The phrase "Daughters of Jerusalem" is a Hebrew idiom.
This short video explores this phrase's linguistic and cultural context and what Jesus means when he uses it in Luke 23:28.
Judgment is descending on Jerusalem.
In 66 AD, the Zealots pushed Israel into a war with Rome. By 70 AD, Jerusalem was under siege, and the villages outside the city walls were destroyed.
The words spoken by Jesus as he is on his way to be crucified are prophetic, and concern Jerusalem's coming judgment.
Understanding the phrase "Daughters of Jerusalem" helps us understand the overall meaning of what Jesus is saying in Luke 23:28-31.
