Questions about the great revolt; the Roman-Jewish war that led to the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus

In AD 66 a war began between Rome and the Jews in and around Judea--Rome saw it as a revolt/rebellion against its power and sent soldiers in to quell the rebellion.

The matter was not quickly solved and broke out into full-fledged battles. The historian Flavius Josephus is a primary source for this war, including its most infamous event--the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple in AD 70.

This resulted in a permanent reduction in Jewish political power within the Roman provinces.
