical word for Rabbinic Bible teachers and their enthusiasts. These arose sometime after the A.D.70 Destruction of Jerusalem. As the seventh decade (i.e., A.D.132) loomed they began to harold a false and misleading message to the Jewish world about the triumph of Judaism against the Roman Empire in a do-or-die military contest. The Měḥaššěbê ̉ittōts—Jewish “calculators of the time”—planned and then plunged the post-A.D.70 Jewish State into a cataclysmic war, a war that caused the immediate oblivion and disappearance of the nation for eighteen long centuries. No narrative of New Testament eschatology could or would be complete without the second century end of the political state of Judaea (which completion came about by the egregious errors and willful lies that caused the destruction of Jerusalem in the first place).
