1Sahil B = ""Some among the Hebrews seem to have fled Jerusalem for Pella when the uprising began. But there is no evidence to suggest that the
core leadership of the mother assembly abandoned Jerusalem. Rather, they maintained their presence in the city of Jesus’s death and
resurrection, eagerly awaiting his return, right up to the moment that Titus’s army arrived and wiped the holy city and its inhabitants—both
Christians and Jews—off the face of the earth. With the destruction of Jerusalem, the connection between the assemblies scattered across
the Diaspora and the mother assembly rooted in the city of God was permanently severed, and with it the last physical link between the
Christian community and Jesus the Jew. Jesus the zealot.
Jesus of Nazareth."-Zealot, Reza Aslan "
