So whether you believe he said it or not, the temple was destroyed by Romans in 70 AD.

Thanks for the info though.
Again, if one believes the story, Jesus is apparently angry that the prevailing Jewish religious authorities and polity (represented by "Jerusalem") have rejected his claim as Messiah. The punishment for this rejection is a prophesied destruction of the Temple, along with Jerusalem. So, "Israel" is being punished for its rejection of the "Messiah." How is that out of context?
