Your comment makes no sense. Everyone knows that there were wicked priests prior to those that brought down the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. Case in point, the priest who ruled at the time of the first "Abomination of Desolation" caused by Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 BC (to which Jesus referred to when he predicted the desolation that would come from the Romans) was very wicked. He is talked about in the Dead Sea Scrolls:

How is it that you don't understand that the destruction of the Temple in the first century is exactly what Christ predicted???
You say that there will be yet another Temple built and desolated. Where does the Bible say that? And how could it be true if the Jews are rejecting God? It won't matter if they stack up a pile of rocks and call it a "Temple." If God never calls it "My House" it can't be desolated in the way that Christ predicted.
The rejection of the fulfillment of Christ's prophecies implies he was a false prophet. He was perfectly clear and unambiguous. The prophecy of the destruction of the Temple would be fulfilled in the first century, during the lifetime of the generation to whom he spoke. Nothing in the Bible is stated with more clarity.
